PK 2K Not Quite Enough

August 23 at Angels


Levels Finished:
2
They started out awful, unable to dodge anything, but evened it out before blowing up like a fireball.

Short Take:   Paulie records his 2000th hit, but Sox fall on a walk-off

Oh White Sox. I don't know what is up with you. In his worst start in months, Mark Buehrle threw 114 pitches in just six innings before the bullpen took over in the Sox loss to the Angels.

Buehrle had a rough start. In the first inning, the Angels scored an unearned run, as the Sox committed two errors. First was Alexei Ramirez's error that allowed Peter Bourjos to reach first. He came around to score on Torii Hunter's single and an error by Juan Pierre. Buehrle lasted six innings and allowed a run in each of the first four innings. The last three runs were earned, and he was pulled.

Jesse Crain came on for 1.1 innings. He only allowed one hit before being replaced by Will Ohman. Ohman faced Bobby Abreu, threw one pitch, and got him to fly out to Alex Rios. Jason Frasor came on, and that's when the tides turned.

Frasor walked Hunter, allowed a single to Mark Trumbo, and finally recorded the last out of the eighth by getting Howie Kendrick to ground out. The ninth caused more problems for Frasor. He stuck out Vernon Wells to start the inning, but then he fell apart. He gave up a single to Erick Aybar, a single to Alberto Callaspo, and an intentional walk to load the bases. On a 1-0 count, Frasor gave up the walk-off single to Bourjos, giving the Angels a 5-4 win. I don't want to even talk about Gordon Beckham's bad positioning to allow Callaspo to move into second. It makes me angry.

The White Sox scored some runs and eventually tied the game. In the third inning, they scored their first two runs. Brent Morel singled and scored a run on Beckham's double. With two outs, Alejandro De Aza singled, allowing Beckham to score. The Sox came closer in the fifth when they brought the score to 4-3. Morel hit a ground rule double, and with one out, Pierre singled in Morel.

The excitement came in the eighth, however. While it was exciting that the Sox tied the game and gave themselves an opportunity to win, it was HOW they did it that was more exciting. With two outs, De Aza had to get on base in order to give the Sox a glimmer of hope. He did just that with a single. He then stole second base in Paul Konerko's at-bat. With De Aza on second, Konerko hit a single, and De Aza came around to score. This doesn't sound very exciting right now. The exciting part is that single by Konerko was the 2000th hit of his career. The Sox unfortunately went on to lose the game, but King Konerko hit his milestone and gave the Sox a chance.

The two errors in the first and Beckham's bad positioning were all low points in the game. But the low point that made me the angriest came in the seventh. Tyler Flowers hit a single to get on base. Brent Morel came up with one out and would have grounded to second. There would have been two outs with Flowers at second, but Flowers decided to push it. And the last out was recorded at third.

Now, I can't play baseball to save my life. I can barely hit a ball. But I learned quickly and early on in my fandom that you NEVER MAKE THE LAST OUT AT THIRD. You just don't!

The Sox finish their quick series in Anaheim tomorrow night. Zach Stewart faces Jered Weaver. The Sox sit 6.5 games behind the Tigers and just half a game behind the Indians.
