Too Much Lance Lynn

June 13 at St. Louis


Today's Sox Crew:
Out to Lunch
The Sox construction crew just couldn't get the job done today.

Short Take: A good start by Jake Peavy goes to waste as the Sox hitters have no answers for the St. Louis ace.

Sometimes in baseball, you just get beat, ya know? Such was the case Wednesday night for the White Sox as they ran into one of the hottest pitchers in the National League -- St. Louis right-hander Lance Lynn.

Lynn improved his record to 10-2 on the season as he limited the South Siders to only three hits over 7 1/3 innings and struck out 12 in the Cardinals' 1-0 victory. It's too bad, because the Sox got a pretty damn good effort from their starting pitcher -- Jake Peavy.

Peavy went seven innings and allowed only four hits. Unfortunately, one of them was a solo home run off the bat of Carlos Beltran in the third inning. That would be all the scoring on this night. It was just the second loss of the season for Peavy (6-2), both of them by 1-0 margins.

The Sox did have their opportunites, the best of which came in the fifth inning when Alex Rios laced a leadoff triple into the left-center field gap. It looked like the Sox would at least tie the game, but that's when Lynn made his best pitches of the night. He struck out A.J. Pierzynski and Alexei Ramirez. After an intentional walk to eighth-place hitter Orlando Hudson, Lynn fanned Peavy to escape any damage. Stupid National League rules. I hate them.

Alas, we can't blame the National League rules for the opportunity the Sox missed in the ninth inning against St. Louis closer Jason Motte. Alejandro De Aza led off the inning with a single off the glove of Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal and advanced to second base on a bunt by Gordon Beckham. Dayan Viciedo followed with a rocket up the middle that seemed ticketed for center field, but Furcal made a nice stop to keep the ball on the infield. Viciedo was safe at first with an infield single, placing runners at the corners with one out for the Sox captain Paul Konerko. Unfortunately, Konerko could not come through this time. He was fooled on an offspeed pitch by Motte on a 3-1 count and grounded into a game-ending 5-4-3 double play.

It was a good game by both teams and a tough loss for the Sox, who will try to get back on the winning track Thursday night in the finale of this three-game set. Two struggling right-handers will be on the mound as Gavin Floyd (4-6, 5.38 ERA) will pitch for the Sox. He'll be opposed by Jake Westbrook (4-6, 4.25 ERA). Game time is 7:15 and you can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

No execution on offense? Damn, I thought we got rid of Walker.
