Motown Meltdown

July 22 at Detroit Tigers


Today's Sox Crew:
Explosives Technicians
Bad starting pitching and an offense not firing on all cylinders results in five consecutive losses.

Short Take:   Philip Humber didn't have it, giving up four home runs in three innings - a recipe for disaster.

After dropping the first two games in Detroit and four consecutive, the Sox looked to right the ship Sunday afternoon at Comerica Park. Unfortunately, this time it was the starting pitching that did the Sox in, as Philip Humber (4-5) surrendered four home runs in just three innings of work, accounting for all six Tiger runs. The damage was done and the Sox found themselves on the short end of a 6-4 score.

Humber didn't have it today, to say the least. He allowed back-to-back home runs in the home half of the first by Quentin Berry and Miguel Cabrera, which gave the Tigers a 3-1 lead. They'd add to that lead two innings later when they'd score three more runs, also courtesy of the long ball. Cabrera hit his second on the afternoon and Brennan Boesch smacked his second home run in the series, which gave Detroit a comfortable 6-1 lead.

Jacob Turner (1-1) looked like Cy Young against the anemic Sox offense. Once again, a mediocre pitcher earned his first Major League victory off the South Siders. That seems to occur more with the Sox than any other team in baseball. Turner stymied the Sox bats for most of the afternoon, only giving up three runs in six innings of work; enough for not only his first victory, but a quality start, as well. Turner gave up two of his three runs in the sixth when Alex Rios hit his 14th home run of the season, accounting for two runs and making it a 6-3 ballgame. The Sox added a run in the seventh when Kevin Youkilis hit his ninth home run of the season and fifth in a Sox uniform, but it was too little, too late.

Despite scoring first and having the lead in every single one of the last five games, the Sox have dropped all of them, solidifying a 3-7 road trip. Since last Sunday, the Sox have lost five games in the standings to the Tigers, who they once led by 3 1/2 games; but now they find themselves 1 1/2 games behind division-leading Detroit. After Sunday's loss, the Sox come home for a brief three-game set with the last-place Twins. Unfortunately for the Sox, it's Francisco Liriano (3-9, 4.81 ERA) who'll be getting the ball for Minnesota, as he seemingly owns the South Siders. The Sox will counter with Gavin Floyd (7-8, 4.54 ERA), who will be activated from the disabled list. The first pitch will be thrown at 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on Comcast SportsNet Plus.
