Sox Bats Stuck in Traffic

April 10 at Washington


Today's Game Rating:
2 STARS
One star for each run scored. Meh.

Short Take: The umpires were late and the Sox bats never arrived in a 5-2 loss to the Washington Nationals.

Wednesday night's game between the White Sox and the Washington Nationals was delayed for 16 minutes because the umpires got caught in a traffic jam on their way to Nationals Park. Seriously.

That's one I haven't heard before, but by the end of the game, I found myself wishing the umpires had never shown up. Maybe then we could have all been spared the agony of a 5-2 White Sox loss, a defeat characterized by poor offense and a subpar start from right-hander Gavin Floyd (0-2).

The South Siders got off to a decent enough start, scratching a run across in the top of the first inning against Nationals righty Jordan Zimmermann (2-0). Jeff Keppinger singled, advanced to third on an Alex Rios double and scored on an RBI groundout by Adam Dunn. 1-0 Sox.

The score remained that way until the bottom of the fourth inning when Floyd unleashed a cutter that didn't cut to Bryce Harper, who deposited the lousy pitch into the seats 420 feet away. Sadly, once Floyd gives up one run, he usually gives up two or three more. Later in the inning, Ian Desmond doubled and scored on a Danny Espinosa single that put the Nationals up 2-1.

Washington added another run in the fifth when Jayson Werth, Harper and Ryan Zimmerman put together back-to-back-to-back singles. Wouldn't it be nice to see the Sox offense do that? Hasn't happened much this year.

Trailing 3-1, the Sox got one run back in the sixth. Alejandro De Aza doubled, advanced to third on a ground out by Keppinger and scored on a ground out by Rios. Hey, at least the Sox didn't waste a leadoff double this time. There was hope as the Sox cut their deficit to 3-2.

No matter. Floyd didn't make it through the bottom half of the inning. Washington added two more runs to go up 5-2 and conclude the scoring for the evening. Over the final three innings, the Sox never got the tying run to the plate. Blah.

With the loss, the Sox have dropped the first two games of this series. The Nationals, meanwhile, remain unbeaten at home (5-0). The South Siders will try to salvage one Thursday night when they send right-hander Dylan Axelrod (0-0, 0.00 ERA) to the mound. The Nationals will counter with right-hander Dan Haren (0-1, 13.50 ERA). Game time is 6:05 p.m. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

Dadgumit, Stone Pony, when is Gavin Floyd ever going to pitch to his potential? TWO THUMBS DOWN!
