Angels and Demons

May 10 vs LA Angels of Anaheim


Today's Game Rating:
2 Stars
The Sox battled back but more mistakes doom us again.

Short Take:   The Sox rallied to tie the game at five, before the usual suspects reared their ugly heads as we lose 7-5.

Dylan Axelrod (0-3) did not have his best outing for the Sox on Friday night. He gave up six runs, five earned, in six innings of work. However, more Sox mistakes came up to bite us again. In what seems like the millionth time this season, we either have a lead, or rally, just in time for our demons to show. Those demons being errors and mental mistakes. Friday night was no different as the Sox lost 7-5 to the Angels.

Things started well in the bottom of the first. Alejandro De Aza took Angels starter, Barry Enright, deep to right for his seventh homer to put us up 1-0.

Axelrod ran into problems in the top of the third. The game became tied at 1-1 thanks to hits by Hank Conger, Brendan Harris and Mike Trout for LAA. Albert Pujols then hit a two-run double, followed by an RBI single from Mark Trumbo to put them up 4-1.

With LAA leading 5-1 after a Brendan Harris homer, the Sox would answer in the bottom of the fourth. Alex Rios started it off with double before Enright walked both Dunn and Konerko to load the bases. Enright uncorked a wild pitch to score Rios. Recently reactivated Dayan Viciedo followed that with a two-run double to bring the Sox within a run. Tyler Flowers ended Enright's night with an RBI single that tied the game 5-5.

Axelrod exited in the top of the seventh after Hank Conger reached on yet another team error, this time by Conor Gillaspie. Matt Lindstrom came in to relieve, only to allow singles to some guy named J.B. Shuck and Mike Trout to score Conger. With Shuck on third, Tyler Flowers, of course, allowed a passed ball. Lindstrom decided that having his thumb up his butt was a better idea than trying to cover home plate as Shuck scored to put LAA up 7-5. Instead of walks this time, errors and more mental lapses allowed more opposing runners to score.

Nate Jones came in to pitch both the seventh and eighth innings and did not allow a run. I almost fell of my couch in shock.

Of course, the anemic Sox offense could do nothing in the final five innings. LAA's Ernesto Frieri used high heat in the ninth to blow away both Wise and De Aza. Keppinger, who blows by the way, didn't even swing the darn bat as he watched in amazement a called third strike to end the game.

Unless we can catch, throw, think, and hit correctly more hot garbage may be to follow. Jerome Williams (1-1, 3.16 ERA) will face Jose Quintana (2-0, 3.86 ERA) for the Sox on Saturday, May 11th. The game starts at 6:10 p.m. and can be seen on WGN.

Hawk and Stoney's Thumb Guide:
 Hawk: "Thumbs down Stone Pony, our defense just flat out stinks. Dad gummit!" Stone: "Thumbs down, errors and Lindstrom were the icing on the cake."
