Crummy Crosstown Cup

This performance was so bad that they owe stars.

Short Take:   Peavy bombs as Sox lose to Cubs

Two days in a row. Two days in a row that Sox starters have only lasted four innings before being pulled for a pinch hitter. Three games in a row against the Cubs that the Sox lost. Personally, I hate these games. They do nothing for me. But there are many Sox fans who actually like the Crosstown games. Unfortunately, those fans are joining me today, at least temporarily, after the Sox lost again to the Cubs, this time 8-3.

Jake Peavy is normally super fantastic and wonderful. Today he was definitely not super or fantastic or wonderful. He was downright awful. In the four innings he pitched, Peavy gave up six runs on eight hits, including the grand slam to Travis Wood. Yes, the Travis Wood who was the starting pitcher for the Cubs. Wood was the first pitcher since Jake Westbrook in 2011 to hit a grand slam.

Like yesterday, the bullpen fared a little better than they have been. Nate Jones pitched two solid innings, giving up a solo home run to Nate Schierholtz and one other hit. Matt Lindstrom gave up a walk in the seventh, and that was all. Brian Omogrosso pitched the eighth, walking a batter and giving up a solo home run to Luis Valbuena. The Cubs seem to like hitting home runs off Sox pitchers. Then again, everyone is hitting off Sox pitchers.

While Peavy was bad today, the offense was just as bad. They picked up eight hits and four walks but only scored three runs. Paul Konerko and Alejandro De Aza each picked up two hits, and they were the two who knocked in all three runs, Konkero with two and De Aza with one. Alexei Ramirez, Alex Rios, Jeff Keppinger and Tyler Flowers each picked up a hit as well. De Aza also picked up two of the four walks while Tyler Greene and Hector Gimenez each walked as pinch hitters.

After that disappointing series, the Sox head to Oakland. They will send Dylan Axelrod to the mound tomorrow night. Axelrod has picked up a win in each of his last three trips to the mound, so let's try to make it four in a row. The offense will have to deal with Bartolo Colon. He has only allowed four walks in the 61.1 innings he has pitched this year, so it looks like the Sox will need to hit in order to get anyone on base.

WSI's
Hawk and Stoney's Thumb Guide:
 STONE: This series was bad, bad, bad. Thumbs down. Hawk is simmering in silence, so I'll give it a thumbs down from him too.
