No Yuletide Carroll

May 19 at Kansas City


Daily Sox Crop Report:
Spring Rains Supplying Growth for Sox Lumber
Our offense saved our piss-poor start.

Short Take:   Scott Carroll continues to stink, but the Sox offense and bullpen come to the rescue.

I think it's safe to say that the novelty of Scott Carroll has quickly worn off. He was a nice feel-good story in his first couple of starts. Since then, he's been hit hard. Without overwhelming stuff, he needs to be pinpoint with his control, which he has not. We got down early in the game, but thanks to a roaring comeback in KC, we overcame a 5-0 deficit to win 7-6.

It was an ugly first inning. Scott Carroll allowed the first five batters he faced to reach base. Gordon Beckham didn't help matters. After Carroll allowed a single to open the game, Alcides Escobar hit a chopper to Beckham. Of course, Beckham didn't even touch it, the ball went through his legs on a sure double play ball. That opened the floodgates. RBI hits from Hosmer, Billy Butler, and Lorenzo Cain put us in an immediate 5-0 hole before we even stepped up to the plate.

In the top of the third, Marcus Simien opened the inning with a single and Beckham drew a one-out walk. Alexei Ramirez then came up and took KC starter Jason Vargas deep for a three-run shot to make it 5-3.

We would cut it to 5-4 in the top of the fourth when Dayan Viciedo took Vargas out deep to left for a solo shot.

In the bottom of the fourth, with a man on, Carroll allowed another run-scoring single to Eric Hosmer to put us down by two. He departed at that point with the ugly stat line of four innings, giving up nine hits, six earned runs, and throwing almost 100 pitches. Yikes! Please, Sale, hurry up and get back!

In the bottom of the fourth, the Sox finished off Vargas. After Alexei Ramirez knocked in Eaton on a ground out, Dunn walked. Up came Paulie to save the day. Konerko took Vargas out to center field for a two-run bomb to make it 7-6 and complete the comeback for the Sox.

Our bullpen did the job from there. Putnan and Belisario held things down until Lindstrom came on in the ninth. Of course, Lindstrom allowed a single to open the ninth. For the second time in the game, Alcides Escobar hits a piece of crap, this time to Lindstrom. This, too, goes through his legs after Lindstom tweaked his ankle coming off the mound to put two-on and nobody out. Fortunately, Scott Downs came in to strike out Hosmer. Jake Petricka relieved Downs and picked off KC pinch runner Jarrod Dyson, who was caught roaming between second and third. Jake retired Billy Butler on a weak grounder to seal the game. Big win after some really ugly baseball.
