Saturday Game + Belisario = Loss

August 2nd vs. the Minnesota Twins


Daily Sox Crop Report:
Withering
August is a tough month for crops, especially weak ones like the bullpen beans.

Short Take:The Sox took a 6-4 lead into the eighth, only to see it evaporate through Belisario's erratic pitching as they lose to the Twins 8-6.

The Sox bullpen blew another lead tonight, this time to the Minnesota Twins. The final was 8-6 and it shouldn't have ended that way.

Scott Carroll started tonight and he started awkwardly, giving up two runs in the first. It could've been a lot worse; he had the bases loaded with no outs after giving up the first run, but induced a double play and a flyout to get out of it with only the two runs.

After the Minnesota meatballs picked up another run in the third, the Sox got on the board when Alejandro De Aza scored from third on a 4-3 groundout by Gordon Beckham. An RBI is an RBI, I guess, though I'd rather see Beckham do it with hits.

But the Twinkies stretched it to 4-1 in their half of the fourth, and Alexei Ramirez made it 4-2 in the bottom of the frame with his 11th homer.

Our friends in home stripes had a big ol' time in the bottom of the seventh, scoring four runs on a string of productive hits. RBI doubles by Adam Eaton and Gordon Beckham brought in three, and a single by Ramirez drove in number four. 6-4 for the Sox at the end of seven. Looking good, wouldn't you say?

You would say that until you saw Ronald Belisario come in to pitch the eighth. As is his wont, he was responsible, via two singles and a hit batsman, for the three runs the Minnihahas scored that inning. Belisario handed the lead back to the interlopers to make it 7-6. To add more injury to the insult, Danny Santana hit a solo homer in the top of the ninth off Daniel Webb to make it 8-6.

The Sox had a chance in the eighth after Adrian Nieto drew a two-out walk and was replaced on the bases with Moises Sierra. Eaton hit a sharp liner to left and was called out at second on a play that was questionable. Robin Ventura challenged it, but the myopic reviewers in New York upheld the call; watching it on TV it was clear to this (ahem) sharp-eyed viewer that Eaton's hand was on the bag before the tag was applied, but they didn't ask me.

Too bad, because the final score held up at 8-6, marking yet another Saturday loss for our weak-end warriors. In 1981 I thoroughly enjoyed the group Loverboy singing "Everybody's Working for the Weekend." Watching the Sox this season, I don't think they've ever heard that tune.

The Futures Market:
I'm buying big on Adam Eaton. I'm also composting Ronald Belisario.

Adam Eaton

Big night for the little guy. 4-for-5 with three doubles and two RBIs. Too bad he didn't pitch in the eighth.
