Johnny B. Bad: Orioles Pound Sox

April 28 at Baltimore Orioles


Toon Squad Update:
Winnie the "oh, Pooh"
Stinky start by Danks, and Eeyore says "It figures."

Short Take:  Orioles pummel John Danks and Jake Petricka, beating the Sox 10-2 and ending the winning streak at 6

The Sox have been so exciting to watch this season. They were coming into this game with a 16-6 record and had won 6 games in a row. I suppose it was time for a stinker like this one, probably because John Danks was starting.

For whatever reason, be it the contract or the principle of the thing, the Sox keep starting Danks. Today Danks ran true to his 2016 form, taking his record to a non-stellar 0-4 and forcing us fans to suffer through another painful performance. On social media, the calls for Danks to be released or traded are getting louder and louder.

Danks continued to show nothing, especially in the first 4 innings of the 5 innings that he lasted. He was constantly behind in the count. His 87-mph flat fastball must have seemed like a beach ball to the Orioles in 3rd inning. A walk, a double, and back to back homers and it was 5-2 Orioles. In 5 innings, Danks threw 96 pitches, and gave up 5 runs, 9 hits, and 2 walks, and got 4 strikeouts.

Jake Petricka took over in the 6th with the score 6-2. And as bad as Danks was, Petricka didn’t have it either. After an error by Brett Lawrie on a tough hop allowed an inherited runner to score, Johnathan Schoop bunted for a hit. Petricka walked Joey Rickard. Then Manny Machado’s grand slam made the score 10-2, and this game became well out of reach.

The only scoring the Sox could muster today was Todd Frazier’s two-run homer in the 1st inning; although they threatened several times, they came up empty.

The less said about this game, the better. Let’s hope the Sox can sweep it under the rug and start a new winning streak tomorrow.

And if I have to write another Danks TBGR, I just might have to call in sick…sick of watching John Danks pitch batting practice to opposing teams.

Tomorrow’s game features Carlos Rodon vs. Mike Wright, at 6:05 CST.

WSI's That's All, Folks:  Oh, bother. Let's forget this one and get 'em tomorrow.
