One Is All It Takes!

May 13 vs Baltimore


Today's temperature:

"Home Sweet Home...and KW's kids get the spotlight off me for a couple days."

Short Take:  Loaiza shuts down the Orioles!

  • Hey Sox fans! When is one lonely run on 8 hits enough to shut down the opposition? The answer is simple: when you're playing the feeble Baltimore Orioles. Sox win 1-0 thanks to solid pitching by Estaban Loaiza.
  • There's really not much offense to recap tonight: the Sox lone run comes on a Miguel Olivo groundout which brings home Magglio Ordonez.   
  • Pitching tonight was the name of the game, and Estaban Loaiza knew how to do it. The non-roster invitee continues to show he's the real ace of the Sox staff, scattering 5 hits over 7 innings of work while striking out two. Estaban only gives up 2 walks...most of the rest of the slugs on our pitching staff have given up that many in an inning thus far this season. Loaiza improves to 7-1 on the year and proves that maybe April wasn't an aberration.
  • Frank Thomas didn't look like he was getting nothing to hit tonight. The Big Hurt goes 2 for 4, with his first hit of the night falling for the 400th double of his career. Frank also got shafted on an atrocious call in the 8th inning, where he was clearly ahead of the ball but called out. This led to Jerry Manuel's second "ejection just for the sake of getting ejected" this season after he chewed out the legally blind Charlie Reliford.
  • D'Angelo Jimenez also had a good night, going 2 for 4. And Paul Konerko showed some good patience at the plate, drawing 2 walks. He's still swinging from the heels at a lot of high heat and missing, but like Hawk Harrelson keeps saying, he's bound to come around.
  • Who was that gangly kid with the funky goatee who came on in the 9th? That, my friends, was Billy Koch. Koch looked like the closer we traded for in the offseason, retiring all 3 batters that he faced in a scoreless 9th. Just when we thought it was safe to start bashing Tom Gordon, the Flash also pitched a solid inning to help preserve the W for Loaiza.
  • Sox and O's duke it out tomorrow night at the Cell. Danny Wright tries to get back in the groove in his second start off the disabled list.

Tinkerer Update:
 Graffy in the lineup again playing 3rd. Jose back in at SS, bats second.
