Short Take: Lousy defense and lousy relief cost the Sox another game

Hey Sox fans! Do you have a taste for watching disasters? Do you enjoy watching NASCAR races just for the crashes? Do you insist on slowing down ever time you see even a minor fender bender on the highway? If so, watching this team ought to provide you with plenty of amusement. The slumping Sox fall victim to the Detroit Tigers for the third straight night en route to their seventh loss in a row by a score of 3-2 in 10 innings. The loss conbined with a Minnesota win puts the Sox 5 games back in the AL Central race, and 3rd place is starting to look like a virtual certainty for this anemic bunch. On a night when the Sox and Tigers pair tribute to the Negro Leagues by wearing throwback uniforms, many are left to wonder if we'd be better off with 99-year-old Ted "Double Duty" Radcliffe in the lineup.

Ace lefty Mark Buehrle took the hill for the Sox, coming off a horrendous outing against the Twins this past Monday. Mark gutted out 9 strong innings at Comerica Park allowing just 2 runs on 5 hits, but it's pretty hard to pick up a win when your offense only scratches out 2 runs as well, and when your starting shortstop can't seem to put anything in his glove. Buehrle gave way to Cliff Politte, who was tagged with tonight's loss after loading the bases in the 10th and walking in the winning Tigers run, just like Damaso Marte did the night before.

As for the Sox offense, they're back in full-on sleepwalk mode. The Sox didn't even score a run until the 5th inning, when an Aaron Rowand double brough home Jose Valentin. The Tigers knotted the game back up at 1-1 in the bottom half of the inning. In the sixth, Carlos Lee would score on a Paul Konerko single. Konerko somehow found his way to 3rd base, and had the chance to score on a Jose Valentin flyout, but Tigers right fielder Bobby Higginson rifled a throw home to Ivan Rodriguez. Konerko executed one of the worst slides ever seen on a major league diamond, looking like he was more likely to slide into the on-deck circle than home plate and ended up being tagged out. After Konerko, the Sox wouldn't have another baserunner all night, as they go down meekly yet again.

The series finale from Detroit is tomorrow afternoon at 12:05 CDT, with Freddy Garcia facing Jeremy Bonderman. Can big Freddy stop the bleeding?

Ozzieball Update:
 Aaron Rowand is the only guy on this team right now playing something even resembling baseball, so Ozzieball is a pretty tough thing to come by.
