"After another grueling day at the gym, the Sox offensive output was all Maggs needed to sink into a nice, early evening nap."

Short Take: Sox derail, managing 4 hits, 2 runs, and commit 3 errors en route to ugly loss.

With the Sox offense scoring 22 runs in their last two games, things were looking well for the Pale Hose as they faced Darrel May, who had allowed 11 runs in 10 innings of work over two games against the Sox previous to tonight. On the hill for the Sox was Mark Buehrle, who had not won a game since July 21. He has had a tough 0-2 in three starts since, getting only two runs of support in all three games. Unfortunately for the Sox, the third time was the charm for May, as the Sox again failed to support their top lefty, losing the second game of the three game set, 4-2.

Nothing was going the Sox’s way early on. In the first, Robbie Alomar reached on an error by third baseman Desi Relaford with an out. Following a strike out by Carlos Lee, Paul Konerko walked. Aaron Rowand struck out to end the inning and that pretty much sums up the total offensive output the Sox managed through the first 2/3 of the game. The Sox base runner came in the 6th, when Carlos Lee doubled to left field; However, Paul Konerko flew out to center to strand him.

On the other side, Mark Buehrle pitched another solid game. He allowed four runs; three earned, but kept his team in the game until the final out. After retiring the first seven Royals he faced, he allowed an infield single to Ruben Gotay. Buehrle’s throw to first went wide, allowing Gotay second. Rookie Andres Blanco singled to right field to score Gotay. Joe Borchard’s throw to the plate was also wide, allowing Blanco second, and he came around to score on a single by David DeJesus.

While the Sox maintained mediocrity, two of the most notable Sox killers in recent memory helped pad the Kansas City lead. Joe Randa singled to lead off the sixth and Mike Sweeney dropped a homer into the Bullpen Sports Bar to make the score 4-0.

Finally in the seventh the Sox came to life. Aaron Rowand led off things with a single and pulled into second on a wild pitch by Darrel May. Joe Borchard’s single moved him to third base and Rowand came around to score on a sacrifice fly by Juan Uribe. However, the vacuum combo of Joe Crede and Sandy Alomar, Jr. that occupied the 8 and 9 spots of the order meekly ended the inning.

Darrel May came out to start the ninth in search of his fourth complete game of the year. However a lead off single to Paul Konerko and four-pitch walk to Aaron Rowand drew Tony Pena from the bullpen to call on Jaime Cerda. He lived dangerously, walking Joe Borchard to load the bases with no outs. However, Juan Uribe took two hacks before popping out to short. Joe Crede then came up and drove a fly ball to right-center that was gloved by David DeJesus. The sacrifice fly scored Konerko, but it left the Sox with one out left to live. Pinch hitter Carl Everett went up hacking, as well, swinging at two balls before grounding one right back to Cerda. He batted the ball down in self-defense before making the throw to first to end any hope of a rally.

The Sox and Royals wrap up their series tomorrow afternoon at the Cell. Freddy Garcia goes to the hill against Jimmy Serrano, who is making his second start of the year. In his last one, he was touched up for 4 runs and 7 hits in 4.2 IP against the Angels. Though, knowing these Sox, they’ll make this clown look like the next 300-game winner. Game time is 1:05 PM Central and it will be aired on Fox Sports Net.

Ozzieball Update:
Willie Harris and Robbie Alomar combine to form a nice sinkhole at the top of the line-up. In 8 at bats between the two, they managed to never reach first.
