Short Take: Red Sox tally double digits again against hapless White Sox pitching

Today's Red Sox-White Sox matchup at US Cellular Field had all the makings of a disaster. For starters, the game was nationally televised, which means that baseball fans from Maine to Marin County get to hear Tim McCarver on the Fox network babble for 3 hours about the curse of the Bambino, and how much he loves coming to Chicago as long as he's calling a game at Wrigley. Second, the 5th starter's spot in the rotation was due up for the Sox, meaning some harried and hopeless kid fresh off the bus from Charlotte would have to face one of the most potent lineups in the majors. Finally, today's game was a day game immediately following a night game, meaning that at least some of the Sox regular starters would have the day off, forcing Ozzie Guillen to trot out not only his AAA starter, but also 2 AAA-caliber outfielders. Sure enough, disaster did indeed strike, and the Red Sox down the White Sox 10-7, sending the Southsiders back to the .500 mark for the first time since April and knocking them a season-high 7 games behind division-leading Minnesota.

Let's face it, Josh Stewart didn't have a prayer today. Freshly recalled, Stewart took the hill to start the game and gave up 3 runs before he even recorded an out. Johnny "Caveman" Damon started the game off with a double which Joe Borchard managed to throw back to the infield after playing it off his shin. Damon was moved over to third by Orlando Cabrera, who reached on a grounder which Stewart completely misplayed, making a play which looked more like a cat coughing up a furball than a major league pitcher flipping a ball to first. The next batter was Manny Ramirez, who smacked Stewart's first offering over the bullpen and up about 10 rows to stake the Red Sox to a 3-0 lead. Stewart would stetle down temporarily after that, and escape the inning with no further damage done. Refusing to play dead, the White Sox answered back in their half of the frame. Willie Harris led off the inning with a single, and Paul Konerko blasted him home with a 2 run homer to pull the Sox back within one. That woudl be the closest they'd get all afternoon. The Carmines continued to peck away at Stewart, adding 2 runs in the 2nd and 3rd. Once again, the white Sox tried to work their way back into it in their half of the 3rd. With Juan Uribe at 2nd base and Paul Konerko at first, Aaron Rowand singles to pack the sacks. Gload singles to bring home Uribe, and then recently recalled Jamie Burke strokes a single to score Konerko and Rowand and cut the deficit to 7-5.

The Sox would get another chance to put more runs on the board in the 6th, with Carl Everett up to bat and the bases loaded. Everett would work the count to 2-2, but then strike out swinging on some low-and-away garbage. Everett then goes ballistic on home plate umpire Doug Eddings, arguing that the pitch before strike 3 was high, resulting in his ejection. While his argument was somewhat valid, Carl should have been asking himself why he chases low pitches instead. By that point, the Red Sox had scored 3 more runs, mostly due to Jason Varitek having his way with Jon Adkins and Cliff Politte. Ross Gload added an RBI single and Joe Crede homered late, but it was nowhere near enough.

The rubber match vs Detroit is tomorrow night at 7:05, with Wilfredo Ledezma facing Jon Garland. With the Indians' bubble rapdily bursting, let's see if we can't move back into second place!

Ozzieball Update:
 Sox show that they can still manufacture runs in the 3rd, but the dominant trend is still swinging for the fences.
