Losing Ugly

April 29 vs. Tigers


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"Iguchi with 3 hits, and Rowand with the game tying RBI. Too bad no one else could muster up a hit with the bases loaded!"

Short Take:  Sox lose 3-2 in 11 frustrating innings.

Today's UN-magic number is 16. That's the number of runners left on base tonight for the Chicago White Sox. The Sox came into tonights game on a two game skid, and looking to break that streak tonight when Jose Contreras took the mound to open a 6-game homestand against the Detroit Tigers. Contreras was coming off his hamstring injury and with the cold weather at The Cell, you would've thought Contreras could be rocked. But, Contreras was on his game, it was the Sox offense that couldn't buy a hit when they needed it most.

The Sox first run came in the 5th, with 2 outs and the bases loaded Carl Everett drew a walk from Tigers pitcher Nate Robertson. Paul Konerko was the next batter and ended the threat by grounding out.

The Tigers came right back in their half of the 6th, Rondell White homered to tie the game 1-1. That would be the only run Contreras would give up, he went six strong innings, giving up three hits, and striking out six. The Sox got another chance to break the game open in their half of the 6th. With the bases loaded again and with 2 outs, Scott Posdednik hit a weak ground ball to first for the out.

The Tigers moved in on the Sox failure to execute in the 7th. Ivan Rodriguez doubled to score Nook Logan to make it 2-1 Tigers.

The Sox had to face a tough cookie in the 9th inning down 2-1. But, it looked like our Sox finally showed up to play some baseball on a cold south side night. Troy Percival loaded the bases WITH 0 OUTS, Aaron Rowand batted and hit a sac fly to tie the game 2-2, and advancing Pablo Ozuna to third base. Now, all we need was another sac fly, or a base hit which was something hard to come by all night. Timo Perez pinch hitted for Jermaine Dye and struck out. AJ Pierzynski was intentionally walked to get to Joe Crede. Again, another bases loaded situation... and again... nothing. Crede poped out to first to end the 9th.

With nothing going on in the 10th, the Tigers batted in the 11th facing Shingo. Shingo's inept ability to pull out close games showed when he gave up the eventual winning run. He walked the lead off hitter Carlos Pena, and he scored on Nook Logan's triple to make it 3-2 Tigers.

Bad, bad, bad. The Sox now fall to 16-7. They have an ugly 3-game losing streak and Orlando Hernandez hopes to stop the bleeding tomorrow night before it gets worse! Game time is 6:05pm and the game can be seen on WGN.
