Sox (Kevin Walker) Can't Hold On

June 1 vs. Angles


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"Everett played his part, Rowand and Crede gave the Sox leads, and Podsednik with a stolen base. Thomas drew a walk in the 9th to prolong the loss."

Short Take:  Sox pitching couldn't hold on to leads, a costly error stopped the Sox winning ways and they drop the series finale 10-7.

If you looked out on the field tonight at U.S. Cellular when the Sox took the field, you would see Timo Perez run out to take his position. He stopped short of right field at first base, but that was no mistake. He was tonight's first basemen. A sigh of disbelief would not be out of the question. And that would be the sound that you would be making all night. The Sox tried in the 9th, but the Sox fell to the Angles for the third time this season by a score of 10-7. All in all, the Sox came back after the Angles took the lead, but the the bullpen (Kevin Walker) couldn't keep the Angles off the board. The Sox certainly didn't play like the best team in baseball either. But every team has their "off nights." Jose Contreras took the mound for the Sox was given a 2-0 lead after the first inning when Aaron Rowand put the Sox up with a 2-run home run.

The forth inning was a back breaker for Contreras.With one out, Garret Anderson singled and scored on Dallas McPherson's 2-run bomb that tied the game 2-2. Bengie Molina was next and he reached base on Timo Perez's error at first. That was costly. He advanced to second base when Casey Kotchman grounded out and he scored when Orlando Cabrera doubled. Adam Kennedy singled and that scored Cabrera. The Angles scored four times to take a 4-2 lead.

But the Sox came right back. In their half of the forth inning Carl Everett hit his seventh home run of the season to make it 4-3. In the sixth inning the Sox took a 5-4 lead when Everett doubled which scored Scott Podsednik who singled and Aaron Rowand who was hit by a pitch.

Kevin Walker came in to relief Contreras in the 7th, and he was hardly a relief. The Angles put another four spot on board. Chone Figgins lead off with a walk, then Darin Erstad singled and Figgins went to third base. Steve Finley hit a RBI single that scored Figgins. Today's Sox killer Dallas McPherson doubled which scored Erstad and moved Finley to third. Ozzie finally seen enough of Walker and took him out of the game and hopefully will be giving him his walking papers when El Duque comes back Friday. Luis Vizcaino came in and didn't solve any problems. The first batter he faced Bengie Molina singled which scored Finley and McPherson. After the dust settled, the Angles had a 8-4 lead.

Joe Crede hit a solo home run in the Sox half of the 7th to make it 8-6 Angles. Dustin Hermanson made a his first appearance in a week and seemed a little rusty. He gave up his first two runs of the 2005 season and it put the Angles up 10-6.

The Sox made the game interesting in the bottom of the ninth. With one out, Jermaine Dye doubled. Timo Perez struck out, but Joe Crede and Willie Harris walked to load the bases. Frank Thomas came in to pinch hit, he drew a walk that scored Dye and the score was 10-7. But, the Sox would leave the bases loaded when Juan Uribe struck out swinging.

At least they put the tying run on right? Tomorrow is a new day and you will still see the Sox in first place. Their record falls to 35-18. Thursday is a off day and on Friday the Sox will welcome AL Central foes Cleveland Indians for a weekend series. Orlando Hernandez will make his first start since being put on the DL in mid-May. Jake Westbrook will start for the Indians. Game time is at 7:05 and it will be televised on WCIU.

Ozzieball Update:
 4 of the 7 runs came via the long ball, too much back and forth for the Sox to handle.

Carl Everett

Drove in 3 runs, but still can't come out of the bullpen. We could've used that tonight.
