Letting One Slip Away

"Iguchi drove in the Sox only run. Buehrle pitched brilliantly, as per his usual."

Short Take:Another no-decision for Buehrle as Sox lose game in 9th.

The White Sox were ahead after the first two batters of the game, and held that lead until the bottom of the 9th inning. Problem was, they failed to score any more runs in between and the Padres were able to squeak out a 2-1 win over the Sox with a comeback in the bottom of the 9th.

Mark Buehrle pitched another gem, shutting out the Padres in 7.2 innings by scattering 7 hits and recording 6 K's. His counterpart tonight was rookie Tim Stauffer, and he pitched well beyond his experience in holding the Sox to 1 run on 3 hits through 7 innings.

The White Sox scored their run in the top of the 1st. Scott Podsednik led off the game with a single, and he came home to score when Tadahito Iguchi followed him with a double, putting the Sox up 1-0. Except for an Iguchi single in the third, Stauffer would not allow another baserunner and retired 21 of the next 22 batters he would face before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the 7th. Buehrle, meanwhile, cruised along as well but had to get out of a little trouble in the second inning. The Padres started that inning with consecutive singles, but a double play and a strikeout kept them off the scoreboard. Buehrle would then retire 12 in a row before giving up a pair of singles in the 6th inning, neither of which would score.

The score would remain 1-0 in the top of the 8th inning. With Stauffer out of the game, the Sox led off the inning with a walk by Juan Uribe and a single by Joe Crede off Padre reliever Akinori Otsuka. With men on 1st and 3rd and nobody out, it looked like a golden opportunity for the Sox to give Buehrle some insurance. Instead, Otsuka struck out the next three hitters and the Sox failed to push an insurance run across. This would prove costly later in the game. Buehrle pitched into the 8th inning, and was relieved with two outs in the inning by Cliff Politte, who struck out the only hitter he saw, Phil Nevin, to end the 8th with the Sox clinging to a 1-0 lead. In the Sox half of the 9th, some minor controversy ensued. Paul Konerko hit a one-out single and tried to score from first on a two-out double by AJ Pierzynski. Konerko, not known for his speed, was thrown out at home for the third out of the inning. The relay throw by Padre SS Khalil Greene beat Konerko by about 10 feet, but it was off line and Konerko appeared to slide in under a high tag. The umpire disagreed, however, and the inning was over.

Then came the bottom of the 9th, and it was Dustin Hermanson time. Hermanson came into the night a perfect 15 for 15 in save opportunities; he wouldn't leave that way. After getting Ryan Klesko to pop out for the first out of the inning, he hung a pitch to Ramon Hernandez, and Hernandez didn't miss it. Hernandez homered to left to tie the game at 1. The Padres then got back to back singles off Hermanson to put runners on the corners with still only 1 out. After an intentional walk loaded the bases, Damian Jackson singled home the game winning run off Hermanson to give the Padres the 2-1 decision.

No time to dwell on this one as the Sox play tomorrow afternoon in the rubber game of this three game series. Freddy Garcia (6-3, 3.51) will try to continue his dominant ways and go after the series victory for the Sox against Brian Lawrence (3-6, 4.78). Gametime is 3:05 pm CDT and will be televised on Comcast Sports Net.

Ozzieball Update:
With men on 1st and 3rd with nobody out in the 8th, Sox unable to push a run across. Konerko getting thrown out at home in the 9th didn't help matters either.
