Contreras Beatdown

June 13 vs. Diamondbacks

"10 if it counted for grinding a loss."

Short Take:  Sox come home from a 5-1 roadtrip but home wasn't so sweet. Shawn Estes goes the distance as the Sox make him look like Cy Young in a 8-1 loss.

Shawn Estes shut the Sox down and Jose Contreras was beat up for first two innings by the Arizona Diamondbacks who scored six runs in the second inning en route to a 8-1 beating of the White Sox. The Sox offense was non-existant except for a forth inning home run by Frank Thomas.

The game started off shakey for Contreras. Contreras loaded the bases with one out and Tony Clark hit a sac fly to deep center field to score Chad Tracy to make it 1-0 Diamondbacks. Contreras would leave the runners on second and third and got out of the first with minimal damage. But, the second inning would not fare well for Jose. The Diamondbacks pounded him for six runs. Chris Snyder hit a solo home run with a out, then with two men on, Chad Tracy hit a RBI-single to make it 3-0. Luis Gonzalez came up next and hit a 3-run home run that made it 6-0. The next batter Troy Glaus got in on the action and hit a solo home run to make it 7-0 Diamondbacks. Yikes!

The good news was that it was only the second inning and that Contreras would settle down a bit for the next two innings. The problem, the Sox couldn't get anything going against Diamondbacks starter Estes. Thomas would connect for his third home run of the season but that was pretty much it. Shawn Green added another run for the Diamondbacks in their half of the fifth with a solo shot that made it 8-1.

Luckily thats how it stayed. There were no comebacks tonight and the 32,952 in attendance would go home let down by their first place White Sox.

Contreras falls to 3-3 throwing six innings, nine hits, and eight earned runs. Luis Vizcaino and Shingo Takatsu worked from the pen and held the game intact, but it didn't matter.

To add to the downer of a game, Frank Thomas left the game with a cramp in his left leg. Hopefully he'll be ok and will return this week. The Sox record falls to 42-21... ain't nothing wrong with that! Don't worry the sun will rise tomorrow. Orlando Hernandez will try and right the ship tomorrow against Javier Vazquez. Game time is 7:05pm and if you can't make it to the game, it will be televised on Comcast Sports Net.

 Hard to play small ball when nobody is on base.

Frank Thomas

2-3, 3rd home run of the season. Also the only one that could hit Cy and have it at least mean something.
