Sox Stumble against A's...again

July 8 v. Oakland


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"3-hit game for Timo, Podsednik swipes two more bases. RBI's for Everett and Uribe."

Short Take:Shortest outing of year for Garland results in a loss.

All-Star Sox starter Jon Garland threw 112 pitches over 5 innings of work in a losing effort tonight as Oakland defeated the Sox 4-2. The game was a rematch of last week's contest with Garland going up against Kirk Saarloos. Saarloos came out on top this time, holding the Sox offense to two runs over 6 innings.

Oakland got on the board first in this one. In the top of the 3rd, the A's managed 4 hits off of Garland including 3 consecutive hits, to take a 2-0 lead. Jason Kendall singled home the first run, and Bobby Crosby doubled home another for the 2-0 advantage. The Sox got a run back in the bottom of the 4th. Jermaine Dye was hit by a pitch to start the inning, and advanced to second on a single by Timo Perez, one of three hits on the night for Perez. With runners at the corners and one out, Juan Uribe grounded out to first, but Dye was able to score on the play to make the score 2-1 Oakland.

The A's got that run back in the next half inning, on an RBI double by Crosby that put them ahead 3-1. Garland finished the inning, but that would end his night. Along with the 3 earned runs, he gave up 8 hits and allowed one walk to go with 2 strikeouts.

The Sox led off the 7th inning with a single by Uribe to knock Saarloos out of the game. Carl Everett scored Uribe from second on a single down the 1st base line off of All-Star Justin Duchscherer. That cut the margin to 3-2. Unfortunately, the Sox would not score again the rest of the night. Oakland would add an insurance run in the 8th on a ground rule RBI double by Nick Swisher off of Cliff Politte. The run would be charged to Neal Cotts, who gave up a leadoff single to Scott Hatteberg to start the inning off. Cotts was starting his second inning of work after having already pitched a scoreless inning of relief.

The Sox went down in order in the 8th, and reliever Kevin Walker pitched a perfect 9th inning, including strikeouts of Crosby and Eric Chavez, to keep the score 4-2 going into the bottom of the 9th. Uribe singled with one out in the inning, setting up a chance to tie the game with one swing of the bat. With two outs, Frank Thomas was sent in to pinch-hit for Willie Harris, and he represented the potential tying run. There would be no heroics tonight, however, as Thomas struck out to end the game.

The Sox will have to shake this one off and try again tomorrow, when they send another All-Star to the bump. Mark Buehrle (10-2, 2.58) goes up against Barry Zito (5-8, 4.07) in a 6:05 pm start at US Cellular Field.

Ozzieball Update:
Podsednik was agressive on the bases as usual, but Sox hitters failed to bring him home. Perez tried to generate a spark but was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double in the 6th.
