Oh for some Offense!

July 23 v. Boston


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"With the offense taking the night off, El Duque is the only one who earns praise here."

Short Take:Outstanding effort by Hernandez wasted as Sox lose 3-0.

Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez was sharp in his second outing back from the DL, allowing only a two-run home run to Manny Ramirez in the first inning of the game. That would be more than enough for the Red Sox and Wade Miller tonight as the Red Sox took a 3-0 decision from the White Sox.

Hernandez pitched well enough to win the game, but the offense was never able to get going. The Sox got the leadoff man on base each of the first four innings, but each time failed to push any runs across. After Ramirez put the Red Sox up 2-0 in the first inning with a two-run homer, Scott Podsednik led off the bottom of the first with a single. He then proceeded to steal what appeared to be his 51st base of the season, beating the throw to second base by a healthy margin. But Podsednik overslid the bag and was called out by the second base umpire despite the protests of Podsednik and Manager Ozzie Guillen. Tadahito Iguchi was the next batter, and he drew a walk but was later picked off of first base.

The Sox best opportunity to get to Miller was in the bottom of the third inning. Joe Crede led off the inning with a single, and went to second on a sacrifice by Juan Uribe. Podsednik followed with a walk, and both runners advanced on a wild pitch. Iguchi then drew a walk to load the bases, still only one out in the inning. Carl Everett struck out, and Paul Konerko popped out to let Miller off the hook and keep the score at 2-0.

Hernandez, meanwhile, was on cruise control. After allowing the home run to Ramirez in the first, he retired 12 straight Boston hitters before giving up a single to Bill Mueller with two outs in the bottom of the 5th. The Red Sox got two runners on base in each of the 6th and 7th innings, but failed to score and the score remained 2-0 going into the 9th inning. Damaso Marte came on in relief in the top of the 9th, allowing a solo home run by Jason Varitek to put Boston up 3-0. With Curt Schilling on the mound in the bottom of the 9th, the Sox tried to get a rally going. Paul Konerko led off the inning with a single off the top of the wall in left that just missed being a home run. Catcher A.J. Pierzynski singled, and the Sox appeared to be in business off of Schilling. Unfortunately the next batter, Aaron Rowand, hit into a double play and Schilling then retired rightfielder Timo Perez for the last out of the game.

The Sox look to salvage a series split tomorrow afternoon. Jose Contreras (5-6, 4.34) will look to right the ship against Bronson Arroyo (8-5, 4.05). Gametime is 2:05 pm CDT and can be seen on WGN.
