Thumped in Texas

August 31 at Texas

"Two hits and a run scored for Uribe; Konerko delivered an RBI double to give the Sox a brief lead before the implosion."

Short Take:Sox lose three of four in Texas to cap off 5-5 road trip.

Mercifully, August officially comes to an end at midnight tonight. The Sox will welcome September on the heels of a 12-16 month, by far their worst stretch of this otherwise glorious season.

Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez looked good for 5 innings today as the Sox held a tenuous 2-1 lead going into the 6th inning. Unfortunately, the wheels came off in the 6th as the first 5 Rangers to the plate scored to break the game wide open and Texas would go on to defeat our Sox by a score of 9-2.

David Dellucci led off the bottom of the first with a home run off of Hernandez to put Texas on top 1-0. The next batter, Michael Young, would double. Hernandez would then retire 12 in a row before a harmless Kevin Mench single to lead off the Ranger 5th. The Sox tied the score in the third with an RBI groundout by Pablo Ozuna to drive in Juan Uribe with the Sox first run of the contest.

Paul Konerko drove in A.J. Pierzynski with an RBI double in the top of the 6th to give the Sox a 2-1 lead off Ranger rookie Kameron Loe. Loe held the Sox bats to 4 hits in 6 innings. In the bottom of the 6th, Dellucci was hit by a pitch to start the inning, and scored on a home run by Michael Young to put the Rangers back ahead 3-2. Mark Teixeira walked and eventually scored on a single by Hank Blalock, and Blalock scored on a two-run homer by Alfonso Soriano. All of a sudden, Texas was up 6-2 and Hernandez was out of the game. Cliff Politte came on in relief and retired the next 3 batters in a row, but the damage had been done.

Luis Vizcaino gave up three runs in the 8th inning, on a two-run homer by Adrian Gonzalez and a solo shot by Rod Barajas to put the Rangers ahead by the final score of 9-2. The Sox did manage back-to-back two out singles in the 7th inning, but never threatened again as the Ranger bullpen retired the last 7 Sox hitters of the game.

The Sox come home to start a new month and a 10-game homestand tomorrow night against Detroit. Jose Contreras (9-7, 4.07) will look to get the Sox back in the win column against Sean Douglass (5-2, 5.58). The Sox remain 7 games ahead of second place Cleveland.
