WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps


September 21 v. Cleveland

Sox Magic Number:
"No movement here today."

Short Take:Sox offense lays an egg in 8-0 defeat; AL Central lead back down to 2.5 games.

Due to technical difficulties (THANKS COMCAST!!), the vast majority of the Chicagoland area was unable to bear witness to this contest on television. Unfortunately, those who went out to the ballpark had no choice but to watch the fiasco as Scott Elarton shut down the Sox offense in an 8-0 Tribe victory.

Jon Garland was on the mound in search of his 18th victory on the season. That wasn't meant to be as Garland surrendered 5 runs in 7.1 innings of work. Garland kept the Sox in the game by holding Cleveland to two runs in 7 innings. The Indians got on the board in the third inning on a solo home run by Casey Blake. They added another run in the 6th when Grady Sizemore doubled and eventually scored on a wild pitch to go up 2-0.

The Sox offense, using the term loosely, was pathetic. Elarton held Sox bats to 5 singles in 7.1 innings of work. The Sox led off with consecutive singles in the second by Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski, but they failed to advance a runner beyond second base. Ditto for the 8th inning, when the Sox got singles from Aaron Rowand and Joe Crede, but again failed to advance a runner past second base as ex-Sox reliever Bobby Howry came in to relieve Elarton. Howry retired the final 5 Sox batters to complete the shutout.

The Indians rubbed salt in the Sox wounds by tacking on 6 runs in the final two innings. Dowm 2-0, Garland gave up a 3-run homer to Travis Hafner in the 8th, putting Cleveland up 5-0. Hafner wasn't done, either. He would hit another home run in the 9th off Jeff Bajaneru, a two-run shot to cap off the scoring. Prior to Hafner's home run in the 9th, Grady Sizemore hit a solo homer off of Bajaneru to put the Indians up 6-0.

Things don't get any easier tomorrow night, as the Twins come to town. Sox nemesis Johan Santana (14-7, 3.05) takes the hill against rookie Brandon McCarthy (2-1, 4.72). Gametime is 7:05 pm CDT from US Cellular Field, and will allegedly be telecast on Comcast SportsNet, though I wouldn't hold my breath.
