A Shot In The Foot

September 26 at Detriot


Sox Magic Number:
5
"A golden opportunity to bring this thing down, but it was left on the basepads."

Short Take:  A walk off home run for some guy named Curtis Granderson puts the Sox in the loss column.

What a way to start the final roadtrip of the 2005 season uh? In a game that saw the Sox come out and score quickly on a two run home run by Paul Konerko in the first inning, and a good pitching performace by Jon Garland was all washed down the drain as the Sox played a game they should not have lost...but did.

With a win tonight, the Sox could've gone three games up on the Cleveland Indians and brought their magic number down to four. Forget all that. The lead in the A.L. Central is down to two and the magic number stays at five. Brandon Inge tied the game up 2-2 with his own two run blast in the fourth inning showing that the Tigers will not lay down for our Sox.

Joe Crede put the Sox back up 3-2 with a solo home run in the Sox half of the fifth. It was his 22nd home run of the season, the highest season total in his young career. But, Brandon Inge refused to give in. Inge came up to bat in the sixth, with two outs Garland made another bad pitch to the third basemen to tie the game back up 3-3.

The Sox had a major chance to put this game away in the eighth inning. Juan Uribe walked to lead things off and Scott Podsednik bunted him over and beat the throw to first base to put two runners on with no outs. Tadahito Iguchi did his part and moved the runners 90ft. with a sac bunt. But, with lefty Jamie Walker coming out of the Tigers pen, A.J. Pierzynski was kept in the batting order and struck out. Paul Konerko came up next and was intentionally walked to load the bases for Jermaine Dye. Dye looked like he was swinging for the fenses and struck out to end the threat and eventually the game.

The game stayed tied 3-3 until the bottom of the ninth. Curtis Granderson took the second pitch from Cliff Politte and launched it over the left field fense for the Tigers 4-3 win.

Ugh. Ugly isn't Sox fans. The Sox are going to have to sleep this one off and get 'em tomorrow. Brandon McCarthy will make the start for the Sox against Nate Robertson for the Tigers. Game time is 6:05 and the game can be seen on Comcast Sports Net.

Ozzieball Update:
 Crazy Carl is still swinging and missing, MANY chances to win this one.
