11th Inning Meltdown

April 24th at Seattle Mariners

How was the trophy defended today?
It wasn't quite defended tonight.

Short Take:Jon Garland pitches decent; but, Brandon McCarthy has a mini-meltdown en route to a 4-3 Seattle victory over our Palehose in 11 innings.

As a teacher, I assign grades every day. If I were to have Sox pitcher Jon Garland in my class, I would have assigned him a B- as his grade for his pitching performance tonight, simply because he wasn't lights-out against the offense of a pretty weak AL West foe. Garland allowed 3 runs off of 8 hits during his time on the mound, while Brandon McCarthy recorded the loss with a sad state of events in the bottom of the 11th inning, as the Sox went on to lose the first game of a 3-game series in Seattle 4-3.

Both teams recorded a run in the first inning. After Pablo Ozuna led off the inning with a double, Jim Thome singled him in. Seattle answered with a home run by Jose Lopez in the bottom half. The Sox and Mariners were tied at one run a side after the inning.

Our DEFENDING WORLD SERIES CHAMPION Palehose didn't wait very long before they re-gained the lead, as Rob Makowiak reached on a fielding error by Seattle third baseman Adrian Beltre, advanced to second on a wild pitch, skidaddled to third on a groundout by Brian Anderson, and scored on another wild pitch. Makowiak was all over the place during this inning. The White Sox held a 2-1 lead after all was said and done in the inning.

The lead held for a while, until the bottom of the seventh inning, as Ichiro Suzuki singled in Yuniesky Betancourt to tie the score. In the next inning, Seattle took their first lead of the game, as Raul Ibanez hit a dinger to deep right. The Mariners held their 3-2 lead until the 9th inning, when Anderson hit a round-tripper on a 1-2 count with 2 out, knotting the score at 3 runs a side, forcing extra innings.

The game ended on the first scoring play of extra innings. With McCarthy pitching, Carl Everett singled and was immediately relieved by Willie Bloomquist, who stole second. After Beltre flied out and Jeremy Reed was intentionally walked, Betancourt singled between Joe Crede and Juan Uribe, knocking Bloomquist in in the process with the winning run for the Mariners.

And so, our beloved Palehose's eight-game winning streak has been haulted once again. They have an opportunity to start a new winning streak tomorrow night, as Javier Vazquez takes the mound for our Sox at Safeco Field in Seattle. The gametime is at 9:05 Chicago time and can be seen on Comcast Sports Net + (CLTV) or can be listened to on WSCR (AM 670).

Ozzieball Update:
Rob Makowiak had his head in the game during the second inning, as he took advantage of two wild pitches to score a run for our beloved Sox.
