Not Enough!

May 18th at Tampa Devil Rays


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

Short Take: The Sox squander a couple of golden opportunities to get a nice lead and come up short by the slimest of margins at Tropicana Field.

Tonight's get-away rubber match against the Tampa Devil Rays was one that we can all look back on and ponder the "could'ves." All and all, the Sox did not get it done as Javier Vazquez twice relinquished leads, and the Sox could not recover at the end, losing to Tampa 5-4 in their final game before the Crosstown Classic begins.

Both teams dented the scorecard in the first inning. In the top of the frame, Pablo Ozuna walked to lead off the game, was sacrificed over to second by Tadahito Iguchi, and scored on a double to deep center. Jim Thome, who hit a soft single right before Konerko, added another run on a sac fly by Jermaine Dye. The Sox led 2-0 after the top of the frame.

During Tampa's first two at-bats, they got both runs back. In the bottom of the first inning, Julio Lugo singled, stole second, and scored on a hit by Ty Wiggington. The next inning, Russel Branyan homered to tie the score at 2 runs a side.

In the fourth inning, with the bases loaded, Brian Anderson missed a golden opportunity to punch a hole in the game; however, the Sox would score in the next inning on a home run to right-center field by Iguchi, giving the Sox a 3-2 lead until after the 7th inning stretch.

Toby Hall led off the seventh inning with a single, was forced out on a fielder's choice hit by Branyan, who later would score on a two-run shot by Damon Hollins. Lugo would single once again, steal second, and come home on a tripple by Carl Crawford. The D-Rays took a 5-3 lead into the 8th inning.

Dye tried to get the Sox going, as he homered to deep left to start off the eighth; but, that would prove to be the closest our beloved Palehose would get for the rest of the game.

Fear not, Sox fans. The DEFENDING WORLD CHAMPION CHICAGO WHITE SOX now will come home to play the minor league team from 8 miles north. The gametime is set at 3:05 and sees a very great pitching matchup, as Mark Buehrle looks for his fifth win of the season against Greg Maddux. Be there, or be square! It is time for the White Sox Army to get louder than ever! If you can't make it to the ballpark, tune in to Hawk and DJ's telecast on Comcast Sports Net.

Jermaine Dye

Homered to bring the Sox to within a one run margin; but, he can't be expected to do it all on his own.
