Third Inning Meltdown

May 30th at Cleveland Indians

How was the trophy defended today?
It wasn't

Short Take: The Sox score three early runs; but, Mark Buehrle has one bad inning, giving Cleveland all the runs they would need to win a close 4-3 contest.

Out of all of the CC Sabathia vs. Mark Buehrle duels, the later had yet to record a victory. That would continue tonight, as the Sox' bats unfortunately were unable to give Buehrle the same run support they gave Javier Vazquez last night. One inning spelled disaster for Buehrle and the Sox, as they dropped a close, one-run affair 4-3 to the Cleveland Indians at Jacobs Field.

The Sox would get on the board early on in this game. In the second inning, Jermaine Dye hit a one-out home run onto the concession porch down the left field line. The next frame, Juan Uribe and Brian Anderson got back-to-back hits. Uribe reached on an infield trickler down the first base line, while Anderson was given virtually a "free pass" by way of a Sabathia throwing error, allowing Pablo "call me clutch" Ozuna to bat both of them in. Going into the bottom of the third inning, our DEFENDING WORLD SERIES CHAMPION CHICAGO WHITE SOX had built a 3-0 lead for Buehrle.

Unfortunately, Buehrle would immediately give all of those runs back...and then one! Aaron Boone reached third base to lead off the inning on a terrible fielding error by Dye. Dye mis-read the trajectory of the ball, allowing it to go all the way to the wall instead of stopping it. After Grady Seizemore was hit by a pitch, Jason Michaels got Boone in with a sac fly, cutting the Sox lead to two. The next batter was Jhonny "I can't spell my own first name" Peralta, who got the Indians even with our Sox on one swing, homering for only the fourth time of the season. Just when you'd think Cleveland was done scoring, Travis Hafner followed with a double, scoring on a double by Victor Martinez. Cleveland nearly batted around in the inning, scoring four runs with all of their efforts, and never relinquished their lead.

Neither team would score for the other 2/3 of the game. Hopefully Freddy Garcia has better fortunes tomorrow against Jake Westbrook. Gametime is 6:05 Chicago time and can be seen on Comcast Sports Net Chicago. If you are unable to watch on television, and are within earshot of a radio, tune in to WSCR to hear the call on the AM dial.

Ozzieball Update:
Alex Cintron stole second base during the nineth inning of play; however, it went all for naught, as Rob Makowiak and Tadahito Iguchi weren't able to get him home.
