More trouble with Texas

June 4th against Texas


How was the trophy defended today?
Ummm....it wasn't.

Short Take:Sox take beating at the hands of the Rangers, drop rubber game of series.

Texas humiliated the defending World Champions this afternoon, beating up on the Sox to the tune of a 10-2 drubbing.

Mark Buehrle picked up the loss, as he was torched for 6 earned runs in 7 innings of work. The Rangers countered with rookie southpaw John Rheinecher, who kept the Sox bats at bay all afternoon.

The Sox managed to get on the board first. Joe Crede hit a two-run homer in the home half of the second to give the Sox a short-lived 2-0 advantage. The Rangers got both runs back in the next half inning, thanks to a two-out two-run double by Mark Teixeira. Teixiera's fly ball got past a diving Pablo Ozuna in left centerfield, allowing both runs to score. The score remained tied going into the 5th inning, when Teixeira delivered another double, this time scoring Gary Matthews Jr. from second to put the Rangers up for good.

Texas blew the game open in the 6th. With two outs and the score still 3-2, Ranger catcher Gerald Laird hit a two-run double to make the score 5-2 Texas. Laird would then score on a single by Matthews Jr., making the score 6-2 Texas. During this time, the Sox offense failed to mount any semblence of a threat against the rookie. Rheinecker would scatter 7 hits over 8 innings of work to go along with 4 K's and no BB.

Buehrle would be relieved by Cliff Politte to start the 8th. Politte himself would not survive the 8th inning, as he continued his lackluster ways on the mound this afternoon. The Rangers tacked on 3 runs with 4 hits off Politte in 0.2 of an inning, including a solo home run by Laird. Laird had a career day, going 4-5 with two homers, two doubles and 4 RBI. With the score 9-2 Texas in the top of the 9th, Laird tacked on his second home run in as many innings to put the Rangers up by the final of 10-2. Ranger reliever Francisco Cordero, who has struggled and lost his closer job this year, shut down the Sox meekly in order in the 9th to end the game.

The White Sox have tomorrow off, thankfully, to lick their wounds and regroup. It would be a good idea to do so quickly, as the division-leading Detroit Tigers come to town for three games starting Tuesday June 6th, followed by three games with Cleveland. Freddy Garcia (7-3, 4.57) takes the bump Tuesday night for the Sox against Nate Robertson (5-3, 3.42). Gametime is 7:05 pm CDT, and will be televised on CSN Chicago.

Ozzieball Update:
Ozzieball? I'm not sure that could even be considered baseball.
