WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Dying in Comerica

July 20 at Detroit Tigers

How was the trophy defended today?
It wasn't

Short Take: Tigers take the rubber game as the Good Guys head back home to regroup.

In the third and deciding game of this series, despite the best efforts of Brian Anderson and Jose Contreras, the Sox lose 2-1 and drop to 5.5 games back.

Well, there’s really not much to say about this one. You have to give credit to Jose Contreras and Tigers starter Kenny Rogers. It was a classic pitchers’ duel. Thing is, pitchers’ duels are only fun if your team wins them. This one began as a scoreless tie through the first three innings. The Sox got something going in the top of the fourth when, after getting Tadahito Iguchi to ground out, Rogers walked Jim Thome and Paulie Konerko. A base hit by Jermaine Dye loaded the bases, and a single by Joe Crede scored Big Jim. Unfortunately, with the bases still loaded, Juan Uribe hit an infield pop-up, and Chris Widger flied out to left. Sox led 1-0.

The score stayed at 1-0 until the bottom of the sixth. Curtis Granderson--who, as a former Illinois resident, ought to be ashamed of himself--doubled, and came around to tie the game on a single by Ivan Rodriguez, who should just knock it off with the ham acting he does every time he knows the camera is on him. That routine’s getting old, Ivan. Anyway, in the bottom of the seventh, Marcus Thames walked and a double by Chris Shelton scored what was to be the deciding run.

All downhill from there. Joel Zumaya in relief of Rogers shut down the Sox offense, and the game ended with the Kitties victorious. However, two bright spots were the outstanding pitching by Jose and the continued offensive improvement of Brian Anderson, who went 3 for 4. Oh, well. Can’t win ‘em all. Let’s put this one behind us and get back on track this weekend. Next game: Friday vs. Texas, 7:35 Central.

Ozzieball Update: The offense was pretty much missing in action today.
