Blown chances, game

July 22 vs. Texas Rangers


How was the trophy defended today?
Garcia pitches fine, hitting doesn't do much.

Short Take:  Freddy Garcia pitches a nice game but hitting still isn't able to come through.

If the starting pitching isn't digging early holes for the Sox, its the bats that arn't coming through for the pitching. That was the story tonight at The Cell against the Texas Rangers where the Sox found themselves in a odd situation knowing the Tigers...gasp...actually lost a game meaning our Sox would be able to pick up a game in the standings, that is if they won. Well, they didn't. A 3-1 loss keeps the Sox 6.5 out of first place and only one game up in the Wild Card.

They had a golden opportunity to put up a few runs in the first when Rangers starting pitcher John Koronka walked the bases loaded. But, A.J. Pierzynski grounded out to end the threat. The Rangers would score a run off Freddy in the fifth. After a lead off walk to Mark DeRosa, Kevin Mintch hit a RBI double on the first pitch from Garcia to make it a 1-0 Rangers lead. That would be the lone run the Rangers would be able to get off Freddy Garcia tonight. Freddy pitched seven strong innings tonight only giving up four hits!

The Sox got that run back via a solo home run by Paul Konerko to tie the game at one in the sixth inning. They had another chance to take the lead in the seventh inning. Juan Uribe led off the inning with a double. He advanced to third on a swinging bunt ground out off the bat of Brian Anderson, but, Scott Podsednik and Tadahito Iguchi were not able to knock Uribe in from third base. Again, in the eighth inning with the game still tied, the Sox had runners on first and second but failed to score when Joe Crede popped up to second base to end the inning.

All the blown chances must have gave the Rangers the spark they needed becuase in the ninth they scored two runs to take a 3-1 lead. Kevin ****ing Mintch beat out the throw from Juan Uribe a normal ground ball to short. That set up a sac bunt advancing his pinch runner Jerry Hairston Jr.. After Rob Barajas grounded out, Jenks walked Gary Matthews Jr. intentionally, and walked Ian Kensler unintentionally. Michael Young came up and ripped a RBI single to right field scoring the two runs.

Of course though the Sox threatend in the ninth, two men reached base but Rob Mackowiak was not able to bring them home with two outs. He grounded out to second on the first pitch.

The only good points to the game was Garcia's outing and the fact that the Sox didn't lose any ground in the central standings. Otherwise, it was a pretty awful game coupling with the awful play of late. Tomorrow the Sox will try and win their second game of the second half when Jon Garland and Vicente Padilla go at it tomorrow afternoon at 1pm. The game can be seen on Comcast SportsNet. Let's get a win uh boys...
