Swept

July 26th vs. Minnesota Twins


How was the trophy defended today?
It wasn't

Short Take: Mark Buehrle continued his pitching woes, as our beloved Sox were swept by the Minnesota Twins at home, dropping them to 2-10 since the All Star break.

For the past month, Mark Buehrle hasn't seemed like his usual self. He hasn't given up less than five runs in his last five outings, including this afternoon's series finale at home with the Minnesota Twins, as our Palehose lost 7-4, completing another unfortunate sweep in the process.

Buehrle started off shakey in the first inning, as he allowed a two-run jack by Michael Cuddyer with Nick Punto already on board. In the third frame, Justin Morneau batted in Luis Castillo (who had led off the inning with a triple) on an 0-2 pitch, giving the Twinkies a 3-0 lead.

The Sox have not been coming back in games very much lately; however, today's game was different, as they tied the game in the bottom of the fourth. After Paul Konerko walked, Jermaine Dye homered to deep left centerfield. AJ Pierzynski followed with a double, coming home on a single by Joe Crede up the middle on a pitch at his knees. After four innings of play, the score was tied at three.

The bright spot of the game would quickly fade in the next inning, as Buehrle gave up a two-run homer to Morneau after Mike Redmond doubled down the left field line. Two more runs would be added in the sixth, as Punto singled both Josh Rabe and Jason Bartlett in, giving the Twins a 7-3 lead after 6 innings of play--all runs charged to Buehrle.

Rob Makowiak followed the Seventh Inning Stretch with a lead-off home run, which would close the scoring for the game.

In the past week, our Sox have not only dropped five games in the divisional standings; but, they have completely given up any lead they had in the wild card standings (and could trail in the race if the Rangers don't beat the Yankees tonight). It's become hard to watch; but, as fans, let's continue to support our DEFENDING WORLD SERIES CHAMPS and hope for a bold move by Kenny Williams before the trade deadline. Fortunately, the Baltimore Orioles will be our next opponent, as they were the last team who our Sox beat in a series. The first game of the series will come Friday night, as Freddy Garcia faces Eric Bedard. Gametime is at 6:05 Chicago time and can be seen on Comcast Sports Net Chicago.

Ozzieball Update:
When was the last time Ozzieball was actually present in its full form? Our Sox need to get back to playing the fundamental baseball that won them the World Series last year.

Jermaine Dye

Two-run jack in the fourth provided half the Sox' offense. Lately, it has seemed as if JD's been among the only ones pulling his own weight.
