Here's Your Letdown

August 15 vs. Kansas City Royals


How was the trophy defended today?
Losing to the Royals...enough said.

Short Take:  Sox get shut down by Runelvys Hernanadez en route to a 4-2 loss.

Much was made about a huge letdown after the Sox taking the Yankees series and sweeping the first place Tigers making up 4.5 games in just a week. After last night's beating of the Kansas City Royals it didn't seem like the Sox were going to disappoint tonight. With Javier Vazquez's 2-0 record and 1.59ERA against the Royals in '06, and Runelvys Hernandez's 0-2 and 16.43ERA against the Sox in '06, this game seemed to be a lock, but as Hawk says "That's why you play 'em."

The Royals took a quick 1-0 lead in the second inning on a Emil Brown solo home run. They added another run when Angel Berroa hit a deep fly ball to right field that Jermaine Dye was about to make the catch on, but instead dropped the ball allowing Ryan Shealy to score giving the Royals a 2-0 lead.

The Sox did fight back though. Juan Uribe hit an infield single to start the fifth inning rally. Brian Anderson then hit a shot down the left field line that some jagbag leaned over and grabbed to force a ground rule double putting runners on second and third for Scott Podsednik. Scott lined a sac fly ball to centerfield scoring Uribe cutting the lead in half. The Sox tied the game on a single up the middle by Tadahito Iguchi scoring Anderson.

Like the story goes for Vazquez this season, the wheels fell off in the sixth inning. Javy played "how far can it fly" and gave the two runs right back to the Royals when he served up a two run home run to Mark Teahen. After back to back singles off the bats of Emil Brown and Reggie Sanders, Vazquez was removed only serving 5 1/3 innings of work. David Riske came on and was able to get two quick outs and keeping the Royals lead at 4-2.

The Sox were done for the rest of the night handing the win to the Royals and the win streak ends at five while the Sox record falls to 71-47 and now 6.5 games out of first place. Tomorrow, the same two teams go at it with Jose Contreras (11-4 3.53ERA) on the mound for the Sox and Odalis Perez (4-4 6.54ERA)for the Royals. Gametime is at 7:05pm and the game will be televised on Comcast SportsNet.
