Sox Take a Holiday

Sept. 4th at Boston Red Sox


How was the trophy defended today?
It wasn't.

Short Take: Apparently someone forgot to tell most of the team they had to work on Labor Day.

Anyone who watched the game and then checked the box score probably was surprised to see that the Sox actually had eight hits. Unfortunately, the rest of their time mostly was divided between striking out and grounding out. Of their eight hits, six were singles, two of which were wiped out by double plays. If you get the impression that this game was frustrating to watch, youíre right. The only real bright spot came when the Sox took the lead in the seventh, but they would go on to lose in ten innings, despite a solid pitching effort by Jon Garland. Final score, Wrong Sox 3, Good Guys 2.

Anyway---In the first inning, Boston pitcher Julian Tavarez kicked things off by recording the first three of what would be Bostonís eight strikeouts. Scott Podsednik led off with a strikeout, Tadahito Iguchi singled, then Jermaine Dye and Jim Thome both struck out. Boston threatened in the bottom of the frame, but Jon pitched his way out of it. In the second, Paul Konerko started off with a single, which was immediately erased when A.J. Pierzynski grounded into a double play. Joe Crede grounded out to end the inning. Sox went down in order in the third and fourth, and in the fifth, a two-out hit by Crede was wasted when Brian Anderson struck out. Scoreless after five.

Sixth inning. After Juan Uribe grounded out to the shortstop, Pods reached on a bunt single, which was immediately erased when Gooch grounded into a double play. Boston put up the first run in the bottom of the sixth, but then, in the top of the seventh, the sun came out briefly. After JD grounded out, Big Jim homered to tie the game. Then Paulie doubled to left. Boston got a new pitcher and A.J. grounded to first, moving Paulie to third. A single by Joe scored Paulie, and the Sox led 2-1. It stayed that way until the bottom of the ninth. Boston threatened a couple of times, but solid relief work by Mike MacDougal and Matt Thornton kept things in check. It looked like Labor Day would end happily after all, especially with the usually reliable Bobby Jenks coming in to close. But Boston refused to go quietly and tied the score in the ninth. The Sox went down in order in the tenth, Brandon McCarthy came on in relief of Bobby, and he gave up a home run pitch to the first batter he faced. Game over.

And the sun went back down again. Still, as the kid with the dog always says, itíll come up tomorrow. Theyíre still our team and we still love them, so all we can do is, as Hawk would say, cinch it up and hunker down. Tomorrow, Javier Vazquez tees it up against Kason Gabbard, a rookie pitcher with a 6.35 ERA (sigh). Game time: 6:05 Central.
