Back to the Grind,

Only enjoyable if you like crappyness.

Short Take: A Sox lineup without Thome & Dye goes clueless in 6-2 loss.

There are few pitchers who have mastered their craft. Chad Durbin is one of those pitchers. On a cold, wet night at The Cell many Tigers' fans journeyed from far distances such as Lincoln Park and Wrigley Field to catch a glimpse of this already Hall of Fame pitcher and see him dominate our Sox in a cold 6-2 loss.

The Sox faithful rested on John Danks to take down the reigning A.L. Champs. But those hopes quickly turned to groans after Danks gave up three first inning runs.

Ivan Rodriguez led off with a double and then scored on a Placido Polanco single. Gary Sheffield brought his man-cream tonight and doubled putting runners on second and third for Magglio Ordonez. Maggs quickly singled bringing in both runners making it a 3-0 Tiger lead.

That was all "the great" needed tonight. Durbin then plowed through a weak Sox lineup that featured Brian Anderson at DH, and Pablo Ozuna batting seventh playing in left.

The Tigers added one more in the fifth for kicks on another Ordonez RBI to make it 4-0 Tigers. Then, in the ninth, the Tigers would add two more off Boone Logan who worked well in his first two innings of work, but the third must have stretched him out too much.

With Durbin out of the game in the ninth, the Sox breathed a sigh of relief when Joel Zumaya and his wild arm came in the game. After Paul Konerko grounded into a double play the game got a bit interesting. Zumaya hit A.J. Pierzynski and walked Joe Crede and Andy Gonzalez to load to the bases. Pablo Ozuna was walked to have A.J. score the first Sox run of the game. Juan Uribe took his monthly walk in stride making it a 6-2 Tiger lead with the tying run in Brian Anderson coming to the plate.

Jim Leyland had seen enough and called on Todd Jones to end their mess. He did, getting Anderson to ground out on a full count to end the game.

Chad Durbin threw away his 1-6 career record against the Sox and his 10.26 ERA and turned in a great outing that the Tiger fans in attendance will never forget. If only they had Durbin in last year's World Series...

Tomorrow, Jose Contreras will try and respect the mound Durbin stood on and try and get the Sox back in the win column. The Tigers will counter with Nate Robertson. Gametime is 7:11pm and can be seen on Comsast Sports Net.
