Angels' Pitching Creates Slumber for Sox's Bats

April 28 vs. L.A. Angels

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Bologna
Zero runs on eight hits, all of which were singles. 'Nuff said.

Short Take:   The Sox looked lost at the plate as the Angels evened up the series at a game a piece.

This beautiful spring evening had all the makings for a great game- beautiful weather, clear skies, the first postgame fireworks of the season, and Jon Garland on the mound. The only thing beautiful about tonight's game were the fireworks, as Jared Weaver put the Sox's offense in a coma. Our team came out on the short end of a 3-0 final.

The Sox found themselves in a hole early on as Jon Garland's fifth pitch of the ballgame was sent sailing over the Bullpen Sports Bar and into the crowd by Gary Matthews, Jr., putting the Angels up 1-0 before the fans had settled in to their seats. Despite the leadoff homerun, Garland escaped the rest of the first inning unscathed, but he was not as lucky in the second.

After a leadoff double to Casey Kotchman, Garland retired Hillenbrand on a groundout to Crede, but Erick Aybar drove in Kotchman with a basehit, making the score 2-0 Angels. Matters seemed to be getting worse when Garland then walked Mike Napoli and gave up a hit to Reggie Willits, but Garland cinched it up and retired Matthews, Jr. on a popout to Iguchi.

The home half of the fourth started off promising when Paul Konerko led off with a single. "Mr. Dropped Third Strike," A.J. Pierzynski popped out to second, but Dye picked him up with a basehit of his own, advancing Konerko to second. Rob Mackowiak followed that up with a strikeout, but Joe Crede delivered in the clutch once again and all of a sudden the sacks were packed with Sox. The only significant offensive threat of the night came to a screeching hault though, when Alex Cintron struck out to end the threat and the inning.

If there was a bright spot in this whole game, it's that Garland was solid from the third inning onward, only surrendering one measley hit after the second. Unfortunately though, his offense didn't come through for him and he fell victim to a lack of run support.

Boone Logan came on to work the eighth and also recorded the first out of the ninth, striking out Gary Matthews, Jr. in the process. Nick Masset relieved Logan in the ninth, surrendering a lone hit to Kotchman, who was left stranded at first.

Francisco Rodriguez came on to work the ninth for the Angels and "K-Rod" struck out the side, in between allowing Joe Crede to reach base via the walk.

Our Sox now find themselves 12-10 on the year and will go for the series win tomorrow at U.S. Cellular Field. The Sox are sending Mark "No-No" Buehrle and his 2-0 record to the mound and he will oppose 1-1 Kelvim Escobar. The first pitch is set for 1:05p and the game will be televised on CSN.

Back to the Grind Update:
 Eight hits and not a single one of them went for extra bases... nothing to see here.

Joe Crede

Had two of the team's eight hits, including his single in the fourth to keep what Sox fans thought would be a big inning alive.
