A Nap For Sox Bats

May 23 vs. Oakland A's

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Ground Lamb
Hitting takes the night off.

Short Take:   A lame five hit effort puts the Sox back in the loss column.

After scoring 34 runs in the past four games, the White Sox bats look baffled by A's starter Chad Gaudin as he twirled a gem while Jon Garland sweated out his 6 1/3 innings of work in tonight's 4-0 loss.

Jon Garland was lucky to escape the first two innings with the score 1-0 in the A's favor, he allowed five hits in those innings and allowed seven base runners in the first four. His luck would end in the fifth inning when Dan Johnson hit a two out RBI single to make it a 2-0 A's lead.

While Gaudin faced the minimum through six innings, the A'S made Garland work for every out he recorded. Jon started the seventh inning but wouldn't make it out unharmed. Garland served up Hiram Bocachica's first hit of the 2007 season as a two run home run to give the A's a 4-0 lead.

The only time the Sox even had a chance to score tonight was in the eighth inning. In fact, they were a few inches away from making it a 4-3 A's lead. With two on, and one out, Rob Mackowiak hit a ball off the top of the right field wall that Nick Swisher couldn't make the catch on, but runners A.J. Pierzynski and Juan Uribe were waiting to see if the ball was going to be caught making Rob's launch just a long single to load the bases. That would end Gaudin's dominating night, Jay Marshall came on to get pinch hitter Pablo Ozuna and Darin Erstad to end the threat with two weak hit balls in the infield.

That would end the threat and the game for the Sox and they went down without a fight in the ninth. The loss puts the Sox record at 23-20. After tomorrow's off day the Sox will battle the Tampa Bay Devil Days on Friday. Mark Buerhle will get the start for the first of the three game Memorial Day weekend series. Game time on Friday is the usual slurpee start.
