June 15th...Garrr, Matey! Sox Walk the Plank in Pittsburgh.

June 15...Sox at Pittsburgh Pirates

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Dead duck
Can this team EVER capitalize on the other team's mistakes?

Short Take: Wasn’t this month supposed to be the easy part of the schedule? Apparently someone forgot to tell that to our opponents.

You won’t win many games when you all you get is three singles and a double. The Pirate pitchers did their best to let us get back in the game by giving up five walks, a wild pitch, and three HBP (although the Pirates’ broadcast team would argue that point), but we were just determined to go down with the ship, I guess. Final score: Pirates 4, Sox 2.

Top of one. After Tadahito Iguchi struck out, Andy Gonzalez walked, then went to second on a wild pitch. Since this made it unlikely that Paul Konerko would hit into a double play, things were looking pretty good. It looked even better after Paulie walked. Jermaine Dye’s single sent Gonzalez to third and Paulie to second. A sac fly by AJ Pierzynski sent Gonzalez home. Then Luis Terrero got hit by a pitch (or else he didn’t), sending Paulie to third and Dye to second. So the bases were juiced with two outs. Of course, anyone who’s watched this team much lately knows that probably means that the next batter—Juan Uribe, in this case—will strike out. Which he did.

The bottom of the first looked a lot like far too many other “bottom of” innings have lately. With two out, the Pirates got two straight singles. The next guy doubled to right center, scoring both. THEN we got the third out. End of 1, Pirates 2, Sox headed to Davy Jones’s locker again.

And here comes the rest of the game. (I’ll make this as quick as I can, so as not to cause the fans additional pain.) Top 2: Josh Fields singled, Jon Garland sacrificed him to second, but Gooch grounded out and Gonzalez lined out. Bottom 2; the Pirates got another run, who cares how. Score after three—Bad guys 3, not-so-good guys 1. Pirates scored again in the fourth, making it 4-1. Then everybody took a nap until the top of the ninth, when the Pirates made one final effort to be good hosts. AJ led off with a double. Terrero got hit for the second (or was it the first?) time, Jim Thome pinch-hit for Uribe and struck out swinging. Fields struck out swinging. Rob Mackowiak walked, loading the bases for—Bobby Jenks? Nope, here comes Alex Cintron to pinch hit. He walked, forcing in AJ. However, Gonzalez popped out and that was the ol’ ball game.

Join us tomorrow as we see if this team can swim back up to the surface. Game time: 5:05. Mark Buehrle’s pitching, so at least we have hope.

Back to the Grind Update:
With two men on in the ninth, Thome and Fields struck out swinging. But at least they were trying to hit the damn ball, which is as close to grinding as we've seen in awhile.
