Not So Pretty in Pink

May 11th at Seattle Mariners

"These ain't your daddy's White Sox... We're going to keep going after a championship as aggressively as we can."

KW's Hole Cards:
Drawing to an inside straight when you're holding 3, 4, 6, 7 and all the 5s have been played already.


Short Take: Happy Motherís Day--if youíre a Mariners fan. If youíre a Sox fan, not so much.

Was I seeing things, or do the vendors out there really sell shish-kabobs up and down the aisles? Well regardless, it looked at first like the Sox were going to make shish-kabob out of the Mariners for the third straight day, but it was not to be. Final score: Mariners 6, Sox 3.

It all started out innocently enough with three straight hits. Orlando Cabrera to right, Carlos Quentin to center, and Jim Thome to left, scoring OC. Paulie struck out--and heíd better stop it!--then AJ doubled to left, driving in CQ. Unfortunately, Crede flied out and Swisher struck out. Result: what started with three straight hits wound up only scoring two runs. Omen, you think? Better believe it. Ichiro led off the bottom of the frame with a double, then went to third on an error. Miguel Cairo--sorry, but that guyís name always makes me think of Peter Lorre in The Maltese Falcon--grounded out, sacrificing him home. Two more groundouts, including a nice play by Cabrera, ended the threat, but the Mariners had cut the deficit in half. End of one, Sox 2, Mariners 1.

Sox got through the second unscathed, but it was obvious all afternoon that Gavin didnít have his best stuff. Bottom three, that pest Ichiro singled, then stole second. Cairo was HBP. Beltre grounded into a double play that sent Ichiro to third. So there were two outs. Unfortunately, the damn rules insist on three. The next batter, Ibanez, homered, and all of a sudden, it was Mariners 3, Sox 2. Sox went three up, three down in the top of the fourth. In the bottom, the Mariners scored two more runs and the Sox brain trust finally figured out that maybe, just maybe, Floyd didnít have it. So they pulled him and sent in Nick Masset. End of four, Mariners 5, Sox 3.

But wait! It gets worse. Top of five, Thome walked, PK singled. Runners on 1st and 2nd. Sounds good? Well, AJ flied out, Crede popped out, Swisher flied out. Maybe one of them should have--oh, I donít know--tried to hit it ON THE GROUND? Anyway, thatís all you need to know. When the smoke cleared, the Sox had come up losers and some guy named Putz got the save for Seattle. That seems appropriate.

Bright side? We won two out of three. Now the guys are heading down to face the LAA of A for a four-game series starting tomorrow before taking on the Giants for a three-game weekend series to open interleague play. Mark Buehrle faces some guy named Nick Adenhart, a twenty-one-year-old rook who has an 11.37 ERA. Heaven help us!
