Offensive Slumber Resumes

June 14 vs. Colorado Rockies

"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:
A, 3, & a pair of Jokers
When the starting pitcher dominates, but the team racks up just a few hits, chances are they can't do anything with 'em.

Short Take:   Not much to say... An offensive slumber results in a 2-0 loss.

After last night's come-from-behind win in the bottom of the 7th inning, the near-sellout crowd at U.S. Cellular Field hoped their White Sox would continue the nine game home winning streak. Unfortunately for the Sox and that near-sellout crowd of 35,663, the Sox couldn't do anything with any of their three hits, even the one Pierzynski got in the bottom of the ninth. The end result... a 2-0 shutout.

John Danks started for the Sox and he continued his dominance, throwing six shutout innings and scattering five hits. Unfortunately for him, that quality start was wasted, as his teammates managed just three hits off Jorge De La Rosa.

Colorado logged their first hit in the third inning, courtesy of Willy Taveras, who doubled to left. In the fourth, Matt Holliday led off with a single and after Todd Helton went down looking and Garret Atkins flew out to right, Brad Hawpe singled to left center, moving Holliday to third, but Danks left him there. One inning later, Omar Quintanilla singled with one out and went to second on a Danks wild pitch, but never went any further. In the sixth, Matt Holliday led off with a double to deep left and after Helton struck out swinging, Holliday went to third on another wild pitch by Danks. Like the other innings, he never dented the plate.

The scoring started in the 7th for the Rockies off reliever Octavio Dotel. Jeff Baker led off with a ground rule double and Yorvit Torrealba sacrified him to third with a grounder to Dotel. After Omar Quintanilla grounded out to first, Willy Taveras reached base on an error by Paul Konerko, allowing Baker to come in with the first of Colorado's two runs. Ryan Spilborghs ended the inning with a strikeout.

In the top of the ninth, the Rockies plated one more, thanks to a throwing error by reliever, Nick Masset. Yorvit Torrealba led off the inning with a single, and Omar Quintanilla sacrificed to the pitcher, moving Torrealba into scoring position. Willy Taveras, who caused all sorts of fits for the Sox tonight, reached on an infield single and Torrealba came around to score on Masset's throwing error, plating the second and final run for Colorado and in the ballgame.

Tomorrow afternoon, the Sox look to start another home winning streak and to take the series against the Rockies. Jose Contreras (6-4) looks to get back to his winning ways, and will have to do so against Colorado's Aaron Cook (9-3). The first pitch is set for 1:05p CDT at U.S. Cellular Field and the game will be broadcast on CSN.
