A Royal Pain

July 19th vs. Kansas City Royals

"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:
Can't win the game if you don't show up at the table.


Short Take:Sox offense goes missing once again. Final score: Royals 9, Good Guys 1.

What is up with the White Sox offense? Now you see it; now you donít. It almost seems like someone is sitting around somewhere flipping an on/off switch. If thatís the case, letís hope he remembered to flip it back to ďonĒ for todayís game. Or else maybe we can get him to move to Minnesota.

So, if you think you can stand it, cast your mind back to the first inning of the game and weíll start our trip down Recap Highway. Gavin Floyd was a bit wild. After striking out the first batter, the ever-pesky Mark Teahen, he walked the second batter and then sent him to second on a pitch that the Giant from ďJack in the BeanstalkĒ couldnít have caught. However, he got the next two batters, so no harm, no foul. Unfortunately in the bottom of the frame, no offense either as the Sox went down in order.

Top of the second, with one out, Alex Gordon hit a ground-rule double, then stole third easily. Ross Gload walked and things looked a bit dismal, but Gavin managed to pitch his way out of it once again. Bottom of the second, the Sox went down in order and it was beginning to look like it might be one of those nights.

And it was.

The Sox got the first of their two hits in the third, a double by Joe Crede, but nothing came of it. Both teams went down in order in the fourth, but then came the fifth. Ross Gload was safe at first on an error by Joe Crede and he came home on a home run by John Buck. Joey Gathright singled and stole second, Teahen grounded to first, advancing Gathright. After Mike Aviles struck out swinging, David DeJesus was intentionally walked. So of course, the next batter got a hit, scoring Gathright. The next batter lined out, but the Royals had three on the board. The Sox? They went down in order. The scored stayed 3-0 until the bottom of the sixth when Alexei Ramirez tripled and came home on a sac fly by Orlando Cabrera.

And it was 3-1 Good Guys. But thatís as close as they got. Boone Logan came on in the seventh and set them down in order, but after he gave up a single in the eighth, the call went out for Nick Masset. Butler promptly homered, and it was 5-1. Mark Grudzielanek singled and then went to second on Massetís wild pitch. Alex Gordon walked, and Adam Russell came on in relief of Masset. Well, okay; maybe ďreliefĒ isnít exactly the right word because after getting Gload to fly out, he gave up a hit and a walk. Teahen popped out, but a double by Aviles scored three. After eight, it was 9-1 Royals.

And thatís how it ended, folks. Meanwhile, the Twins continue to win the ping-pong games in the Dome and are now only one-half game back. Letís get the rubber game of this series on Sunday. Game time 1:05 Central. Brian Bannister versus Johnny Danks.
