A Royal Pain: Part II

July 20th 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:
Someone needs to tell Coach Cox that it's not a good idea to draw to an inside straight.


Short Take: Sox lost.

Hello? Chicago White Sox? Okay, thatís enough. Stop messing with your fansí heads, why donítícha? This isnít funny anymore. If you guys are going to make it to the playoffs, let alone the World Series, you have to--and Iím sure youíve heard this before--beat teams like the Kansas City Royals. Final score: Royals 8, Sox 7.

Canít complain about the offense today. There was plenty of it. Only problem was the pitching was somewhat offensive, also. It all started in the first when Johnny Danks, who obviously didnít have his best stuff, couldnít seem to get anybody out and before the average Sox fan got settled into her recliner with her trusty beer alongside, it was 4-0 Royals. Ahh, but wait! The Sox also got something going in the bottom of the frame off pitcher Brian Bannister. With two out, Carlos Quentin singled, and then so did Jermaine Dye. And look, Ma! Big Jim Thome got into the act, singling to center and driving in TCQ. JD went to third. Then Paulie got HBP and Big Jim went to second. Nick Swisher walked in the second run of the inning, and the bases were juiced for Joe Crede. Unfortunately, he struck out to end the inning. But the Sox were on the board. After one, Royals 4, Sox 2.

Top two. Danks still couldnít seem to figure out what was happening and the Royals got one back. It was 5-2 Royals and it stayed that way until the bottom of the third when Joe Crede went yard with two on and two out (again!) to tie things up. And that lead held up for exactly one-half inning. The Royals continued to solve The Mystery That Wasnít Johnny Danks and after 4, they led 6-5.

Stayed that way until the bottom of seven when Jim Thome led off with a double and Swish homered to give the Sox their first--and unfortunately last--lead. In the top of eight, Dotel came on, followed by Matt Thornton. They combined to give the Royals the 8-7 lead, which is the way it all ended. Sox had a chance to get back in it in the bottom of the eighth, but AJ Pierzynski, who had doubled, was thrown out by a mile at home on a single to left by Brian Anderson, who had come on when JD was HBP in the fourth.

Sorry, Harold. You deserved better on your special day. And at least the Twins lost. Monday, the Sox cue it up against the Texas Rangers. Letís hope theyíre as bad against us as they were against the Twins.
