Sox Lose Heartbreaker to the As

August 15 at Oakland

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

Someone check Uribe's eyesight. Can't drop foul ball pop-ups two feet in front of you.

Short Take: Bullpen melts down; Sox cant execute late in the game.

The Sox opened up their weekend series at the House of Horrors (aka the McAfee Coliseum) in typical fashion by blowing a 4-2 lead in the last two innings and handing the As the game on a silver platter. Coupled with a Minnesota win over Seattle, the Sox and Twins are now tied for 1st in the AL Central.

Gavin Floyd pitched well tonight, just shy of a quality start by going 5 2/3 innings, giving up six hits and two runs. The only damage against Floyd came in the 6th when Gavin gave up a single to Big Frank and then left a ball over the plate for Jack Cust who cranked it over the leftfield wall. Juan Uribe made a bone-headed play before Big Hurts single by dropping an easily-catchable foul pop-up. Score it E-5 and credit Floyd with only one earned run.

The Sox took the lead early by scoring three runs in the first inning off Dallas Braden. AJ lead off the hit parade with a solo homer to right field. TCQ singled and then advanced to third on a double by JD deep to leftfield (Dyes 30th two-bagger of the year). With RISP, Jim Thome blooped a ball into center to score Quentin to give the Sox a 2-0 lead. Konerko came up next and brought Dye home with a sac fly to center, 3-0 Good Guys.

The 3-2 score held until the top of the 8th when TCQ added some insurance with his 33rd homer of the year, a bomb to dead centerfield. With a 4-2 lead and the game at hand, Ozzie called on Octavio Dotel for the 8th. Dotel seems to thrive when he comes in during pressures situations. With a two run lead and no runners on, Dotel absolutely blew up. Mark Ellis and Jack Cust both hit solo homers to tie the game 4-4.

Horacio Ramirez worked the 9th and gave up a leadoff double to Emil Brown. Daric Brown sac bunted the pinch runner to third. With DJ Carrasco on in relief, Curt Suzuki hit a pinch hit 2-run homer over the leftfield wall to give the As the victory, 6-4. It was only the As 5th win in their last 29 games. The Sox have only won six games in Oakland since 2001. Horacio Ramirez is credited with the loss (1-2), and Huston Street (the guy we couldnt get at the break from Beane) gets the win (3-5). Get them tomorrow. Need the next two badly.
