Sliced and Diced

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

Short Take: † Dice-k goes through the Sox batting order like a hot knife through butter

The Sox looked brutal Friday night against the Boston Red Sox and their ace Daisuke Matsuzaka, while only reaching base four times (two hits and two walks). Meanwhile, big-game Javy Vazquez looked pedestrian in every sense, giving up 10 hits, two walks and five runs in 5.2 innings pitched. The White Sox defeat reduces their AL Central lead over the Twins to 0.5 games.

The Red Sox managed to load the bases in the first with nobody out, but they only scored one run in the process thanks to some excellent defense by Jermaine Dye, who crashed into the right field wall to snag a long flyball destined for the seats around Peskyís Pole.

The Carmines held on to their one-run lead until the bottom of the 5th when they tacked on two more. Dustin Pedroia, who went 4-for-4 in the game, led off with a single and stole 2nd before scoring on a David Ortiz double. Shortly after, newly-acquired Mark Kotsay would drive-in Ortiz with a double of his own.

The floodgates opened in the bottom of the sixth thanks to an error by AJ Pierzynski, as he dropped an easy pop-up in foul territory off the bat of Alex Cora. Cora took advantage of his new life by lining a double to right field. After two quick outs by Jason Varitek and Jacoby Ellsbury, Vazquez walked Pedroia. Horacio Ramirez entered the game, allowing Pedroia to steal 2nd before walking Big Papi. With the bases loaded, DJ Carrasco was called in, and he hit Kevin Youkilis, forcing in Cora and giving the Red Sox a 4-0 lead. Ex-Pirate Jason Bay cleared the bases with a double to deep center to give the Red Sox a 7-0 advantage

Lance Broadway got a taste of the Red Sox lineup in the 8th, giving up singles to Pedroia and Ortiz before a Youkilis double brought Pedroia home to give Boston an eight-run lead.

Meanwhile, the Pale Hose offense fluttered all night against Dice-k. The Sox got off to a bad start when Jacoby Ellsbury robbed Orlando Cabrera of extra bases to lead off the game with a sensational diving catch of a ball in CF. After that, the Sox could only muster a Jermaine Dye single in the 2nd and an Alexei Ramirez single and stolen base in the 3rd. Besides walks to JD in the 4th and TCQ in the 7th, the Sox went 0-for-21 to end the game after Alexeiís 3rd inning single. Matsuzaka went 8.0 innings, giving up two hits and two walks, while striking out seven.

Dice-k gets the win to run his record to 16-2, probably making a case for the Cy Young if Cliff Lee runs into some bad luck, while Vazquez (10-12) gets the loss. Hopefully the Sox can salvage this series and cross-your fingers we donít face Matsuzaka in the playoffs.
