Another Wasteful Night

September 17 at New York Yankees

"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:

Kenny's Grand Bullpen continues to implode.

Short Take:   Clayton Richard throws his heart out, but Sox can't hit Yankees' trash.

Clayton Richard pitched the game of his season tonight. The Sox bats replied with a nice middle finger right back at him. All Richard did was throw 6 2/3 innings giving up five hits and two runs. Those two runs came in the seventh inning in tonight's 5-1 loser.

Meanwhile, the Yankees countered with Phil Hughes and his 7+ ERA. As usual, the Sox didn't know what hit them. They looked just as pathetic as Hughes did while he was throwing 89 pitches in four innings of work. The lone run the Sox were able to score came in the third inning. Everyone's favorite "the small ball way" got the tally. Orlando Cabrera doubled then was bunted over to third by Dewayne Wise. Jermaine Dye grounded out to bring home Cabrera giving the Sox a 1-0 lead.

And that was it. Got get 'em Clayton!

And he did. He plowed through the Yankee lineup. After a one out, four pitch walk in the seventh inning to Alex Rodriguez, Jason Giambi moved A-Rod into scoring position with a ground out. Ozzie came out to see what Richard had left, then probably realized he doesn't have anything left in the bullpen. Richard stayed in the game and surrendered a single to Xavier Nady to tie the game. Next batter Robinson Cano doubled, putting runners on second and third with two outs.

Ozzie had no choice but to pull Richard and take a chance on his clown car of a bullpen. Mike MacDougal came out and threw a wild pitch scoring Nady giving the Yankees a 2-1 lead.

The Yankees put the game away in the eighth off Scott Linebrink. Johnny Damon hit a two run home run and A-Rod served a solo shot just over the right field fence.

If the Sox don't make it to the postseason party you could look to games like this where the Sox have got excellent starting pitching like in the last week and in April and May. It doesn't get any easier tomorrow when the Sox will play their final game at Yankee Stadium. Javier Vazquez goes against Mike Mussina for the 6:05pm start. The game is televised on WGN.

WSI's
Quest For the Final Table Update:
 With the Twins loss, the Sox magic number goes down to 9 with 10 (maybe 11) to play.
