Davies Dazzles, Shuts Down Sox

September 20 at Kansas City Royals


Sox Magic Number:
6
Better than the 7 it was yesterday, but not as good as the 5 we were hoping for.

Short Take:   Kyle Davies' stuff was too good for the Sox to solve- plain and simple. goes here

Pitching on short rest, Gavin Floyd looked to lengthen the Sox's lead in the A.L. Central to 3 1/2 games and lower the Magic Number to five for the Sox. Unfortunately, a couple of mistakes ended up costing Floyd, as he gave up five runs in 6 1/3 innings. The White Sox tried to make a comeback late, but it just wasn't enough; Sox lose 5-2.

The Royals started scoring in the bottom of the second. Mark Teahen led off with a single to right and after Miguel Olivo went down swinging, Alex Gordon hit a two-run shot, putting the Royals up 2-0- a lead they'd never relinquish. They scored again just an inning later when David DeJesus hit an inside-the-park homerun to deep right. Dye missed the ball and it got away from him, allowing DeJesus to come all the way around with the third run.

The score remained 3-0 until the seventh inning. Floyd got Alex Gordon to ground out to second to lead off the inning, but then Kila Ka'aihue hit his first Major League homerun for the 4-0 lead. Alberto Callaspo followed with a double to deep center, which prompted Ozzie to go get Floyd in favor of Boone Logan. He faced David DeJesus, who reached base via the infield single, and was promptly pulled. Enter Mike MacDougal, who gave up a double to Mike Aviles, scoring Jason Smith, who pinch-ran for Callaspo. It was a 5-0 ballgame until the next half inning.

Kyle Davies had retired 17 White Sox in a row before walking Jim Thome to lead off the eighth. Alexei Raimrez followed and blasted his 20th homerun of the season, putting two runs on the board for the Sox. John Bale relieved Davies and retired the side in order, keeping the score 5-2, which is how it eventually ended.

Tomorrow afternoon at Kauffman Stadium, the Sox look to take the rubber game of the series, as John Danks (10-8) will oppose Brandon Duckworth (3-1). The first pitch is set for 1:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on CSN.

WSI's
Quest For the Final Table Update:
 We sort of won tonight's hand, thanks to the Tampa Bay Rays, who beat the Twins, lowering our Magic Number to six.
