Sox Pitching is All Wet Tonight

May 2nd vs. the Texas Rangers


KW's Daily Special:
Low Drama at Rain-Delay Theater
Jose Contreras lets Texas have some batting practice as the Sox lose 9-6.

Short Take:On a rainy evening in Texas, Sox pitching did mop-up duty all night.

Tonight in Texas, the carryout special from Kenny's Burger Joint this night was a foul-tasting soup. The White Sox endured long rain delays and Jose Contreras' generous portions of soft pitches to Rangers hitters. It's not clear how much longer Master Chef Ozzie Guillen will let Contreras keep cooking if Jose keeps burning the main courses. Starting for Texas was Brandon McCarthy, the former Sox hurler (to whom we WSI cranks say thanks for John Danks).

As an appetizer, the White Sox scored a run in the 2nd as Paul Konerko was hit by a pitch, then took third on a single by A.J. Pierzynski. A sacrifice fly by Alexei Ramirez brought Konerko home. But in the Texas 3rd, Contreras gave away walks to the first two batters and then gave up a long home run to Hank Blalock.

The Rangers weren't done feasting on Contreras' high-carbohydrate pitches. In the bottom of the 4th, Texas scored 6 times after Jose served up three doubles and a single. Ozzie saw enough of his cooking and brought in Clayton Richard, who allowed two more doubles and another single. The kitchen in Kenny's Joint was a mess as the Rangers led 9-1.

There was a rhythm to the evening: the tarp came on, the tarp came off, the Rangers hit hard, the White Sox did not. That rhythm held until the 6th inning, when Jim Thome singled, after which Jermaine Dye was hit in the hand by a pitch (ouch), followed by a walk to Paul Konerko, followed by a Kenny's favorite cold cut: a grand salami by A.J. Pierzynski. In the Sox' 7th, Chris Getz doubled and then went to third on Josh Fields' single. Big Jim Thome followed with his 400th career double and picked up an RBI as Getz came home. Now it's 9-6 and we're thinking the mess in the kitchen can be cleaned up later. Broadway, Thornton, and Carrasco took their turns in Kenny's kitchen as they held the hungry Texans to 9 runs.

Another rain delay in the bottom of the 8th brought out the grounds crew and more of their tarp-roll tango. But the 9th inning followed as the Sox left the soggy field with a 9-6 loss. The evening truly went from soup to nuts.

Critic's Corner:
Will somebody tell Jose that batting practice is supposed to be before the game?

A. J. Pierzynski

A.J. provided a flash of hope with a 6th-inning grand slam, though it went for naught in a wet 9-6 loss in Texas.
