Gavin Continues His '09 Struggles

May 5 @ Kansas City Royals


KW's Daily Special:
Molded Cheese Platter
Started off tasting great; but, later on, it slowly molded into an inedible dish.

Short Take:Gavin Floyd continued giving up runs like hotcakes in '09, surrendering two comfortable leads in the process, as our Palehose fell to the Royals for the 4th time in 5 games.

For the past couple of decades, the Palehose have pretty much had their way with the Kansas City Royals--it's been pretty laughable, actually. This season, matching up with the Royals have been no laughing matter, as the tenants of Kaufman Stadium have bested our Good Guys in four of the first five games. Gavin Floyd was unable to hault the losing streak, which has now reached four games. Our Sox lost a Tuesday night game in extra innings 8-7.

Our Sox opened up a quick 4-0 lead after the first 3 times at bat. In the 2nd, a pair of 2005 World Series heros got in on the action, as Scott Podsednik singled in Paul Konerko. A pair of round-trippers by Josh Fields (a lead-off solo shot) and Jermaine Dye (scoring Jim Thome) in the third increased their lead.

The next frame, our Sox were quickly able to recover from a solo shot given up by Floyd to Alberto Callaspo, as TCQ singled in Chris Getz, who earlier singled and advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch, giving our Palehose a nice 5-1 lead 3.5 frames in. Unfortunately, the Royals began to battle back in the fourth, as Mark Teahen and Jose Guillen both singled to start things off and were plated on Mike Jacobs' round-tripper.

In the fifth, our Sox continued to battle, as Dye singled and was "first-and-thirded" by AJ Pierzynski. The Cuban Missile and Podsednik knocked in Dye and Pierzynski respectively, giving our Sox their final runs of the game before the Royals completely took over.

In the sixth, KC got a pair of runs back, as Callaspo doubled in Guillen, while Coco Crisp drew a bases-loaded walk, scoring Billy Butler. Floyd's rough outing was complete; however, Matt Thornton was unable to preserve the slimmest of leads, as he gave up a two-bagger, which scored Teahen.

Octavio Dotel, Scott Linebrink, and DJ Carrasco strung together four innings of scoreless relief; however, this one all ended when Lance Broadway hit a costly bump in the road in the bottom of the 11th, as he loaded the bases for Sox-killer John Buck, who singled in Mitch Maier with 2 outs to end the game and send the Sox home on a somber note. Hopefully our fortunes will turn shortly, as our Sox return home for another two-game series--this time against Detroit. This Wednesday night affair should be a dandy, as Mark Buehrle and Armando Galarraga, arguably both teams' aces, both take the mound. Tune in on WCIU at 7:11 if you can't make it out to 35th & Shields.

Critic's Corner:
Give this one 3 stars: Home runs to Fields and Dye, as well as a solid night at the plate by Pierzynski.
