The Puzzle Known as Padilla

May 10 vs. Texas Rangers


KW's Daily Special:
Underdone Pork Chop
Padilla baffled Kenny's staff, who only managed two hits! UGH!

Short Take:   Bartolo Colon fell victim to the one bad inning and his slumbering offense didn't offer him much hope of rebounding from it, as the Sox fall again on a Sunday.

With the drama surrounding Jenks throwing behind Ian Kinsler last night, in order to send a message to the Rangers, the Sox looked to prove they were the superior team this afternoon. Too bad their plan was thwarted, as the Sox allowed Vicente Padilla to look like Cy Young, only managing two hits off the guy. The final damage, 7-1 Texas.

In the top of the second, Bartolo Colon allowed a solo shot to Hank Blalock, putting Texas up early, 1-0. The Sox came back and tied it in their half, though. Jermaine Dye and Jim Thome were issued back-to-back walks, setting up what looked like could be a productive inning for the Sox. However, Paul Konerko followed by grounding in to a 6-4-3 double play, moving Dye to third. He came in on Padilla's wild pitch, tying the game at one a piece.

The score remained 1-1 until the top of the fifth when the Rangers sent ten men to the plate. Chris Davis homered to start the inning and after Jarrod Saltalamacchia struck out, Elvin Andrus singled to center. The pesky Ian Kinsler bunted his way on and Omar Vizquel doubled, scoring Andrus. It was 3-1 Rangers, and they weren't done yet. Marlon Byrd walked and after Hank Blalock flied out to left, Nelson Cruz drew the bases loaded walk and earned the easiest RBI possible, 4-1 Texas. Ozzie had seen enough and went to get Colon in favor of Clayton Richard. He allowed an infield single to David Murphy, which scored the fifth run of the game for the Rangers.

The Sox continued to look absolutely clueless against Padilla, and the Rangers continued to capitalize. With D.J. Carrasco on the mound, Hank Blalock teed off again to make it a 6-1 ballgame.

The top of the eighth saw the Rangers strike once more, this time off Lance Broadway. David Murphy singled to center and Chris Davis doubled him home one batter later. It was 7-1, which would be the eventual final score. The Sox looked baffled the entire game, save TCQ, who doubled off Padilla in the fourth, and Chris Getz, who singled off him in the eighth. That was all the Sox could muster off a guy with an ERA of just under five.

The Sox hit the road once again after this ballgame- it is May after all! This time, they're headed to Cleveland for a three-game series against MLB's worst, the 11-21 Indians. Gavin Floyd (2-2, 6.29) looks to right his own personal ship, along with the team's, while the Indians will send Carl Pavano (2-3, 6.61) to the mound. Based on these ERAs, tomorrow night's contest could be a slugfest. The first pitch is scheduled for 6:05p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WCIU.
