Can't Win 'em All

May 24 vs. Pittsburgh Pirates


KW's Daily Special:
Slightly overdone half pound hamburger
The burger joint was cookin' until the last inning, when Jenks went on an unscheduled break.

Short Take:   Mark Buehrle was Mark Buehrle, but unfortunately Bobby Jenks wasn't Bobby Jenks, blowing a save opportunity and dropping to 0-2 on the season.

It was a beautiful afternoon for baseball today and while back-to-back shutouts by the Sox pitching staff followed the debacle that was Thursday afternoon, fans didn't think it was too much to ask for a third shutout, but apparently, the team did. After scoring early, the Sox took the lead, only to relinquish it at the worst possible time- the top of the ninth inning. Jenks was off this afternoon, resulting in a 4-3 Sox loss.

Mark Buehrle took the bump for the White Sox and gave up his only run of the afternoon in the first. With two out, Freddy Sanchez singled to right and Craig Monroe did the same, moving Sanchez to third Eric Hinske's ground rule double to right scored Sanchez, giving the Pirates the early 1-0 lead.

The score remained 1-0 in favor of the Pirates until the bottom of the second when the Sox put up a couple runs, courtesy of Brian Anderson. With two out, TCQ doubled and Brian Anderson followed with his second homerun of the season, giving the Sox the advantage, 2-1.

In the fifth, the Sox added to their lead. Brian Anderson successfully bunted his way on and went to second on Chris Getz's grounder to first. Josh Fields singled, scoring B.A. to put the Sox up 3-1.

Mark Buehrle went seven strong innings and continued his dominance, only giving up the one earned run early on. He was relieved by Octavio Dotel in the eighth, who gave up one run after retiring Freddy Sanchez and Craig Monroe. Eric Hinske homered to right, closing the Sox's lead to 3-2, but it looked as though everything would be fine. After all, Jenks would be coming in to picth the ninth for the save.

Things didn't go as planned for Sox fans or Jenks, who allowed two earned runs on three hits after recording the first two outs of the inning. Jack Wilson homered to left, tying the game at three, then Nyjer Morgan doubled to deep right, putting the go-ahead run in scoring position for Delwyn Young. He capitalized on the RBI opportunity with a base hit to left, giving the Pirates their first lead and eventual win of the series, 4-3.

After a nice 4-2 homestand, the Sox go west to Anaheim for three at Angels' Stadium. John Danks (3-3, 4.60) will take the mound for the Sox, and the Angels will send Ervin Santana (0-1, 3.09) to the hill for Los Angeles. The first pitch is set for 8:05p CDT and the game will be broadcast on CSN.

WSI's
Critic's Corner:
 Excellent starting pitching for the first seven innings wasn't enough, as the back end of the bullpen let us down.
