Cy Duensing too much for Sox

July 29 at Minnesota


KW's Daily Special:
Horse dung
Great road trip, guys!

Short Take:The Sox complete a miserable road trip with a 1-6 record and drop into third place.

What happens when you walk a Twinkie in a tie game leading off the sixth inning? You lose. That's what happened to Jose Contreras on Wednesday night at the Metrodome.

With the score tied 2-2, Contreras gave former Sox third baseman Joe Crede a free pass and predictable results followed. The Twinkies bunted Crede over to second and he scored on one of Alexi Casilla's patented bloop hits. Your final score: Minnesota 3, White Sox 2.

The Sox tried to rally in the ninth against Twinkie closer Joe Nathan. They placed runners on second and third with two outs. One base hit could have given the South Siders the lead. Wouldn't you know it, Sox newcomer Mark Kotsay hit a screaming liner that landed in the glove of Twinkie right fielder Mike Cuddyer. You can't hit a ball any harder than Kotsay did, but there are no breaks to be had in the Dump Dome.

Of course, the Sox didn't make their own breaks against Minnesota starter Brian "Cy" Duensing. The left-hander, an emergency starter for Francisco Liriano (out with a forearm injury), managed to get through five innings while only giving up two runs. The Sox should have pounded Duensing, who entered with a 5.50 ERA. Unfortunately, they could only manage solo home runs by Jayson Nix and Carlos Quentin.

Contreras (4-10) took the loss, lasting 5 2/3 innings. He walked five and two of them scored. That, and the lackluster offense, proved to be his undoing.

The Sox finish the trip with a miserable 1-6 record. They will try to get back on track tomorrow night against the AL East leading New York Yankees. Gavin Floyd (8-6, 4.24 ERA) pitches for our Sox. He will be opposed by steroid abuser Andy Pettitte (8-6, 4.67 ERA). Game time is 7:11, oh thank heaven it will not be played in a dome.
