Sox Bats Go Into Hibernation Against Cy Guthrie

August 21 vs. Orioles


KW's Daily Special:
Reggie Bars and Lemon Chill
Kenny pulls out the chewy, chocolately Reggie bars in honor of Big Jim Thome's career homer #564. The Lemon Chill represents the only thing on the planet colder than the Sox bats right now.

Short Take:  Sox lose to the O’s 5-1, but Jim Thome passes Reggie Jackson on the all-time home run list.

Another Friday night, another game off the schedule, and another disappointing loss by the White Sox. Even though Gavin Floyd pitched stellar ball into the 8th inning, the Sox bats could not give him any run support off Oriole starter Jeremy Guthrie (8-12, 5.45 ERA now). Behind two homers by Brian Roberts, Baltimore downed the Sox by a score of 5-1. With the loss, the Good Guys drop to 3.5 games back, their deepest deficit in many weeks.

The first seven innings of the game were a great pitcher’s duel between Gavin Floyd and Jeremy Guthrie. Floyd’s only mistake was a solo homer to Brian Roberts in the top of the 3rd. Guthrie’s only mistake was a solo homer to Jim Thome in the bottom of the 4th. Thome’s homer, the 564th of his career, tied the game at 1-1 and put Thome one homer ahead of “Mr. October” Reggie Jackson on the all-time list.

Thome hopes to get another chance to play in October himself before the end of his career. Time is unfortunately running out this year if the Sox bats don’t come alive. In the top of the 8th, Gavin Floyd, well over the 100-pitch mark, gave up a one-out single to Felix Pie and then a two-run homer to Brian Roberts, his 2nd of the game and 14th on the season. With Baltimore up 3-1, Ozzie let a worn-down Gavin stay in the game long enough to give up a double to Cesar Izturis and then an intentional walk to Adam Jones. Finally, Matt Thornton was called in for relief. Izturis was caught trying to steal third, but Nick Markakis lined a triple into the rightfield corner to score Jones (Orioles up 4-1). Ty Wigginton ended the scoring by lacing an rbi single into centerfield to score Markakis and give the Birds a 5-1 lead, enough for the victory. Credit Guthrie with a well-deserved victory and Floyd with a tough-luck loss.

The Sox hook up again with Baltimore tonight at the Cell at 6:05pm. The game will be broadcast on WGN tv. Johnny Danks (10-8) will take the mound against David Hernandez (4-5). The Sox need to win the next two games against Baltimore to stay in the hunt. Let’s get it done.

WSI's
Critic's Corner:
 The Sox fall to 3.5 back while checking off another game on the schedule. Things are getting chilly.
