Steroids King Walks Off Sox

August 26 at Boston


KW's Daily Special:
Vomit
You'll lose your lunch watching the Sox try to hit a knuckleball.

Short Take: Tony Pena brings his gas can to the mound and serves up a home run to known juicer David Ortiz in the bottom of the ninth.

It hasn't been a very good week for Sox fans. To add insult to injury, we had to watch steroids-using Boston legend David Ortiz celebrate a walkoff homer Wednesday night against our White Sox. The blast, served up by gas can Sox reliever Tony Pena (1-2), sent the Red Sox to a 3-2 victory at Fenway Park.

Our Sox dropped their fourth straight game and continued to look lifeless offensively. They managed only a run on six hits in seven innings against ancient Boston knuckleballer Tim Wakefield. The Sox went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position and stranded six runners. Naturally, five of those six runners were left in scoring position. What new?

That one clutch hit came off the bat of Paul Konerko in the first inning. The slow-footed Sox first baseman boomed one over the head of Boston center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury for a rare triple that scored Gordon Beckham and gave the Sox an early 1-0 lead.

Steroids-using Ortiz tied it with a solo homer off Sox starter Gavin Floyd in the second. Light-hitting Boston shortstop Alex Gonzalez homered off Floyd in the sixth to give the Red Sox a 2-1 edge.

Wonder of wonders, the Sox actually came back to tie on a pinch-hit homer by Scott Podsednik in the eighth inning. Thanks to Pods' clutch drive to deep right, the Sox are now 6-for-70 in pinch-hitting situations this year. Yay.

But Sox fans hopes were short-lived, as Pena came on to commit arson in the bottom of the ninth. The Sox will send John Danks (11-8, 3.85 ERA) to the hill tomorrow night in hopes of avoiding a four-game sweep. Junichi Tazawa (2-2, 3.57 ERA) is scheduled to pitch for Boston.
