Bad, Bad Baseball in the Bronx

August 29th vs. the New York Yankees


KW's Daily Special:
Sour Creamed
The Sox couldn't pitch, couldn't catch, couldn't throw, and it even rained in New York. Other than that, how was your day?

Short Take:Jose Contreras led the lemmings off the cliff as the Sox lose 10-0 to the Yanks.

There are days at Kenny's Burger Joint that the staff would just as soon forget. There was the time that a bottle of Tabasco sauce tipped and spilled on the dessert tray -- spicy cheesecake was not what the customer ordered. And then there was the time the salt got mixed up with the sugar -- what a reaction they got on the donut glaze!

Today was one of those days. The White Sox showed up at Yankee Stadium, which is about all that can be said. Not much else happened that was any good. By a score of 10-0, the Sox lost to the Yankees, getting more errors than hits. Sigh.

Let's get this over with: Jose Contreras started, but he stopped after only 3-1/3 innings after yielding eight runs, six earned, to the New York grandees. It began soon enough in the second inning, as Nick Swisher led off with a single, followed by a Robinson Cano double. Jerry Hairston promptly doubled them both in. Contreras apparently was so verklempt that he next walked Jose Molina, who was sacrificed to second by Derek Jeter with Hairston going to third. Johnny Damon then doubled both runners home. 4-0 New York after two.

In the fourth inning the Yankee parade continued. Jeter singled to lead off, then stole second. Damon got on base on a fielder's choice, which was a poor choice as Contreras and Jason Nix made throwing errors allowing Jeter to make third and Damon to make second. Alex Rodriguez singled Jeter home and sent Damon to third. Hideki Matsui doubled, scoring Damon and sending Rodriguez to third. At this point D.J. Carrasco mercifully replaced Contreras. Didn't help much, as Swisher singled and drove in Rodriguez. Then Cano grounded to second, scoring Matsui. The Gotham Gentlemen now lead 8-0 after four.

Two additional runs scored in the sixth and the eighth, respectively, as Mark Teixeira walked in the sixth and was later singled home by Cano. In the eighth, everybody's poster boy, Alex Rodriguez, hit a solo homer. By this time it's 10-0 for the home team.

During all this carrying-on by the Yankees, the White Sox seemed dazed and confused. The only hit was a fifth-inning double by Jim Thome, which only prevented the Sox from being no-hit. Otherwise it was an isolated blip for a team that has effectively flatlined. Three errors, batting-practice-quality pitching, and we have a long, long afternoon.

There will be a game tomorrow. There's little else to say. In the meantime, clean up the spills in the kitchen and cook another meal.

Zero stars. Terrible. Wake me when it's over.
