Nighty Night, Sleep Tight

September 16 at Seattle

Short Take: Sox offense turns in a sleep-inducing performance against Cy Rowland-Smith and the Mariners.

With the White Sox playoff hopes fading with each passing day, it's unlikely too many fans stayed up late to watch Wednesday night's game in Seattle. Those who did were probably asleep by the fifth inning, as the Sox lost a 4-1 snoozer to the Mariners.

Add Seattle lefty Ryan Rowland-Smith's name to the canon of greats to shut down the Sox offense this year. While the Sox did have nine hits off Rowland-Smith (4-3) in eight innings, only one went for extra bases. That was a solo home run by Gordon Beckham in the top of the eighth.

For the first seven innings, the Sox hitters remained allergic to hits with runners in scoring position. They had two men on with one out in the second. Carlos Quentin killed that rally by grounding into a double play. In the fifth, the Sox collected three singles but failed to score a run. In the seventh, Alexei Ramirez walked and Jermaine Dye singled to place runners at first and second with no outs. Both men ended up stranded. No runs. A familiar story.

Unfortunately for Gavin Floyd (11-11), bad starts in Seattle are also a familiar story. The Sox righty entered Wednesday's game with an 0-2 lifetime record and a 7.30 ERA at Safeco Field. Not much changed in this contest as Floyd got hit around, giving up three runs in three innings before leaving with a sore left hip. The Mariners added a run in the fourth off reliever D.J. Carrasco to go up 4-0, and that was more than enough offense for Rowland-Smith.

Coupled with Detroit's 4-3 win over Kansas City, the Sox fall 6.5 games out of the division lead with just 16 games left. The South Siders will send lefty John Danks (12-9, 3.71 ERA) to the mound in tomorrow afternoon's series finale in Seattle. He'll be opposed by right-hander Brandon Morrow (1-4, 5.29 ERA).

Critic's Corner:
Meh...I'm so tired of watching the Sox offense suck. No stars.
