Ozzieball Fails in Extras

April 8 vs. Cleveland


Immunity:
Sergio Santos
Exiled:
Mark Teahen

Sergio Santos pitched a perfect inning in his Major League debut, striking out one. Mark Teahen has no hits and is lackluster on defense.

Short Take:   Sox blow lead in the eighth, lose to Indians in extras

On a cold night in Chicago, White Sox starter Gavin Floyd pitched well through six innings, giving up two runs, both earned, on five hits. He walked three batters, but in turn, he struck out seven in a 5-3 loss in eleven innings at US Cellular Field.

Cleveland got on the board in the top of the third. Michael Brantley singled to center, moved to second on a pickoff error by Floyd, and wound up at third after a sacrifice bunt from Asdrubal Cabrera. Grady Sizemore hit a single to right, scoring Brantley. Gordon Beckham made a great diving stop to get Shin-Soo Choo to ground into a double play to end the inning. The Indians would score another run in the top of the fifth and lead the Sox 2-0.

The bottom of the fifth inning looked promising. After Alex Rios grounded out, Justin Masterson walked Mark Teahen and gave up singles to both Alexei Ramirez and Juan Pierre to load the bases. Beckham struck out swinging, but Masterson walked Carlos Quentin, allowing Teahen to score. Paul Konerko came up to bat with the bases loaded but unfortunately struck out to end the inning.

After reliever Sergio Santos pitched a perfect inning in his Major League debut, the Sox came out and scored some runs. Tony Sipp walked Pierre to lead off the inning, and Beckham laid down a sacrifice bunt. Quentin came in and hit a two-run home run to left center field, and the Sox take a 3-2 lead. Matt Thornton came in for the eighth inning. After striking out both Sizemore and Choo, Thornton allowed a single to Travis Hafner and a double to Jhonny Peralta. Hafner scored on the double, tying the game at three.

Bobby Jenks, Randy Williams, and JJ Putz looked good in the ninth and tenth innings, allowing one hit and striking out four. Putz returned in the top of the eleventh. Valbuena bunted the ball down the third baseline that Teahen should have let roll foul. Instead, Valbuena reaches safely and moves to second on a sacrifice bunt. Cabrera drives in Valbuena, Sizemore drives in Cabrera, and the Indians have a 5-3 lead they would hold to end the game.

The Sox struck out twelve times and left eleven on base in another poor offensive showing. Cleveland pitchers allowed seven walks, yet the Sox only capitalized on that once.

The Twinkies come to town for three games starting tomorrow. Jim Thome returns to the South Side, as John Danks gets the start against Francisco Liriano at 7:10pm on WCIU.

TBGR Diary:
 I don't understand why Ozzie had Beckham bunt twice to move Pierre to second. I though Pierre was a base stealer. Beckham bunting completely defeats that purpose.
