Sox (and Teahen) On Their Heels

April 16 at Cleveland


Immunity:
Paulie
Exiled:
Mark Teahen

It's almost sacrilegious to see Teahen wearing #23 at the hot corner

Short Take: † Teahenís error costs the Sox while the offense continues to sputter

The Sox entered Progressive Field on Friday night hoping that Mark Buehrle could continue his hot start and run his record to 3-0 on the season. Unfortunately, the cold bats of the Pale Hose couldnít provide enough run support to accomplish the task, and Buehrleís defense faltered behind him to seal the defeat to Mitch Talbot and the Cleveland Indians by a score of 6-2. Yes, M-i-t-c-h T-a-l-b-o-t. More on that later.

The Sox took an early lead with Paulie Konerkoís 4th homerun of the season, a solo shot off Talbot in the 2nd. The lead didnít last long, though, as the Tribe struck back in the bottom of the 4th. Austin Kearnsí rbi single on a first-pitch cutter by Buehrle scored Jhonny Peralta to tie the game, and the next batter, Luis Valbuena, rocketed a Buehrle pitch into the right field stands to give Cleveland a 3-1 lead.

The Sox crept back to within a run in the 6th as Alexei Ramirez scored on a rare defensive gaff by Shin-Soo Choo. It was certainly no play to sneeze at, as the Sox found themselves with the tying run at 2nd base with no outs. However, an extremely questionable sacrifice bunt call by Ozzie Guillen quickly took the Sox out of the inning.

The Indians blew the game open in the bottom of the 6th when Mark Teahen let a hard hit ball eat him alive at third instead of trying to charge it. What could have been the third out of the inning to let Buehrle off the hook turned into a two-run error. The next batter, Asdrubal Cabrera, smacked an rbi double to run the score to 6-2 in favor of the Tribe. Meanwhile, the Sox bats went into full hibernation mode as Mitch Talbot pitched nine innings of six-hit ball with no walks. Talbot, and Thursday nightís pitcher David Huff, also became the first Indians pitchers to pitch back-to-back complete game victories since late 1996. Hmpf. The Sox only accomplished that four times in a row as recently as 2005.

Itís a battle of the Jakes tomorrow (Peavy vs. Westbrook) fittingly at the former Jacobs Field. Hopefully the Sox bats will come alive and show some life. Go Sox.

TBGR Diary:
†The Sox will attempt to win the next two against the Tribe this weekend, hopefully salvaging the series before an off-day on Monday. It already seems like a broken record, but the hitting and defense are awful so far. The Sox are 4-7, good for last place in the AL Central.
