WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Far from perfect

April 21 vs. Tampa Bay


Immunity:
Southpaw
Exiled:
Randy Williams

Our mascot brought smiles to the faces of frigid fans everywhere, even though Williams couldn't get the ball over the plate to save his soul.

Short Take:The Rays knocked Mark Buehrle out early and embarrassed the Sox on a dreary night at the Cell.

Mark Buehrle tossed a perfect game the last time he pitched against the Tampa Bay Rays at U.S. Cellular Field. You might say things went just slightly worse Wednesday night, as the Sox got steamrolled 12-0 in the latest in a long line of early-season embarrassments.

Buehrle (2-2) lasted only 4 2/3 innings. He allowed six runs on nine hits and got little help from his defense. During Tampa Bay's four-run fourth inning, Gordon Beckham and Paul Konerko let a popup off the bat of Carlos Pena fall in foul territory. Given new life, Pena worked a walk. The floodgates opened shortly thereafter. I'll spare you the gory details.

The Sox trailed 6-0 after five innings, and the Rays tacked on six more runs in the sixth against the not-so-stellar relief combo of Tony Pena and Randy Williams. Among the 17 pitches Williams made, only four found the strike zone. He retired none of the five hitters he faced and walked in two runs.

And, oh, by the way, the Sox offense still sucks. They managed only four hits for the game. Tampa Bay starter Wade Davis (1-1) cruised through six innings, allowing only two singles to Juan Pierre.

With the loss, the Sox have dropped 10 of their first 15 games this season. One game remains to be played in this Tampa Bay series, and it will be the rubber match. Jake Peavy (0-0, 6.00 ERA) will pitch for the Sox. His mound opponent will be right-hander James Shields (1-0, 4.50 ERA). Game time is 7:10. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet Plus 2.
