The Downward Spiral Continues in KC

May 14 at Kansas City


Immunity:
AJ
Exiled:
Teahen

AJ's ducksnort gives the Sox their only run, while Teahen continues his cringe-worthy work at the hot corner.

Short Take:   The Sox offense looks anemic against Gil Meche and his plus-8.00 ERA. Non-sensical Ozzie-ball tonight features Omar Vizquel at DH, while Mark Teahen starts at third and continues to look like a butcher.

The Sox ran their Friday record to one victory and five defeats last night in Kansas City. Things looked promising from the get-go. Surely the Sox offense would come alive against Gil Meche, as he entered the game with an 0-4 record and 8.24 ERA. Guess Again. The Sox left eight men on base and were 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position. Mark Buehrle looked phenomenal through five innings, but the Royals found a chink in his armor late, exploding for five runs in the bottom of the 7th for a 6-1 victory.

The Sox tallied their only run of the game as AJ Pierzysnki flipped a duck snort into leftfield to score Omar Vizquel in the top of the 5th to give the Sox a 1-0 lead. The Sox offense would go into hibernation for the rest of the night. However, with Mark Buehrle absolutely cruising on the mound, things looked positive.

Buehrle was perfect through four innings. In the fifth, KC broke it up when Jose Guillen dropped a single into right field that Mark Kotsay couldn’t quite catch up to. After making a sensational play to save a run in the top of the 6th, Yuniesky Betancourt lead off the next inning and tomahawked a homer into the leftfield bleachers to tie the game at 1-1.

Things began to unravel quickly for Buehrle and the Sox in the bottom of the 7th. David DeJesus lead off with a single and advanced to third on a duck snort to right by Billy Butler. Jose Guillen gave KC a 2-1 lead with a soft single to center, scoring DeJesus. Alberto Callaspo singled past Teahen to load the bases (a ball that should have been caught). Mitch Maier singled hard to CF to drive in two runs and give KC a 4-1 lead. Tony Pena relieved Buehrle, but the carnage continued. Jason Kendall drove in a run with a single. Randy Williams relieved Pena, but quickly gave up a base hit to Mike Aviles. When the bleeding ended with Scott Linebrink getting the third out, the Royals had a 6-1 lead.

Credit Dusty Hughes with the victory (1-1), while Buehrle gets charged with the loss (2-5). With Andruw Jones and Carlos Quentin hopefully back in the lineup for the rest of the series, the Sox will try to win the next two games and make this a positive road trip.

 The Sox fall to seven games below .500. Kenny, get on the phone.
