Heat Stroke on the South Side

May 23 vs. Florida Marlins

Alex Rios
Freddy Garcia

Rios continued his hot hitting, going 2-for-3 on the afternoon, while the Sweaty One was extra sweaty and extra bad this hot afternoon, giving up seven runs on seven hits in just 2 1/3 innings.

Short Take:   Freddy Garcia was bad, but the bullpen was just as bad, allowing almost as many runs in six innings as Garcia did in less than three!

As a Sox fan, you saw this coming; you may have even predicted it and, consequently, prepared yourself for it. If you did, congratulations -- you know the 2010 version of your team extremely well. You knew deep down that the Sox's chances of sweeping the Marlins this afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field were about as good as that fluffy white stuff falling from the sky on a hot afternoon at the ballpark. Freddy Garcia opposed the Marlins' ace, Josh Johnson. Garcia couldn't get out of the third, whereas Johnson lasted six innings and scattered six hits. The end result was an awful 13-0 loss for the South Siders.

The Marlins started their scoring before the smoke cleared from the fireworks that cap off the intro. Freddy Garcia recorded the first out, then gave up three straight hits to Gaby Sanchez, Hanley Ramirez, and Jorge Cantu. Dan Uggla's RBI ground out made it a 2-0 game, and then Cody Ross put one in the seats, making it 4-0 in favor of the Fish. Things got worse in the second when back-up catcher, Ronny Paulino homered off Garcia, giving his team a comfortable 5-0 lead. An inning later, Garcia walked Jorge Cantu, who came around to score when Dan Uggla homered. Just like that, it was 7-0 in favor of the Marlins and Ozzie had seen enough.

Scott Linebrink came on in relief of Garcia, who hit the showers much earlier than Sox fans would have liked. Linebrink made it out of the third and fourth innings unscathed, but didn't see the fifth, as he was pulled in favor of Randy Williams. That inning saw Cody Ross homer for the second time on the afternoon, which put Florida up 8-0. Williams threw another meatball up to the plate, this time to Jorge Cantu in the sixth inning, and Cantu drove it out of the park.

With the score 9-0 after six, Williams continued his mop-up duty and got hit for three more runs in the seventh. It was 12-0 now, and while the Marlins seemed to take advantage of the fact that U.S. Cellular Field is a hitter's park on a hot, humid afternoon like today, interestingly enough, the Sox's bats were quiet. The Marlins, who scored in every inning except the fourth and ninth, tacked on one more run in the eighth. Wes Helms led off with an infield hit and went to third on Ronny Paulino's double. Two outs later, Helms scored when Gaby Sanchez reached base on the second infield hit of the inning. The final score was an embarrassing 13-0, dropping the Sox to 18-25 on the season.

With their win yesterday afternoon, the Sox did win the series, but dropped another Sunday matinee and have not won more than two in a row in a month. The Sox now hit the road for seven games -- Cleveland for three and Tampa for four. Tomorrow night, the Sox will send John Danks (3-3, 2.26 ERA) to the mound, and he will hopefully receive something that is foreign to him... run support! Danks will oppose Cleveland's Justin Masterson (0-4, 5.65 ERA), and the Sox will try and beat the cellar-dwellers of the A.L. Central, which is something they've had difficulty doing so far this season. The first pitch is set for 6:05p CDT from Progressive Field and the game will be broadcast on WCIU.

TBGR Diary:
 Just when you think the Sox could be on to something after winning two in a row, this afternoon's contest happens and you find yourself right back at square one.
