How About Some More Crappy Pitching?

June 2 vs. Texas


Immunity:
Alex Rios
Exiled:
Gavin Floyd

It's time to remove Floyd from the rotation. He is not giving his team a chance to win. Rios had two more hits and continues to be the most consistent player on the team.

Short Take:Gavin Floyd pukes all over the mound (figuratively) at U.S. Cellular Field and the Sox drop their second straight to Texas.

So much for that stellar White Sox starting pitching, huh? Over the last four games, the Sox starters have allowed 25 earned runs over 17 1/3 innings. That pencils out to a 12.98 ERA. No Sox starter has made it out of the sixth inning since last Friday. Blech.

You're not going to win many games that way, and the latest pitching debacle came from right-hander Gavin Floyd Wednesday night. Floyd allowed six runs and eight hits over 2 2/3 innings as the Sox dropped a 9-5 decision to the Texas Rangers.

Floyd (2-6) was brutal from the very start, as he gave up four hits, walked two and uncorked a wild pitch during a painful-to-watch three-run first inning for Texas. The Rangers added two runs in the second and another in the third. At that point, the Sox found themselves in a 6-2 hole. They never recovered.

The Rangers added two runs in the fifth against Sox reliever Tony Pena and another run in the sixth against Randy Williams to increase their lead to 9-2.

Sox first baseman Paul Konerko hit a solo home run in the sixth inning and added a two-run blast in the eighth to make the score a slightly more respectable 9-5. But let's face it, the Sox were never in this game.

Konerko was the lone bright spot, as he collected three hits and drove in four runs. Konerko is now tied with Toronto's Jose Bautista for the league lead in home runs with 16. Frankly, there's nothing else positive that can be said.

The Sox have dropped the first two games of this three-game set to a Rangers team that came into town with an 8-15 road record. The South Siders have one last chance to get it right Thursday night at 7:10. Freddy Garcia (4-3, 5.26 ERA) will pitch for the Sox. Right-hander Colby Lewis (4-3, 3.41 ERA) will be on the mound for Texas. You can watch the game on WCIU.

TBGR Diary:
The first two games of this "make-or-break June" have been brutal for the Sox. I welcome whatever changes Kenny Williams wants to make.
