Another two hits by Omar, while AJ grounds out 6-4-3 to kill a rally

Short Take:  The White Sox get demolished by the Cleveland Indians as the franchise appears now to be in complete and utter disarray. Embarrassing.

There‘s not much to talk about here. The White Sox were destroyed on Friday night by a terrible ball club in the Cleveland Indians. The problem is that the Indians now own a 7-3 record against the Sox in their ten meetings this year. The rest of the league owns the Tribe, but Cleveland owns the Sox. To make matters worse, Justin Masterson earned his first victory of the season. The Sox batters were held to just six scattered hits on the game. The lone bright spot was a solo homer by Alexei Ramirez.

Johns Danks continues to get behind in the count, throw too many pitches and generally be very hittable. He earns the loss on the night, running his record to 4-5 on the season. More disconcerting, in his last two starts, his ERA has climbed from 2.37 to 3.60. Astonishingly, he has given up 23 hits in his last 13.1 innings pitched. Danks doesn’t look like the same pitcher he did at the beginning of the season and certainly not one ready to move into the upper echelon of left-handed starters in the game.

Offensively, the Sox game can be encapsulated by one moment. In the bottom of the 6th, down 4-1, the Sox led off with a four-pitch walk by Mark Kotsay. The next batter, TCQ, was plunked on the first pitch. AJ Pierzynski stepped to the plate as the tying run in what was still a very winnable game. Pierzynski jumped on the first pitch instead of showing a little patience, and he quickly, predictably grounded into a 6-4-3 doubleplay to end the rally and any momentum the Sox tried to muster.

The Sox are now a season-low eight games under .500, in addition to being 8.5 games behind the Twins in the AL Central. Perhaps it is time to back up the truck. Sadly, the Sox seem closer to 1999 right now than 2005.
