Offense Abandons Buehrle

August 8 at Baltimore Orioles


Immunity:
Alex Rios
Exiled:
Paul Konerko

Rios went 2-for-3, having himself a nice afternoon offensively, but Konerko went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Short Take:   Mark Buehrle scattered ten hits and pitched well enough for a win, but his offense was MIA.

With this afternoon's loss in Baltimore, the Sox have now scored three runs in three games against Baltimore starters with a combined record of 10-30. In a word: Yuck! Jeremy Guthrie (6-11) looked like "Cy" Guthrie out on the mound against the Sox, going eight innings and giving up only one run on six hits, fooling White Sox hitters left and right. There was a sign of hope in the ninth, courtesy of Ramon Castro, but it wasn't enough. Sox lose 4-3.

Mark Buehrle (10-9) was shaky in the second, when he gave up four hits, one of which was a Felix Pie homerun, giving the Orioles a 1-0 lead. The Sox tied it in the fifth on an Alex Rios single, and it was the only run they'd score until their backs were against the wall in the ninth inning.

As soon as the Sox tied this one up, the wheels came off in the next half inning. Buehrle walked one all afternoon, and it ended up turning into a run. The third run of the game for Baltimore came as a result of back-to-back doubles from Nick Markakis and Ty Wigginton in the sixth. The Orioles added another run in the seventh on a Brian Roberts single. The score was 4-1 and the Sox were running out of time. Ramon Castro brought the Sox to within one with a two-run shot in the ninth, making it 4-3, but it was too little too late for the putrid offense.

The Sox now find themselves 63-48 on the season, a mere half game up on the Twins in the Central. The series with the Orioles wraps up tomorrow night at Camden Yards, and the Sox will look to salvage a split. Newly-acquired Edwin Jackson (7-10, 4.97 ERA) will pitch for the the Sox, and he'll oppose Baltimore's Brian Matusz (4-11, 5.26 ERA). The first pitch will be at 6:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net.

WSI's
TBGR Diary:
 The offense has been anemic for the second half of the road trip, and consequently, the Sox now find themselves in danger of a losing a series to the 37-win Orioles! Blech!!!
