WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Offensively Offensive

August 12 vs. Minnesota


Immunity:
Bullpen
Exiled:
Alex Rios, Paul Konerko, Carlos Quentin

The only person who played very well was AJ Pierzynski, but the bullpen didn't allow any more runs to score. Rios, Konerko, and Quentin are supposed to be the big RBI guys, but when the bases were loaded, they couldn't come through.

Short Take:   Sox leave the bases loaded three times, fail to score more than one measly run

The White Sox entered tonight's game against the Twins in a tie for first in the AL Central. Looking to head into a weekend series with Detroit with a one-game lead, the Sox sent Gavin Floyd to the mound to take on Francisco Liriano. Unfortunately, the Sox were unable to get that lead, losing to the Twins by a score of 6-1.

The Twins got on the board in the first on a solo home run from Orlando Hudson. However, the Sox countered with a run in the bottom of the inning. With two outs, Alex Rios singled, Paul Konerko walked, and Carlos Quentin was hit by a pitch. AJ Pierzynski came up to bat and hit a single, scoring Rios. How that happened still boggles my mind. Dayan Viciedo came up, and it looked like he was going to get his first walk. But with a 3-1 count, he blasted a ball to deep center field. Unfortunately it wasn't far enough, as Denard Span made the inning-ending catch.

The Twins scored another run in the second inning. Floyd gave up a single to Michael Cuddyer, who stole second during Jim Thome's at-bat. Cuddyer advanced to second on what was deemed a throwing error on Pierzynski. He threw to second to try and nail Cuddyer, but Alexei Ramirez apparently wasn't paying attention and was nowhere near the bag. Thome hit a sac fly to right, scoring Cuddyer. In the third, the Twins scored yet again. Hudson singled to second, and Joe Mauer singled to center. Floyd threw a wild pitch to Kubel, who eventually struck out swinging. During Cuddyer's at-bat, Floyd balked, allowing Hudson to score, before Cuddyer flied out to center.

The Sox had another chance to score in the fifth, but they failed to do so. Liriano walked Gordon Beckham to lead off the inning. Juan Pierre singled to left, and on a beautiful bunt, Alexei Ramirez singled to third, loading the bases. Rios grounded into a force out before Konerko and Quentin both struck out swinging. Another bases loaded opportunity, nothing. Again in the sixth, the Sox had a chance to score runs but didn't. Pierzynski led off the inning with a single. After Viciedo popped out to short, Omar Vizquel doubled to left, moving Pierzynski to third. Liriano hit Beckham with a pitch, loading the bases. The Sox offense failed again when Pierre lined out to center. Matt Guerrier came in to replace Liriano, and with the bases loaded, Ramirez popped out to short to end yet another bases loaded threat.

Floyd tacked on three more earned runs in the seventh. Alexi Casilla doubled to lead off the inning. After Span and Hudson struck out, Floyd intentionally walked Mauer. And on an 0-2 pitch, Jason Kubel hit a three-run home run. Ozzie pulled Floyd for Chris Sale who got Cuddyer to fly out to center.

After a 1-2-3 eighth inning for Sale, Ozzie brought in Bobby Jenks. Casilla popped out to second, but Jenks gave up a single to Span and walked Hudson before he started having back spasms. Ozzie pulled him, and Scott Linebrink got Mauer to ground out and Kubel to fly out to end the threat. The Sox had nothing to offer in the bottom of the ninth and lost the game, leaving twelve men (TWELVE MEN!!!!) on base.

Detroit comes to town for the weekend, and the Sox look to get back to their winning ways. Mark Buehrle takes on Jeremy Bonderman on WCIU at 7:10.

TBGR Diary:
 This game made me want to vomit on myself. This was horrible. I can't even put into words how bad this was. The bases were loaded three times in this game. THREE TIMES. But they can't score more than ONE run? Disgusting.
