A Kick in the Gut

May 20 vs. Dodgers


Levels Finished:

The Sox were this () close to rescuing the princess before they tripped over themselves and came crashing down to level zero.

Short Take:   Sox lose a heartbreaker to the Dodgers when Sergio Santos gives up his first earned run of the season in the bottom of the 9th inning.

All good things have to come to an end, and whether or not that happens to the earth on Saturday is yet to be known. However, we do know that Sergio Santos no longer has a 0.00 ERA. Santos was called for 9th inning duties on Friday night to close out a 3-2 Sox lead, but unfortunately Russell Mitchell had other ideas. Mitchell launched a bomb into the leftfield Sox bullpen to knot the score at 3-3, and the Dodgers went on to score three more in the tenth and eventually win the game 6-4.

The Dodgers got on the board first off Sox starter Phil Humber when Jamey Carroll doubled and then scored on Matt Kemp’s 11th homer of the season. With a 2-0 lead in the first, the Dodgers were unable to score off Humber for the rest of the game. Phil went seven innings and only gave up another three hits on the night. His curveball was crisp. He only walked one Dodgers batter on the night. He deserved the win.

The Sox offense did just enough to give the Sox a chance to win. The production happened in the bottom of the second when Alex Rios doubled and then scored on a ground rule double by ever-dependable Ramon Castro. Gordon Beckham launched a homer of his own in the following at-bat against Ted Lilly. The three runs would give the Sox the lead to the 9th inning when Santos was called in for the save. Unfortunately the Sox couldn’t put up any insurance runs, and Adam Dunn continues to struggle brutally, now 0-for-29 against lefthanders this year while batting a cumulative .196.

Ozzie felt like Santos should stay in the game in the 10th to try to have a chance at a victory, but unfortunately the wheels came flying off. After LA loaded the bases, James Loney doubled in two runs. Jay Gibbons knocked in another run before the dust settled. The Sox tried to comeback in the bottom half but only scored one. Final Score: 6-4 Dodgers.

The Sox have won nine of their last 14 and have been playing relatively decent ball. Perhaps tomorrow’s Buehrle vs. Garland game will inspire them to keep the momentum going. Go Sox
