WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

One and Dunn

July 3 at Cubs


Levels Finished:
1
Offense sucked for the second day in a row and only scored when a fireball ran out of gas.

Short Take: Gavin Floyd was a bum and didn't pitch a shutout as the Scrubs managed to take the finale of the crosstown series 3-1.

When I saw today's lineup and noticed two things, Dunn was batting third, and Konerko wasn't in the starting lineup, I knew we could be in for a long game. Unfortunately, that held true. The Sox offense is back to its old non-hitting ways as they've scored only two runs over their last 18 innings. It's the kind of stat that is all too familiar. There's plenty of blame to go around for the offensive ineptitude, but I'm going to once again single out Adam Dunn. Following Sunday's 0-4 performance, Dunn is now batting .165 to go with 7 homers, 29 RBI's, a .301 OBP, .302 SLG, and 104 strikeouts in 242 at-bats. Those numbers to me are mind boggling. I'll keep my opinions of our coaching staff to myself at this time, but something needs to be done when you have an MLB manager who puts someone hitting that bad in the third spot. Let's hope this is "one and Dunn" in the three hole for Adam Dunn.

Today, Gavin Floyd (6-8) gave up three earned runs which was more than enough for the Scrubs. Floyd did not have his best stuff today. His curveball did not have its usual bite and he did not have faith in his changeup. However, he battled and the final stat line was pretty good. He went seven innings allowing seven hits, three earned runs, a walk and eight strikeouts to take the loss. The travesty is the Sox only got 2 hits...TWO HITS in seven innings off journeyman pitcher Rodrigo Lopez. We should be hitting bombs onto Waveland, but instead it's this week pop out and ground out garbage that helped the Scrubs win 3-1 on Sunday.

All of the damage from the north siders came in the bottom of the fourth. Darwin Barney singled open the inning. Starlin Castro then tripled on a hanging curve ball from Floyd. Next batter Aramis Ramirez reached out and hit a decent pitch from Floyd out of the park to make it 3-0.

After Lopez exited for the Scrubs, simulated innings leader and simulated games all-time wins leader Kerry Wood came in to pitch the eighth for the north side. Mark Teahen and Gordon Beckham both singled to put men on first and third for the Sox. Wood then uncorked a wild pitch allowing Teahen to score to make it 3-1. Sean Marshall and Carlos Marmol would take over for Wood from there. Marshall retired Juan Pierre before Marmol came in to strike out Alexei Ramirez to end the threat. Marmol would pitch a scoreless ninth for the save.

Enough of this garbage. What's on tap next for the Sox do you ask??? Starting Monday, July 4th, we have seven in a row at home. Kansas City comes in for three before a huge four-game series against the Minnesota Twins leading up to the All-Star break. Gotta' score some runs boys or it won't be pretty...especially against division foes.

Tomorrow, Independence Day, Mark Buehrle (6-5, 3.65 ERA) will face off against Jeff Francis (3-9, 4.79 ERA) for KC. The game is at 6:10 p.m. and can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.

WSI's
Ozzio's Game Rant:
"I tell Adam Dunn I'll buy the next few rounds through the buffet line if he can bat my weight. At .165 he just needs to go up a little before tomorrow's donuts are on me."
