Ubaldo = Sox El Crappo

September 11th vs Cleveland


Levels Finished:
1
Sox came close before barrels knocked Matt Thornton and the Sox on their keyster.

Short Take:   Just another Sunday swoon for the Sox as neither pitching or hitting were good in losing 7-3 to the Indians.

Ubaldo Jimenez has been less than spectacular this season, especially since coming over to Cleveland from the Rockies in July. However, it didn't matter Sunday against the Sox. Despite issuing five walks through six innings, Jimenez ran his record to 3-2 after only allowing two runs on three hits. Three Cleveland relievers held the Sox anemic offense at bay over the final three innings to take out the Sox 7-3 on Sunday afternoon.

Not much to say here. Zach Stewart (2-4) started for the Sox and pitched so-so. He scattered seven hits over five innings and gave up three earned runs to take the loss. If not for a shaky second inning, Stewart's numbers would've looked better.

The scoring for the Indians started early. With two on, Trevor Crowe singled to score Lonnie Chisenhall. Lou Marson then doubled in Crowe and Luis Valbuena to make the score 3-0 Indians

The Sox would make it close in the bottom of the third. Sox spark plug, Alejandro De Aza, singled to open the inning. He then proceeded to steal both second and third. I like it! Gordon Beckham finally did something useful with the bat when he hit into a fielder's choice to score De Aza to make it 3-1. After a Juan Pierre single, Beckham would also score on a fielder's choice by Alexei Ramirez. With the score 3-2, the Sox would not get any closer.

Will Ohman relieved Stewart on the top of the sixth and greeted us by allowing a solo homer to Luis Valbuena.

With the score 4-2, it was Matt Thornton's turn to suck in the top of the eighth. I mean he really blew. Thornton allowed four hits, a walk, and three earned runs in the inning. It was highlighted by a run scoring single by Jason Donald and a two-run double by Carlos Santana. If that didn't let wind out of the Sox sails for the day, I don't know what did.

We would get one back in the bottom of the ninth. De Aza once again showed his offensive prowess by hitting a ground rule double. He'd score on a single by Juan Pierre to put the score at 7-3, but that's the way it would end. We only have a handful of games left, please play De Aza all the time instead of some of the the other horse poop choices we have.

After getting a weekend split with Cleveland the Sox are 73-72. With only 17 games left and 10.5 games behind Detroit, the Sox organization and fans are just waiting for this disappointing season to end. Can they make it over .500 or finish at .500? At this point, who cares? I'm optimistic that in 2012 some corrective measures within the organization will be done, but like many, I'm not holding my breath.

The Sox continue tomorrow, September 12th, at home against first place Detroit at 7:10 p.m. There was a time when this series might have meant something, but now it's just what could've been.
