KC Barbeques the White Sox to Make it Seven in a Row

September 17th vs. the Kansas City Royals


Levels Finished:
0
The Sox fell backwards off the ladders, flattened by the Royals' barrels.

Short Take:Zach Stewart and the bullpen give up ten runs to the 1927 Yank...I mean the Kansas City Royals as the Sox go down 10-3 for their seventh loss in a row.

The Sox lost. Again. Seven in a row as they play out the last of this hollow season.

As I type this it's the bottom of the sixth inning. Will Ohman has given up three consecutive hits before getting his first out, and the Royals' lead has become 6-1. Never mind how the Royals got six runs; it's pretty clear where this game is headed so I might as well start writing.

Everett Teaford has held the Sox to one run through six innings, and that one was an out-of-character solo homer by Alex Rios. I'm sure Teaford's a fine pitcher, but holding the White Sox to one run has not been difficult to do this year. Zach Stewart was the Sox starter: five runs, all earned, eleven hits, all in six innings. Letting games get away is also something that has not been difficult for the Sox this year.

It's the seventh now. The Sox have picked up a couple of runs. Tyler Flowers singled, Brent Morel walked, and Gordon Beckham grounded to the right side to move them to second and third. A wild pitch scored Flowers and a right-side groundout by Juan Pierre scored Morel. It's 6-3 Royals, and it's time to stretch.

We stretch. We yawn. Ohman walks Mike Moustakas to lead off the inning, and he's replaced by Josh Kinney, who gives up a triple to Chris Getz. It's currently 7-3 for the Royals. The Sox do nothing in the eighth, of course, but the Royals get back-to-back singles from Melky Cabrera and Billy Butler that set the stage for a three-run homer by Jeff Francoeur. It's 10-3 for that Kansas City juggernaut and the Sox are coming up in the ninth.

Only need seven to tie!

But they don't. The game ends meekly with three gentle outs and a final score of 10-3. That's seven clunkers in a row for this listless bunch. The White Sox look more and more like Wile E. Coyote as he falls quietly to the bottom of the canyon after his jetpack roller skates flame out (soft whistle...a slight cloud of dust as he hits bottom...puf!).

I hear Joe Crede's going to be at SoxFest in January. I wonder if anybody else will be there.

Alex Rios

Solo homer early in the game. As Egon Spengler would say, short and pointless.
