Not Quite Perfect

April 26 vs. Boston

Humber blew everything up. There's a gigantic hole where the foundation should be.

Short Take:   Humber gives up nine runs as White Sox fall to Red Sox

Five days after pitching MLB's 21st perfect game, Philip Humber was a little less than perfect.

OK, he was a lot less than perfect.

According to Elias, Humber's nine runs allowed are the most given up by a pitcher in his first start after throwing a perfect game. It's not just THAT he gave up nine runs in five innings, it's HOW he gave them up. Humber gave up not one, not two, but three home runs. One was a grand slam to Kevin Youkilis, and the other two were a solo shot and a two-run shot to Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Humber did strike out five in his five innings of work, but it was a deficit that the White Sox could not make up. Will Ohman came on in the sixth and pitched two innings, giving up one hit. Zach Stewart came on and pitched two innings, giving up three hits and one run, as the Red Sox beat the White Sox 10-3.

The offense did what they could to close the gap. Paul Konerko doubled in Adam Dunn in the first inning to put our Sox on the board. They tacked on another run in the third when AJ Pierzynski singled to left, batting in Alexei Ramirez. In the fourth, Dayan Viciedo hit his third home run of the season, closing the gap to 7-3 at the time.

Konerko and Viciedo each had two hits, while Pierzynski, Dunn, and Alejandro De Aza each notched one. The bottom of the lineup is NOT hitting well, as Viciedo, Brent Morel and Gordon Beckham are each hitting below .200. Konerko, Pierzynski and Alex Rios are all hitting above .300, and Konerko is leading the charge with a .365 average. Dunn is hitting much better than last season and is currently sitting at a .243 average. He has yet to go without a strikeout, however.

John Danks faces Daniel Bard tomorrow night. Danks has a 2-2 record and a 5.11 ERA. He's been a bit shaky lately, but he did have a decent performance in Seattle and was enough to get the Sox the sweep.

KW Appreciates The Game:
 I did not appreciate this performance, Humber. Mark Buehrle made it to the SIXTH inning before he gave up a hit after his perfecto.

Dayan Viciedo

Two hits and a homer. Not too shabby considering the overall performance of the team.
