Not Worth Staying Up For

May 16 at L.A. Angels


Today's Sox Crew:
Hitchhikers
The Sox looked like they had walked to the West Coast. They got nothing done on their house Wednesday.

Short Take: The White Sox looked a little sleepy on the West Coast as they absorbed a 7-2 pounding at the hands of the Angels.

If you went to bed before the conclusion of Wednesday's late night affair, I'd say you made the right choice. You missed very little. The White Sox traveled to the West Coast and sleepwalked through a boring 7-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (or whatever the hell they call themselves.)

So much for that good starting pitching, eh? For the third consecutive game, a White Sox starter absorbed a vicious pounding. This time, it was Gavin Floyd's turn to get hit around as he allowed seven runs on 10 hits over six innings. Just in case you were wondering, Sox starters have an 11.30 ERA over those last three games. That won't cut it.

Believe it or not, the Sox actually had a brief 2-1 lead in this one. Dayan Viciedo hit his fifth home run of the season, a solo shot, and Gordon Beckham doubled home Alejandro De Aza on a hit-and-run play as the South Siders plated two runs in the top of the third inning.

That lead lasted for, oh, about five minutes. Floyd (3-4) needed only three batters to hand the game right back to the Angels. Back-to-back singles were followed by a three-run homer off the bat of Albert Pujols, who had been struggling mightily before Floyd threw him a meatball in the bottom of the third inning. 4-2 Angels. The game was over at that point for all intents and purposes as Sox hitters could not solve journeyman right-hander Jerome Williams (4-1), who worked eight innings of two-run ball to get the win.

For good measure, the Angels tacked on three more in the sixth. The rally was capped off by a two-run homer by Vernon Wells. Notice how other teams tend to hit home runs with men on base, while most of the Sox home runs are solo shots. Maybe we can work on that.

In any case, the Sox will try to split this brief two-game series with a matinee on Thursday afternoon. It will be a battle of left-handers as Chris Sale (3-2, 3.08 ERA) will go for the South Siders. He will be opposed by C.J. Wilson (4-3, 3.42 ERA). Game time is 2:35, and you can watch on Comcast SportsNet

What the **** is going on with this stupid scheduling? All the way out to the West Coast for only two games? ****.
