Another Loss to the Damn Blue Jays

June 6 vs. Toronto


Today's Sox Crew:
Demolition Crew
The Sox first-place standing is going to come crashing down if they can't win a game in this series./font>

Short Take: Toronto isnít that good at baseball, but youíd never know it by the way they push the White Sox around.

Can we arrange to have somebody pull the fire alarm at the Toronto Blue Jaysí hotel? Maybe stuff a banana in the tailpipe of their team bus? Man, am I ever sick of looking at those guys. Get Ďem out of town already. No matter the situation, White Sox pitchers canít seem to get out Toronto hitters. And no matter the situation, White Sox hitters canít seem to hit Blue Jay pitching.

Itís been that way for awhile ó the Sox are 8-24 against Toronto dating back to 2008 ó and Wednesday nightís 4-0 loss was more of the same. The South Siders were outhit 13-2 and looked bad in the process against Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow (7-3), who struck out five and fired a complete-game shutout. Frankly, itís a miracle the Sox only lost this game by four.

I feel bad for Sox starter Jose Quintana (1-1). He really didnít pitch badly, allowing two runs on nine hits over six innings. Toronto scored its first run in the fifth inning after a lousy-ass call by first base umpire Jim Reynolds. Toronto outfielder Rajai Davis hit into a double play ... Well, at least it should have been a double play. Reynolds called Davis safe at first, and wouldnít you know it, Davis stole second and scored on a single by Colby ďBabeĒ Rasmus. Quintana made his only really bad pitch of the night in the sixth when Jose Bautista hit a solo home run off him. The rookie lefty left the mound trailing just 2-0.

Unfortunately, 2-0 would be an insurmountable deficit for the Sox on this night. The sum total of the offense was two singles by A.J. Pierzynski. The Sox catcher got his second hit of the game leading off the eighth inning. Although he was not representing the tying run, he was lifted for a pinch runner. Brent Lillibridge tried to steal second base and promptly got thrown out from here to Bangladesh. Brilliant baseball right there.

Sox reliever Hector Santiago threw some gas on the fire when he allowed a two-run homer to the light-hitting Davis in the top of the ninth. That made the score 4-0 Toronto. The Sox put a little scare into Morrow in the ninth when Alejandro De Aza and Adam Dunn both worked walks, but Dayan Viciedo fanned on a pitch out of the zone with two on and two out. It was a fitting way to end a crap game.

The Sox will try to avoid the sweep Thursday night when they send right-hander Jake Peavy (6-1, 3.05 ERA) to the mound. Heíll be opposed by right-hander Henderson Alvarez (3-5, 3.75 ERA). The game starts at 7:10 and will air on WCIU. Hereís to hoping somebody other than Pierzynski can manage a hit in the series finale.
