Drowning in the Hudson River

June 19 vs Cubs


Today's Sox Crew:
High School Carpenters
Peavy laid the foundation, but the Sox offense didn't know how to build the frame.

Short Take:   One changeup, one error, and no offense were enough to do the Sox in against the Scrubs.

We pretty much know the stats at this point. The Sox have lost 10 of their last 14 and are 6-11 in the month of June. At 35-33, the Sox are one-half game behind the Indians for first place. We're also only 1.5 games ahead of Detroit and four games ahead of Kansas City. Back in April, I didn't know what to expect with a new coaching staff, a rookie manager, and Mark Buehrle gone. Cautiously optimistic maybe with the toxic atmosphere of Ozzie Guillen gone. Things were going well, but this month the Sox have given us that sinking feeling we're all too familiar with. It's definitely a team effort that has caused this. With no back of the rotation, Danks lost for several weeks, no situational hitting, and a spotty bullpen, is there an end in sight? Well, not on Tuesday night. Peavy pitched his rear-end off while the Sox made Cubs starter Travis Wood look like Roger Clemens (pre-HGH...I mean Vitamin B). The result was a 2-1 loss and another series loss for the Sox.

Our lone run came in the bottom of the second. Travis Wood walked Alex Rios and Tank to put two men on base. Alexei Ramirez hit a ground rule double to score Rios. Despite a third walk in the inning to Tyler Flowers, Wood retired Hudson and De Aza to end the inning.

In the top of the third, the Cubs would score a pair of runs. Geovany Soto hit a ground ball to Orlando Hudson that he promptly threw away to put Soto on base. After Tony Campana reached on an infield single, Peavy uncorked a wild pitch to put men in scoring position. That set up David DeJesus to hit a two-run single off of a high changeup from Peavy.

The Sox offered no real threat the rest of the game off of the "awesome" pitching staff of Travis Wood and the Scrubs bullpen. Wood went six innings, striking out five but walking four.

Our best chance probably came in the bottom of the eighth when Adam Dunn and Gordon Beckham were both walked by Scrubs reliever James Russell. Unfortunately, Paulie and Rios flied out and grounded out, respectively, to end the inning.

Jake Peavy pitched a great game in the hard-luck loss. Jakemeister only allowed one earned run on five hits, a walk and five strikeouts while pitching a complete game. It's a shame as it's his second straight start where he's been great and not gotten any run support to show for it.

Orlando Hudson's throwing error and 0-4 effort capped off the night. He was the final out of the game to put his average at .167. It's really too bad we have nobody else to plug in there. At this point it would be moving feces for feces anyway.

If anyone wants to watch this garbage, the final game of the series is tonight, Wednesday, June 20th at 7:10 p.m. Speaking of feces, Gavin Floyd (4-7, 5.63 ERA) will face Randy Wells (1-1, 4.50 ERA) of the Scrubs. If you dare and want to watch subpar baseball, tune in to CSN.

 "Our bad month only sets the stage for one of my awesome under the radar trades. Division Championship will be ours, I will get the cog in the machinery."
