Not Ready for Prime Time

July 18 at Boston


Today's Sox Crew:
Unskilled labor
The roof caved in on the Sox due to some faulty craftsmanship by an inexperienced laborer.

Short Take: Boston roughs up rookie pitcher Pedro Hernandez, who was making his first career start.

Well, at least there was nothing heartbreaking about this one. The outcome was decided by the fourth inning. The White Sox called up rookie left-hander Pedro Hernandez to make his first career start in Boston. The 23-year-old youngster probably won't be getting a second start anytime soon after he was shelled by the Red Sox in a 10-1 loss Wednesday night.

Hernandez lasted four-plus innings. He allowed eight runs on 12 hits, including three home runs. The roof caved in the third inning. With the score tied 1-1, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford hit back-to-back singles to put Hernandez on the ropes. Next, Cody Ross found a fastball on the inner half to his liking and parked one over the Green Monster to put Boston up 4-1.

Things only worsened in the fourth. Once again Ross was the culprit. He stepped to the plate with two on and two out. This time, he got a high changeup from Hernandez and once again knocked one out of the yard for another three-run homer. Adrian Gonzalez followed immediately with a solo home run to make it 8-1 Boston. Game, set, match. The Red Sox added two more in the sixth off reliever Hector Santiago to account for the final margin.

Sox hitters had no answer for Boston lefty Felix Doubront (10-4), who allowed a run on four hits over six innings. The Sox only run came in the first on a two-out RBI single by Paul Konerko. Boston pitchers retired the final 10 hitters they faced, and Sox hitters did not have a single hit after the second inning. It was a listless performance in all areas.

The loss drops the Sox to 3-3 on this 10-game roadtrip. There is one more game left in Boston and that will come at 6:10 Thursday night. Lefty Jose Quintana (4-1, 2.60 ERA) will pitch for the Sox. He'll be opposed by right-hander Clay Buchholz (8-3, 5.54 ERA). You can watch all the action on Comcast SportsNet.
