Sox Fail in Sweep Attempt

July 29 at Texas Rangers


Today's Sox Crew:
Leveling Crew
A lack of offense results in no runs scored on the evening.

Short Take:   Gavin Floyd did not have his best stuff in his 6 2/3 innings of work, having walked five, but he only gave up two runs. His offense was of no help, though.

After winning the first two in this series against the Texas Rangers, you had to figure that the Sox were due for a loss against the division-leading Rangers. Sunday would be the night for that as Scott Feldman (5-6) got the best of the Sox and their offense, scattering seven hits in eight innings of work. The Sox were shut out for the ninth time this season, this time by the score of 2-0, and handed their first loss in six games.

Texas got a pair of solo runs in the third and fifth innings. The first run of the ballgame came courtesy of an Alexei Ramirez error after a walk to Josh Hamilton and a single by David Murphy. The Rangers would add to that 1-0 lead in the fifth when Michael Young's ground out to Gavin Floyd (8-9) brought Nelson Cruz home, who'd doubled to deep left two batters earlier.

In a nutshell, the game was a dud. The Sox managed seven hits off Feldman, but having walked none, he was able to hold the Sox offense at bay all evening. Joe Nathan pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 21st save of the season.

Despite losing Sunday night's contest, the Sox maintained sole possession of first place. The South Siders will look to add to their 1 1/2-game divisional lead Monday night when they travel to Target Field to begin a three-game series with the Minnesota Twins. Jose Quintana (4-1, 2.58 ERA) will take the ball for the Sox and he'll oppose the Twins' Cole De Vries (2-2, 3.64 ERA). The first pitch will be thrown at 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WCIU.

 Well, at least we got the first two. Meanwhile, I continue perfecting my crafty GM skills.
