A Diamond in the Suck

September 4 vs Minnesota


Today's Sox Crew:
Plumbers
Sox pitching sprung a leak and feces went everywhere.

Short Take:   Can't sugarcoat this one. Sox got their rear-ends handed to them.

Well, it started ok off of Twins starter Scott Diamond on Tuesday night. RBI's from Konerko, Rios and Viciedo put the Sox up 3-0 in the first inning. Then, Jose Quintana, along the rest of the Sox pitching staff, forgot to tell the fans that they were going to have absolutely nothing. In fact, I'm curious if they would've done better pitching underhanded. But really, who cares? Minnesota scored seven in the second and ten in the fifth to destroy the Sox 18-9.

The Sox looked good when they got out to that 3-0 lead. Then Quintana would give it all back, and then some in the top of the second. Jose allowed singles to Josh Willingham and Justin Morneu before walking Chris Parmalee and Trevor Plouffe. That started a domino effect and before you know it, Minnesota scored five times. Quintana was pulled for Dylan Axelrod. Axelrod allowed and RBI single and a sacrifice fly to Josh Willingham before the damage finally ended. The Twins were up 7-3 at that point with all seven runs charged to Quintana after only lasting 1.1 innings.

Alexei Ramirez got the Sox back within three with a double to score Dayan Viciedo to make it a 7-4 game in the fourth. Then wheels really came off the bus in the fifth.

Axelrod allowed the dreaded leadoff walk to Justin Morneau to open the fifth. Leyson Septimo came in for one batter before then handing the ball to Phil Humber. Humber should've just stayed home on this night. He came in and allowed a triple to Trevor Plouffe. Philip then allowed five more hits before Chris Parmalee took him yard for a three-run homer to put Minnesota up 17-4. Humber allowed seven hits, eight earned runs, and is only credited with 0.1 innings of work. The Twins would plate ten runs total in the inning.

Down 18-4 in the eighth, the Sox did mount a little rally. Dan Johnson, DeWayne Wise, Ray Olmedo, and Tyler Flowers hit four consecutive doubles. Alejandro DeAza would add a fifth double in the inning as the Sox scored four times to make it 18-8.

DeWayne Wise then pitched the top of the ninth and allowed no runs! We should've used him in place of Humber.

Wise then doubled to score Dan Johnson in the bottom of the ninth as the game ended 18-9.

We can now forget this garbage. The Sox play a day game on Wednesday, September 5th. PJ Walters for Minnesota will face Jake Peavy. We need to win this and salvage a series win after last night's garbage fest. The game starts at 1:10 p.m. and can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.
