It's Not Easy Being Green

September 7 vs. Kansas City Royals


Today's Sox Crew:
Inexperienced Wallsetters
Every time the Sox offense put up a wall, it kept falling down. They really need to start hammering them in.

Short Take: The offense finally manages to hit Luis Mendoza, but the pitching was poor all-around and the Sox blow numerous opportunities with RISP as the Sox fall to the Royals for the sixth consecutive game.

The Sox began what is arguably the most important 7-game stretch of the season last night at the Cell against the Royals. It was Halfway to St. Patrick's Day, so the Sox were decked out in their home greens as the stadium celebrated all things Irish. Unfortunately, the Sox' pitching and clutch performance made the fans gag up their Irish Nachos as the Royals extended their hex on the Sox by a score of 7-5.

The first of the Untouchable Trinity, Luis Mendoza, was on the mound for the Royals, and he had an uncharacteristic night of "getting smacked around" by the Sox bats. He pitched 5.1 innings, giving up 5 runs on 10 hits, and allowing homers to A.J. Pierzynski, Dewayne Wise, and Alexei Ramirez. Unfortunately, Sox starter Francisco Liriano wasn't much better, if any...he allowed 5 runs on 6 hits in 5 innings. The Sox were an embarrassing 2-12 with RISP as well, with the most damning examples being a wasted leadoff triple by Wise and Jose Lopez popping up with two outs in the 8th and the bases loaded.

Much like Alcides Escobar earlier in the summer, another Royals slap hitter terrorized the Sox for a multi-HR game, this time the honor going to Lorenzo Cain. He had a solo shot in the fifth and the big dagger, a two-run shot in the 9th off of Addison Reed to give the Royals the win. Greg Holland came in and struck out the side to preserve the win for the Royals, who continue to make the Sox lives' miserable. The only saving grace was that the Tigers lost to the Angels in Anaheim, so the Sox' tenuous 1-game lead remains intact.

The Second of the Untouchable Trinity goes for the Royals - Mr. Bruce "Cy" Chen. Chris Sale goes to the mound to try to stop the skid vs. the Royals. Here's hoping.
