Dead Team Walking

July 24 vs. Detroit


Today's Game Rating:
0 STARS
64 games left in the season.

Short Take: John Danks serves up a few long balls, and the Sox continue their descent into oblivion with another loss to Detroit.

I had a feeling it was going to be a rough season for John Danks. The first year back from arm surgery is normally a struggle for any pitcher. The White Sox left-handed has had it as rough as anybody as he has seen his pitches fly out of the ballpark at an alarming rate this summer.

Danks served up three more long balls during Wednesday night's 6-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers. He has now allowed a whopping 17 home runs in just 76.2 innings pitched this season.

It didn't take long for this one to get out of hand. With two men on and one out in the top of the first inning, Detroit first baseman Prince Fielder found a low fastball from Danks to his liking and knocked it into the right field seats. The Sox were trailing 3-0 before they even had a chance to bat.

The Tigers' Austin Jackson added a solo home run in the second inning. Noted Sox killer Torii Hunter homered in the fifth. Alex Avila's RBI single in the sixth inning gave the Tigers an insurmountable 6-0 lead.

Danks (2-8) went seven innings, allowing six runs - all earned - on 11 hits. Tough night.

The Sox offense also had 11 hits in this game, but none of them came in the clutch. The South Siders went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10 baserunners on the night. Alexei Ramirez had an RBI single in the seventh inning. Dayan Viciedo hit the obligatory meaningless solo home run in the bottom of the ninth to account for the 6-2 final.

The Sox have dropped the first three games of this series and will try to salvage the finale Thursday afternoon. Jake Peavy (7-4, 4.149 ERA) gets the start for the South Siders. No doubt dozens of scouts will be in attendance to get a look at Peavy, who is likely to be traded to a contending team sometime in the next week. Detroit will start right-hander Justin Verlander (10-7, 3.69 ERA). Game time is 1:10. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

Hawk and Stoney's Thumb Guide:
I tell you what, Stone Pony, there's gonna be a lot of fannies in those scout seats tomorrow. Maybe we'll trade Jake Peavy to Boston and he can meet YAZ!
