Another Day, Another One-Run Fizzle

September 26 vs. the New York Yankees


Sox Project Update:
Lousy Fasteners
It's no good to start building something if it won't stay assembled.

Short Take: The Sox came out of the gate with three hits and a run in the first, but stopped there, losing to the Yankees 2-1 in the Bronx.

Today's White Sox game reminded me of a guy I knew. I was involved in a volunteer group and we needed a project to be done. This guy with gusto announced, "I'll do it!" He began with a flourish, setting up early pieces and explaining his plan. Time passed, and we realized we hadn't seen any progress. We tried to reach him, but couldn't seem to shake him loose. The project fizzled like a dying sparkler and we were left to pick up and start over with somebody else.

Today the Sox lost to the Yankees 2-1 in New York as they followed the same course as the hapless guy I once knew. They faced New Yawk righthander Adam Warren, whom no one would confuse with Whitey Ford. Adam Eaton led off with a single in the first inning and stole second. Jose Abreu followed with a single that scored Eaton, and the Sox were up 1-0 before the first out was recorded. Trayce Thompson also got a hit, though no other runs scored.

Hey! Three hits in the first and a 1-0 lead. We've got the popcorn machine going now, huh?

Not so fast. The Sox were missing in action for the rest of the game, just like the no-followup character I used to know. Those three hits and that one run were the sum total of the Sox' offense against a who's-he pitcher with a 6-7 record. It's tough to win games only scoring one run, but you already know that. The Sox have proven that many times this season.

John Danks started for our guys and didn't do badly, going six innings with five strikeouts. He gave up two runs to the Steinbrenner Country Club in the sixth on successive ground-rule doubles to Chase Headley and Alex Rodriguez. Two runs like that should not be enough to cost a game, but if you only score one, two is more than enough.

The Yankees, as is their annoying custom, are probably going to the playoffs, though they haven't been the usual runaway championship train in recent years. The Sox should've won this game (but you've already heard that before, too). Warren walked three Sox hitters in the fifth, but nobody could drive them home. Maybe call Uber next time -- the Sox hitters don't seem to be able to do it.

Well, it's almost over. I've gotten SoxFest e-mail ads already. I'm guessing SoxFest is going to be a little like the Jerry Springer show after this bustertruck of a season, so it might at least be entertaining. Maybe I'll track down that guy who never finished his project and suggest he apply for Rick Hahn's job.
