WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

BLANKED!

July 15 at Angels


Toon Squad Update:
Sad Sack
Woefully inept Sox can't do anything right

Short Take: Bad, sad and hopeless is no way to go through life.

Thank gawd it's Friday? Not for the Sox. This game was hard to watch though they managed to keep it winnable for the first 6.5 innings due to some solid pitching by Miguel Gonzalez. However in the 7th the Sox blew a scoring chance of their own and then the Angels put the game away in decisive fashion and the Sox went on to lose 7-0.

As mentioned, Miguel Gonzalez was mostly solid for the first six innings. He gave up a couple of runs in the third on a couple of singles and a long double that Eaton managed to bobble around until the second run was assured. No error was charged though so both those runs were earned. Overall Gonzalez yielded 5 hits and a walk while striking out 6. Of the 4 runs he allowed only two were earned. The same cannot be said in the 7th, when after a leadoff double, Anderson booted a grounder on what should have been the first out of the inning allowing runners at the corners with no one out. Gonzalez was then pulled and the bullpen came in and threw a bunch of gasoline on the fire. Duke gave up a deep double to plate the first run. Albers came on and gave up three singles back to back. None of them were hard hit, but that doesn't change the fact they were successful. The third single was of the infield variety. With runners on first and third Lawrie fielded the ball behind second and flipped to Anderson who caught the ball barehanded but not in time to nab the runner from first. Anderson then turned and fired the ball low and wide to first. It got by Abreu for Tim's second error of the inning. When the dust had cleared the score was 6-0. Jennings relieved Albers and got a double play grounder that scored the final run and then after walking Trout struck out Pujols to mercifully end things in the seventh.

Offensively the Sox had a whole lot of nothing going on. They managed five hits and even had two in the same inning once but the rest were scattered around and one was immediately erased on a double play. The only excitement came with two outs in the 7th and the Sox only trailing by two. Frazier and Lawrie managed back to back singles and ended up on second and third after the Angels made some bad decisions throwing the ball in. Unfortunately Navarro promptly popped up the first pitch in foul territory to end the threat and the inning. After that came the bottom of the 7th as detailed above and after that the game was over except for going through the motions of the final 6 Sox outs.

So the opening night of the second half was a complete disaster. More of the same from the time the Sox were deep in their slump. No hitting and definitely no timely hitting. A solid starting pitching effort goes to waste and the back end of the bullpen gives up a bunch of runs to end all doubt. Hopefully it's an aberration and we'll get the chance to prove it Saturday at 8:05 Chicago time as James Shields takes the mound for our heroes. Hopefully they can return to playing the type of solid fundamental baseball they showed the final few weeks of the first half and get the team back on a winning track.

That's all folks:
A frustrating night of ineptitude by our southside boyz.
