No Bats In for Pelfrey

May 3 at Kansas City Royals


Sox Office Smash Hit:
Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser
Like this movie, tonight's game should be swept under a rug and never seen again.

Short Take:   Sox hitters completely dormant against Nathan Karns (who?) and the Royals pen; Sox lose 6-1.

Well, that was one forgettable game.

Whatever offensive game plan the White Sox had against Royals starter Nathan Karns and the Royals bullpen should be shredded and sprinkled over tomorrow morning's oatmeal, to be eaten by the entire team and coaching staff.

Here are today's White Sox offensive numbers: 1 run, 2 hits, 1 walk, 11 strikeouts...um, yeah. It was as bad as those numbers look.

Sox starter Mike Pelfrey actually pitched a very good scoreless 5.2 innings, his longest outing of the season. However, the Royals got to him after 2 outs in the 5th inning, when a single by Whit Merrifield, double by Mike Moustakas, and triple by Lorenzo Cain scored the first runs of the game. Eric Hosmer followed up by hitting a deep fly off reliever Dan Jennings to plate another run.

But the Sox couldn't even come close to matching that inning's hit or run performance for the entire game. Melky Cabrera got the first Sox hit in the 1st inning, and then we had to wait all the way until the top of the 9th with 2 outs for the next hit – a Jose Abreu home run. At least he spoiled the shutout.

The rest of the game was pretty dull for Sox fans, unless you like to watch Karns and the Royals bullpen make Sox hitters swing at junk (mostly air, it seemed). The Sox hitters looked especially silly when they struck out 4 times in the 6th inning. Yolmer Sanchez managed to reach base on his strikeout-wild pitch combo that should have been the third out. But that went for naught as Melky followed with the fourth strikeout.

The Sox bullpen was unimpressive, with Dan Jennings giving up 2 earned runs and Chris Beck forking over another, for a final score of 6-1.

Let's hope tomorrow's day game to finish up the 4-game series goes a lot better. The Sox aim to split the series when Derek Holland faces Ian Kennedy at 1:15 pm.

 Bury the memory of this one nice and deep.
