Sox Comeback Falls Short

May 11th vs. Minnesota Twins


Sox Office Smash Hit:
A Hole In One
Four Runs In The First Is Not A Good Way To Start

Short Take: † Sox rally from an early deficit but wasted opportunies ultimately win out

The Sox looked to split their rain-shortened two-game series against the Minnesota Twins Thursday evening with Derek Holland on the mound versus Phil Hughes for the Twins. Holland wasnít quite as sharp as he has been so far this season but a first-inning error leading to four unearned runs started digging a hole that proved too deep for the Sox to climb out of, losing 7-6 and getting swept in their last two series.

After striking out the gameís first batter, Holland surrendered two consecutive walks but induced a grounder to short that should have gotten him out of the inning. Unfortunately Jose Abreu dropped the throw to first, spoiling the double-play and leaving two on with two out. Joe Mauer would single in one of those runners but the big blow was a 3-run homer off the bat of Eduardo Escobar that gave the Twins an early 4-0 lead. Holland gave up two more runs off solo shots in the top of the second to give the Twins a 6-0 lead after two.

If this were the past few seasons I would have probably written off this game and moved onto something more productive for my Thursday night, expecting the Sox players to look as bored as I am for the next 7 innings. While still early in the season this team doesnít seem to have as much sleepwalk in them and that boredom never materialized. It did however teeter on boredom, with the Sox bats very quiet for the first few innings and drawing only two walks until the bottom of the fourth when Avi Garcia doubled to left. The Sox would ultimately collect two runs that inning to cut the Twins lead to 4.

The Twins added a run in the top of the fifth off an Eduardo Escobar double that scored to Miguel Sano, himself reaching first off the dreaded leadoff walk. The Sox answered with three in their half of the fifth with a 3-run home run off the bat of Melky Cabrera, knocking Phil Hughes out of the game. The Sox got within one run in the bottom of the sixth off a Matt Davidson solo shot to deep left and had a chance to complete the comeback with 1 out and runners on second and third in the bottom of the eighth, but unfortunately couldnít seal the deal.
