WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Friday Night Massacre!

June 2nd at Detroit

Sox Office Smash Hit:
Looks like I picked a bad day to stop sniffing glue.

Short Take: No one had it and then people got injured. It was, brief, brutal, bad and over.

It's been said that the hardest thing to do is write when you really don't want to. I don't want to recap this game. I'll be absolutely stunned if you want to read about it either, but if you're in the mood for some good old fashioned pain, keep going because this game was ugly. I mean brutal, mean, nasty, pick your favorite negative adjective bad. It stunk to high heaven from the moment it started. No one seemed to have an answer for what the Tigers were doing. The Sox were down 2-0 after one, 5-0 after two and 10-1 after three. At that point they were already using their third pitcher because Derek Holland (who started) just didn't have a darn thing. He lasted 2.1 innings and the next guy didn't even record an out before leaving with an injury. By then the game was all but over and the Sox, indeed, went on to lose 15-5.

Yeah the pitching was bad. As mentioned Holland didn't make it out of the third, gave up 8 runs on 8 hits with a pair of walks and 3 homers. Michael Ynoa came on and posted a donut for outs but still managed to give up a couple of runs and hits before leaving with an injury. Yeah it was that kind of night. Heck even one of the umpires had to leave the game with an injury for an inning or so but managed to come back out and finish the game. Gregory Infante managed to pitch 1.2 innings of scoreless ball but no one else did. Juan Minaya gave up 4 and Dan Jennings gave up another one. It was just a bad night for Sox pitching all around.

Offensively the Sox just didn't have much going tonight though they did score five runs. Leury Garcia was the offensive "star" driving in 3 on a pair of hits, but none of the runs came while the game was still in doubt - not that that moment lasted very long. The Tigers were so far in front so early they let Michael Fulmer go 7 innings even though he gave up 5 runs raising his ERA to 3.0 in the process. Their bullpen finished things off, yielding a single hit but pitching to contact to keep things moving along. The game actually clocked in at a reasonable 3:01, which is good for a game with 20 runs scored.

Honestly there wasn't any drama tonight. It was over so fast people probably hadn't taken their seats before the result was assured. Well these two teams go back at it tomorrow with Miguel Gonzalez facing off against Jordan Zimmerman. Hopefully the Sox can manage to keep things interesting long enough for the fans to get their beers and take their seats.

 How's your Friday going? Me? I had to watch this entire game...
