RAYS 6, WHITE SOX 4
Well so much for those first playoff jitters as the Rays got off to a great start in this one, the scoring started in the bottom of the 2nd Inning when Evan Longoria just crushed a ball over Javy Vasquez giving the Rays a 1-0 lead. The Sox responded in the top of the 3rd inning when Dewayne Wise hit a 3-run shot to give the Sox a 3-1 lead.
Then thats when the wheels started falling off for Javy as he ONCE AGAIN COULDN’T LAST MORE THAN 4.1 INNINGS giving up a 2nd home run to Evan Longoria which tied the game but 2 more runs after that which made it a 4-3 game.
After that Clayton Richard came up and did pretty good until he gave up 2 more runs in the 8th to make it a 6-3 game. In the 9th Paul Konerko hit a meaningless Home run to cut it to a 6-4 lead but the Rays get the next 3 outs very easily and win it 6-4.
TURNING POINT: The turning point in this game was back in the 7th inning when the White Sox had bases loaded with 1 out. Juan Uribe strikes out(NOT SHOCKING AT ALL)then Mr.RBI Orlando Cabrera comes up with bases still loaded and after one pitch starts talking **** to Rays reliever Grant Balfour. They stare each other down for about 2 mins. then Balfour strikes OC out while sharing a few choice words while he leaves the mound to end the inning.
Well good news is its only Game 1, and tommrow one of our aces Mark Buehrle takes the mound against Scott Kazmir. Thats really the only bright spot right now as the Sox continue to prove to people that they are only a Home Run hitting team and cant manufacture runs. But still Game 1.
WHITE SOX REAL TALK….PEACE
TWINS 9, WHITE SOX 3
WELCOME TO HELL WHITE SOX:
“That wasn’t a loss that was a ****** *** whoopin” those were the words of White Sox Manger Ozzie Guillen after a very painful 9-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night. Let me explain why he is 100% right with those comments. The game started off pretty well for the White Sox as they scored first and took the early lead but too bad for us that it only lasted 1.5 OF AN INNING. As Javier Vasquez ONCE AGAIN proved his naysayers right by giving up 5 RUNS IN 4 INNINGS OF WORK. To make things worse he just got MURDERED BY THIS GUY:
Jason Kubel was like god to us last night he just beat our *** it all started when Javi punked out and walked Justin Morneau ON 4 STRAIGHT BALLS BECAUSE HE WAS SCARED!!!. So you have a man on first now with 0 Outs so what happens???? KUBEL STRIKES WITH A 2-RUN SHOT and the Twins never looked back as they went on to destroy us 9-3 the Sox pitching Staff gave up 9 RUNS, 3 OF THEM WERE LONG BALLS. 1 HR for Delmon Young and 2 HR FOR JASON KUBEL OF ALL PEOPLE. He always kills us EVERYTIME we play the Twins. The only Bright Spot for the Sox is when Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 610th HR, it was meaningless as far as the game went but he made history by passing up Sammy Sosa at #5 all-time HRs.
So after that loss the White Sox see their lead in the Division slip to 1.5 games now and their Magic Number stays at 5. I was truly DISGUSTED with the Sox efforts. They’re playing like they’re waiting to lose instead of playing to win and it made me think of if this team blows it and dosent make the playoffs IT WILL BE THE SICKEST FEELING I’VE FELT WATCHING SPORTS SINCE THE BEARS LOST THE ’06 SUPER BOWL. But we still have a chance to win tonight re-gain our 2.5 game lead in the Central and still return home with the lead but we are going to need a SOLID performance from Mark Buehrle
The game will be on Comcast Sporstnet at 7pm fortunatly for me I’ll be in class and will miss majority of the game so i wont have to see a collapse. I’ve found it generally when i dont see a game they win, So hopefully that happens tonight.
AW YEA IF ANYBODY SEE’S THIS GUY:
TELL HIM THERE’S A SERIES GOING ON IN MINNESOTA AND WE WOULD LIKE IT IF HE SHOWED UP TO THE GAME….THANKS
