A Lost Summer?
Storyline: White Sox drop seven games below .500 with a humiliating 13-4 loss to Jays; Danks gives up six runs in the first inning, nine in all, tumbling to 0-8; and the hapless Pale Hose are now 2-5 on the road trip as they head to Boston to face the hot Red Sox for three (gulp).
It was the same old story. The offense was virtually non-existent except for a Carlos Quentin homer in the first and Ramon Castro’s two-run blast in the ninth when all was lost. We finally got rid of Tony Pena for a while (DL) and his replacement, Lucas Harrell, followed in Pena’s tradition of mediocrity, giving up four runs and nine hits in four innings. One more dubious distinction–Sox pitching allowed journeyman Corey Patterson to collect nine hits, including two homers, in the final two games of the series. Oh yeah, Adam Dunn struck out twice more and is now hitting .181.
Not much left to say except it’s already been an embarrassingly long season and it’s not even June. Kenny Williams, what’s your plan?
Danks is a symbol of White Sox futility
