3's a charm

3 days, 3 losses. will the losing ever end?! ibis guillen (that would be the wife of our crazy manager, ozzie) better have an entire closet full of clean clothes for ozzie by time he comes home from this painful roadtrip! (see here if you have no idea what im talking about)

our fat tub-o-lard bartolo colon got the call to start tonight. much like his last start, bartolo became fartolo-coughing up 3 runs over the course of 7 innings; 1 in the 2nd and 2 in the 3rd, the latter being earned. HOWEVER! tubby did get 7Ks before his time was up and the pitch count was too high. despite his 3 runs, fartolo kept the damage to a minimum. too bad i cant say the same for our other players.

unfortunately, the sox couldnt capitalize on anything. we hardly hit-podsie pan had, according to southside sox, 2/3 of the white sox hits for the whole game; we couldnt steal; and the final score was 3-0 in favor of the royals at kauffman stadium.

but thats not to say the game was completely bad! i saw on the white sox website that my boy carlos made a spectacular sliding catch to pop-out david dejesus. if only my boy was hitting homeruns, my fingers would be happily jumping over and landing on the keyboard of my laptop :D.

final game is tomorrow at 5 my time, but its on comcast chicago, so i cant see it. maybe we could finally break the slump and at least split the series! then its off to detroit to play the tigers for 2 games.
