What A Terrible Night... And Week For That Matter

Yet again some crazy stuff goes down and the Sox lose their 14th of 16 in the Unhappiest Place on Earth.

The 9 hitter, who came into the game hitting .171 strokes an RBI double to give them the lead in the 2nd and then a bloop single to give them another lead in the 6th. Carlos Quentin hits his first homerun since coming off the DL only to get hurt doing so. Jessie Crane who's ERA is well over 7 comes in and throws 2 inning ending double plays including one that may put Alexei Ramirez out for an extended period of time. And last buy certainly not least, a man who has been a member of the White Sox for just over 24 hours lines out to end the game on a ball that could not have been hit any harder, welcome to the TwinkieDome as a White Sox Mark Kotsay.

It's just gotten to a point that it's not even fathomable anymore. Much like Mark Buehrle going 45 straight hitters without giving up a hit, you just can't believe it is happening. A team that consistently has more talent on the field, and usually a better record when they enter the stadium gets torched night in a night out in games that are almost always decided by one, two, or three runs. 2 wins in the last 16 games there. TWO. It's unbelievable. But it's true. And it's not going to get any better.

I wrote before this series that the Sox had the best chance they have had in a while to go up there and win. The matchups were good, the injury situation was good, the makeup of the teams was good, and the Sox lose 3 games in a row. Absolutely ridiculous.

The Sox walked into the TwinkieDome in 2nd place. Trailing the Tigers by 2 games leading the Twins by 2 games. They leave with only one thing on their mind. Only 3 more games EVER in this god forsaken, devil's creation the Twins call home.
