Unearned Runs

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Those unearned runs always seem to come back to haunt you as the White Sox dropped a 3-2 decision to the Angels tonight despite ninth-inning fireworks from Paul Konerko, who homered for the 14th time.

Konerko, who was the first Sox player to enter May as MLB’s top home run hitter since Zeke Bonura in 1935, still tops the major leagues in home runs.

The result spoiled another good pitching outing by John Danks, whose only earned runs allowed came on a two-run home run to Torii Hunter.

“It’s a shame,” Ozzie Guillen said after the game.  “When you think you should win, you’re better than you are, it’s hard.”

Guillen pointed to missed scoring opportunities early in the game that came back to haunt the White Sox later in the game after a miscue by third baseman Jayson Nix.

“I’m never going to criticize a player for an error,” the manager said.

“I just walked 125 steps from the clubhouse to here to tell you guys nothing … nothing I haven’t said before.”

We had the Flubs game on in the office today – nice to see Jose Contreras who is CLOSER for the Phillies stick it to the Flubs today. Jose looked good. Nice to see him doing well. I understand he is scoreless is something like his last 13 outings. Good for you Jose!
