The White Sox's pitching costs them another game they easily could have won. If the Sox don't make a serious run at the World Series this year it will most likely be because of their pitching, as the bats have been showing up day in and day out, pretty much since the beginning of the season.
In an ugly 9-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday night at the Cell, the no longer perfect-gamer, Phil Humber, baffled many by continuing to make amateur mistakes such as throwing curve balls right over the plate to left handed hitters that were down in the count 0-2 and 1-2, only to see them virtually rip the cover off the ball. He also continually got behind in counts with runners on base.
Rasmus of the Blue Jays capatilized on the Sox's disgraceful pitching, grabbing 5 hits for the night.
As lowsy as the pitching was, the Good Guys bats are still hot and that's something to be optomistic about. The Sox managed to put up 5 runs with 2 of the top hitters on the team, A.J. Pierzynski and Adam Dunn, slugging some dingers.
Chicks might dig the long ball, but on the South Side they will settle for some decent pitching about now.
