Daily White Sox Review

April 14: Oakland 2, White Sox 1

The Good: Well, Buehrle pitched a pretty good game. He definitely battled despite not having his best stuff. Swisher got on base 4 times and scored the only Sox run as a result of great baserunning. Boone Logan continues to pitch great out of the pen, getting out of a jam in the 9th to keep the game close.

The Bad: Well, I could complain about the hitting, but the fact is that A’s rookie Greg Smith pitched a hell of a game. The Sox had no answer for his changeup, and Smith mixed his fastball in beautifully. The Sox were off-balance all night. When Smith left after 7, I hoped that the Sox would be able to get to the Oakland pen. But despite a long flyout by Swisher in the 8th and 2 runners getting stranded in the 9th, no runs crossed the plate.

Final thought: Well, the trend continues with Sox hitters not doing well against guys they haven’t seen. But it may not be the Sox this time; this Smith kid was really impressive. He also pitched well in his first start of the year, getting a no-decision despite allowing just 5 hits. Hopefully, the Sox can get a split of the two-game set tonight.
