White Sox Thu Apr 09 2009

Royal Disappointment

The White Sox wrapped up their series against the Kansas City Royals yesterday. After an impressive opening day start the White Sox dropped the next two. Royals starting pitching stymied the Sox bats only allowing one earned run through out the series. The White Sox lost 2-1 yesterday afternoon after Sox closer Bobby Jenks surrendered a two-run homer to Coco Crisp in the top of the ninth.

John Danks pitched six strong innings only giving up three hits while striking out five, but it was not enough as Danks would earn a no decision. Lack of run support from the Sox offense negated a quality start by Danks.

The White Sox drop to 1-2 on this young season. They will square off against the Minnesota Twins tonight at U.S. Cellular Field at 7:11 p.m. C.T. Jose Contreras, who was expected to miss a good portion of the '09 campaign after injuring his Achilles last season will make his debut for the Southsiders and he will be opposed by the Twins R.A. Dickey.

The Sox will welcome a familiar face back tonight as Joe Crede will return to the Cell for the first time since signing with the Twins this off season. It will be interesting to see how the fans will great the former third baseman of the future, now that he is wearing enemy colors.
