More Southside agony...

So the Sox lose another one to a team just playing out the string. Thank God Cleveland lost tonight too or the lead would be down to a game. As it is, it sits at two games and now the Sox must sweep the last two against Detroit and hope that Cleveland gets swept by Tampa Bay or else the Sox will have to win at least one game in Cleveland in the year-end series.

Maybe Cleveland is feeling the pressure, too. Losing consecutive games to Kansas City and Tampa Bay is nothing to be proud of. Or, perhaps, just perhaps, they’re finally cooling off.

Any way you look at it, the Sox bats didn’t get it done tonight either. McCarthy pitched well enough to win, giving up only 3 runs in 6+ innings. But the Sox left the bases loaded multiple times – they just could never get the big hit they needed when they needed it.

I really miss Frank Thomas…
