Thome homers twice as Sox shutout Tribe

The Indians’ promising game Sunday did not carry over into Memorial Day. Their holiday was anything but fun and enjoyable as they were hammered by the White Sox 11-0 Monday afternoon. The game was rough from the start as Cliff Lee was rocked for seven runs in 2 2/3 innings. Lee gave up three bombs, including one in the first inning to Jim Thome, who had two on the day. Javier Vazquez was dominant for the ChiSox and the Indians’ anemic offense couldn’t do anything all day, which finished with only two base hits. For the Indians, when it rains, it poors. Aaron Boone, attempting to catch a foul ball near the camera bay, went head over heels and winded up banging his head and getting a mild concussion.

Jhonny Peralta is really starting to annoy me. In the first inning, he gave somewhat of a nonchalant effort towards a hard ground ball hit to him. The ball went right past him and although it would not have made a difference in the outcome of the game, the play once again emphasizes Peralta’s laziness. I’m sure he is trying but it with his body language sometimes it just doesn’t seem like he’s giving full effort on plays.

“It was one of those days,” Lee said, “where nothing went our way.”

Umm, Cliff, nothing has been going your way for awhile now, not just today. Sabathia needs to be the stopper tomorrow and get us a victory.
