Danks Falls To 0-6 On The Season

Though it seemed an opportune time for John Danks to snag his first win of the season — coming off a decent start at Minnesota, with the team on an offensive roll — it was not to be on Tuesday night as his poor start cost the White Sox yet another game in the 2011 season.

Danks has been up and down all year, often having the misfortune of being up when the team as a whole has been down, but the loss on Tuesday was all on him. His line on the night read six earned runs on ten hits in just five innings pitched. He struck out four and walked two. Danks got into trouble early, giving up three runs in the bottom of the first inning as the Angels put together a string of singles. He would give up more runs later in the game on a Macier Izturis home run and RBI hits by Alberto Callaspo and Howie Kendrick.

Meanwhile, the resurgent Sox offense was largely silenced by Joel Pineiro, who threw 7.2 innings and gave up just two runs on eight hits, while striking out five. The only offense came from a Paul Konerko home run and an Adam Dunn RBI double.

The Sox will try to close out the series on a high note on Wednesday night. First pitch will be at 9:05 P.M., CDT.
