9/21/06 Linescore of the Day: Javier Vazquez

7 1/3 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 12 K (Loss)

Who was it that said strikeouts were undemocratic? Well, Vazquez had the heat on the ball with 12 Ks in 7 plus innings but wasted hitting oppotunities and bad fielding on the Sox’ part put Seattle on top 9-0.

Ozzie was not happy.

”Right now I feel embarrassed. My team should feel embarrassed. People are paying to watch us play and that was pathetic. ‘If we keep playing like that they better start packing today.”

With nine games left and the Sox 5 1/2 back in the wild card, better find the luggage.
