Poor Josh Paul. The White Sox catcher had to block ten balls in the dirt from two different pitchers in one inning. In the bottom of the third, Rocky Biddle and Jon Garland relinquished 5 Oakland tuns on 4 hits, 1 error, and a hit batsman. Josh Paul also retired the last two batters of the inning on fly balls.
The 5 Sox pitchers had a combined line of 8 innings pitched, 7 hits, 9 runs, 6 earned, 9 walks, 2 strikeouts, 2 home runs allowed, and 4 hit batesman (Miguel Tejada twice). In total they threw 167 pitches with only 88 for strikes.
