Ba Da Bing!

(August 8)

Short take:  Don't Disrespect us!

This game couldn't have been more different than the one the day before.  For the first time this entire season, the Chicago White Sox played a game on the west coast where they scored early, often, and shutdown the opposition from start to finish.  Finally a left-coast laugher, Sox cruise15-1 over Anaheim.

Ba Da Bing!

The difference was evident from the very first pitch.  Ray Durham ripped a double on that one and the Sox were off to the races.  Sox Fans fretted when a two-on, nobody-out situation resulted in just two runs.  "Anxious" describes Sox Fans feelings after defacto ace Mark Buehrle gave one of those runs back in the bottom of the inning.  We've been down this path before.

But not tonight!

The Sox offense was hitting on all cylinders and wouldn't stop all night.  A four-run third inning was highlighted by a three-run dinger by sore-kneed Sandy Alomar, who then left the game.  The Sox were up 6-1 and would never look back.  They scored each inning starting in the fifth.  Seven Sox hitters finished with multiple-hit games.  

Hey, Ray Durham stole a base!  This is unusual!

Meanwhile starter Mark Buehrle was his usual brilliant self.  He went the full nine innings with just 99 pitches, 64 for strikes.  After that rough first inning he settled in and pitched a two-hitter the rest of the way.  His ERA is a microscopic 2.90!

So once again the Sox are at an unmentionable W-L record, looking to win tomorrow's game to achieve a certain unspeakable feat which they've failed to attain numerous previous times.

We'll leave it at that.
