JERRY'S HEAD

It seems our Sox play their best when they've got a point to prove.  With the season so far a major disappointment, attendance stagnant, and the players again short-changed for all-star appearances, it was the unfortunate luck of the Detroit Tigers to be standing in the road as the mighty Sox "O" came rolling through.  Six homeruns later, the Tigers are roadkill, Sox win 17-9.

Not even Todd Ritchie could blow this game.  He toted off his fifth win of the season, thanks to eight runs worth of support through six innings.  He spotted Detroit a three-run lead to start the game, but that was long-forgotten by Sox Fans watching the fireworks.  They didn't have to wait long.

As leadoff man Ken Lofton goes, so too usually go the Sox.  His dinger to start the game was followed three hitters later by a duplicate effort by Magglio Ordonez.  In spite of the finest of Chicago-style voting, the South Side hero still finished far behind several slugs for the final roster spot on the American League's all-star team.  He wasn't yet done making his presence known throughout the baseball world this evening.

Jose Valentin started the second inning with a dinger to tie the game, but Ritchie kicked the game back to Detroit serving an rbi single in the top of the third.  Finally in the fourth, Sox bats erupted.  The first of two Sandy Alomar dingers got things started.  Ray Durham's rbi double scored two.  Durham himself came home on a stolen base and wild throw.  Todd Ritchie had a lead even he couldn't lose.

The Sox added two more runs in the seventh and exploded for seven runs in the eighth.  The key blow came from non all-star Ordonez, a grand slam to make it 15-5.

Bob Howry had no clue what he was doing in relief in the ninth.  He served up three homeruns permitting Detroit to save some face in this game.  Jerry Manuel had two pitchers warming up in the bullpen even though the Sox had a twelve run lead entering the last frame.

Whatever.  He finally figure it out.  Sox look to get back to .500 Wednesday evening at Comiskey.

Magglio Ordonez

2 for 3, plus two walks.  Two homeruns including a grand slam, and five rbi's.  Not that this is good enough to be an all-star or anything.
