Pre-Game Report

Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

Wow!  This is the sort of baseball game that can restore a Sox Fans faith in the future!  Joe Crede entered the ninth inning hitless in three attempts.  Before the game ended, he had a career night and delivered the Sox their most exciting victory of the season.  A walk-off grand slam in the tenth inning by the rookie thirdbasemen lifts the Sox to an 8-4 comeback victory over Toronto.

Yeah, and our money is worth more than theirs, too!

Most of the 12,000+ fans at Comiskey were there to see a pitching duel between the two staff aces, Mark Buehrle and Roy Halladay.  It was anything but that early on.  Buehrle was pounded for three runs in the first inning and got tagged for a solo shot homer in the second.  Halladay gave up a walk, a wild pitch, and became the victim of an unearned run from a fielding error.  The score was 4-2 after two innings.

Then Buehrle settled down.  He would allow just two measly hits the next seven innings.  Still the Sox offense could do nothing with Halladay through eight innings and the Sox trailed by two runs entering the ninth inning.

Crede Time!

Let's give some credit to Aaron Rowand.  God bless the young man.  He took one for the team to let an inside pitch graze his dusty jersey, kicking up an obvious cloud of dirt and a free pass to first base.  He came home ahead of Joe Crede who next  pounded a 1-1 pitch just beyond the wall in the left-center field to tie the game!

The rally sputtered and the game went to extra innings, but Crede wasn't done. 

In the glorious tenth, Magglio Ordonez managed a leadoff single and Carlos Lee drew a walk.  In the key at-bat, Royce Clayton laid down a perfect bunt to advance both runners.  With first base open, Rowand got a free pass to load the bases. 

Crede Time Again!

If his earlier homer was lucky to reach the seats, there was no doubt about this one.  Crede roped one deep into the Sox' left field bullpen, left fielder Shannon Stewart didn't even pretend to try catching.  He just trotted in towards the dugout.

Bedlam at homeplate.  Pie in the face in the dugout.  All this team's problems momentarily forgotten.  Sox baseball can be a beautiful thing.

Joe Crede

2 for 5, both of them dingers, the second one a walk-off grand slam, batting in seven of the eight Sox runs, including the tying and winning runs.  He did it all, including selling churros on the main concourse between innings.
