"Homeruns make Jerry's job easy. If the team keeps hitting like this, Jerry will soon be sitting on a block of ice. Big game on Thursday. Can Jerry's boys finish what they started? "

Short Take:  Sox offense continues to roll as they beat up on the Royals.

The Sox came into Wednesday’s game looking to guarantee a series win, ensuring that they would leave Kansas City in better position than they came in. Early on, it didn’t look like they would make that happen. However, the Sox offense came up huge to give the Sox a 15-4 blowout win over the Royals. The win moves the Sox within 2 games of the Royals. Jon Garland allowed two early runs in the 1st inning to give the Royals the first lead. In the bottom of the 2nd, Jose Valentin would begin what would be a huge night for him with a solo home run to cut the lead to 2-1. However, the Royals responded right back with 2 more runs to make it 4-1. And that is when things got interesting for the Sox. Carlos Lee lead off the 3rd with a solo home run. Three batters later, the bases were load for Paul Konerko who hit a sacrifice fly to plate one, and brought Valentin to the plate. Valentine hit his 2nd home run, this one a three run shot to give the Sox a 6-4 lead! Valentin hit his first two home runs from the left side of the plate. Garland would get 3 quick outs and in the 4th, Magglio Ordonez would hit his own solo shot as Maggs continues to amaze. Magglio went 3-3 (including a homer and a double) in this game while walking twice. He is crushing everything he sees right now and he’s certainly leading the Sox offensive charge.

Valentin would step to the bat in the 5th, this time batting from the right side of the plate. He would smash out yet another home run to give him 3 HR’s on the night including one from each side of the plate. Jose would walk in his next two at-bats and in the 9th struck out, but still reached base after the ball got away meaning Valentin reached base in all 6 plate appearances. In the 7th, Paul Konerko would get in on the long ball action by hitting a Grand Slam that Royals centerfielder Carlos Beltran almost brought back. Beltran jumped and had the ball in his glove, but dropped it as his arm hit the top of the wall. The play even confused Royals reliever (and former White Sox reliever) Sean Lowe who started to walk off the mound believing Beltran caught it to end the inning. The Sox would add one more in the 8th to win 15-4. The Sox managed to score runs in 7 consecutive innings, only being held scoreless in the 1st and 9th innings. A brilliant performance by the Sox bats.

Every Sox starter had at least 2 hits except for Frank Thomas and Roberto Alomar who were held hitless. Alomar did walk once and Frank was hit by a pitch. Alomar also contributed by making another good defensive play on a ground ball going to his left. He dove, made the catch, and spun to throw the runner out at first. With the outstanding games by Ordonez and Valentin, neither of them had the most hits for the Sox in this game. It was actually Miguel Olivo who racked up 4 hits and almost got into a scuffle with Royals catcher Mike Difelice. Difelice said something to Olivo during Olivo’s at bat in the 8th. It was quickly broken up and Olivo responded with his bat by stroking another hit. Jon Garland struggled early but settled down after the Sox offense got going. Garland allowed 4 runs in 6 innings. Newcomer Scott Schoeneweis made his debut in tonight’s game. He gave up two quick hits, but then settled down and did not allow a run to score in his inning of work. Matt Ginter and Billy Koch each pitched a perfect inning of mop-up work. The Sox go for what would be a huge sweep tomorrow at 7:05 cst with Esteban Loaiza facing Kyle Snyder. Loaiza seeks his 14th win while Snyder has just 1 win on the season.

Tinkerer Update:
  A normal lineup by Manuel and the offense continues to click. Coincidence? I think not.
