Short Take: Sox and Phils trade longballs

Although some naysayers will argue that it's an architectural nightmare, for the Chicago White Sox there's no sight they'd rather see after their disastrous West Coast road trip than good old US Cellular Field. Warm temperatures and a healthy, loud crowd of 33,000 plus make it a perfect night for baseball on Chicago's South Side, and the Sox reward the crowd with a 14-11 win over the Philadelphia Philles in their first interleague tilt of 2004.

Mark Buehrle got the start for the Sox today, and at the beginning, it looked like it would be a rough one after 3 straight gems in a row. Jimmy Rollins leads off the game with a bunt single and Bobby Abreu walks one batter later, setting the stage for Sox-killer Jim Thome to do some damage. Thome promptly obliges with a blast to right field and stakes his mates to a quick 3-0 lead. Buehrle would then surrender a double to David Bell, before inducing a groundout by Mike Lieberthal and ending the inning before it got too out of control. Not to be outdone, the Sox strike back int he bottom of the frame with one of their best one-inning outputs all year. Willie Harris continues to shine in the leadoff spot, smacking a Ryan Madsen offering for a single. Juan Uribe follows, and with that flailing, fisting swing of his blasts a 2 run home run over the left field fence. Carlos Lee follows up shortly thereafter with a longball of his own, extending his hitting streak to 23 games and knotting the game at 3-3. But the Sox aren't done with their first inning fireworks yet as Paul Konerko belts a solo shot, Ross Gload doubles, Joe Crede walks and Sandy Alomar doubles both of them home, chasing Madsen out of his first big league start with a 6-run inning.

The Phillies head to the plate in the second and come roaring right back on a Jason Michaels dinger and some timely hitting by Pat Burrell and Bobby Abreu to knot the game once again at 6-6. After that, both Buehrle and the Sox offense settled into nice grooves. Buehrle would retire 13 out of the next 14 batters he faced, and the Sox would start to pull away on a nice mixture of home runs and doubles, led by the usual suspects of Thomas, Uribe and Konerko. Buehrle would exit the game after the seventh with an apparently comfortable 13-6 lead. Mark's line on the night was 6 runs on 9 hits, 6 punchouts and 2 walks...while not as impressive as his past few outings, still numbers all us Sox fans can live with.

But alas, much like native son Rocky Balboa, the Phillies still had plenty of fight left in them. Larry Bowa's boys tally 5 more runs off Mike Jackson, who failed miserably in his longhot audition for the Sox closer's job, thanks mainly to another 3 run blast from Thome. Cliff Politte comes on and manages to nail down the save before further damage is done and the Sox skate away with a winner.

The Sox and Phillies meet again Wednesday night at US Cellular, with Jon Garland facing former Twinkie Eric Milton. First pitch is at 7:05 CDT.

Ozzieball Update:
 Sox pounded out 15 hits on the night, 13 of which went for extra bases. No need for smallball when the big boppers are boppin'.
