Short Take:Sox lumber put up double digits again, more than enough for Buehrle as Sox re-take first place in AL Central.

Mark Buehrle was on his game, and the White Sox put double-digit runs on the board for the 12th time this season as they took the rubber game of the series 10-3 this afternoon against the Atlanta Braves. Buehrle was strong, going 8 solid innings for his 7th victory of the season. He faced the minimum thru 3 innings, and was staked to a 4-0 lead after two innings. The Sox would never look back from there.

In the bottom of the first, Frank Thomas unloaded with a solo home run, his 16th of the season, to put the Sox up 1-0. The next batter up, Carlos Lee, doubled to extend his personal hitting streak to 27 games, tying a Sox record held by Albert Belle and Luke Appling. Lee would go 3 for 5 on the day with a run scored. In the second, the Sox would add three more off starter and losing pitcher Travis Smith. Smith started in place of Mike Hampton, who was scratched with a bruised bicep. Timo Perez, playing rightfield today, got on base with a one-out single. Joe Crede brought him home with a home run, his 10th of the season. Following the home run, Jamie Burke singled for his first hit of the season. Burke would be a hitting star today, going 3 for 4 with 3 RBI and garnering pick to click honors. He would score following an error and then a double by Juan Uribe, to give the Sox a 4-0 cushion. An overzealous Joey Cora would send Willie Harris home on the same play, and he was gunned down on the relay from shortstop Rafael Furcal.

The Braves would get on the board in their half of the fourth. Second baseman Nick Green tripled off the centerfield wall on a play which Harris had a chance to make but was unable to get his glove on. J.D. Drew grounded out to second on the next play, scoring Green to tighten the score at 4-1. The Sox would get the run back in the bottom half of the inning, on another RBI double by Uribe. The Sox would then bat around in the fifth inning off reliever Juan Cruz. The inning highlights included a bases-loaded walk for Crede and a two-run single for Burke which put the Sox up 8-1. Braves manager Bobby Cox was thrown out of the game this inning as well, for apparently arguing balls and strikes from the dugout. Interestingly enough, Cruz would go on to strike out the next five batters he faced after the incident, and would strike out 7 Sox hitters in three innings of work. Buehrle himself would continue to cruise until the top of the 6th. Mark DeRosa would lead off with a single, and the next batter Furcal would deliver a two run shot to close the gap to 8-3. That would be all Buehrle and the Sox would give up today however.

The Sox would add a little insurance in the 7th and 8th. In the 7th, it was Burke again. This time coming up with his first career double, scoring Crede. In the 8th inning, Paul Konerko delivered an RBI double to conclude the scoring and put the Sox into double figures for the fourth time in the five game homestand. Jon Adkins pitched a perfect 9th inning to seal the victory.

With the win, the Palehose conclude the brief homestand with a 3-2 record, and take the series from the Braves two games to one. Thanks to a Twin loss, the Sox also find themselves back in first place by a 1/2 game, two up in the loss column on the Twinkies. They now hit the road to continue interleague play on Tuesday at Pro Player Stadium against the World Champion Florida Marlins. Jon Garland (5-3, 4.73) will try to shake off his worst outing of the season against A.J. Burnett (0-0, 10.80), who will be making his third start of the season in his comeback from Tommy John surgery. Gametime is 6:05 pm CDT.

Ozzieball Update:
Everything looks good when you score 10 runs. They did execute a nice hit-and-run in the fifth inning, but other than that smallball took a back-seat today.
