Short Take: Sox offense shows up again, and this time gets a win

Let's face it, Sox fans. There hasn't been a hell of a lot to cheer about regarding our team lately. 2 and 3 run nights have become pretty much the norm for the boys in pinstripes over the past few weeks. Last night, the offense came out of hibernation and tallied 11 runs, but lost. Tonight though, the Sox score 9 and pummel the Royals by a count of 9-3 in a game that maybe, just maybe could mark the re-opening of the South Side Lumber Company.

The words "Jon Garland" and "dominating start" haven't been used in the same sentence very much lately without the words "pitched anything but a" in between them. Tonight though, give the big righty credit where it's due, as he had one heck of an outing en route to his 8th win of the season. As is usually the case, Jon ran into trouble early in the game giving up 3 runs in the third, but after that settled right back down, retiring 10 Royals batters in a row to end his outing. Garland scatters 7 hits over 7 innings and fans 4, but perhaps paramount is that he only walked one batter. Maybe he's finally learning that if you don't walk guys, they don't score! Garland was backed up by some solid defense from the left side of his infield, as Jose Valentin was a whirling dervish out at short who didn't even mess anything up. Preserving Garland's win were the much maligned Mike Jackson and Jon Adkins, each of whom worked a scoreless inning in relief.

You know when Willie Harris goes 5 for 5 on the night that something's gotta be clicking for Sox hitters. Wee Willie was a hitting machine tonight, belting 3 doubles (one of which was a yellow stripe away of being his first home run of the year) and finds his way home twice. Willie left the home run theatrics up to Carlos Lee, Joe Crede and Paul Konerko. Believe it or not, each of them homered with men on base. It's been quite a loooong time since we've seen that. Lee's home run came in the Sox half of the 3rd and tied the game at 3, and the Sox never looked back. Props also go out to Ben Davis, whose 2 hits on the night boosted his average to triple what it was when he joined the Sox at the end of June. And to think, most of the damage done tonight was against the same Zack Greinke who completely shut the Sox down just 5 short days ago.

Sox and Royals again tomorrow at US Cellular with a 7:05 CDT first pitch. Mark Buehrle faces off against Darrell May.

Ozzieball Update:
 No real texbook smallball seen tonight, but hey--at least the home runs aren't solo shots.
