"Maggs watches Joe Borchard's blast in awe wondering when he'll be able to try for the same thing."

Short Take:  Buehrle bailed out by offensive attack; picks up 12th win.

When Sox fans look back on the 2004 season it will most certainly be looked at as a major failure. But the Sox had a chance to accomplish a minor feat in Monday’s game. The game against the Phillies was a makeup game of a rainout earlier in the season. Entering Monday, the American League held a 126-125 advantage in interleague games for the 2004 season. A White Sox win and the AL would secure the 2004 series win in interleague games. A loss would tie the season series. Hey, it’s not much but it’s about all Sox fans have to root for these days. Starting for the Sox was Mark Buehrle who picked up a win against the Phillies earlier in the year despite a poor outing. Buehrle didn’t fair much better today allowing 5 runs in 6 innings, but he once again got the win in a 9-8 White Sox win!

Buehrle quickly finished off the Phillies in the 1st inning but the 2nd was a different story. Back-to-back singles started the inning before the runners were moved over on a sacrifice. Another single and a fielder’s choice brought in 2 runs and Buehrle managed to avoid disaster. The Sox immediately fought back to tie the game. Carl Everett led off the 2nd inning with a double and came around to score two batters later on Juan Uribe‘s base hit. The next batter, Joe Borchard, made U.S. Cellular Field history. Borchard took a first pitch fastball and absolutely crushed it to right field. The result was a U.S. Cellular record 504 foot home run. The monstrous 2-run home run was a thing of beauty to Sox fans, almost enough to make Sox fans forget that Borchard struck out in his next 3 at-bats. Almost. But before fans could get over Borchard’s homer, Buehrle had given up the lead. In fact it took only 2 pitches in the 3rd before Buehrle gave up a leadoff solo shot to Jason Michaels. A double and a walk later the Sox and Buehrle were in trouble. It didn’t get any better when David Bell doubled to bring in another run. A final sacrifice fly and the Sox were down 5-3. The 4th inning started in a similar way. Tomas Perez took the second pitch of the inning to left field for a solo home run and a 6-3 Phillies lead. But the Sox were not done.

It took until the 5th inning, but the Sox did manage to close the gap. Joe Crede led off with a double before Aaron Rowand walked. Carl Everett came to the plate 3 batters later. With the bases loaded, Everett singled to plate 1 run. Timo Perez would stop at 3rd temporarily. But Everett took a wide turn at 1st base and got caught in a pickle between 1st and 2nd. Perez inexplicably tried to go home but got bailed out on a David Bell error. Perez scored and the Sox caught a break for their 2nd run of the inning. In the 6th inning Jamie Burke started the rally with a 1 out single. Two batters later Rowand drove him in with a single of his own. Rowand advanced to 2nd on the throw home and later scored on a Timo Perez bunt. The Sox held the lead and Aaron Rowand provided a cushion in the 8th inning with a 2-run home run to expand the lead to 9-6. As it turned out, those two runs were huge. The 9th inning was Shingo

The Sox welcome in the Oakland Athletics tomorrow. Felix Diaz will get the start for the Sox against Rich Harden. Diaz was called up after the Sox placed “veteran influence” Mike Jackson on irrevocable waivers. Opposing teams will no doubt miss the opportunity to face Jackson with the bases loaded. The game is scheduled to start at 7:05 CDT.
