"Every player with an at bat got a hit tonight. Including the pitchers. Everybody."

Short Take:Sox pound out 15 runs, 22 hits to sweep Rockies at Coors Field.

The White Sox raise their record to an amazing 40-19 tonight following a 15-5 drubbing of the Rockies in Denver, completing a three-game series sweep. Orlando Hernandez settled down after a shaky start to pitch 6 innings for his 7th win of the season.

The Sox got on the board early off Rockies' rookie phenom Jeff Francis. Aaron Rowand doubled with one out in the first, advancing Tadahito Iguchi to third. Both runners would score on a two out single up the middle by Carl Everett, who had 3 RBI on the evening. Jermaine Dye was the next batter, and he doubled Everett home to give the Sox a 3-0 lead. The Rockies got one run back in the bottom of the first off Hernandez on an RBI single by Todd Helton. The Rockies would take the lead in the bottom of the second with a 3 run inning, thanks in part to a throwing error by Pablo Ozuna. But Hernandez would settle in and retire 13 of the next 14 batters he would face, keeping the Sox in the game until their offense could heat up.

Boy, did the offense heat up. The Sox tied the game back up in the 5th on an RBI double by Iguchi, and would take a 5-4 lead when Everett delivered a two-out single to score Iguchi. The score would remain 5-4 until the top of the 8th inning, when the Sox offense would explode for 6 runs off the Rockies bullpen. Paul Konerko started the barrage off with a single off former Tiger reliever and current Rockies whipping boy Matt Anderson. Anderson would face 5 batters, allow 4 hits, and did not record an out. This included an RBI single to Dye, and a 2-RBI single to former Rock Juan Uribe, giving the Sox an 8-4 lead with two on and still no outs. Marcos Carvajal relieved Anderson, but didn't fare too much better. With the infield drawn in and reliever Cliff Politte at the plate, Politte surprised everyone by swinging away and delivering a single to the right side of the infield to score Chris Widger. To conclude the weird play of the night, Politte advanced to second on the throw from Rockies rightfielder Brad Hawpe, which nailed the second base umpire in the chest and knocked him to the ground. Uribe and Politte would both eventually score in an inning in which the Sox tallied 6 runs on 6 hits and sent 10 men to the plate. Unbelievably it was the first inning this season the Sox have scored 5 or more runs.

After Luis Vizcaino pitched a scoreless bottom of the 8th, the Sox bats went back to work in the 9th. They added 4 more runs, three of them on back to back home runs by Joe Crede and Frank Thomas. With a run already in and Uribe on second following an RBI double, Crede hit a two-run blast to left to put the Sox safely ahead 14-4. Thomas then pinch-hit for Vizcaino and delivered a solo homer to straightaway centerfield, his second home run of the season which put the Sox up 15-4. Shingo Takatsu would give up a leadoff solo homer to pinch hitter JD Closser to make the score 15-5. Takatsu would then strike out the next two batters before walking Helton and then striking out Dustan Mohr to end the game.

On the heels of the sweep, the first-place Sox have an off day tomorrow before heading to San Diego to face the Padres in a three-game series. Jon Garland (9-2, 3.40) will be looking for his 10th win of the season against the Padres' Woody Williams (2-3, 4.46). Gametime is 9:05 pm CDT at Petco Park.

Ozzieball Update:
15 runs on 22 hits pretty much says it all.
