10th Inning Frenzy

June 10...At San Diego

"Rowand, Everett, Konerko, Crede, Iguchi, Podsednik, and Politte all added their own dimensions to today's victory."

Short Take: Three-run round-tripper by Aaron Rowand gives the White Sox not only the last laugh, but the series victory at PetCo Park as well.

The White Sox played the meanest form of trickery on the San Diego Padres today at PetCo Park. They toyed with the leaders of the NL West in every way possible by twice giving them leads and ultimately forcing extra innings, where Chicago quickly made a meal out of the Padres to the tune of an 8-5 throbbing blow.

Carl Everett started things off well for the Sox by hitting a solo home run off Padre starter Brian Lawrence. The 1-0 lead the Sox saw was very short-lived, as Sox starter Freddy Garcia gave up a three-run shot to Phil Nevin, which scored both Robert Fick and Ryan Klesko. The Padres held a 3-1 lead after the first frame.

The next couple of innings put no dents on the scorecard. Joe Crede brought the score to within one run by leading off the fourth inning with his own solo-shot. The very next inning, Chicago was able to even up the duel. Scott Podsednik lead the inning off by doubling. Everett doubled Podsednik in. The most unconventional forms of a double play occurred after that. Paul Konerko grounded out easily; but, Everett was called out for running out of the baseline. The score was knotted at three runs a side after five innings of play.

This game of cat and mouse continued in the sixth inning, as Sean Burroughs got a lead-off double and scored on an RBI double by Khalil Greene. To end the scoring in the inning, Greene crossed home plate on an RBI by Damian Jackson. San Diego held a 5-3 lead after six. The score would remain the same after the seventh inning as well.

Exit, Padre offense. Enter, White Sox outstanding pitching and timely hitting.

Everett doubled to lead off the eighth inning and scored on a duck snort single by Konerko. Konerko advanced to the hot corner as AJ Pierzynski followed him with a double. After Crede struck out, Timo Perez was intentionally walked. Konerko scored as a result of Padre relief pitcher Akinori Otsuka walking Juan Uribe. The score was knotted at 5-5 after the completion of the inning, and no scoring was done in the nineth, which brought the game into extra innings.

Prior to the game, the White Sox were 3-3 in extra innings, while the Padres were 4-2. The close game that was quickly turned into a laugher in favor of the White Sox in just a few swings. The first three batters reached safely, as Tadahito Iguchi singled off of San Diego's usually reliable closer, Trevor Hoffman, and Podsednik followed with a single of his own. Aaron Rowand hit a three-run bomb to deep left field, which pushed the San Diego Padres into a pit full of freshly sharpened knives, and Cliff Politte (today's winning pitcher) mowed them down in order in the bottom of the inning.

The final scenes of the game displayed the Padres swimming in a sea of their own blood, while Rowand, Politte, and the rest of the White Sox basked in the glory of their 8-5 extra-inning victory.

Live it up, Sox fans! The White Sox now lead the AL Central by 5.5 games and enter a two-week homestand. There are no more games left in NL ballparks until, hopefully, late October, which gives our beloved the DH for the remaining balance of their schedule. Tomorrow night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks can be seen on WCIU at 7:05. Jose Contreras goes for his fourth win of the season and will be countered by Shawn Estes. If you're in the Chicagoland area, do yourself a favor and get to the ticket box office as soon as you can so that you can openly show your appreciation for this team finishing a 5-1 road trip.
