Row, Row, Row Your Boat...Rowand's Leather Wins The Game!

August 10 at New York Yankees

"Podsednik, Ozuna, Rowand, Dye, Uribe, Garcia, and Cotts all had some effect on a well-played victory this afternoon in the Evil Empire."

Short Take: In a closely-played series, the White Sox eked out a nice 2-1 victory to close out the series at Yankee Stadium and win the series by that same 2-1 count. Major props goes to the pitching and Aaron Rowand's defense.

Over the course of this season, many various media sources have claimed that our beloved White Sox have been playing "over their head." They have been winning based on luck and luck alone. Kenny Williams says to that: "We don't care!" And, true enough, these Sox just don't care. They come to play every single day, proving tons of individuals wrong in the process. What many national media sources claimed to be the Sox biggest "test" of the season thus far (a series in the Evil Empire), the Sox passed with flying colors. After losing the first game to the New York Yankees, our Palehose answered by grinding out a win last night, setting the stage for yet another close one to conclude the series on this beautiful afternoon nearing mid-August.

Sox starter Freddy Garcia pitched a very outstanding game, surrendering only one run during his entire time on the bump, and that wasn't even an earned run. Derek Jeter hit a routine grounder to Juan Uribe that was poorly thrown, getting past Paul Konerko, with Jeter standing on second base to lead-off the game. He later scored on an RBI-single by Gary Sheffield. This would account for the only run the Evil Empire would score during this stunningly pitched outing by our superior Palehose.

A couple innings later, Pablo Ozuna got a bunt single. Carl Everett ripped a double off the wall with Ozuna trotting all around the bases to score the tying run. Everett was later caught advancing on a fielder's choice, which allowed Konerko to reach first base safely, and was tagged out. A 1-1 tie flashed on the scoreboard at that time.

The knotted score at one run a side continued through the nineth inning. Mariano Rivera and Neal Cotts both pitched a perfect nineth, bringing the game into extra innings. Uribe, who had all of three strikeouts to his credit in the game, trippled to right center field in the top of the 10th inning. Scott Podesednik, who didn't have the greatest of fortunes himself in this game, came through in the clutch. He reached on a fielder's choice, with Robinson Cano going home with the grounder. Uribe knocked Jorge Posada's leg out of the way and scored the go-ahead run.

In the bottom of the frame, Cotts recorded an out. Dustin Hermanson dusted the rest of the Yankees off, recording his 30th save of the year in 31 tries. That would be a 97% save percentage for our stud bullpen backstop. Cotts improved to a perfect 4-0 for the season, and, to the pleasure of millions of Sox fans around the globe, Rivera took the loss.

Your final score: Your VICTORIOUS Chicago White Sox 2, New York Yankees 1.

Honorable Mention: Although the pitching was outstanding, Aaron Rowand pretty much won this series for our Palehose with his glove in center field. In due time, more heads will turn to see his brilliance on the field, and he will hopefully get some hardware this October in the form of a Gold Glove winner.

The Sox have a day off now before facing off with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park for a three-game series this weekend. The last time the Sox and Carmines squared off, the teams split a four-game series at beautiful Comiskey Park. Friday's game sees Cy Young candidate and Sox ace Mark Buehrle face David Wells. Gametime is 6:05 Chicago time and can be seen on Comcast Sports Net Chicago. Until then, bask in the glory that comes with taking a series at Yankee Stadium for the next 50 hours.
