Always Interesting

"Contreras shut the Mariners down, Dye and Everett keep the Sox on top."

Short Take:  The Mariners make it interesting in the end, but Jose Contreras nailed Seattle all night as the Sox pick up their fourth straight in a 4-3 win.

Jose Contreras pitched another masterful game for our first place Pale Hose tonight in Seattle. Going seven strong innings and giving up three runs and five hits. Best of all, get this, NO WALKS! Yes, that was no walks and Jose Contreras in the same sentance. This was his second straight outing with not letting a batter on with a free pass. Jermaine Dye took care of the Sox offense and he also saved the game on his defense for the 79th victory of the season.

The Sox half of the second inning started the attack. Jermaine Dye launched a two run home run making it 2-0 Sox off Mariners starter Joel Pinerio. In the Sox fourth Jermaine Dye led off with a double and advanced to third on Geoff Blum's single. Dye scored on a Juan Uribe single to make it a 3-0 Sox lead. The Sox looked to add more in the inning but Brian Anderson failed to advance the runners with a pop up to short. Timo Perez hit a ball that landed in front of right fielder Ichiro Suzuki, but Uribe was waiting to see if the ball was going to be caught or not and was thrown out at second base. Tadahito Iguchi couldn't work his magic, he struck out to end the threat. But, in the seventh inning Carl Everett would hit what would be the game winning run by connecting for his 20th home run of the season, a solo shot making it 4-0 Sox.

Contreras gave up a lead off single to Richie Sexton in the second inning, but from there Contreras would retire 15 straight batters until the seventh. Willie Bloomquist singled and advanced to third base on a Raul Ibanez single. The next batter, Sexton, struck out for the first out of the inning but Contreras hit Adrian Beltre to load the bases. Greg Dobbs cut the Sox lead in half by hitting a RBI single scoring two. Contreras got out of the inning by making a great play fielding a swinging bunt by Yorvit Torrealba and getting Yuniesky Betancourt to fly out. In the eighth inning Contreras gave up a lead off single to Jamal Strong which promted Ozzie to bring in Neal Cotts. Cotts walked Ichiro but got Willie Bloomquist to pop up a bunt attempt for the first out of the inning. Sox killer Raul Ibanez struck out and Ozzie pulled Cotts to have Bobby Jenks face Richie Sexton. Sexton launched a Jenks offering down the right field line scoring Strong but Jermaine Dye and Tadahito Iguchi did the impossible. They nailed Ichiro at the plate when he was trying to score the tying run from first base.

The Mariners got the trying run on second and the winning run on first base but the bullpen held up and kept the Mariners off the board to secure the win for Jose and the Sox.

Jose picks up his record to 9-7 and Damaso Marte picks up his fourth save of the season. With tonights win coupled with the Indians loss, the Sox now hold a nine game lead in the AL Central with their AL best 79-47 record. Tomorrow, Freddy Garcia (11-6 3.54ERA) will match up against Jamie Moyer. (10-5 4.29ERA) Game time is at 3:05pm and it will be televised on Comcast SportsNet.

Ozzieball Update:
 Anderson couldn't move the runners along, but Jermaine Dye picked up the Sox with a hitting and defense clinic. Everett's HR proved to be the game winner.

A perfect night. Went 4-4 with a 2-run HR, and a great defensive play in right field.
