We'll Take It

September 23 vs. Twins


Sox Magic Number:
8
"Can't get any help from the Royals."

Short Take:  A first inning 3-run bomb by Jermaine Dye and a complete game by Jose Contreras puts the Sox back in the win column.

Jose Contreras took a quick lead the struggling Sox offense gave him and single handedly went through the Twins lineup on this chilly night on the South Side. It wasn't pretty, but a win is a win.

It looked like Twins' starter Kyle Loshe was going to get out of a jam in the first inning. Scott Podsednik led off with a double, but Tadahito Iguci struck out, and A.J. Pierzysnki (who batted third tonight) flew out to center. Paul Konerko drew a walk to keep the inning going for Jermaine Dye. Dye took a Loshe pitch and lined it over the left field fense for a three run home run to put the Sox up 3-0.

That's all support Jose Contreras needed tonight. At one point in the game, Contreras retired thirteen Twins hitters in a row. Contreras pitched a complete game giving up one run on a Micahel Ryan RBI-single in the Twins half of the seventh. Contreras went out to pitch the ninth inning and gave up a lead off single to Nick Punto. But with the help of the Sox defense, Jose was able to pick up the "W." Joe Mauer hit a ball to the left of Juan Uribe that he had to make an off balance throw to get the speedy Mauer at first. Tadahito Iguchi made a great play on a slow roller past the mound to get Matthew LeCroy for the second out and moving Punto to third base. Ozzie came out of the dugout to talk to Jose with Sox-killer Jacque Jones coming to the plate. Jose threw three straight forkballs that Jones swung and missed on for the White Sox winner!

The Sox could've blown out the Twins tonight but once again they left lots of runners on base making Sox fans holding their breath all night and waiting to see if the team could hold on. The win moves the Sox record to 92-61. Tomorrow Freddy Garcia looks to keep the Sox going against Joe Mays. Gametime is at 6:05pm and it will be televised on WGN.
