Just Enough for Jose

April 12 at Detroit


How was the trophy defended today?
Jose pitches like October!

Short Take:  Jose turns in a solid effort in this afternoons game over the "surprising" Tigers.

Okay Sox fans...you can now back off the ledge. Well, those of you who were dumb enough to be on one. With today's 4-3 victory over the Tigers the Sox bring their record to 4-4 and take their first series of 2006.

Jose Contreras got his first win of the season by shutting down the Tigers offense. He faced the minimum of Tiger hitters through four innings while the Sox bats took care of the support he could need.

Jim Thome hit his fifth home run of the season in the fourth inning off Tigers starter Nate Robertson to give the Sox a 1-0 lead. The defending champs padded their lead in the sixth. Tadahito Iguchi walked ahead of Thome's double that put runners on second and third for Paul Konerko. El Capitan hit a ground ball to center field to score both runners giving the Sox a 3-0 edge. Konerko would later reach third base on an error in the infield and scored to make it 4-0 on a Joe Crede sac fly. That run would prove to be the game winner.

Contreras picked up where he left off last season today. Jose went the full eight innings giving up and one earned run on a solo shot from Craig Monroe in the Tigers half of the sixth.

Things did get a tad interesting when it started to downpour in the Tigers last at bat. Bobby Jenks came in to nail it down. The first batter he faced was good 'ol hernia boy Magglio Ordonez. Maggs hit a fly ball to center that Brian Anderson looked like an ass trying to catch which allowed Maggs to lead off with a double. Carlos Guillen grounded out next but Chris Shelton hit a two run bomb to left putting the Tigers just a run from tying the game. But, thats exactly where the Sox wanted them. Jenks got the last two batters out to secure the 4-3 win and the "save."

The Sox will try and break even tomorrow going for the sweep of the Tigers with Jon Garland on the mound. Justin Verlander will get the call for the Tigers. The game has another 12:05pm start and it can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.
