Maybe It Wasn't Very Pretty, but We'll Take It!

April 13 at Detroit


How was the trophy defended today?
We Outlasted Them!

Short Take:  Another big lead almost disappears, but this time, the Sox tough it out--together.

Even though the Good Guys would win this one 13-9, before the game started it looked like it would be a classic pitchers’ duel between Jon Garland and Detroit’s much-heralded Justin Verlander. The game began auspiciously enough with back-to-back homers by Tadahito Iguchi and Jim Thome, aka, “The Thominator.” The Kitties countered in the bottom of the frame with a run and after one, it was 2-1 Sox. An uneventful second inning followed and when the first two Sox batters were retired in the top of the third, the pitchers’ duel was looking even more likely to materialize. Who knew? A walk to Thome was followed by a bunch of singles and doubles. When the smoke cleared, Verlander was gone, Jason Grilli had come on in relief, and the score was 7-1 Sox. The Tigers went down in order in the third, and the Sox added two in the fourth for a 9-1 lead.

However, Detroit was not done. In the bottom of the fourth, Dmitri Young singled and Chris Shelton--who is becoming a real pest--slapped one out and the lead was cut to 9-3. It was 10-3 in the bottom of the fifth when Detroit handed the Sox a taste of their own medicine. A single by Pudge Rodriguez, a home run by Magglio Ordonez, a couple of doubles, and suddenly it was Sox 10-Tigers 7.  

In the bottom of the sixth, Brandon McCarthy came on in relief of JG. Detroit would close to within two, but in the top of the seventh, the Sox decided to revisit the third inning. The first two batters were retired, but then Brian Anderson walked, Scott Posednik was hit by a pitch, Iguchi doubled, Thome walked, Konerko got a hit, and we had some breathing room. Sox 13-Tigers 8. The Tigers added one more run, but in the end, they could not avoid the broom.

 By leaving JG in to nail down the win, Ozzie once again showed his faith in his players.
