Doing the Texas Two-Stomp

June 12th at Texas Rangers


How was the trophy defended today?
Everything worked tonight; pitching, timely hitting, and power.

Short Take: The World Series Champs shine as Jose Contreras serves up a gem.

Any Sox fans who were worried about the possibility of having to sit through yet another nailbiter quickly found there was no need for concern. The Good Guys jumped out to an early lead and never looked back on their way to a convincing 8-3 victory over the Texas Rangers. Jose Contreras had absolutely filthy stuff all night, striking out 11—including the side in the third—while walking none. His 15th straight decision—dating back to last August—tied a franchise record held by LaMarr Hoyt and Wilson Alvarez.

The game started off with a double by Scott Podsednik, who moved to third on a bunt hit by Pablo Ozuna. Jim Thome followed with a single, which scored Pods. Then Paul Konerko singled, scoring Pablo, and Jermaine Dye singled, scoring Thome. Unfortunately, Paulie was out trying to go to third on a flyout by AJ Pierzynski, and Joe Crede popped up to end the top of the inning. Texas went down in order, and the Sox led 3-0 after one. In the second, Juan Uribe opened up with a single, and a Brian Anderson double sent him to third. A sac fly by Pods and a single by Pablo brought in two more runs before Big Jim hit into a double play. Then Texas went down in order for the second straight inning. Sox 5, Rangers 0.

The Sox decided to play some more Ozzieball in the top of the fifth. With one out, Thome walked, then went to third on a single by Paulie. JD’s walk sent Paulie to second, then Big Jim scored on a fielder’s choice, but a strikeout by Crede ended the threat. Things got a little rocky in the bottom of the frame. A couple of Ranger hits, a sac fly, and a home run by Rod Barajas pulled Texas to within three. But the Sox got two of those back in the eighth with some more Ozzieball, including a homer by AJ, two singles, and a sacrifice bunt. Neal Cotts came on in the ninth to close things out, which he did by retiring the side in order.

The Good Guys look to make it two straight against Texas tonight, with Jon Garland on the hill. Game time: 7:05 Central.
