Avian Annihilation

June 20 vs St. Louis Cardinals


How was the trophy defended today?
A hitting assault that bordered on the maniacal.

Short Take: The White Sox offence demolishes St. Louis pitching en route to a 20-6 rout.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is likely to file an official complaint against the Chicago White Sox Baseball Club after a flock of rarely sighted Midwestern redbirds were slaughtered before 39,463 onlookers at U.S. Cellular Field. When the feathers finished flying, the Sox had pounded out 24 hits – including four home runs – for a 20-6 romp over St. Louis.

Not since 1996, at a game in Milwaukee, have the Sox scored 20 runs in a game. Who’d a thunk it, after Cardinals starter Mark Mulder – normally a thorn in the Sox side – mowed through the Sox order in the first two innings. Sox starter Javier Vazquez had given up three hits in the first inning to provide the Cards with an early 1-0 lead, but it would not last. Mulder appeared to be labouring with his pitches, and the Sox offence erupted in an epic third inning.

Sixteen Sox batters came to the plate, every man in the lineup got at least one hit, with nine of them being surrendered by Mulder. Joe Crede and Brian Anderson led off the inning with doubles. The hit parade continued relentlessly, as the Sox seemed to find the open spaces of the field with every at-bat. A.J. Pierzynski mashed a three-run homer and Crede followed with a two-run blast in his second at-bat of the inning. Both A.J. and Crede would fall a triple short of hitting for the cycle this night.

When the dust settled, the Sox had scored 11 runs, driven Mulder from the game, and beaten up on his replacement as well.

Juan Uribe continued to heat up at the plate by knocking a two-run homer in the fourth inning to make it 13-1 Sox.

Vazquez was able to cruise the rest of the way. He gave up one more run in the sixth, for which the Cardinals were punished severely. Sidney Ponson started the inning on the mound for St. Louis and gave up four hits in a row to Jermaine Dye, A.J., Uribe and Crede. Dye was driven home by Uribe’s single. Having loaded the bases, Ponson lost his marbles and plunked both Anderson and Pablo Ozuna to bring in two more runs on HBPs. The requisite warnings were issued to both benches. Crede came home on a wild pitch, and Ross Gload chipped in with a bloop single to drive in two more runs. At that point, the score was 19-2.

In the top of the seventh inning, newly acquired reliever David Riske responded to Ponson’s antics by plunking St. Louis bench player Chris Duncan. Riske and Ozzie Guillen were both ejected to applause from the sellout crowd. Crede launched his second home run of the game in the seventh inning to make it 20-2.

Agustin Montero provided the only black spot on the Sox this night, coming in and giving up four senseless runs to the Cardinals for a 20-6 final.

Hopefully the slaughter will be reprised tonight as Mark Buehrle (7-4, 3.13) faces RHP Jason Marquis (9-4, 4.55). Let’s get some runs for Mark, fellas! Game time is 8:05 Central.

Ozzieball Update:
Two Sox batters were plunked, and David Riske delivered an appropriate response. Did you see that, Mr. Tracey?
