Baltimore Chopped!

July 6th vs. Baltimore Orioles


How was the trophy defended today?
The bats came alive, and the result was aother series won.

Short Take: Can Jim Thome get any scarier? Sox clobber the Orioles as Sox fans ďPunch A.J.Ē into the All-Star Game.

The Sox were involved in another wild one tonight, with a total of 19 runs and 24 hits. Fortunately, eleven of the runs and thirteen of the hits belonged to the Good Guys, who won 11-8 and moved to within one game of the idle Detroit Tigers.

Anyone who turned on the game after the first two innings probably would have been thinking that a pitcherís duel was in the offing. Both teams had gone down in order in the first and although each had a hit in the second, neither runner came around to score. However, in the top of the third, Javier Vazquez got a little wild, walking the first batter, Kevin Millar, and then giving up a single to Brandon Fahey. Brian Roberts grounded into a fielderís choice, but was safe on a throwing error by Alex Cintron, which also resulted in a run scoring. Melvin Mora also grounded into a fielderís choice, but Miguel Tejada doubled, scoring Fahey. Jeff Conine grounded out, scoring Mora, and then Ramon Hernandez flied out to end the inning. The Oriolesí lead did not last long, though. In the bottom of the frame, after Joe Crede grounded out, an error and some Ozzieball led to the first Sox run, as Juan Uribe was safe at first on a throwing error by Tejada. Singles by Brian Anderson and Scott Podsednik loaded the bases, and a walk to Alex Cintron scored Uribe. With the bases still juiced, Big Jim Thome stepped up to the plate. (Is there anyone out there who DIDNíT see this one coming?) And all of a sudden, itís 5-3 Good Guys after three.

In the fourth, the Oís went down in order. The Sox mounted a threat in the bottom of the inning, but were unable to capitalize on it. Then the Oís went down in order again in the fifth, and it looked like Javy was on cruise control. But just for the hell of it, Big Jim hit another homer; this time, a two-run blast, to make it 7-3 Sox after five. And itís a good thing he hit it because the Orioles were not quite done. They got the two runs back, as first David Riske and then Neal Cotts relieved Javy, who had started getting a little wild again and had given up a leadoff double to Tejada, who is Baltimoreís resident pest. (Every team the Sox play seems to have at least one pest on it.) And it was 7-5 after five.

The score stayed that way until the Chicago seventh. With Kurt Burkins on the mound for the Oís, Cintron reached on an infield single. The Orioles changed pitchers, which got them nowhere as Paul Konerko also hit an infield single, moving Alex to second. Then the guys apparently got a little tired of playing Ozzieball and pulled out the lumber again, as Jermaine Dye and A.J. Pierzynski went back-to-back to make it 11-5. Cliff Politte came in to pitch in the eighth and got through the inning without incident, but in the ninth, he gave up a leadoff single to Millar, followed by a walk to Howie Clark. Cliffy got the next two batters out and it looked like heíd get out of the jam, but up stepped Tejada (again). Another double scored Millar, and a single by Conine scored Clark and Tejada. Fortunately, Matt Thornton came on and induced Corey Patterson to strike out to end the game. So that makes it Bostonís turn, starting Friday night. Game time: 7:35 Central. Warning! Have your finger near the mute button; itís on ESPN.
