Me-OWWWW! Sox Claw Tigers

July 18 at Detroit Tigers

How was the trophy defended today?
Timely hitting and strong pitching from the defending World Series Champs

Short Take: Jon Garland and Paul Konerko led the way on a night when the Sox needed to win.

In the first of a three-game set between the two AL Central rivals, Jon Garland held the Kittens to just one run. Paul Konerko provided much of the firepower, blasting two home runs. Joe Crede added a double and a homer, and Jermaine Dye hit two doubles as the Sox topped the Tigers 7-1.

Some fans were calling this a “must-win” game, while others insisted there’s no such thing in July. No matter which side you’re on, there is no denying the importance of this win. The Sox needed to rebound from being swept by the Yankees this past weekend, and they did just that. Once again, the game started out looking like a pitchers’ duel, with first the Sox and then the Tigers going 1-2-3 in the first inning. But in the top of the third, after Konerko flied out, Dye stepped up to the plate and doubled to deep center. A.J. Pierzynski grounded out, but then Crede doubled, scoring Dye. Juan Uribe popped up for the third out. The score remained 1-0 through three, then in the top of the fourth, again with one out, Jermaine hit his second double and went to third on a groundout by A.J. Then Crede walked, and Uribe singled to left, scoring Dye. Detroit scored their first run in the bottom of the fifth to keep the game close at 2-1—for the time being, that is.

In the top of the sixth, home runs by Konerko and Crede opened up some breathing room. Then, in the seventh, a single by Brian Anderson and another by Big Jim Thome set the table for Paulie, who belted his second home run of the night, and suddenly it was 7-1 Good Guys.

And that’s how it ended. Jon notched his 9th win with help in relief from Brandon McCarthy and Matt Thornton, and the Sox moved to 3.5 games back. Tonight, they’ll try to close the gap even further with Javier Vazquez on the hill against Jeremy Bonderman. Game time: 6:05 Central. Unfortunately, it’s on ESPN again, so whatever you do, don’t lose that remote!

Ozzieball Update: Singles, doubles, and three home runs provided all the offense we needed.
