Bats for Danks

May 9 vs Minnesota Twins

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Veal Leg Sirloin Steak
Danks the backbone with some muscle for the backup!

Short Take:   John Danks locks up his first win of his major league career in tonight's 6-3 win over the Twins!

Tonight the Sox bats finally woke for John Danks who has received the lowest amount of run support through his young career on the South Side this season. The four run first inning off Twins starter Ramon Ortiz was enough to hold off the Twins in a 6-3 win in the garbage dome.

With the Sox already up 1-0 in the first inning, a golden opportunity was almost wasted with the bases loaded with a two out full count on Juan Uribe. Never fear though, Juan was able to draw a walk forcing in the second run of the inning before Ryan Sweeney connected for a two run RBI single putting the Sox up 4-0 in the first.

John Danks did not fear whatever pet name Ozzie thought of for the Twins tonight as he completely dismantled the defending AL Central champs through 6 2/3. Danks allowed one run in the seventh inning off a RBI single from Jeff Cirillo. That was one of three hits Danks allowed on the evening. Unfortunately, the self-proclaimed "O.G." himself, Torii Hunter extended his hitting streak to 23 games. Boo.

The Sox padded their lead with a tally in the fifth and seventh innings, which was a good thing because the Twins did all their scoring late, as usual, to make the game interesting. Luckily, there were no breakdowns in our bullpen as only Mike MacDougal yielded two more runs off a Hunter two RBI single in the eighth. Bobby Jenks came on and quickly had Sox fans throwing things in their homes by walking the first two batters of the ninth. Jenks was able to retire the next three batters Jason Kubel, Jason Bartlett, and Luis Castillo to end the game giving John Danks his first win.

With the win, the Sox even their record at 15-15, amazingly, that puts the Sox 4.5 back of the first place Cleveland Indians on this early May night. Tomorrow, Jose Contreras will try and get the Sox above water by taking down Carlos Silva and the rest of Ozzie Guillen's dream team at 12:10pm. The game can be seen on Comcast Sports Net.
