Hot Diggity Dog

May 11 vs. Kansas City Royals

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Pork Tenderloin
Not much grinding going on, but the pitching delivered a happy result.

Short Take:On the annual Dog Day on the south side, Jon Garland pitched a gem, and the Sox' offense got just enough runs to eke out a 2-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals.

After finally getting in the "Win" column in his previous start, Jon Garland was set to try to even his record on the season on a semi-chilly evening at gorgeous Comiskey Park in front of over 34,000 fans and 500 dogs. Yes, it happened to be the annual Dog Day on the south side, and Garland did not send anyone home on an empty stomach (unless they were Royals fans, that is), shutting down Kansas City 2-1, going deep into the game in the process.

In a game that was dazzled by a pitcher's duel, the Sox inked the scorecard in the fourth and fifth innings, adding a run in each. AJ Pierzynski, who has had several key offensive plays recently, started things off with a solo shot to deep right field. The other run scored by the pinstriped men was largely due to a fielding error by Tony Pena. After Tadahito Iguchi led off with a double and moved to the hot corner on a sac fly by Juan Uribe, Darin Erstad got him in on a wicked shot past Pena a-la-Graffanino. These two runs would be all the Sox would need in the game.

In the nineth frame, Kansas City scored a token run by Esteban German; but, that certainly was not enough, as Bobby Jenks got his 12th save of the season. And, so, the Sox improved to 3-0 against Kansas City this season. Back in 2005, the Sox' dominance of KC helped them gain their outstanding playoff positioning on their way to winning the World Series. Perhaps they can have more of the same this year, of course, with the same result! Mark Buehrle gets a chance at another victory Saturday night at 6:05 pm. The game can be viewed on WGN if you can't make it out to Fireworks Night.

Not any real grinding went on here; but, I guess it doesn't really matter this time!
