Chicago Hostesses Twin Killing

September 7th vs. Minnesota Twins

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Slowly-Cooked Beef Stew
It needs to be cooked slowly for best results.

Short Take:Palehose come back from six-run deficit in nineth and win it in extras, 11-10!

Sox fans, we have witnessed major league history at our own ballpark. Never before had a team come back after giving up six or more runs in the nineth inning in a tie game...until tonight, that is! Our Sox had one of their most exhilerating games in store tonight in a 11-10 win over the Minnesota Twins.

If I were to give you the low down pitch-by-pitch for what went down tonight, my Totally Biased Game Report would be taller than the Chicago Spire; so, I have decided to give you the Cliffs Notes version. To begin the game off, the Twins immediately scored a couple of runs, our Sox countering with a run of their own (Jim Thome's first of four RBIs tonight)..and that was just the first inning! In the second, our Sox saw their first lead, as the unthinkable happened! Juan Uribe hit a two-run homer, as a ball that appeared to be a tall flyout dropped into the Sox' bullpen. Minnesota would get those runs back in the fourth, and Alex Cintron homered right after we all sang Take Me Out to the Ballgame, which set up the wildest of nineth innings!

With the game knotted at four, Minnesota scored six runs, both off untimely fielding errors by Uribe and Danny Richar, which sent about 1/3 of the Sox fans to the exits. Twins fans started to get louder, and a group of them a couple sections over from me started some choice hostile chants. Someone call the FCC over to Section 147! And then, the comeback began...

The first six Palehose runners reached base safely off Julio DePaula and Joe Nathan. With Cintron at third, Richar at second, and Luis Terrero at first, Josh Fields doubled in two, setting up a "Ducks on the Pond" situation for the man of the evening. If you travel to Comiskey Park anytime soon, you will see a "Thome Tracker" on the LaSalle Bank sign in right field. The number changed tonight, as Thome hit a three-run bomb to the ivy on the Fan Deck! All of a sudden, our Sox had scored five runs without recording a single out! Allowing extra innings, Paul Konerko faught for a one-out walk and was pinch-run for by Scott Podsednik, who stole second and scored on a ground-rule double by Darin Erstad! And, so, it was 10-10 going to extras!

The greatest of culprits of knocking in the winning run did so in the bottom of the 13th. After Terrero walked and was sacrificed over, Thome was intentionally walked, causing a ton of boos from all of us Sox fans who stayed to watch the ending of this game. Then came a play I hadn't seen in a long time. It appeared as if Podsednik had hit into an inning-ending double play; but, Nick Punto was knocked off second by a sliding Thome, causing him to miss the base as well as not get a good throw to first. The bases were loaded for AJ Pierzynski to go for the kill, knocking in Terrero. The fireworks ignited for the Sox hard-fought victory over the most hated Twins, with more to come a few moments later for the fans who stayed.

Before I end this, I must give an honorable mention to Heath Phillips, who recorded his first major league victory tonight, and got a neat pick-off at first to end the top of the 13th. Our Sox look to do more of the same Saturday afternoon against these same Twins. Gametime is at 2:55 and can be seen on FOX Chicago.

Scott Podsednik stole second after pinch-running for Paul Konerko, which greatly assisted in the tying run scoring in the bottom of the nineth.
