De-Halo'd

September 14th vs. Los Angeles Angels

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Grilled Tip Pan Steak
Seasoned with quality pitching.

Short Take:Jose Contreras pitches well as our Palehose take off the Angels' halos for one night.

I'll have to hand it to Jose Contreras tonight for actually pitching a quality game for the first time in ages for us Hit & Run season ticket plan holders. Against one of the best offenses in baseball, he got timely pitching and fielding behind himself, along with just enough offense to pave his way to a 5-3 Palehose victory over "Tub 'O Goo" and his California Angels.

One of the main themes for Contreras has been getting the first two out and then losing his mind. Fortunately, he didn't lose his mind too much in the top of the first inning, minimizing the damage to a lone run, which would stand as the only tally for either team...

until the bottom of the fourth came along! With the bases loaded (Jerry Owens, Josh Fields, and Paul Konerko) and two outs, Jermaine Dye singled in the leading two runners. A couple more runs were tacked on in the same inning as Casey Kotchman's throwing error to the infield after a routine liner for AJ Pierzynski allowed Konerko and Dye to trail home giving us a nice 4-1 lead. We even got an extra run the next inning, as Konerko scored his second run of the game off a single by Juan Uribe; but, would that be enough run support for the ever-so-errant Contreras?

Jose did a pretty good job from there on out, allowing only one more run in the top of the sixth. The bullpen gave another run up in the eighth, and Bobby Jenks recorded his 38th save of the season. It's a shame that Jim Thome wasn't able to make it to 500 yet; but, at least we got the win tonight in front of 33,581 Sox fans on a brisk mid-September night. Hopefully Jon Garland's able to follow suit and dust off the Angels tomorrow night, as he faces the formidable Jered Weaver. Gametime is 6:05 and can be seen on WGN.

Back to the Grind Update:
Josh Fields stirred our Sox' offensive drink by playing a key role in the four-run third inning in reaching on a bunt single.
