TCQ and Dye Catapult the Sox to Victory

July 26 at Detroit Tigers

"These ain't your daddy's White Sox... We're going to keep going after a championship as aggressively as we can."

KW's Hole Cards:
On a Draw
Despite being a little shaky, the relief pitching prevailed, solidifying a series victory.

Short Take:   John Danks pitched six innings of pretty good ball to earn the win, and he was helped out by his offense to boot.

After a dramatic, come-from-behind win in the ninth inning last night, the Sox hoped they could ride that momentum into tonight's game, and indeed it worked. John Danks pitched well, the offense showed up when it was needed the most, and the bullpen held on to the slimmest of margins, ensuring a 7-6 Sox victory and another series win against the Tigers.

Danks made one mistake in the second when he surrendered a solo homerun to Gary Sheffield, putting the Tigers up 1-0, but that lead was short-lived because the Sox went to work just half an inning later. The top of the third started with an Orlando Cabrera double to deep left, and he came around to score on A.J. Pierzynski's single, tying the game. The Carlos Quentin, who started the comeback last night, absolutely killed one to left, scoring Pierzynski and giving the Sox a 3-1 lead. Jermaine Dye, who put the Sox ahead last night with a clutch homerun, came to dish and knocked another one out of Comerica Park for the 4-1 South Side advantage.

The score remained 4-1 until the bottom of the fourth when Danks was a little shaky and the Tigers took advantage. Placido Polanco led off with a single and went to third on Carlos Guillen's double. Magglio Ordonez reached on an infield single, scoring Polanco and Guillen, and went to second on Alexei Ramirez's throwing error. It was a 4-3 ballgame and the Tigers looked to tie it. Miguel Cabrera also reached on an infield single, moving Ordonez over to third for Gary Sheffield. He grounded into a double play and Ordonez came in to score on the twin-killing, tying the game at four.

The tie score was short lived because the Sox went right back to work. A.J. led off with a single and went to second when TCQ walked. Leyland had seen enough and Justin Verlander was pulled in favor of Bobby Seay, who didn't fare much better. Jim Thome doubled to deep left, plating TCQ and moving Dye to third. With the Sox up 6-4, Nick Swisher came to plate and hit a deep fly ball to bring Dye in, giving the Sox a 7-4 lead.

In the bottom of the sixth, Magglio Ordonez went deep, making the score 7-5 in favor of the SOx. Things got interesting in the bottom of the seventh, but fortunately the Sox's bullpen prevailed. With DJ Carrasco having relieved Danks, he got Marcus Thames to ground out to Pierzynski, but Edgar Renteria singled. After Brandon Inge flied out to center, Ozzie went to Boone Logan, who's been shaky as of late. Logan's woes continued when he surrendered a base hit to Curtis Granderson, moving Renteria to third. Not wanting to take the chance of things getting worse, Ozzie went to his bullpen again, this time for Octavio Dotel. After Granderson swiped second, Dotel walked Placido Polanco to load 'em up. A wild pitch by Dotel scored Renteria and made it a 7-6 ballgame, but Dotel got Carlos Guillen to go down on strikes and preserved the one run Sox lead. Things got interesting in the bottom of the ninth when Bobby Jenks surrendered a double to Granderson, but he got Polanco on strikes for the 7-6 Sox victory!

Tomorrow afternoon, the Sox will look to add to their lead in the A.L. Central and will be in search of the three game sweep at Comerica Park. Javier Vazquez (7-8) will hopefully get himself back on track against Detroit's Zach Miner (4-3). The first pitch is set for 12:05p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WGN.

WSI's
Quest For the Final Table Update:
 Clutch hitting, good starting pitching, and solid bullpen pitching ensured a White Sox winner.
