Big Win Opener!

April 1 at Seattle.  

Short take:  Had 'em all along!

Any Sox Fan who didn't have their heart skip a beat during this ballgame is either in great shape or simply wasn't paying attention.  The Sox fall behind, roar back to take a five run lead, then hang on by their finger nails for a terrific 6-5 victory.  Last year's 116-win Seattle Mariners lose their home opener at the hands of our beloved Pale Hose.

Only 161 more like this left to go!

Mark Buehrle was shaky early, pitching behind hitters and through jams in the early innings.  A solo shot dinger by ex-Sox strikeout machine Mike Cameron spotted the M's  the 1-0 lead.  As Sox Fans learned too often last year, homeruns don't mean much in the win column unless somebody is on base.  Seattle would pay dearly for that "mistake".

The Sox left runners on base in each of the first five innings.  Finally in the sixth, when Carlos Lee drilled one against the wall in left field to put put himself and Jose Valentin in scoring position.  Next up was Sandy Alomar who roped one into left to stake the Sox to the lead they would never relinquish.

For those of you who interested, that was the Sox' #6, #7, and #8 hitters supplying the offense.  That didn't happen too much in 2001.

The Sox busted it open in the seventh on Paul Konerko's one out double, scoring Ray Durham (who walked three times today!) and Magglio Ordonez.  It was 6-1 Pale Hose and Sox Fans were hoping the game would end as quickly as possible.

No such luck.  The Sox bullpen looked awful, and the defense wasn't much better, allowing four Seattle runs.  Keith Foulke allowed singles to the first two men he faced in the ninth, but still managed to preserve the one-run lead and hold on for the Sox victory.

Hey, those W's all look the same in the win column, eh Sox Fans?  Let's collect another 90 or so before this is over!

3 for 5 with a key 2-rbi double to break open the game in the seventh inning.  The Sox would need every bit of it to win this game!
