Uribe to the Rescue

September 5 vs. Angels

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

Current Sox Magic Number

Short Take:   Juan goes Profundo twice; Buehrle brings his A-game.

In a day that might go down as one of the darkest in the 2008 season due to TCQ‘s season ending wrist injury, Juan Uribe shined a ray of light and some hope on the White Sox season. With two home runs by Uribe and backed by an outstanding effort by starting pitcher Mark Buehrle, the Sox destroyed the AL West-leading Angels by a score of 10-2. The win kept the White Sox AL Central lead at 1.5 games over Minnesota while reducing their magic number to 21.

The Sox got on the board early by scoring two runs in the bottom of the first off LAA starter Dustin Moseley. Ken Griffey Jr gave the Sox the early 2-0 lead by driving in AJ and Dye with a two-out single up the middle. In the bottom of the 2nd, Uribe hit the first of his two homers, driving in Swish who had reached base on a walk, and giving the Pale Hose a 4-0 lead.

In the bottom of the 3rd, the Sox added on to their lead as Paul Konerko continued his hot hitting with a solo homer. Konerko batted .333 in August and is batting .500 in September so far. With two outs in the third, it was like déjà vu (all over again, says Tom Paciorek). Swish walked, and once again he was driven in by a Juan Uribe blast into the leftfield stands, giving the Sox a 7-0 lead.

Mark Buehrle cruised through the first six innings before Ozzie took him out. Buehrle scattered three hits and only walked two while striking out seven. Buehrle looked outstanding in his quality start and was in line for the victory with the game well at hand. Alexei Ramirez helped increase the Sox lead in the bottom of the sixth with a 2-run base hit to drive in Konerko and Thome, putting the Sox ahead 9-0 lead.

DJ Carrasco struggled in the top of the 7th and gave up two runs to the Angels, in part due to walking the 9th place hitter for LAA. Gary Matthews Jr scored on a Chone Figgins base hit and DeWayne Wise error, while Sean Rodriguez scored on a Garrett Anderson single, cutting the Sox lead to 9-2. Scott Linebrink returned from his injury to pitch a solid 8th inning while throwing mostly fastballs up to the plate and letting the Angels put the ball in play. Behind him, Ozzie had replaced most of the starters with the Charlotte September call ups.

The Sox tacked on one more run in the bottom of the 8th before Horacio Ramirez came in to close out LAA in the 9th. Sox win 10-2, Buehrle (12-11) gets the victory, Moseley gets the loss (1-4), 23 games left, Sox with a 1.5 game lead and two-up in the loss column.
