Sox Drown Land of 10,000 Losers

May 19 vs. Minnesota Twins


KW's Daily Special:
Slim Jim beef jerky
It's easy to snap into it when Big Jim leads the way.

Short Take:Mark Buehrle and "home run" ball helped pull our Sox out of the doldrums they experienced on their previous road trip. Our Sox returned home and tripled up the Minnesota Twins 6-2.

As long as they can keep away from the trashy place known as the Baggie Dome, the place of horrors giving the Minnesota Twins an unfair advantage over any opponent, our Sox seem to have great fortunes against their Central Division rival. After a depressing road trip to Cleveland and Toronto, where our Palehose finished 1-5, they returned home and gave us fans something to smile about, getting the best of Scott Baker and his Twinkies 6-2.

The meat of the order did most of the work on the scoreboard. Just a couple frames in, Big Jim lead off with a free pass and immediately came home on a round-tripper hit by Paul Konerko. AJ Pierzynski promptly singled, advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch, and was doubled home by The Cuban Missile on a liner to right center. Crooked numbers are a beauty when our Sox are putting them up. 3-0 Sox was the score after 2 frames.

Both Mark Buehrle and Baker went to work for a few more frames before the scoreboard displayed any changes. In the bottom of the 5th and the top of the 6th, JD and Joe Mauer traded 1-out solo shots, which maintained our 3-run lead 2/3 of the way through the game.

Buehrle wasn't very flustered until the 7th inning came around. After Michael Cuddyer doubled to lead off the inning, Mike Redmond reached on a throwing error by Josh Fields that pulled Konerko way off first base, advancing Cuddyer in the process. Cuddyer did score on Nick Punto's flyout to JD; but JD whipped the ball directly to Chris Getz, catching Redmond in a rundown between Getz and Konerko. Getz easily tagged out Redmond to end the inning with minimal damage allowed.

Speedy Scott Podsednik showed off his wheels in the last of the 7th frame, as he led off with a single up the middle and promptly stole 2nd base. JD trotted to 1st on a "ball 4 base hit," and both came home on a wicked double by Big Jim, which completed the scoring. Hopefully more of the same will come out of the middle game in this series, a battle of southpaws (John Danks and Francisco Liriano). Same time, same place, different channel (WCIU).

WSI's
Critic's Corner:
Give this one five stars: One for putting their horrendous road trip behind them and winning their first game back home, one for Konerko's homer, one for Dye's homer, one for the speed of Scott Podsednik, and one for the greatness of Jim Thome.
