Jackson wins his Sox debut

Aug. 4 at Detroit


Immunity:
Carlos Quentin
Exiled:
A.J. Pierzynski

Quentin's home run gave you the feeling this was going to be a good night for the Sox. Our starting catcher, meanwhile, went 0 for 4 and continued to make weak outs.

Short Take: The newly-acquired right-hander pitched into the eighth inning and lifted the Sox to a 4-1 victory.

By all accounts, Edwin Jackson had a 5.16 ERA this season as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks because of his lack of control. Fortunately, no such problem was on display Wednesday night as Jackson made his debut in a White Sox uniform.

The hard-throwing right-hander walked just one and allowed only one run in seven-plus innings, leading the Sox to a 4-1 victory over the Tigers. Jackson allowed nine hits, including eight over the first five innings, but he struck out six and showed a knack for pitching out of jams. Detroit stranded 11 baserunners on the night.

Carlos Quentin and Paul Konerko provided all the offense the Sox would need. Konerko had an RBI single in the first inning and added a solo home run in the sixth. Quentin provided the biggest hit of the night, a mammoth two-run homer off Detroit starter Armando Galarraga (3-4) in the fourth.

Quentin's blast cleared the first tier of seats beyond the left field bullpens at Comerica Park. It was estimated to have traveled 430 feet.

The Sox also received good bullpen work from Matt Thornton and Bobby Jenks. Thornton entered in the eighth inning with runners on second and third and one out. With the tying run at the plate, he induced an infield pop out from Ryan Raburn and struck out Jeff Frazier to preserve a 4-1 lead. Jenks worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his 23rd save.

With the win, the Sox have taken two out of the first three games in this series. They'll try for a series win Thursday afternoon behind right-hander Freddy Garcia (10-4, 4.73 ERA). Right-hander Max Scherzer (7-8, 4.28 ERA) is pitching for the Tigers. The game begins at noon. If you're not working, you can watch on WGN.

TBGR Diary:
For all our Jenks-haters in the audience, the closer has retired the side in order in each of his last three outings.
