Can We Play Boston More Often?

The Sox were both dodging fireballs and hitting knuckleballs in this game.

Short Take: The White Sox continue their thorough domination of the Wrong Sox at Fenway Park.

If only the White Sox could play all their games against the Boston Red Sox, they might go 162-0! OK, maybe not, but it's clear the South Siders have Boston's number.

The Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Beantowners Wednesday afternoon with a 7-4 victory in Boston. With the win, the Sox have now won seven straight games at Fenway Park dating back to 2009. Overall, the good guys are 13-2 in their last 15 matchups with ESPN's favorite team.

Wednesday's game came down to the late innings, and Sox captain Paul Konerko got the job done offensively. With the score tied 4-4 and runners on the corners with one out in the top of the seventh, Konerko ripped a single down the left field line off Boston loser Matt Albers (1-3) to put the Sox ahead to stay at 5-4.

For good measure, Konerko blasted a tape-measure home run well over The Green Monster in left field in the ninth. The two-run shot off overrated Boston crybaby Jonathan Papelbon was Konerko's 12th of the season and it gave the Sox the final margin of victory.

Konerko finished the day 3-for-4 with three RBIs, but the Sox got key contributions from several other players as well. Alexei Ramirez continued his hot hitting by going 3-for-5 with three runs scored. The Sox shortstop went 9-for-14 in the three-game set and scored six runs. Brent Lillibridge added a solo home run -- his sixth of the season -- and an RBI double that just missed clearing The Monster. Carlos Quentin also had a two-hit day that included an RBI double.

The 12-hit attack was enough support for Gavin Floyd (6-5), who made a nice recovery after a shaky start. The Sox right-hander gave up three runs on seven hits over the first two innings. But over the next 4 2/3 innings, he allowed only a solo home run to HGH poster child David Ortiz.

When Floyd finally ran out of gas in the seventh, the Sox got good bullpen work. Chris Sale retired all four hitters he faced - and they weren't just any four hitters. Adrian Gonzalez, Kevin Youkilis, Ortiz and Carl Crawford are the best Boston has to offer. Sale set them down in order. That got the ball to closer Sergio Santos, who worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances.

The Sox concluded this very difficult 10-game trip with a respectable 5-5 record. At long last, they get an off day Thursday before a 10-game homestand begins Friday night against the Detroit Tigers. The Sox will send Mark Buehrle (4-4, 3.91 ERA) to the hill. The Tigers will counter with left-hander Andy Oliver (0-0, 4.50 ERA). Game time is 7:10. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

Stupid JB98 thinks Greg Walker should be fired. Look at what Walk has done for Lillibridge!
