Sox Rock Verlander

July 15 at Detroit

Sox Are On a Roll!

Short Take:   White Sox pound Detroit to open up the 2nd half of the season. Miguel Cabrera records his 1,500* career hit (* not counting hits of his wife).

After a relaxing All-Star Break, the White Sox bats came alive Friday night against one of the best pitchers in the game, giving Justin Verlander just his fifth loss of the season in an 8-2 defeat. Gavin Floyd earned the win for the ‘Hose with 7.2 innings of great pitching, only giving up two runs. With the loss, Detroit falls to one game out while the Sox remain five games behind Cleveland (who defeated Baltimore tonight).

The Sox lit up Verlander for four runs in the top of the third to take the early lead. Gordon Beckham, Mark Teahen and Juan Pierre reached based with three consecutive singles, with Pierre’s hit being a squeeze bunt to score Beckham from third when Miggy Cabrera bobbled the ball. After a walk to Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn came up with a huge two rbi single to give the Sox a 3-0 lead. Carlos Quentin continued the assault on the Tigers with a single to right to score Konerko for a 4-0 White Sox lead.

The Tigers cut the lead in half in the 4th with Gavin Floyd’s only real mistake of the night. After Mags Ordonez reached first on a dropped third strike, Cabrera blasted a homer, his 1,499 career hit, to make the score 4-2. Cabrera would go on to get his 1,500 career hit later in the game. Nobody could give an accurate statistic to the number of times he has hit his wife though.

The Sox added a run in the 5th when Juan Pierre reached on error, moved to third on the Cuban Missile’s double and eventually scored on a groundout by Carlos Quentin. Break up the Sox, because the scoring didn’t end there. They added three more runs in the 7th when Quentin again earned an RBI with a single to score Paul Konerko, while Gordon Beckham knocked in two runs with a base hit of his own.

The Sox bullpen worked out of a jam in the 8th when Floyd allowed two Tigers to reach and the Brian Bruney walked the bases loaded. Will Ohman came on to turn Victor Martinez around to the right side and struck him out on a pitch over Victor’s head.
