Unearned Win

July 24 at Cleveland Indians


Levels Finished:
5
Courtesy of three Tribe errors, the Sox fired on all cylinders and dodged any fireballs that came their way.

Short Take:   Though he did not remember to throw a shutout, Edwin Jackson came through with a quality start.

For a change, another team made errors that cost them a ballgame! Sunday afternoon's contest between the White Sox and Indians at Progressive Field was a critical one for the Sox after having won the opening game of the series on Friday night. With Saturday night's game being washed out, a win in the finale would guarantee the South Siders an opportunity to gain a couple games on one of the two teams ahead of them in the standings. Edwin Jackson (7-7) pitched six innings of two-run ball and provided a good foundation, and with a couple of timely hits and three errors by the Indians, the Sox came out on top, 4-2, taking the series.

The key to this game was the gift runs that Cleveland gave to the Sox in the top of the sixth. After Justin Masterson (8-7) allowed a leadoff single to Omar Vizquel, he retired the next two. With Paul Konerko at the plate, Masterson decided to intentionally walk him so he could have a crack at Adam Dunn and his .160 average. With the score tied at one, what looked to be a routine flyout to center by The Big Donkey turned in to a two-base error by rookie centerfielder, Ezequiel Carrera, allowing both Vizquel and Konerko to score, putting the Sox in front, 3-1.

In classic White Sox fashion, they gave one of those two gift runs right back in the next half inning, courtesy of a Travis Hafner RBI single. The Sox were leading by the slimmest of margins, but regained their two-run lead in the top of the seventh. With one out, another Cleveland error -- this time by Asdrubal Cabrera -- allowed the second of the two automatic outs in the Sox lineup to reach base. Alex Rios then went to third on the second error of the inning, this time belonging to Carlos Santana. Making a rare offensive contribution, Mark Teahen drove Rios home with a base hit, giving the Sox a 4-2 lead.

The home half of the ninth was slightly interesting when Sergio Santos couldn't find the plate and walked the first hitter he faced on four pitches, but he eventually gained control and retired the Indians, nailing down the victory for Edwin Jackson.

The Sox finished this critical nine-game roadtrip 5-3, with Saturday's rainout to be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader during the September 20-22 series with the Tribe in Cleveland. Monday night will bring the Sox back home for a ten-game homestand, beginning with three against the division-leading Tigers. Mark Buehrle (7-5, 3.37 ERA) will take the ball for the South Siders and he'll oppose Detroit's Duane Below (0-0, 1.80 ERA). Though Sox fans don't know a thing about Mr. Below, the Sox hitters will likely show the same lack of knowledge. Greg Walker's boys won't know what to do with Cy Below, meaning it could be a long night at U.S. Cellular Field! The first pitch will be at 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on Comcast SportsNet.
