And They Said It Couldn't Be Done

August 6th vs. the Minnesota Twins


Levels Finished:
5
The ladders were ascended, led by Zach Stewart's tight pitching and by the Sox' ability to dodge barrels on the left and fireballs on the right.

Short Take:With uncharacteristic aplomb the Sox beat the ice-fishing representatives 6-1 behind Zach Stewart's sharp pitching debut.

Some of us are lucky enough to witness rare and astounding events. Things like a talking dog, a blue moon, or Britney Spears carrying a tune are all things that even if you saw it you might doubt yourself and want to get it confirmed.

Such an event occurred tonight in Minneapolis as the White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 6-1, marking two in a row. Against the Twins. In Minnesota. I would have believed the talking dog before I would've believed this.

Zach Stewart, the former Blue Jay who came to the Sox as part of the Mark Teahen farewell party, started for the Sox and did what needed to be done. He pitched 6-1/3 innings, giving up one run while scattering eight hits, earning his first win. He looked good, challenging hitters and inducing a lot of ground balls. Against the Twins...did I mention that the Sox won two in a row up there?

Twinkie starter Carl Pavano, who has abandoned his Groucho Marx disguise, went eight innings and got the loss. He only gave up two runs, one earned, but I'm not going to waste my energy feeling sorry for him after the Sox won two in a row. Against the Twins.

The Bridgeport Boys got the first numbers on the wall in the fifth inning. Brent Morel walked, Juan Pierre singled, and playing-with-pain Paul Konerko singled to drive Morel home. Shortly thereafter, Pierre stole third and a bad throw by Drew Butera skipped into left field and allowed Pierre to score, making it 2-0 Sox.

The piranhas came back in the sixth. Jason Kubel, who seems to have the Sox for lunch, led off with a single, followed by a Jim Thome double. Danny Valencia singled, scoring Kubel. Now it's 2-1 Sox and the nail-chewing began in earnest.

But that was it until the top of the ninth, and what a lovely time that was! Glen Perkins came in to pitch and gave up a single to Alejandro De Aza, who then stole second while another wild throw by Butera dribbled into center field. Juan Pierre walked, and that was enough for the ya-hey-dere guys as Joe Nathan trotted in. This is not your father's Joe Nathan, though, and he threw a wild pitch that advanced the runners. Another wild throw by Butera let De Aza score. Konerko then got the prototypical productive out, grounding 6-3 as the runners were moving, which scored Pierre.

But there's more! Brent Lillibridge was in for Adam Dunn at first as a defensive replacement and came to bat with Paulie on base. Lillibridge homered, hitting a just-enough fly ball that bounced on top of the left-field wall. Hoo-hah! Now it's 6-1 Sox in the ninth. Against the Twins.

Sergio Santos pitched the ninth and made short work of the suddenly-toothless piranhas. I don't know...the White Sox looked like frightened pups against the New York Nabobs last week, and now they face their greatest nemeses and win two in a row. Convincingly. Against the Twins.

Britney can't really sing and dogs can't really talk, can they?

"Hey! We got the piranhas' number. Two! Hah!"
