Big O rolls!

April 6 at Kansas City.  

Short take:  Finally, a laugher!

Is there anything more glorious than a blowout victory for a Sox Fan?  After 84+ years of losing, losing, losing, you can hardly blame Sox Fans for being a bit of a fretful lot.  Scoring early and often in a game like this saves us from our own nature.  14-0 Sox.  Savor it, Sox Fans!

Once again, the top of the line up was working.  Both Kenny Lofton and Ray Durham reached base to start the game.  Sox Fans felt the slightest twitch of stomach acid when Frank Thomas popped out for what seems like the millionth time this season.  That's as close to distress Sox Fans would feel all day.

Before the full blown ulcer could start, Magglio Ordonez stroked a single to right, scoring Lofton.  The Sox had the lead and would never look back.

The Sox scored two more times in the first, spotting starter Mark Buehrle a 3-0 lead before he threw his first pitch.  The Sox ace would cruise through six shutout innings scattering five hits, walking three and striking out four.  The kid southpaw is 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA.  You gotta love those numbers, Sox Fans!

Meanwhile the Sox were blowing up Royals pitching and taking advantage of some truly awful execution.  Ray Durham and Magglio Ordonez did a reprise of their baserunning misadventures from yesterday's game.  In the fifth inning both were trapped off base again, but this time the Royals managed to botch the tag outs and each advanced a base!

The sun is truly shining today, isn't it Sox Fans?

Ordonez and Sandy Alomar each collected three hits and a homer each.  All the starters collected at least one hit (save for #9 Royce Clayton) and Lofton and Durham each had multi-hit days plus a stolen base.  The big Sox "O" was hitting on all cylinders.  Thirdbasemen Jose Valentin chipped in some solid defense to help Buehrle, too.

Kansas City simply melted in the face of all of this.  In the eighth, with the game already decided, the Sox received 16 straight balls to drive in a run.  That was some kind of ugly for Royals fans to endure.

Sox Fans reply, "We've more than earned our karma.  Tough luck."

Rubber game Sunday afternoon.
