Buehrle Closes in on 200 Innings

September 21 at Cleveland

Hey, we won on Wednesday for a change!

Short Take: The White Sox left-hander picked up his 12th win of the season Wednesday night in Cleveland.

There are three things you can count on every season from White Sox left-hander Mark Buehrle: He'll make at least 30 starts. He'll throw at least 200 innings. He'll win at least 10 games.

Buehrle has cleared each of those benchmarks in each of the past 10 years. He's closing in on making it 11. Buehrle started his 30th game of the season Wednesday night and earned his 12th victory as the Sox defeated the Cleveland Indians 8-4.

Buehrle (12-9) fired six innings of two-run ball and has now thrown 198 1/3 innings this season. He'll need to toss 1 2/3 innings in his final start of the year -- Tuesday against Toronto -- in order to reach 200 for the 11th consecutive year.

The only blemish on Buehrle's performance Wednesday was a two-run homer by Travis Hafner that briefly gave Cleveland a 2-1 lead after six innings.

The Sox came right back in the top of the seventh inning with a three-spot of their own to put Buehrle in position for the win. Brent Morel's RBI double tied the game, and Alejandro De Aza came through with a two-out, two-run single to put the South Siders ahead 4-2.

Cleveland did the Sox a big favor in the eighth inning by bringing in washed-up right-hander Chad Durbin. The erstwhile Durbin served up meatball after meatball, and the Sox hitters knocked three of them out of the yard. Alexei Ramirez, Alex Rios and Morel all went deep during a four-run rally that increased the Sox advantage to 8-2.

The Indians scratched across two runs in the bottom of the eighth to make it 8-4, but the Sox were never seriously threatened the final two innings.

This four-game series will conclude Thursday night at 6:05. Phil Humber (9-8, 3.59 ERA) gets the start for the Sox. He'll be opposed by right-hander Jeanmar Gomez (4-2, 3.78 ERA). You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.
