Sox Avoid Sawx Sweep

April 29 vs. Boston Red Sox


Today's Sox Crew:
Refinishing
The Sox salvaged one of their home improvement projects, courtesy of Dunn and Floyd.

Short Take:   The towering home run down the right field line off the bat of Adam Dunn helped boost the Sox to a 4-1 victory.

On an afternoon that was more fit for an early-season football game, the Sox looked to salvage the last of the four-game series with the Boston Red Sox. A game time temperature of 46 degrees kept all but the die-hards home on this cloudy, breezy Sunday afternoon. But those who braved the elements were treated to a dazzling pitching performance by Gavin Floyd, who took a no-hitter into the seventh. This was a low-scoring contest with the right Sox coming out on top 4-1.

The Sox wasted no time in scoring off Boston's Josh Beckett (2-3). Alejandro De Aza led off the game with a base hit and was sacrificed to second by Brent Lillibridge. Alex Rios got himself a knock, as well, driving home De Aza with a single. Adam Dunn followed and got a hold of one that he tattooed down the right field line and landed 419' from home plate. All afternoon, Sox fans had the feeling that three would have to be enough because prior to the eighth inning, the Sox had but six hits off Beckett. However, they added an insurance run in the eighth off Rich Hill. With two on, Dayan Viciedo came through in the clutch (for a change) and notched his fourth RBI of the season, giving the Sox a 4-1 lead.

Gavin Floyd (2-3) was masterful in Sunday's outing. He began the game by retiring the first 14 Red Sox he'd faced; a two-out walk to Cody Ross ruined that streak. Floyd's dominance continued all the way to the seventh when two singles and a double accounted for the Red Sox only run of the ballgame. The hated Red Sox found themselves with 12 strikeouts on the afternoon, nine of which were courtesy of Floyd.

There's nothing like a win to make fans forget a five-game losing streak! The Sox finished April with an 11-11 record, which is a lot better than we've seen in recent memory during the inaugural month of the season. Monday is a well-deserved off day for the South Siders, who will continue their homestand on Tuesday night with the first of three games against the Cleveland Indians. Chris Sale (2-1, 3.12 ERA) will get the ball for the Sox and he'll duel it out with Ubaldo Jimenez (2-1, 4.50 ERA). The first pitch will be thrown at 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WCIU.
