All is Fien on the South Side!

July 24 vs. Minnesota Twins


Today's Sox Crew:
Change Order
It was looking like the house plans were going to yeild an ugly house. But, a change order was created just in time, turning a shack into a mansion.

Short Take:Casey does a Fien job in giving back this game to the South Siders! He and his bullpen decided they wanted to give up batting practice to our Palehose tonight.

In years past, our Palehose have been on the receiving end of many lop-sided affairs against the Minnesota Twins. Since the second half of last season, however, our fortunes have been a lot better against them. Taking 5 of the first 7 contests with the Twins this season, the Sox were set to face Cole DeVries for the second time this season. If you have a short memory (which I can understand, as all of our brains are being fried here in this relentlessly hot summer), DeVries was tattooed exactly two months ago at this very same beautiful ballpark on the south side of Chicago that most hardcore Sox fans still call Comiskey Park. The Sox scored 11 runs that night, and they scored the same number of runs tonight! Your final: Sox 11, Twins 4.

The Good Guys got on the board very early, as they inked an unearned run in the opening frame. With ducks on the pond (Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko), Brian Dozier launched a doozy over to first base, pulling Joe Mauer off the bag and allowing Alex Rios to make it safely on base while getting in Dunn.

That 1-0 Sox lead lasted until the 4th inning, when Josh Willingham launched a 419-foot bomb to the batter's eye off of our starter, Jose Quintana, knotting the score at 1. Things could have been worse, but Dyan Viciedo showed his cannon of a throwing arm, as he gunned down Justin Morneau, who was trying to leg out a double on a rocket hit near the wall. How great it is to see great defensive hustle by our Sox! It's been years since we've seen a team so defensively-sound as this one! The one run would be all the Twins would score in that inning.

Konerko was sure to put the Sox back up just after the halfway mark of the game, as he hit a 2-out home run that just cleared the wall in left center. It appeared as if Willingham had caught it, but it just missed his glove and landed into the first row or two!

Rewind to years past: There always seemed to be a guy on the Twins who took over games night in night out. Willingham tried to be that guy tonight, as he launched his second blast of the night, a 3-run shot in the top of the 6th, putting the Twins up 4-2.

It would seem as if things were piling on our Sox in the bottom of the 7th, as Alejandro DeAza hit a flyball that Darin Mastroianni trapped. The umpire first saw it as that way, but he reversed his call soon afterwards, calling DeAza out!

Teams of years past would mail it in after facing a shade of adversity in a game. But, not the 2012 White Sox! It seems as if, whenever they get hit in the face, they play with a chip on their shoulder. The next seven Sox' batters would reach base, thanks to the Twins' bullpen (Tyler Robertson and Fien). With Kevin Youkilis aboard, Dunn hit his 30th round-tripper of the season about 2/3 of the way up from the first row. Viciedo knocked in two of his own runs before the frame ended. "It's all good!" exclaimed the great Hawk Harrelson.

The 6-4 Sox lead amassed to 11-4 after a 5-run 8th, which included a 2-run bomb into the Sox' bullpen by The Cuban Missile. Minnesota got nothing except for the satisfaction that they are now 2-6 against our Palehose this season. How do 'dem apples taste, Twinks? The Sox look to go for the sweep tomorrow, and it might be possible, as crappy Nick Blackburn is set to take the mound against our Jake Peavy. It's a day game, folks! Different time (1:10), same place, different channel (CSN).
