Flowers Power

May 2 at Texas


Today's Game Rating:
5
Hector Santiago pitched a gem and Tyler Flowers got him the win.

Short Take:   Tyler Flowers launches a three-run homer to lead Sox to a win

Ah winning. It is a wonderful thing. And the White Sox did just that tonight as they took the series against the Texas Rangers, winning tonight's game 3-1.

Jake Peavy was supposed to make the start tonight, but he was scratched with back spasms. Hopefully it's not a serious injury, and he's able to make his next start. Since Peavy was scratched, Hector Santiago was bumped up a start, and he had a great game. He pitched 5.1 innings, and he gave up just one run on two hits and two walks. His one run came off a solo home run by Adrian Beltre in the second inning.

Matt Lindstrom finished off the sixth inning by striking out both batters he faced. He faced one batter that he walked before Matt Thornton came on for the seventh and pitched a perfect inning. Jesse Crain came on for the eighth and allowed a walk and a hit to make it interesting, but neither runner scored. Addison Reed picked up his tenth save of the season. He walked two batters but recorded all three outs via the strikeout.

The offense had a decent night. Alex Rios, Paul Konerko and Casper Wells were the only ones who didn't pick up a hit. Alejandro De Aza and Alexei Ramirez each picked up two hits. But it was Tyler Flowers' one hit tonight that was the difference in getting Santiago his first win this season and giving Justin Grimm his first loss of the season. Flowers launched his fourth home run of the season, a three-run shot off Grimm in the sixth inning.

Dylan Axelrod is going for his first win of the season as the Sox travel to Kansas City. He's picked up four no-decisions this season despite relatively good pitching performances. He faces off against Jeremy Guthrie who has the longest current undefeated streak in the majors. In his last 16 starts, the Royals are 14-2, and Guthrie is 8-0. Here's hoping the Sox can get to him.

WSI's
