Sox Score Early and Often

April 13 at Cleveland Indians

That escalated quickly

Short Take:  Back to .500 and a winning streak to boot

The Sox took the rubber match against against the Cleveland Indians, handily defeating the defending American League Champs who choked away a 3-1 World Series lead for which I will never forgive them by a final score of 10-4.

The Sox offense got off to a quick start tonight, with Tim Anderson taking Cleveland righty Josh Tomlinís very first pitch of the game to deep left field for a leadoff home run. That solo shot was to set the table for a very productive first inning that would see all nine Sox batters. With Cody Asche on second and Avi Garcia on first, Matt Davidson drove the first pitch he saw to right field for a 3-run homer. Yolmer Sanchez doubled a 3-1 to cutter to right field and came around to score on an Omar Narvaez single. Leury Garcia would ground out to end the inning but not before the Sox put up a nice crooked number.

The Indians got one of those runs back off Sox righty Miguel Gonzalez, who got into the first of a few jams for the night. With one out and the bases loaded, Jose Ramirez drove in Francisco Lindor on a sac fly to deep right. Lonnie Chisenhall flied out to left to end the inning with the Sox leading 5-1.

The Sox picked up two more runs in the top of the second, with Melky reaching on a walk and Jose Abreu on a single. Both would come home on an Avi Garcia single to center, ending Josh Tomlinís evening and extending the Sox lead to 7-1.

Gonzalez pitched out of a jam in the top of the fourth, giving up a walk and single but striking out Gomes and Santana to end the threat. Miguel however wasnít as fortunate in the bottom of the fifth, giving up two Cleveland runs before being pulled. Anthony Swarzak came on in relief and ended the threat with the Sox leading 7-3.

The score would remain the same until the top of the 8th, when the Sox would score three more off five singles. The Indians got one of those runs back off a Yan Gomes solo homer in their half of the 8th. With the game out of reach, Cleveland utility fielder Michael Martinez came in to pitch the top of the ninth and didnít look all that bad, giving up a Leury Garcia double and three groundouts. Tommy Kahnle came in to pitch an uneventful bottom of the 9th for the Sox to close out the victory.

The story of the night was the Sox offense, which collected 10 runs on 15 hits, with every Sox batter getting at least one hit. Avi Garcia led the charge going 3-for-4 with 3 RBIs. Tonightís victory gives the Sox their first series win of the young season as they bring their 2-game winning streak into Minnesota.
