Friday Night Beat Down!

June 16 at Toronto


Sox Office Smash Hit:
Kick Ass
Sox stomped the Blue Jays into submission.

Short Take: Sox offense went completely nuts and ended this one early.

AAAAAAAHHH! Now that was fun. As a diehard sports fan nothing really compares to your favorite team opening a can of whoop ass early in the game and cruising to victory. Friday night that's exactly what the Sox did in Toronto. Their dominance was so complete that they were up 4-0 after 1/2-inning, 7-0 after 1.5 and 11-2 after they batted in the 5th. Jose Quintana cruised for a solid seven innings yielding only the two runs - both on solo shots and the Sox went on to win 11-4.

As mentioned above, this one was fun and things got rolling early. The game in fact started with an infield single and stolen base by new acquisition Alex Hanson, who was starting for the very first time in centerfield. Melky Cabrera followed with a walk and Jose Abreu promptly drilled one off the right field wall that bounced back halfway to the infield for a triple to clear the bases and get the party started. After Avisail Garcia grounded out, Todd Frazier hit a sacrifice fly to score Abreu. Matt "Johnny Flame" Davidson then followed with a double and scored when the pitcher threw the ball away on Tim Anderson's infield single. That inning alone was enough to guarantee the Sox extra innings the way things played out but they weren't even close to being done. After the Blue Jays went quickly in their half courtesy of a double-play the Sox opened the second by having the first 5 men reach base. Yolmer Sanchez got things rolling with another infield single, Hanson followed with a single of his own and Melky came up and doubled them both home. Abreu followed with a double of his own an this game was all but over.

Jose Quintana started for the Sox and went seven strong innings. He got as many K as he gave up hits and only made two mistakes - solo shots in the second and third that did nothing to change the outcome or give Toronto any hope. Along the way he was helped by three double plays including a comeback liner he snagged before flipping to first for the uncommon 1-3 DP that ended the 7th. Jake Petrika relieved Jose in the 8th and forced a double play of his own to help the cause but he ran out of steam in the ninth and was pulled with 2-outs after giving up a 2-run bomb and another single. Omar Infante got the final out to seal the win and send Sox fans off with a smile on their faces.

Now you might be asking, but what about the rest of the runs the Sox scored. Well they weren't really necessary but they definitely helped demoralize the Blue Jays and make the game easier on all the Sox fans watching. In the 3rd Omar Narvaez led off with a double, moved to 3rd on a ground out and was driven in by Hanson - who finished the night with a very nice line of 3 hits in 4 at bats, a walk, a stolen base and 3 runs scored. The final three runs were scored on an absolute rocket by Melky Cabrera with two men on in the 5th. If you blinked you missed this one. It was a line drive down the leftfield line that left the park in under three seconds. That ball was scorched. That closed out the scoring for the Sox and put the cherry on the sundae that was last night's win.

Yeah it was a heck of a fun game for Sox fans and hopefully they can keep this hot offense going on the road trip. The second game of the series is Saturday at noon Chicago time. The Sox will be sending Mike Pelfry to the mound looking for his 3rd win, and if they bats keep hitting like they did tonight he should have no problem getting it.
