 2000 CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

Valentin Hits for Cycle!

(April 27, 2000)

Fight?  What fight?  On a glorious spring afternoon in Chicago, the streaking Chicago White Sox methodically picked apart one of the best teams in baseball, the Baltimore Orioles, winning the game (13-4) the series (3 games to 1) and the homestand (9 wins, 3 losses).  So who really cares about a bunch of bush league Tiger Turds?

They're next on our list.  The sooner we wipe our butts of them, the better.

Everybody in a Sox uniform contributed to the victory, but Jose Valentin's performance stands out, only the fifth player in 100 seasons of Sox baseball to ever hit for the cycle.  Valentin singled in the first, doubled in the second (scoring Greg Norton), tripled in the third (driving in three more runs), and punctuated the entire day with a magnificent home run in the seventh inning.  In a classy move, his Sox teammates stayed in the dugout and allowed Jose to take his position at shortstop by himself to a standing ovation from Comiskey's Sox fans at the top of the eighth inning.  He finished the day 4 for 5 with five rbi's and two runs scored.  Congratulations!

Can you believe we got this guy for Jaime Navarro?

Paul Konerko also homered leading off the top of the second inning in which the Sox scored three runs to capture  the lead which they would never relinquish.  Frank Thomas was 1 for 2 with one rbi.  Most impressively, Orioles manager Mike Hargrove intentionally walked Frank in the second and the third inning.  Now that's respect!  How many times do you suppose Mark Grace has ever been so honored?  (LOL)

Jim Parque went 6-2/3rd innings for his third win of the season.  He allowed four runs and eight hits in a laugher of a game.  Sean Lowe was effective in 1-1/3 innings work, as was Tanyon Sturtze pitching in the ninth.  The team received another standing ovation to end the game and the most successful homestand in recent memory.

So it's off to Detroit to deal with the scum that grows in the hard to get to corners of a toilet bowl.  Phil Garner and the Tiger Turds await in major league baseball's newest bush league park.

Get ready to strap it down!

Back to 2000 Champions!
