JERRY'S HEAD

The Sox offense was hardly overpowering again, but it hardly mattered in this one.  Danny Wright is the first of three young Sox starting pitchers to pass his test in this key stretch early in the 2002 season.  Wright pitches a complete game five-hit shutout to lead the Sox to a 4-0 victory over Texas at Comiskey.  Our beloved Pale Hose take the series and now wait for the arrival of our newest dear friends, those monkey-spanking nobodies from Anaheim.

Oh boy, we owe these guys!

With the offense stalled, pressure has been building for the young starters, Wright, Jon Garland, and Gary Glover, to step up and show some consistency.  Wright answered Thursday's challenge in a most definitive manner.  The other two must get the job done against the red-hot Angels.

Wright dueled Kenny Rogers in a scoreless tie through the first four innings.  He induced a double-play grounder to end a threat in the fourth.  His teammates immediately answered back when Paul Konerko doubled, and Carlos Lee batted him in to spot Wright a 1-0 lead.

Can you believe it, Sox Fans?  That's all Danny needed!

Wright got another double-play grounder to end the fifth inning, and then set it on cruise control.  He would face just thirteen batters the remainder of the way, one over the minimum.  He lowered his 6.59 ERA by over a point with the effort.

Sox hitters gave Wright a bit of a cushion in the sixth.  This was classic little ball.  It started by stringing together three infield hits.  Next came a bases loaded rbi walk by Konerko, a second run scoring on Carlos Lee's fielder's choice, and finally a solid rbi single by Tony Graffannino.  Three runs scored on only one well-hit baseball.  Gotta love that!

The Sox figure to need a bit more offense than that against the Angels.  Let's hope the bats return for some big-time revenge!
