Pre-Game Report

Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

In Chicago baseball today, a 22 year-old pitcher with nearly two years of major league experience pitches a one-hitter into the ninth inning, to beat a first-place team and lift his own team into a tie for first-place.

Meanwhile, the other team, struggling to stay out of last-place, gets its first-ever victory from a 21 year-old, pitching six innings against the most anemic line up in major league baseball, capable of only scoring a pathetic 154 runs so far this year.

Sox Fans, you know all too well who will lead the sports coverage on channels 2, 5, 7, and 9.  The less said the better about the vipers editing the two major sports dailies.  Let's just say it's all too predictable.

The first-place White Sox take 2 of 3 over the first-place Red Sox in Fenway Park.  It's a team that has won 30 games, the best record in baseball.  Jon Garland sawed through them for eight straight innings.  Your heart breaks to know he's completely eclipsed by hometown journalists and editors who will smile and sincerely assert their objectivity and unbiased views. 

The lead stories and front page headlines don't lie, but these slime balls most definitely do.

If the Sox are coming home Friday, isn't it time to get more footage of the empty blue seats?  Mark Giangreco, start thinking up the punch line!

Jon Garland was brilliant.  He retired the first ten men he faced.  A one out double allowed in the fourth came to nothing.  He didn't allow another baserunner until the ninth.  Not one single walk through 8+ innings--not one!

The Sox squeaked out just enough offense to give Garland what he needed.  Royce Clayton's leadoff single in the third was enough for the Sox offense to push him across the plate on a Ray Durham groundout.  An rbi single by Paul Konerko brought home Ray Durham in the sixth.

Garland had only made 78 pitches, so Manuel gave him the ninth inning.  The kid faded, allowing back-to-back hits.  No problem!  Keith Foulke retired the next three hitters in a row and nailed down the win, picking up his seventh save.

This was easily the best pitching performance of the entire season.  It came on the road, playing the best team in baseball, to win the series 2 games to 1.  It put the Sox back into first-place with the Minnesota Twins.  It's May 22 and Chicago has a first-place baseball team.  We're on our way.

Sox Fans, count on nothing from the Chicago media.  Be happy with whatever scraps we get.

You know we'll keep track of all the frontrunners for you right here.  You can take that to the bank!

Jon Garland

Eight innings of one-hit shutout baseball.  Four strikeouts and no walks.  He threw just 84 pitches into the ninth inning.  His effort is destined to be all but ignored by Chicago's media.  That's life for first-place baseball teams and their fans in Chicago.
