Konerko striving for wins, not hits

CHICAGO -- The bump on Paul Konerko's head was already starting to show itself a few minutes after he had been hit by a Kerry Wood pitch, and a short while later it was in full bloom.

"It just kind of sprung up there," Konerko said. "I figured it wouldn't happen with a helmet."

The beaning served as a fulcrum for the Chicago White Sox in their 13-9 victory over the Chicago Cubs, a game in which the Sox trailed 8-0 when Konerko came to the plate in the fourth inning with one out and nobody on.

Wood had displayed fairly good control before he threw an 0-1 curveball that was way inside to Konerko, who was able to duck but not low enough for the ball to miss clanking off his helmet.

"I couldn't focus in," Konerko said of his immediate response. "I was looking down in the dirt and everything was twitching left and right. One of those jobs. It just took about 30 seconds and back to normal. That was it."
