Konerko plunks Cubs as Sox win, 13-9

Paul Konerko would be the first to admit he has a pretty hard head.

But not even Konerko could have imagined a curveball bounced off his noggin could change the complexion of a ballgame, if not a season.

After Cubs starter Kerry Wood hit him in the helmet, Konerko bounced back to hit two home runs and lead the White Sox from an eight-run deficit to a stunning 13-9 victory Friday before 46,027 at Comiskey Park.

Konerko enjoyed his second straight four-hit game and his fourth multihomer game since June 11. Though he had a bump on his head the size of a walnut after ducking into a Wood pitch in the fourth, Konerko wouldn't come out.

"He's the type of guy that this type of stage he thrives on," manager Jerry Manuel said.

The Sox trailed 8-2 in the fifth when Konkero cranked a two-run homer off Wood to make it an 8-4 game. In the sixth he reached Joe Borowski for a two-run blast to give the Sox a 10-8 lead.

The Sox were numb—comfortably—after their most impressive triumph to date.

"Everyone is to the point where you're just sick of being average," Konerko said. "For the last year and a half we've been mediocre. It's the same guys, and we're tired of it."
