Balanced Attack Leads to Win

April 10th at Cleveland


Today's temperature:
65
"Nice early season series win in Cleveland. The team came out focused and ready to play. Hopefully the Motor City Kitties will sleepwalk though another weekend."

Short Take:  Sox grab early lead and cruise to victory.

  • Unlike yesterday’s game, this time the White Sox grabbed the lead early on and never looked back. The Sox scored 5 runs in the first inning to jump out to an early lead and then sat back while Sox ace Mark Buehrle shut down the Indians all night long. With Buehrle given a quick 5 run lead, Sox fans didn't have a reason to worry about the outcome of this game until Tom Gordon came in. But when it was all said and done, it was an easy 7-2 win for the Sox giving the Sox the series win. It was great to see the White Sox offense come out firing today!
  • Thanks for nothing “Flash”! The Sox entered the bottom of the 8th inning with a comfortable 7-1 lead as most Sox fans were getting ready to mark this one down as a win. But when Jerry Manuel went to the bullpen and brought in Gordon, Sox fans were given a scare. Gordon walked 2 and allowed 1 hit to load the bases with only 1 out. Manuel brought in Damaso Marte but he didn't fare too well in his first batter. Marte walked the first batter he faced which made the score 7-2 with the bases still loaded. At this point it was starting to seem as if we might see another collapse. Fortunately, Marte went to work and struck out the next two batters to end the inning. A quick 1-2-3 (and I do mean quick because we didn't even get the see the first out thanks to the “U”) in the 9th and the Sox completed their 5th win.
  • Unlike previous Sox games this year, this game featured many positive performances by Sox players. Perhaps the best offensive performance of tonight’s game was by Magglio Ordonez. Ordonez was 2 for 5 with 2 runs and 2 RBI. His big shot came in the 5th inning when Maggs greeted Terry Mulholland with an opposite field HR. The umpire initially messed up the call and signaled a double. But after some deliberation by the umpires, they got the call right (which is what really matters) and signaled a HR for Ordonez. Magglio also singled in the first driving in the 1st of the Sox 7 runs.
  • How hot is Sandy Alomar right now? Alomar went 3 for 3 today and drove in 2 runs. The game increased Alomar’s average to a very impressive .529. Also worth noting, Joe Crede had another hit today and is now hitting .314 on the year. Armando Rios, starting for Aaron Rowand, had 2 hits, 2 RBI, and scored a run. Overall, it was a good night for the Sox offense…something Sox fans look forward to seeing more often.
  • The Sox didn't need many runs tonight though thanks to the outing by Mark Buehrle. Buehrle looked impressive yet again as he went 7 innings and allowed only 1 run. Granted Buehrle isn't doing this against the cream of the crop, but a 1.23 ERA through 3 starts is still impressive. With the win Buehrle improves to 2-1 on the young season having allowed only 3 runs in 22 innings.
  • Sox fans, it sure is nice to not have to worry about the Indians, isn't it? After years of the Indians dominating the division they are now simply just another team. No more Jim Thome to pound Sox pitching. Bartolo Colon is now on our side. Now if they could just get rid of Omar Vizquel. O, and that moron drum guy.
  • The Sox are now 5-4 on the season and start a series at Detroit tomorrow against the pathetic 0-8 Tigers. It would seem that the Tigers are due for a win, but with that team they really shouldn’t be due for a win all year long. Let’s hope the Sox don't become the first team to fall to the Tigers! Esteban Loaiza (I promise, this time) will take the first shot at keeping the Tigers winless tomorrow evening at 6:05 CST. Adam Bernero will pitch for the Tigers
