Garland Dominates!

May 28th at Toronto


Today's temperature:
95
"Not that Jerry did anything in this game that any other manager couldn't do, but Garland's outing helps Jerry breath a little bit easier.."

Short Take:  Jon Garland pitches brilliantly to give the Sox their first win of the road trip.

  • Will the real Jon Garland please stand up? Those Sox fans who had the courage to tune into tonightís game were treated to a great pitching performance by Garland against one of the best offenses in baseball. The Sox bats came alive late to put away the game as the Sox won 8-0. Sox fans, this sure makes you wish we could see more of this out of Garland doesnít it?
  • But forget about the Sox offense for a moment because the shock of this game came from the arm of Jon Garland. Garland pitched 8 innings of shutout baseball allowing 5 hits, striking out 6, and not walking a single hitter! And while the final score might indicate otherwise, this was a close game for the most part. Garland pitched all 8 innings with no more than a 2 run cushion but still dominated Blue Jays hitters.
  • The Sox offense did not give Garland much run support for the most part. Of the 8 runs the Sox scored, 6 were scored in the top of the 9th to put the game away. The big blast in the 9th came in the form of a 3-run home run by Magglio Ordonez. But before that doubles by Miguel Olivo and Carlos Lee as well as singles by Joe Crede and DíAngelo Jimenez helped to score 3 more runs.
  • The Sox took their initial lead in the 5th inning and would not look back. Joe Crede singled to lead off the inning and two groundouts later would be standing at 3rd as it looked like the Sox would blow another leadoff hit. But DíAngelo Jimenez would single to drive home Crede and after a Carlos Lee walk, Frank Thomas would single to score Jimenez.
  • Billy Koch pitched the 9th against his former club. He would plunk the first hitter but then settle down to preserve the shutout. Koch continues to pitch well since adjusting his mechanics. He has not allowed a run in his last 8 outings and has allowed only 2 hits in that span.
  • Carlos Lee continued to swing a hot bat by hitting his team leading 14 double. Lee also leads the team in RBI with 34 (1 ahead of Magglio Ordonez) and Slugging at .494. Paul Konerko did something he has done many times this year, hit into a double play. Frank Thomas on the other hand, did something he hasnít done much of this year, get a hit with a runner in scoring position.
  • The Sox look to salvage a split for the start of this long road trip tomorrow at 6:05 cst. Esteban Loaiza looks to get revenge against his former team when he faces Cory Lidle. Loaiza will be looking for his 8th win and hoping he gets some decent run support. He certainly has something to prove to the Jays, so lets just hope the Sox bats can give him some help unlike his previous starts.

WSI's
Tinkerer Update:
  Lee in the 2 spot, with Thomas starting at first and Konerko at DH.
