Lucky 7!

July 24th at Toronto


Today's temperature:
105
"More strange decisions, but Jerry pulls out all the stops to try and get a win. In the end the starters get it done, but the bullpen is ragged out. Kenny needs to add an arm if this is going to continue... "

Short Take:  Offense comes through late as pitching is great.

7 in a row? Can it be? Thankfully, Sox fans, it is true. The White Sox extended their winning streak to 7 games on Thursday with a 4-3 win over the Blue Jays in 13 innings. It took a long time and it certainly wasn’t a pretty game to watch, but the end result is all that matters, and the end result was a great one for Sox fans. The Sox managed to overcome some poor offense thanks to a fabulous job by their pitchers. Jon Garland pitched 7 innings allowing only 2 runs as he continues to pitch well. The scoring in this game took a while to begin and it wouldn’t last long. The first shot came from the Blue Jays in the 3rd. Two walks, a sacrifice, and a ground out combined to give the Jays the first run of the game. In the 5th, Eric Hinske gave the Jays a 2-0 lead with a solo home run. The Sox responded back the next inning, but it would have to wait. Carlos Lee started the 6th with a single and after a Frank Thomas fly out, Magglio Ordonez would single as well. Carl Everett came up with a chance to continue the rally, but rain was falling and the Jays had their dome open. So the game went into a rain delay. Yes that’s right, a rain delay in a domed stadium. The delay would last 26 minutes as they waited for the dome to close and then cleaned up the field.

Play resumed with Everett up and he would quickly continue the momentum the Sox had going into the delay by doubling to right field. One run scored to make it 2-1 Jays. The next batter, Paul Konerko, would ground out but that was good enough to get the runner from 3rd home and tie the game. The top of the 6th ended with the score 2-2, and that wouldn’t change until the 13th inning! But in that time the Sox would show off their terrible fundamentals. In the 6th, Miguel Olivo nearly was picked off first base on a pickoff attempt when he choose to go back in standing up. Apparently not learning his lesson, he was then picked off in the same at-bat. In the 9th the Sox had a chance to grab the lead when leadoff man Paul Konerko singled to start the inning. Willie Harris pinch ran for Konerko and Jose Valentin stepped to the plate. Valentin failed to get the sacrifice bunt down and ended up striking out bunting. The same would happen in the 12th with Miguel Olivo trying to bunt this time after the leadoff man reached base.

But in the 13th the Sox finally struck, and it was about time too. Carlos Lee started the inning off with a ground rule double. Frank Thomas singled him home to give the Sox the lead. Ordonez would provide the Sox with an insurance run by doubling to score Thomas. However, Maggs would be thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a triple. That insurance run would be huge. Rick White entered the game to get the save and retired the first 2 batters. But he would then allow a solo home run to Vernon Wells to make it a 4-3 game. White ended the game by forcing Carlos Delgado to ground out to Valentin who was playing behind second base with the shift on. A brilliant job by Sox relievers pitching 6 innings and holding the Jays offense down so that the Sox had a chance. The Sox open a series with the Devil Rays tomorrow at 7:05 cst with Esteban Loaiza looking for win #13 facing Jorge Sosa. With the bullpen getting a lot of work today, Loaiza will need to be a horse tomorrow and give the Sox pen a rest.
