Road Trip Starts Right!

July 29 vs Kansas City


Today's temperature:
99
"Even Jerry looks like a genius when the Sox are slamming homers like that. The Sox stayed focused and played hard tonight. They need to keep it going."

Short Take: Long Balls Undo Royals

  • Last time the Sox and Royals met was in April. The Sox were sputtering and stuttering along and the Royals were doing their best impression of the 1927 Yankees running roughshod over the competition. At long last, the 2 division rivals met again tonight, and just like the heavy Kansas City air, the Sox were downright hot. The Sox overcome a 2 run deficit early and Rick White flailing and floundering late to walk away with a win in the series opener against the division leaders 9-6.
  • Mark Buehrle notches his 7th straight win in games where he's the pitcher of record with another strong outing. Buerhle, pitching in his home state just a short drive from where he supposedly wants to be playing, scatters 9 hits over 6 plus innings of work while striking out 3 and walking none. Burlymon's once stratospheric ERA is now creeping back down to just above 4 as he shows the poise and form that made him a 19 game winner last year. For a while after he left the game though, it looked like his effort would be all for naught as balding aging whining tub of goo Rick White comes on in relief and gives up 3 runs, turning a 9-3 rout back into a contest again. Thank God for Kelly Wunsch and Tom Gordon, who manage to pitch around a couple of walks and preserve the win with Gordon earning the save. The Sox pen also gets a bit of good news just before gametime as Kenny Williams swaps Gary Glover and a couple minor leaguers for Scott Schoenweis.
  • The Sox offense busted out the big sticks again tonight, tallying 16 hits on the night. Hell, there were a few streaks in May and June where I don't think they had 16 hits in a week. With the Sox trailing 2-0 in the 4th, Paul Konerko blasts a 2 run shot to deep left to tie the game, part of his 3 for 4 performance. Not to be outdone, hometown boy Joe Crede follows Konerko with a solo blast and even earns some cheers from the Royal faithful. Magglio Ordonez hits a 2 run moon shot in the 5th to pad the Sox lead as part of his solid 3 hit, 3 RBI night. Tony Graffanino belts a solo homer into the center field fountain and adds an RBI double on the night as well. We can't play him every day, but this humble correspondent likes seeing the scrappy fella with the big nose and the big name in the lineup 2 or 3 times a week.
  • Game 2 of the battle of the AL Central is tomorrow night. The Royals feel us breathing down their necks..I say it's high time we go in for the series win and the kill! Jon Garland squares off against Runelvys Hernandez, who threw 16 straight balls against the Sox in his major league debut last year. Let's hope for more of the same tomorrow.
