All's Well That Ends Wells

August 27th at New York

"When your team is going this good, it's kind of hard to look bad no matter what you do."

Short Take:  The Sox hammer the best team money can buy.

It was a night of revenge for the Sox on Wednesday as the Sox faced the guy who was supposed to help lead them to the playoffs two years ago. While the Sox players may not have felt like they needed to exact revenge on Wells, they certainly put on a show against him. The Sox countered with the pitcher who they picked up this year to help lead them to the promised land. And this years acquisition, Bartolo Colon out dueled the Sox big pickup of 2001. Hey Yankees, thanks again for helping us get Colon! Early on it looked like Colon would be outdone by David Wells, but Colon ultimately stepped it up to help seal the 11-2 White Sox win. Colon surrendered the first run of the game in the 2nd inning when Nick Johnson crushed a first ball fastball to right center for a solo home run. And it looked like it would get much worse in the bottom of the 3rd. Colon allowed base hits to 3 of the first 4 batters he faced in the inning which scored 1 run and left runners on 1st and 2nd with only 1 out. But Colon would come up big by striking out Jason Giambi and getting Jorge Posada to line out to first to minimize the damage. But the Sox would not back down to the 26 time World Champs. Not these Sox and not with the way the Sox are smashing the cover off the ball right now. Instead, the Sox would come out firing the next half inning and completely turn the game around.

Frank Thomas started it off by crushing a solo homer to left. It had to feel good for Thomas to hit a homer against the man who once questioned him for sitting out even though he was seriously injured. But the Sox attack did not stop there. Carlos Lee walked, and Carl Everett and Paul Konerko doubled, each driving in one run as the Sox inning of the extra base hit continued. Joe Crede then doubled to right but a base running blunder by Konerko meant he only advanced from 2nd to 3rd. That would prove costly because when Miguel Olivo grounded to 3rd, Aaron Boone threw home to get Konerko. A miscue on the bases costs the Sox a run. How many times have we seen this this year, Sox fans? Luckily in a game like this, it wouldn’t really matter but it’s still not a good sign. The next batter, Tony Graffanino, picked up Konerko by tripling to left center to score Crede and Olivo. And to close out the Sox extra base hit barrage in the 4th, Roberto Alomar would homer to left field from the right side of the plate as his own way of shutting up the New York boo-birds. The inning finished with the Sox leading 7-2 and handed it over the Colon to finish up.

Colon took the 5 run cushion that the offense gave him and cruised the rest of the way. Colon had his fastball going but used his changeup to get several of the 10 strike outs he recorded in the game. The end result for Colon was a solid 7 inning performance allowing only 2 runs. The Sox would add 3 more runs in the 6th when Roberto Alomar doubled to drive in two and eventually came around to score himself on a Frank Thomas single. Konerko closed out of the scoring in the 9th with a solo blast to left for the 11-2 win. This win was a perfect example of a team win by the Sox as every starter contributed in some way to the win. The Sox had 15 hits in the game with 10 of them being extra base hits- 6 doubles, 3 home runs, and a triple. This was just an amazing outburst by the Sox offense. The last time a visiting team put up this many runs in consecutive games at Yankee Stadium? Well Sox fans will remember well as the Sox did in it 2000. The Sox look to put a finishing touch on this series tomorrow with a matinee scheduled for noon as Mark Buehrle goes up against Mike Mussina.
