"3 hits on the night with an RBI and run scored...impressive! Good thing for Sox fans that O's owner Peter Angelos already went on his spending spree."

Short Take: Just Another One Run Win

Baseball is trult the ultimate game of numbers, so let's start this recap off with a couple of them. Heading into tonight's rubber game against the Baltimore Orioes at Camden Yards, our beloved Pale Hose were 10-1 in 1-run ballgames, and 8-1 in games following a loss. The free-spending, free-swinging Orioles handed the Sox their worst loss of the season Tuesday night, so the Sox struck back tonight with a heart-stopping 6-5 win, tallying another mark on the W side of both figures your humble correspondent just mentioned. Sox win the series 2-1 and get off on the right foot on the start of their 6 game road trip against the perennial also-rans of the AL East.

Ozzie Guillen handed the ball to Mark Buehrle tonight, sending him to the hill on only 3 days' rest...always daunting and difficult for a pitcher, especially when it's only the third time in their young career that they have to do so. Buehrle is effective but not spectacular (pretty much in line with the rest of his performance so far this season. Mark gets the hook early tonight, working 5 2/3 innings while surrendering 4 runs on 10 hits. Once again, middle relief is solid, with Damaso Marte and Shingo Takatsu (who picks up his second win) preventing the Orioles from pushing any runs across before Billy Kock gets the ball in the 9th. As is always the case with Koch, winning wasn't easy--Wild Billy loads the bases on 2 walks and a single, gives up a run-scoring sacrifice fly to cut the lead to 1 run (gotta pad that 1-run victory total, don't we?) before somehow getting the last out as Sox fans reach for another beer with one hand and the defibrillator with the other.

Sox hitters look good at the dish tonight after last night's corpseball flashbacks, battling back from both a 1-run deficit and a tie. Migule Olivo, summoned off the bench after Sandy Alomar leaves the game with cramps in the first, contributes 2 RBI. Magglio Ordonez racks up 3 hits and an RBI. Juan Uribe, prehaps the most unnoticed hitter in the American League, bangs out 2 hits and an RBI, keeping his avreage at a torrid .372. This was the guy we opnely booed about at Soxfest...but it looks like Kenny Williams may get the last laugh on this one after plucking him off the Colorado scrap heap. Props also go to Aaron Rowand, whose double provided the Sox with some late-inning insurance which they ended up really needing.

Sox get a day of rest Thursday before squaring off at SkyDome Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Jon Garland takes the hill against Ted Lilly.
