"Spent the morning giving himself 99's in all the categories on MVP Baseball '04 on PS2 before grilling some Ballpark Franks and watching the Field of Dreams on DVD."

Short Take: Loaiza less than impressive, but ofense bails him out with 10 runs in win.

Though there was a fireworks show after Saturday nightís game between the Sox and Braves, Frank Thomas ensured that every one of the 30,000+ who showed up at the Cell got the most bang for their buck. The Big Hurt bashed two homers and Ozzie Guillen added fireworks on the field, getting tossed in the sixth inning for the first time in his managerial career as the Sox held on to a 10-8 victory over the Braves.

The Sox offense staked Esteban Loaiza to an early lead in the second, scoring four runs, one on a single by Timo Perez and three on a deep double by Juan Uribe. In the third, Carlos Lee led off with a single, extending his hitting streak to 26. He would eventually come around to score thanks to Joe Crede as the Sox extended their lead to 5.

But thatís what Loaiza began to unravel. While he did pitch well enough to win the game (as he did), he was clearly not his sharpest. Though considering last yearís offense may have cost him the Cy Young Award compliments of a handful of 1-0 losses to Detroit, perhaps this was only fair. Loaiza allowed two runs in the Atlanta 4th on a 2-run home run by J.D. Drew to cut the lead to 3. Frank did get that run back with his first home run, a solo shot to put the Pale Hose up 6-2, but in the fifth, the big Brave bats woke up and thanks to a double by Rafael Furcal, single by Nick Green, and a 2-run bomb from Chipper Jones, the Braves tied the game at 4.

The Sox did reclaim the lead the next inning, thanks to a groundout by Miguel Olivo, scoring Paul Konerko and giving Loaiza and the Sox a 7-6 lead they would not relinquish. In the 6th, Ozzie had enough of Gerry Davisí strike zone and after a little talk, found himself on the Clubhouse Express, but even under the soft-spoken Harold Baines, the Sox continued to add ensure runs, 2 in the sixth, another in the second, and Frank Thomasís 2nd homer of the night was the exclamation point and another big run, extending the Sox lead to 2, after Cliff Politte allowed 2 inherited runners to score in the top half of the 8th.

As if there wasnít enough news to keep Sox fans energized, the ninth inning brought even more gossip, as the Silver and Black had a 2-run lead and for the first time on this side of the Pacific, Shingo Takatsu trotted to the hill and made short work of the overmatched Braves, as Mr. Zero finally got number 1. Just 478 more until he can be the career saves leader here, too, right?

The two teams face off Sunday afternoon for the rubber match of the series. Mark Buehrle gets the nod for the Sox.
