Home Sweet Home!

July 23rd vs Detroit

Today's Free Agency Value:
"Back to the DL he goes. Time to dig the Magglio Watch back out."

Short Take: Timely hitting overcomes shaky pitching, keys Sox win

At long last, the Sox are back from their West-to-Midwest road trip, and they didn't leave their winning ways in Cleveland. On Rat Pack night at US Cellular Field, the Sox own Rat Pack of Uribe, Lee and Rowand provide the right hits at the right time and help the squad walk away with a 6-4 win in their first look at the much-improved Detroit Tigers of the 2004 season.

The Sox lone representative on the AL All-Star team, Esteban Loaiza, took the hill tonight looking for his first win in almost a month. He picked it up, but it sure wasn't an All-Star performance. E-Lo found himself in a hole from the very beginning of the game, as 5 Tigers in a row reach base, staking the Kitties to a quick 2-0 lead. Loaiza would go on to give up 2 more (thankfully) solo home runs in the 4th before settling down for the night. Loaiza leaves the game after the 6th with a less than impressive line: 7H, 4ER, 4K, 3BB...but hey, a win is a win, we'll take it! The Sox relief triumvirate of Cliff Politte, Damaso Marte and Shingo Takatsu each retire the Tigers 1-2-3 in their respective innings to preserve the lead, and send Sox fans home happy.

Before the game even started, the Sox offense was already in trouble, as the team announced that Magglio Ordonez is heading right back to the disabled list with fluid problems in his ailing left knee. Although his projected return is supposedly within 6 to 8 weeks, playing out the season without the best right fielder in Chicago is suddenly becoming a very real possibility. Carlos Lee turns in a Maggs-like performance tonight though with a 2-run homer and a sacrifice fly, while Aaron Rowand continues to bash everything that comes his way, racking up 2 doubles and an RBI. But it was the recently slumping Juan Uribe who provided the pop the Sox really needed, blasting a Nate Robertson offering to deep left center to put the Sox ahead for one of his 2 hits on the night.

Same two teams meet again tomorrow night at US Cellular with a 6:05 first pitch. Scott Schoeneweis looks for his second win in a row against the Tigers' Jason Johnson.

Ozzieball Update:
 Textbook smallball in the fifth. Rowand laces a double to lead the inning off, Valentin sacrifices him over to 3rd, and Lee hits the long sac fly to bring him home.
