"Back on the shelf with bone bruise. Set to be re-evaluated in 4 weeks. Keep all your fingers and toes crossed."

Short Take:Sox refuse to lose as Crede hits walkoff bomb to catapult the Pale Hose back into First place.

Tonight was big. Ok, so it was against the Tigers. But the White Sox, behind clutch hitting late, fought off a 4-run defecit three different times to pull out a 7-6 walkoff victory. It would have been easy to pack it in tonight, with the recent news about Magglio going back on the DL for at least 4 to 8 weeks. But they proved once again that there is no quit in this team.

Sox starter Scott Schoeneweis did not figure in the decision. Good thing, because he left the game trailing 5-2 after a lackluster performance. Schoeneweis lasted 6 innings, giving up 5 runs on 8 hits, with 3 walks. The Tigers jumped on him in the first, with a double by Carlos Guillen and a two-out RBI single by Dmitri Young. The Tigers added another run in the third, when Guillen hit his first of two homers on the evening. The solo shot gave the kitties a 2-0 lead. They tacked on two more in the 4th, on a two-run homer by Brandon Inge to make the score 4-0.

Schoeneweis' counterpart was Jason Johnson. Johnson was sharp early, holding the Sox without a hit through the first 4 innings. The Sox did have a chance to get on the board in the third, but poor execution cost them. Aaron Rowand led off the inning and was hit in the hand by a pitch. He would stay in the game. Joe Crede, the star of the night, reached on an error by Inge and the Sox had two on and no outs. Sandy Alomar was up next, and he laid down a poor sacrifice bunt attempt which went back to the pitcher who got the force on Rowand at third. Willie Harris grounded into a double play, ending the inning. Down 4-0 going into the bottom of the 5th, Paul Konerko broke up the no hitter with a mammoth home run to straight away center to lead off the inning. The Tigers got the run back off Schoeneweis on the first pitch of the 6th inning when Marcus Thames homered. Down 5-1, Jose Valentin contributed his 22nd home run of the season in the bottom of the 6th, making the score 5-2.

Jon Adkins came in to start the 7th inning in relief of Schoeneweis. With one out, he gave up a home run to Guillen, his second of the night. Guillen was 3-5 with 3 runs scored, and homered from both sides of the plate. This made the score 6-2 Detroit, going into the bottom of the 7th. The Sox were finally able to get to Johnson, who up to that point had only allowed two hits. Konerko, Timo Perez, and Rowand would start the inning with three consecutive singles to load the bases. That brought up Joltin' Joe Crede. With the count 0-2, Crede worked the count full and then went opposite field with a double down the rightfield line to drive in two and cut the lead in half, 6-4. With one out, Willie Harris hit a sacrifice fly to score Rowand and cut the defecit to 6-5. Adkins pitched a scoreless eighth, and the Sox went back to work in the bottom of the 8th against Esteban Yan. Carlos Lee drew a leadoff walk, and advanced to second on a groundout by Carl Everett. With a 1-2 count on Konerko, Yan uncorked a wild pitch to advance Lee to third. This would prove to be crucial as Konerko would then hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game at 6. Damaso Marte would hold the Tigers scoreless in the 9th, setting the stage for Crede's heroics.

In the bottom of the 9th, Tigers closer Ugueth Urbina struck out Rowand to start the inning. Crede would then put this one to bed in dramatic fashion, depositing an Urbina offering into the leftfield seats to complete the comeback and give the Sox a 7-6 win. Instead of feeling sorry for themselves, the Sox now will wake up in first place all by their lonesome. Great team effort tonight. This was an impressive victory.

The Sox go for the sweep of the three-game series tomorrow afternoon. Jon Garland (7-6, 4.45) takes the mound in front of the home crowd against Jeremy Bonderman (6-7, 5.97). Gametime 2:05 pm CDT.

Ozzieball Update:
Poor execution in the third inning failed to get Sox on the board. They did manage to manufacture the tying run in the 8th inning, with the help of a wild pitch.
