Short Take: Sox exact revenge against Tigers, Contreras wins again

With Ozzie Guillen out of the hospital, but still not back on the bench as he serves out the balance of his suspension, Harold Baines held the reins for the Sox again tonight. Unlike last night's slugfest where the hometown boys walked away on the losing end, the Sox legend got to preside over a 9-2 drubbing of the Detroit Tigers. Hey Sox fans...this is what a game against the Murder City Kitties is supposed to look like.

The Sox sent Jose Contreras to the mound for tonight's game, and in spite of sporadic control problems, the big bad Cuban got the job done. Contreras walked 4 batters on the night and allowed 6 hits, but still managed to be effective giving up just 2 runs in 6 /23 innings of work. Only in the 5th did the Tigers manage to get anything going against him when they scored both of their runs, but Contreras quickly put the threat to bed as he got Dimitri Young to ground out to end the inning.

The Sox offense had a field day against Tigers hurler Jeremy Bonderman, getting on the board early and often. In the first inning, Timo Perez starts the game off right drawing a walk, and moseys over to second on a Robbie Alomar groundout. Carlos Lee hustles out a grounder to short, Perez moves to third, and Bonderman throws a 56 foot slider in the dirt to bring home Perez. A slightly unglued Bonderman then plunks Carl Everett and walks Jose Valentin to load the bases. Aaron Rowand steps up, and blasts a 1-0 Bonerman offering over the wall in the deepest part of the park to give the Sox a 4-0 lead, and from there, no reason to look back. Through the rest of the game, the Sox just pecked away at Tigers pitching, adding runs in the 4th and 6th on singles by Timo Perez, Joe Crede and Robbie Alomar. In the seventh, Aaron Rowand makes the most of his last at-bat of the night, blasting a solo shot that would provide the game's final run. Tonight marks the second multihomer game of Rowand's career...and the second one this week.

The rubber match vs Detroit is tomorrow night at 7:05, with Wilfredo Ledezma facing Jon Garland. With the Indians' bubble rapdily bursting, let's see if we can't move back into second place!

Ozzieball Update:
 Haroldball was the name of the game tonight, with the perfect mixture of smallball and longball.
