Short Take:Sox overcome an early defecit to put an end to five game skid.

The Sox put the embarassment of last night behind them as they lit up the Tigers for 9 runs and crept back to within a game of .500 with a victory tonight.

Jon Garland got the start, going 7 innings and allowing 4 runs to notch the win and even his record at (9-9). It was a decent outing for Garland, who gave up all 4 runs on a grand slam by Carlos Pena in the third inning. He was able to regain his composure and the Sox bats came to the rescue, bailing him out.

Juan Uribe actually got the Sox on the board in the first inning, with a one-out solo home run off losing pitcher Wilfredo Ledezma. Ledezma had previously owned the Sox, going 2-0 against them in two previous starts. The Tigers would stake Ledezma to a 4-1 lead in the third with the grand slam by Pena. In the bottom of the 4th, Brandon Inge would lead off with a triple, and you could almost see the house of cards collapsing before your eyes. But Garland buckled down. He got Nook Logan to ground out, and then managed to get Omar Infante to ground into a fielder's choice. On the play, Inge was caught in a rundown between third and home, and eventually tagged out. Garland got out of the inning with no further damage, but the Sox still trailed 4-1.

The White Sox offense went to work in the 5th to reclaim the lead. Joe Crede worked a one out walk, and was followed up with a single by Joe Borchard. With men on first and second, Willie Harris doubled to drive in Crede and cut the margin to 4-2. Aaron Rowand hit a sacrifice fly to centerfield to bring home Borchard, and the Sox were within one. The next batter up was Uribe, and he tied the game with an RBI single, scoring Harris. Uribe would take second base on a wild pitch and ultimately score on a Carlos Lee single to give the Sox a 5-4 lead.

Working with the lead again, Garland settled in and did not allow another hit the rest of the night. He went 7 complete innings and had 3 strikeouts to go along with two walks. The Sox increased their lead in the 8th inning off reliever Esteban Yan. Rowand started the inning off with an infield single and went to second on a sacrifice by Uribe. Lee doubled, scoring Rowand and giving the Sox a 2-run lead. They would tack on two more in the inning on a single by Carl Everett and an error by leftfielder Craig Monroe, for an 8-4 lead. Damaso Marte would retire the first two batters in the bottom of the 8th inning before giving way to Jon Adkins. Adkins would get the next batter, Monroe, to ground out and end the inning. The Sox would add an insurance run in the 9th. Rowand tripled and Uribe sacrificed him home to make the score 9-4 Sox going into the bottom of the 9th. Inge would single to start the bottom of the 9th and eventually scored on a single by Bobby Higginson to end the scoring. Adkins would finish the game out for the Sox, who evened up the series with the 9-5 win.

The Sox try to take the series from the Tigers tomorrow night when Mark Buehrle (11-7, 4.00) goes up against Nate Robertson (10-7, 4.79) at 6:05 pm CDT at Comerica Park. The southsiders will also be trying to get back to the .500 mark and pick up some momentum before heading to Cleveland for a 4-game series.
