Short Take:Sox jump ahead early, hold off late Mariner rally for the W.

Jon Garland went 7 plus and the bullpen did enough to hold off Ichiro and the Mariners for a 7-5 White Sox victory.

The Sox did most of their damage early off Oak Lawn native Bobby Madritsch, highlighted by a 5-run, 5-hit second inning. Paul Konerko led off the second with a single and went to second on a sacrifice by Juan Uribe. Madritsch, who appeared to have some early jitters pitching in front of friends and family, balked allowing Konerko to move to third. Madritsch followed the balk with a wild pitch and the Sox were on the board. Jamie Burke singled and scored on a triple by Joe Borchard, and the Sox had a 2-0 lead. After a Jose Valentin walk, Joe Crede singled home the third run of the inning. With two outs, Roberto Alomar doubled to score Valentin and Crede and make the score 5-0 Sox. Alomar was thrown out at third on the play to end the inning, but just like that Garland had a 5-run cushion.

The M's would get one back in the third. Ichiro, on pace to set a Major League record for most hits in a season, doubled to start the inning. He advanced to third when Aaron Rowand had trouble picking up the ball off the warning track. Randy Winn was the next batter, and he singled to put the M's on the board. Garland was able to get out of that inning with a double play and a groundout, keeping the score 5-1. In the 5th, the Mariners continued to chip away at the lead. Shortstop Jose Lopez led off the 5th with a double and eventually scored to cut the Sox lead down to 3 runs. Uribe would get that run back in the home half of the 6th off Madritsch, who had settled in after the shaky second inning. Uribe hit a solo home run to left field, and the score was 6-2 good guys. Madritsch pitched 6 innings, giving up 6 earned runs on 6 hits.

Garland gave one back in the 7th. Old friend Miguel Olivo hit a one-out double and went on to score on a sacrifice fly by Ichiro. Garland started the 8th inning, but after surrendering a leadoff home run to Bret Boone he would exit nursing a 6-4 lead. He gave up 4 earned runs and 8 hits, with 4 K's. Damaso Marte came on in relief of Garland and faced one batter, Raul Ibanez, who singled. That set the stage for Jon Adkins to steal the show. All Adkins did was strike out the side. He got the first batter he faced, Edgar Martinez, to strike out swinging. Jolbert Cabrera and Scott Spiezio both went down looking, as Adkins effectively stopped the bleeding. Sox added a key insurance run in the bottom half of the 8th on a double by Carlos Lee and an RBI single by Uribe. Closer Shingo Takatsu made things interesting in the 9th. With a 7-4 lead, he gave up a leadoff double to Olivo. Joe Crede then misplayed a grounder for an error, and the Mariners then had two men on and the tying run at the plate in the form of Ichiro. Takatsu retired his fellow countryman, who flew out to center. Winn doubled home Olivo, and the M's cut the lead to 7-5. With the tying runs on base, Takatsu retired Boone and Ibanez to earn his 15th save of the season.

Garland picked up his 10th win of the season for his efforts, and the Sox once again crept to within one game of the .500 mark. Sox are back in second by a half-game, and trail the Twins by 9.5 games as another season slowly drifts away. The Sox will try to keep their bleak playoff hopes alive tomorrow as Mark Buehrle (12-8, 4.13) takes the mound against Ryan Franklin (3-13, 5.05). Gametime is 6:05 pm CDT at US Cellular Field.

Ozzieball Update:
Uribe helped get the Sox on the board with a sacrifice in the second.
