"Brushes off Timo's throw by mearly saying he could have done the same."

Short Take: Buehrle good, Konerko hits 2 HR, bullpen nearly blows 4-run lead in 9th before being saved by the defense of Timo Perez.

Ichiro Suzuki may have gone 5-for-5 in Saturday nightís game at U.S. Cellular Field, but it was the final play by the Sox right fielder that put the exclamation point on a wild game as the Sox held on for an 8-7 win against the Mariners.

Things were looking good for the Sox early on. Mark Buehrle, the most consistent pitcher of the year, took the hill for the Pale Hose and was opposed by Ryan Franklin, who entered the contest 3-13 and searching for his first victory since June 5th (which did happen to be against the Sox, by the way).

Paul Konerko, however, didnít feel in a giving mood, apparently. The Sox slugger hit two of 5 dingers for the South Siders. The first came immediately after Carlos Lee had tagged Franklin and put the Sox up 2-0. The other homers were compliments of Timo Perez in the 3rd and Willie Harris in the 6th. Yes, thatís right. Willie Harris. It was his first longball of the season and third of his career. Konerko connected for his second homer of the night in the 4th. By the time Harris went deep, the score was 8-2 Sox and with Buehrle cruising, things were looking very up.

Mark looked good. Officially, he went 7 innings, putting him a third of an inning ahead of Oaklandís Mark Mulder for the American League lead in IP at 203.1, allowing 9 hits, 3 runs, and striking out 3. The Mariners only really dented Mark with bloop hits and sacrifice flies. He was as effective as usual en route to win #13.

However, things did get a tad interesting late in the game. Buehrle was pulled in favor of Neal Cotts in the 8th, who allowed a run. After the Sox threatened by failed to score in their half of the 8th, they entered the 9th leading 8-4. Enter Jeff Bajenaru, a 26-year-old righty from Pomona, California making his Major League debut. Though he got Jose Lopez to ground out to start the inning, it was all downhill from there. He gets to join the ranks of other Sox pitchers (Felix Diaz, Arnie Munoz, etc.) with less than impressive debuts, as the Mariners tallied three straight hits and a run off the rookie before he was yanked for Shingo Takatsu. Takatsu got Edgar Martinez to strike out but walked Bret Boone to load the bases. Raul Ibanez singled to right field to score Ichiro and Randy Winn, but Timo Perez threw a strike to Juan Uribe at third and though Bret Boone made a real nice slide into the bag, Uribe blocked off just enough to keep Boone from being able to stick a hand in there and was tagged for the final out of the game.

The Sox take the field tomorrow against Seattle one win away from a series sweep. Felix Diaz gets the nod against junkballer Jaime Moyer. Game time is 2:05 PM Central and it will be aired on Fox Sports Net.

5 homers? That'll get it done.
