"Spent day changing diapers of little Sophia."

Short Take:Sox crawl back to .500 mark and take series from Tigers behind strong effort by Garcia.

The White Sox continued where they left off last night, at least offensively, to turn back the Tigers 6-1 this afternoon at US Cellular Field. Freddy Garcia went 7 1/3 strong innings, carrying a shutout into the eighth for his 12 victory of the season.

Willie Harris scored three runs on the day despite going 0 for 2. He drew a leadoff walk in the first inning off Tiger starter Jeremy Bonderman, and quickly stole second base. This apparently rattled Bonderman, who would later throw a wild pitch with Harris on third to plate the first run of the game for the Sox.

Garcia retired the first six Tiger hitters he faced, but got in a little trouble in the third. He loaded the bases with one out, thanks to a walk and two infield singles. He buckled down and ended up striking out the side by getting the next two batters, Bobby Higginson and Craig Monroe, out on strikes. The Sox responded with another run in the bottom half of the third, again thanks to the hustle of Harris. Harris struck out on what would have been the third out of the inning; however the pitch got away from catcher Brandon Inge and Harris reached first on the wild pitch by Bonderman. Aaron Rowand made them pay with an RBI double and put the Sox up 2-0. Paul Konerko chipped in with his 39th home run of the season, a solo shot to lead off the 4th inning to make the score 3-0 Sox. Harris would score again in the 5th thanks to a Konerko sacrifice fly, and the Sox were up 4. Harris had led off the inning with a walk, and had advanced to third on an infield single by Rowand and a sacrifice by Carlos Lee. Lee added a two-run homer in the 7th to put the Sox on top 6-0.

Garcia looked strong, stifling the Tigers and holding them scoreless through 7 innings. In the top half of the 8th, he again loaded the bases with one out. He would yield to rookie Arnie Munoz, who came in and did a nice job to get out of the jam. Munoz was unable to preserve the shutout, however, as Dmitri Young drove in the Tigers only run on a sacrifice fly. Munoz pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings, with two strikeouts to go with two walks. Felix Diaz came on to record the final out to preserve the victory.

Pride is now on the line as the Twins come to town in search of a division title. There is no margin for error, as one victory by the Twins will clinch the division. The 3-game series kicks off tomorrow night, with Carlos Silva (12-8, 4.33) going for the clincher against the Sox and Mark Buehrle (14-9, 3.98). Gametime is 7:05 pm CDT from US Cellular Field.

Ozzieball Update:
Sox got aggressive early, turning Harris loose and forcing mistakes to set the tone.
