Short Take: Where was this in July?

Face it Sox fans. We knew it was going to happen. As soon as the Twins came to town and clinched the division on the Sox home turf, the Sox would start playing like champions. Tonight's matchup between the 3-peating Twins and the 3-time bridesmaid Sox had just about everything the 14,000 who showed up in attendance paid half-price to see: grand slams, good relief pitching, and Torii Hunter not in the lineup. The Sox walk away with an 8-6 victory that we'll all be sure to toss into the "win when it don't matter no more" file.

Once again, Sox fans had to suffer through a Jon Garland start. Who knows where the screws that are supposed to hold his head on are these days, as Garland turns in yet another dreadful outing. Staked to an early lead thanks to Paul Konerko's 40th dinger of the season and some heads-up base running by Aaron Rowand, Garland promptly gives it right back by serving up a 2-run gopher ball to Michael Restovich, yet another one of the Twins' many no-name players who can still hit. 2 innings later, a Jason Bartlett (WHO?) single off Garland would score Jason Kubel (DOUBLE WHO?), who accounted for half the Twins' total run output on the night. Why can't the Sox AAA-caliber guys do this? Adding insult to injury, Kubel took Garland deep with a 2-run blast in the 6th inning. Pat Borders follwed later in the inning with an RBI double, sending Garland to the showers early once again.

Even after giving up on the season sometime around mid-July, the Sox refused to roll over and give up on the game tonight. In the bottom of the sixth, potential team MVP Aaron Rowand drilled a single to score Wilson Valdez, who scampered home like a guy trying to make the 2005 roster. But the icing on the cake would come an inning later. Facing the Twins' JC Romero, Ben Davis draws a walk. After the all-too-routine Joe Borchard strikeout, Joe Crede and Wilson Valdez also draw walks, setting the table perfectly for pinch-hitter Juan Uribe. The free-swinger drills a Romero offering over the fence in left, giving the Sox an 8-6 lead and cemeting the win. Kudos to Neal Cotts, Jon Adkins (yes, that Jon Adkins) and Shingo Takatsu for holding the pesky Twins at bay.

The Sox and Twins meet for the final time in 2004 tomorrow night, with Jason Grilli facing Terry Mulholland/.

Ozzieball Update:
 With the team out of it, why not swing away? Tonight, at least, it works.
