Short Take:  Buehrle throws a 9 inning gem against the lowly Royals.

After his poor outing versus the Twins, which allowed the Twins to clinch in Chicago, Mark Buehrle made no predictions about his outing Saturday against the Royals. Buehrle didn’t need to on this night as he let his pitching do the talking. The result was a complete game four hitter, allowing just one run. The Sox offense gave Buehrle enough run support, though really only 2 runs were needed. The result was a 5-1 White Sox win.

While the Sox eventually won this game soundly, there were some uneasy moments at the beginning. Buehrle went through the first 3 innings without allowing a run. The problem was Royals starter Denny Bautista was matching Buehrle. The question became who would break first. It wound up being Buehrle who allowed a solo shot to Joe Randa to lead off the 4th inning. That would be the only run Buehrle allowed, but the Sox still entered the bottom of the 6th inning trailing 1-0. That was when they finally managed to get to Bautista. With 1 out, Aaron Rowand was hit by a pitch. Carlos Lee walked in front of a Paul Konerko single which drove home one run. Ross Gload grounded out to first but it was enough to score Lee from 3rd. The Sox had enough runs to take a lead, but still looked to pad the lead.

Jose Valentin did his part to provide some insurance by leading off the bottom of the 7th inning with a solo home run to increase the lead to 3-1. Carlos Lee followed Valentin’s lead by doing the same in the 8th inning. Lee drove the 3rd pitch he saw to center field for another insurance run. Walks to Gload and Valentin led to a runner in scoring position for Joe Borchard Borchard singled to center on the first pitch he saw to score Gload. With the lead 5-1, the only question was whether Ozzie would allow Buehrle the chance to finish what he started or choose to bring in a reliever to finish off the game. Ozzie decided to go with the former and allowed Buehrle to go back out for the 9th inning. Nine pitches later, Buehrle added two more strike outs to his total and finished off his complete game masterpiece. In total Buehrle struck out 6 batters on the night while walking just one. Each White Sox hitter reached base at least once on the night. Combine that with Buehrle’s outing and you have a 5-1 White Sox win in another pressure-less game.

The Sox look to take 3 out of 4 from the Royals tomorrow at 2:05 CDT. Jon Garland throws for the Sox against Brian Anderson of the Royals. Tomorrow’s game will also be the last White Sox home game of the season. The Sox will finish up the season with a 7 game road trip. If you’re looking to see your favorite White Sox player in person one more time before he is possibly jettisoned in the off season, tomorrow is your last shot.

Ozzieball Update:
 Jose Valentin gets a start and goes yard for one of the Sox 2 homers. That was all that was really needed with the way Buehrle threw.
