How Sweep It Is, The Sequel

April 21 at Detroit


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"Team effort to grind this one out. Everett, Pierzynski and Crede all with 2 hits and a run scored, and Podsednik delivered the game winning hit. "

Short Take:Another quality start, another win for Buehrle as Sox sweep two-game set in the Motor City.

Mark Buehrle gave up three runs in seven innings this afternoon, which was good enough for the win as the Sox beat the Tigers 4-3 at Comerica Park. Buehrle's counterpart, Jeremy Bonderman, took a 3-1 lead into the 6th inning but couldn't make it hold up in suffering the loss.

The Sox had a chance to break the game open in the first, loading the bases with only one out. Following consecutive singles by Willie Harris and Carl Everett, Bonderman issued a free pass to Paul Konerko to load the bases for Jermaine Dye. Dye, off to a slow start this season, drew a walk which brought Harris home with the game's first run. The next man up,Aaron Rowand continued his own slumping ways. Rowand struck out looking, the start of an 0-3 day for the Sox centerfielder. A.J. Pierzynski would fly out to end the inning, leaving the bases loaded. The Tigers would tie the game in the bottom half of the second on a leadoff home run by Rondell White. The Tigers would score again in the 3rd, getting three consecutive singles off Buehrle to take a 2-1 lead. Meanwhile, Bonderman would settle in and at one point retired 10 Sox hitters in a row.

Detroit appeared to be in control when they added to their lead in the bottom half of the 5th inning and Bonderman cruising. Nook Logan doubled and scored on a Carlos Guillen triple to put the kitties up 3-1. The Sox got the run back in the top half of the 6th. Carl Everett led off the inning with a double. Konerko then hit a grounder to Guillen at short which took a funny hop and bounced into left field for an RBI single to make the score 3-2.

Buehrle retired the Tigers in order in the bottom half of the frame, and the Sox went back to work in the 7th. Pierzynski and Crede led off the inning with consecutive singles, and Juan Uribe sacrificed them over to second and third. Jamie Walker came on in relief of Bonderman to face Scott Podsednik. Scotty delivered his only hit of the game, but it turned out to be the game winner. The single by Podsednik scored both Pierzynski and Crede to give the Sox a 4-3 lead. Buehrle pitched a perfect 7th inning before giving way to Dustin Hermanson to start the 8th. Hermanson let the first two hitters reach base on a walk and a single, but he was able to get out of the jam with the lead intact. Closer Shingo Takatsu, the subject of much concern and debate due to his shaky performance so far this season, got the job done today. Shingo pitched a perfect 1-2-3 9th inning for his 5th save of the year.

The Sox are now off to their best start since 1935 (!) with a gaudy 12-4 record, tops in the A.L.. The Sox ride a 4-game winning streak into Kansas City where Freddy Garcia (1-1, 3.43) will try to keep things rolling against Runelvys Hernandez (1-2, 4.19) and the Royals. Gametime is 7:10 pm CDT, and will be telecast on WCIU channel 26.

Ozzieball Update:
Juan Uribe sacrificed the eventual winning runs into scoring position, setting the table for Scott Podsednik to be the hero.
