Can't Stop These Sox!

July 18 vs. Tigers


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"Everyone on the lineup card today helped out. Iguchi went 0-3, but helped with the ground outs to advance the runners. "El Duque" was decent in his first outing since going on the DL, "The Viz" pitches two scoreless innings of relief."

Short Take:  Sox were shut down through six innings by Tiger's starter Sean Douglass, but never fear, Sox stage a 5-run seventh to take a 7-5 win over the Tigers.

What a day it was Sox fans. A lot of action on and off the field. Where to start. Well, eariler in the day Shingo Takatsu was designated for assingnment to open a roster spot for Orlando Hernandez who made his first start since June 14. Along with the Tigers, came Hernia Boy Magglio Ordonez for his first trip to the South Side in 2005. Maggs would see what the 2005 White Sox are all about tonight. The Sox staged a amazing comeback in the seventh inning off the Tigers bullpen. Maggs would also get some boos and cheers from the 37,000+ in attendance.

The game didn't start pretty. Actually, starting from the first pitch through the sixth inning. El Duque's first pitch to Brandon Inge was sent into the seats in left field to give the Tigers a quick 1-0 lead. But, it looked like the Sox would launch their counter-attack in their half of the first. Scott Podsednik started it off with a lead off double and moved to third base on Tadahito Iguchi's ground out. But, Frank Thomas and Paul Konerko failed to bring Podsednik home.

But, the Sox would tie the game in the third the smart ball way. Joe Crede started it off with a double and advanced to third on Juan Uribe's ground out. Crede scored on Scott Podsednik's sac fly to left.

The Tigers and home plate umpire Mike Reilly would make Orlando Hernandez work. Especially in the fifth. With one out, Craig Monroe walked after a few questionable calls, that would be El Duque's first walk of the game. Omar Imfante singled and Monroe advanced to third on the hit and run. Nook Logan then singled to score Monroe. Brandon Inge batted next and during his at bat, the double steal was on and it was a success. Inge then flew out which scored Infante. Carlos Guillen walked and Chris Shelton doubled which scored Logan, but, nothing beats a relay to the plate. Carlos Guillen was thrown out by Jermaine Dye to Juan Uribe to Pierzynski. But, by then, the Tigers took a 4-1 lead.

As all Sox fans know by now, you NEVER count this team out! Sean Douglass was taken out of the game after going six strong impressive innings. Enter Chris Spurling from right field. Paul Konerko hit a solo home run to start the seventh inning cutting the Tiger lead to 4-2. After Rowand grounded out, Jermaine Dye doubled and moved to third on a A.J. Pierzynski single. Joe Crede came up next and looked like he was going to be put away by Tigers pitcher Chris Spurling when Crede had a 2-2 count on him. But, Crede came through like a cortisone shot! He launched a 3-run bomb to the seats in left field way back of the Sox bullpen to give the Sox a 5-4 lead. But it didn't stop there. Juan Uribe went back to back when he hit a solo shot to make it 6-4 Sox. Frank Thomas added a insurance run in the eighth when he hit a solo home run making it 7-4 Pale Hose!

Cliff Politte came in to pitch a ninth inning and gave up a home run to "Skinny" Ivan Rodriguez. But that was it. The Sox take the first of this three game set, and the first of this seven game home stand.

62-29 Sox fans, and with the Twins loss tonight, our Sox now hold a 13 game lead in the AL Central. Amazing isn't it. Tomorrow, Jose Contreras (5-5 3.99) will match up against Jeremy Bonderman. (11-6 4.23) If you plan on going to ANY games this week your best bet is heading down tomorrow with the rest of the games nearing sell out status. If you can't make it, the game will be televised on Comcast SportsNet with the usual 7:05pm start.

Ozzieball Update:
 Sox play "smart ball" early, but go all long ball to win in the last three innings. Whatever it takes... just win baby!
