Short Take:White Sox pound Red Sox on white-hot afternoon

With the thermometer hovering at 100 degrees and the sun beating down on the beautifully manicured grass at US Cellular Field, the stage was set for a long afternoon of baseball between the defending World Series Champion Red Sox and the team with the best record in baseball, our beloved Chicago White Sox. A near capacity crowd watched the Sox walk away with a 6-4 win and a series split against the Carmines. "Red Sox Nation" turned out in their usual ignorant force to watch all four games of the series, and now they can all go home and put their Cubbie hats back on.

Jose Contreras took the hill for the Sox today, and probably felt like he was back to playing for peanuts for the Cuban national team in the brutal heat. The Red Sox have pretty much been Contreras' daddy since he was a Yankee, and when David Ortiz hit a tape-measure blast in the Carmines' half of the first inning, White Sox fans thought they were in for a long and painful afternoon of balls sailing out of The Cell. The White Sox offense had their own ideas about that though, as they came right back in the bottom half of the inning against Bronson Arroyo. Tadahito Iguchi and Carl Everett singled back to back, and Paul Konerko striped a double down the left field line that was completely misplayed by Red Sox hero Manny Ramirez to score both runners and give the Sox a one-run edge. The lead was short-lived though, as Contreras found himself in trouble in the next inning when Jason Varitek and Trot Nixon ended up on second and third with just one out. Joey Cora's little brother Alex lifted a sac fly tto Scott Podsednik, and the score was tied. Contreras then settled down, and the Sox offense went to work. Iguchi belted a two-out two-run home run in the bottom of the second to put the White Sox back on top. In the next inning, Ross Gload proved that his monster season in the minors was no fluke, smashing a double to score Konerko, but killing chances of scoring a run himself by getting thrown out trying to stretch said double into a triple. Contreras did a fine job keeping the Red Sox at bay until the sixth, when Jason Varitek hit a solo home run over Aaron Rowand's head. After allowing a single to the light-hitting Cora, Ozzie Guillen decided he'd seen enough, and the big Cuban left the game with 6 strikeouts, 2 walks and 8 hits under his belt. Luis Vizcaino came on and walked Tony Graffanino before getting the hook, and Neal Cotts got Johnny "Caveman" Damon to fly out to end the Red Sox threat.

The White Sox picked up another run after the seventh-inning stretch when Iguchi continued his monster afternoon by singling home Scott Podsednik. That run would prove crucial, as potentially Florida-bound Damaso Marte was downright shaky in the ninth, walking two batters and bringing up the meat of the Red Sox lineup. Manny Ramirez avoided going 0-fer on the afternoon with an RBI single to bring the Red Sox back to within two off Dustin Hermanson, but Hermanson cinched it down and retired Trot Nixon and John Olerud to end the game.

The Sox head to Kansas City to play the Royals in a three-game series, a team they have yet to lose to in nine meetings this season. Here's hoping that trend continues when Freddy Garcia squares off against Zach Greinke at 7:10 tomorrow night.
