Surging Down the Stretch

September 3 v. Detroit


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"Iguchi leads the way in 12-hit attack, while Buehrle shuts 'em down."

Short Take: Streaky Sox win third in a row with 6-2 victory over Tigers.

Tadahito Iguchi and Aaron Rowand provided the bulk of the offense, and Mark Buehrle held Detroit to 1 run in 7 innings of work to lead the Sox to a 6-2 victory tonight.

Iguchi got things going in the first inning with a one-out double, and would score on an RBI single by Paul Konerko to put the Sox on top. The Tigers got the run back in the top of the second when Craig Monroe hit a solo home run off Buehrle. Despite allowing 9 hits in 7 innings, that would be the only run the Tigers would scratch across on the Sox ace. The Sox would regain the lead for good on a two-run triple in the third by Rowand, who would add a solo home run off Tiger starter Nate Robertson in the 7th. Rowand and Jermaine Dye went back-to-back with home runs in the 7th which put the Sox up 6-1 and ended Robertson's night.

The Sox other run came in the 6th inning. With Geoff Blum on second, Iguchi tripled. Blum scored to give the Sox a 4-1 lead at the time. Iguchi came up in the 8th inning with a chance to hit for the cycle, but he would strike out swinging against Tiger reliever Franklyn German.

Cliff Politte entered the game in the 8th inning in relief of Buehrle, who struck out 8 on the evening. Politte was welcomed by Placido Polanco, who led off the inning with a home run. Politte would retire the next two batters in the 8th before giving up a single to former Sox slugger Magglio Ordonez. Damaso Marte would come in to face Dmitri Young, and would retire him to end the inning with the Sox leading 6-2. Bobby Jenks pitched a perfect 9th inning to preserve the win for Buehrle and the Sox, notching two strikeouts in the process. The win was Buehrle's 15th of the season.

The Sox pulled out their 83rd win of the season, tops in the American League. They now enjoy an 8 1/2 game lead over Cleveland, who lost at Minnesota tonight. The Magic Number sits at 20. The Sox will try to sweep the 4-game series tomorrow afternoon as Jon Garland (16-8, 3.45) goes for elusive win #17 against Tiger ace Jermey Bonderman (14-11, 4.44). Gametime is 2:05 pm CDT at US Cellular Field.
