See-Saw Nail-Biter

September 9th vs. California Angels


Sox Magic Number:
15
"Though the magic number didn't decrease tonight, the "finish line" is still in sight."

Short Take: In a see-saw match between two divisional leaders, the team who can't decide where they even play came away with a 6-5 victory over our beloved Palehose. The biggest silver-lining from the game: Bobby Jenks went three full innings, fanning six in the process!

For a team who can't even determine which city they play for, the Angels came out to play one of the most closely-played ballgames against our beloved Palehose on this Friday evening. At this juncture of the season, the Angels are in a very tight divisional race and can't afford any losses, while our beloved have all but wrapped up their division. With just over three weeks left in the regular season, the final series against a non-divisional opponent was underway.

The Angels displayed an exigency to get the show on the road at the get-go. Garret Anderson and Validmar Guerrero both singled and scored on singles by Benji Molina and Darin Erstad respectively to bring the score to 2-0 before the White Sox even came up to bat. The score would remain in tact until our south siders put together a beauty in the bottom of the fourth.

After Paul Konerko doubled and Aaron Rowand walked, Jermaine Dye trippled in both to tie the score at two. Rowand almost overran Konerko making Ozzie Guillen look a bit nervous during the play. Folloing AJ Pierzynski's groundout, which scored Dye, Juan Uribe (who's been batting much better the past month) hit a solo home run. The Sox led 4-2 after four innings of play.

The game grew tighter, as the Angels scored two more runs of their own in the top of the very next inning. Zach Sorensen, who hit a lead-off double, scored on a single by Chone "I can't even spell my own name right" Figgens. Figgens was awarded second base on a horrible mis-call by the umpiring crew. Sox starter Mark Buehrle obviously went directly to the plate on a pitch; however, he was called for the biggest NON-balk of the season. Figgens later scored on a single by Orlando Cabrera. Thanks to a couple of outstanding throws from the outfield from Dye, the Angels didn't score any more runs in the frame.

Then the teams began to see-saw. Konerko hit his team-leading 37th home run of the season, passing Texas' Mark Teixeira on the list and now trailing only Boston's Big Papi and New York's A-Rod. It was the 200th for Walnuts in a Sox uniform and called for a curtain call. Angels OF Robb Quinlan hit his own solo blast to tie the score at five.

That score would last all the way to the 12th inning, after three outstanding innings pitched by our very own Bobby Jenks. In the 12th, Guerrero appeared as if he hit a home run; however, it bounced off the base of the outfield wall, only allowing him a double. Then the most uncanny of plays came to be. Molina desired to sacrifice Guerrero over to third with a bunt; however, Guerrero went through Ron Roenicke's stop sign and scored all the way from second, which provided the difference in our Sox' 6-5 loss to the Halos.

The divisional clinching finish line is so close, yet seems so far for our Palehose. There still is plenty of time left, so do not get depressed about this outing. Unlike our northside counterparts, we do not pin the word "choke" on our household doors! The turn-around is very short this time, as our southsiders get another chance at win # 88 tomorrow in the early afternoon. Jon Garland and Bartolo Colon, the AL's two winningest pitchers, square off in what should be a good pitcher's duel at 12:15 in a game that can be seen on Chicago's very own Fox 32 (WFLD). Sox pride is STILL in the air as we speak and will NEVER die!

Ozzieball Update:
Aaron Rowand got a lead-off walk and stole second in the 11th inning. While trying to score on a double by Juan Uribe, Rowand was thrown out due to his head-first slide.
