Tipping The Twinkies!

September 18th At Minnesota


Sox Magic Number:
11
"Sox take two out of three in the HumpDome to drop the number below a dozen. Too bad we got no help from KC."

Short Take: Sox win squeaker in rubber match at Minnesota/font>

At the beginning of the baseball season, plenty of White Sox fans had this weekend circled on their calendar as one of the most important series of the year. The Sox were locking horns with Minnesota at the HumpDome for the final time this season, and with the Sox-Twins rivarly at a boiling point for the past few years the three game set could have had serious playoff implications. But with Minnesota's seasion log since flushed down the toilet, the Sos instead took advantage of their late season visit to the Land Of 10,000 Lakes as a chance to shave a couple games off their magic number en route to their run at the AL Central Crown. The Sox won today's game 2-1, and won't have to look at the stained off-white roof of the Metrodome again until next season.

The Sox sent Jose Contreras to the hill for today's game. Earlier in the season, there's a very good chance that this could have been a recipe for disaster. But El Conde has been the most solid pitcher in the Sox rotation since the All-Star break, and he turned in another solid outing today giving up just 5 hits and one run over eight solid innings. Contreras only found himself in a jam once over the course of the afternoon, when he gave up back-to-back-to-back singles in the Minnesota fourth which resulted in the Twins scoring a run to tie the game. An earlier chance for the Twins to score when Nick Punto led off the third with a triple was quickly erased when Contreras got Jason Bartlett to ground into a double play/.

The White Sox scored their first run in the top of the fourth when Aaron Rowand singled home Paul Konerko. The go-ahead run came in the 8th, when Jermaine Dye ripped a ball right at Punto at second base, who misplayed it and allowed Ross Gload to score.

The Sox return home this week for what might be the most important series they've played in three years, when they face the hard-charging Cleveland Indians in a heads-up battle for the AL Central crown. Tomorrow's series opener is at 7:05 PM, with Freddy Garcia facing Kevin MIllwood.

Ozzieball Update:
 Pods gets busted stealing yet again, but Gload's heads-up baserunning scratches out the winning run.
