Joe Does His Thing

September 20 vs. Indians


Sox Magic Number:
9
"12 games to go."

Short Take:  Back and forth they went but Joe Crede hits a walk off home run for a 7-6 win in 10 innings moving the Sox back up 3 1/2 in the A.L. Central.

Last night the Sox bullpen couldn't hold on to the 5-4 lead. Tonight, neither bullpen was stellar but it was Cleveland's that couldn't hold up as Joe Crede hit a walk off home run after tying the game with a two run shot eariler in the game.

Mark Buehrle hasn't been himself lately and he looked to right himself against Jake Westbrook. Buehrle wasn't bad, but he wasn't dominating. The Indians got to him in the second inning. With two outs Buehrle walked "strike out king" Jose Hernandez that led to Aaron Boone hitting a two run homer to put the Tribe up 2-0. Joe Crede countered that in the third inning with a two run blast to left field to tie the game.

The Indians explosive bats took a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning on a solo shot by Travis Hafner. But, the Sox fought back. There were runners on the corners with two outs for Juan Uribe who singled to tie the game 3-3. The game stayed tied even though the Sox had their chances, they left two runners on base in the fourth inning after Uribe tied it up. Also in the fifth and sixth innings two runners were left on. After a while, that is going to catch up to any team.

Casey Blake led off the seventh inning with a solo home run breaking the tie. That chased Buehrle out of the game and Ozzie calling on the bullpen to keep things in check. Neal Cotts came on and with one out Coco Crisp and Jhonny Peralta hit back to back singles. "Ball basher" Travis Hafner doubled scoring Crisp and moving Peralta to third. Cliff Politte came in to get Grady Sizemore to hit a ball that Joe Crede made a good play on to turn the much needed double play to keep the score 5-3 Indians.

The fun started in the Sox half of the seventh. Carl Everett got Jake Westbrook out of the game by hitting a one out double that stuck on the padding on the right field fense. Bobby Howry came in from the Cleveland bullpen and you would've thought he was wearing his old White Sox uniform. Howry did what he did best when he called the South Side his home...blow games. He walked Paul Konerko and served up a double to A.J. Pierzynski that scored Everett. Jermaine Dye was intentionally walked to get to Aaron Rowand. After seeing a few pitches from Howry, Rowand hit a sac fly to right field to tie the game scoring Konerko. Casey Blake's throw home was cut off by first basemen Jose Hernandez who tried to get Pierzysnki trying to move to third base. The throw was whipped past a diving Aaron Boone allowing Pierzysnki to score putting the Sox up 6-5.

The Indians threatend with two outs in the eighth inning. Cliff Politte came in with two outs and one on. He gave up a bloop single to put runners on the corners. Ozzie came out of the dugout with Marte warming up in the bullpen. Ozzie was greeted with boos from the fans but Politte was left in. The moved payed off. Coco Crisp hit a ball that made Uribe move to his left and fired the ball to first to get the final out of the inning.

Bobby Jenks came in to pitch the ninth. He walked Jhonny Peralta on four pitches to start things off. Sox fans held their breath as Travis Hafner walked to the plate. But, Jenks got Hafner looking at strike three for the first out. Victor Martinez hit a ball that went over the head of Aaron Rowand to allow Peralta to move to third base. He scored to tie the game when Grady Sizemore grounded out.

The Sox couldn't win the game in their half of the ninth when they left the bases loaded moving the game to extra innings, a place where the Sox were 0-6 at home this year. Dustin Hermanson came on to pitch a scoreless tenth inning to set the stage for the Sox half of the tenth. Joe Crede led off and quickly ended the game on a 422ft walk off home run sending the loud and energetic crowd into a frenzy.

With the 7-6 Sox win, their lead in the A.L. Central moves up 3 1/2 games over the Cleveland Indians. Tomorrow, Jon Garland will go for win number 18 as he goes against Scott Elarton for the Indians. Game time is 7:05 and it will be televised on Comcast Sports Net.

Ozzieball Update:
 11 runners left on base for the night, but Crede came through when the team needed it the most.
