One More To Go!

ALDS Game 2: October 5 vs. Boston Red Sox


Sox Magic Number:
9
"One more win gets us to the ALCS, and just a bit closer to the promise land!"

Short Take:  A 5-run fifth downs David Wells and wraps up Game 2 of the ALDS.

After yesterday's all out beatdown of the World Champions, some Sox fans were wondering if their beloved Pale Hose would have anything left in the tank to take a 2-0 lead in the ALDS. After watching Mark Buehrle in the first inning, you would've thought a 14-run outburst may be needed.

Buehrle didn't seem to have it when he took the mound in his first postseason start. Johnny Damon reached first base on a ball that Joe Crede couldn't handle. Edgar Renteria doubled to put runners in scoring position for the heart of the Red Sox order. ESPN's love child David Ortiz struck out swinging for the first out, but Manny Ramirez hit a RBI single that scored Damon and Renteria to put the BoSox up 2-0.

David Wells retired the Sox in order in the first inning, and got a double play in the second to keep our Sox in check. The Red Sox would take advantage of Buehrle again in the third inning. They added two more runs on a Jason Varitek single with the bases loaded and another Red Sox crossed the plate to make it 4-0 on a Trot Nixon ground out.

But everything fell apart for the Red Sox in the fifth inning. A jihad was launched on David Wells and when the dust settled, our Sox had the lead.

The inning started off with a single by Carl Everett which was followed by Aaron Rowand's double that landed on the left field line, Everett scored from first to make it 4-1. Rowand moved to third on a A.J. Pierzynski ground out. Rowand then scored on Joe Crede's single up the middle. Juan Uribe came up with one on and one out and hit a perfect double play ball to Tony Graffanino who pulled his best Bill Buckner impression. The ball went through the legs allowing Crede to move to third base. After Scott Podsednik popped out, Tadahito Iguchi came up and launched a three run home run to the seats in left field to take the 5-4 lead and blowing the roof off the cell.

Buehrle then slammed the door on the Red Sox. In the sixth inning Buehrle pitched over a lead off single by Jason Varitek and in the seventh he got David Ortiz to ground out to end the inning stranding another Red Sox runner.

Bobby Jenks came on in the eighth and pitch a scoreless inning and came out in the ninth to close it out. With one out, Tony Graffanino doubled putting Sox fans on the edge of their seats. Johnny Damon failed to move the runner over by popping up to Pierzynski and Edger Renteria ended the game with a ground out for the 5-4 White Sox winner!

The South Siders take a 2-0 lead in the ALDS. Thursday our Sox will travel to Boston for Friday afternoons Game 3 matchup with Freddy Garcia taking on Tim Wakefield for Boston. Game time is 3pm on ESPN2. So many Sox fans will be catching that "cold" that is going around eh?

Ozzieball Update:
 The Sox got some breaks with Rowand's double landing just fair, and Tony giving one back to his former team.
