Up Where We Belong--In First Place!

April 16 vs. Toronto Blue Jays


How was the trophy defended today?
A little bit of everything

Short Take: Happy Easter, as the Sox continue to parade their offense amid April showers.

Final score: Sox 6, Blue Jays 4. Despite the ominous skies, the game got off to a very nice start. Freddy’s velocity was still down, but he got the first two batters out fairly quickly. He walked the next two, but then got Lyle Overbay to ground out to end the threat. Then in the bottom of the frame, Scott Podsednik laced one to the right field wall and turned on the speed for a triple. Tad Iguchi singled him in, then stole second. Towers retired Jim Thome and Paul Konerko, but Jermaine Dye slapped one out and, all of a sudden, the lead was 3-0. Freddy looked sharp in the top of the second, then in the bottom, Pods struck again with a single up the middle, followed by his first stolen base of the year. Yet another bomb off the bat of Thome—I guess we’d better start getting used to it!—and the score was 5-0. Freddy got the first batter in the top of the third—then the skies opened up.

Following a 42-minute rain delay, the game continued with an uneventful third inning. Nothing much happened in the top of the fourth, but then in the bottom of the inning, after the first two Sox hitters had been retired, Thome singled. The fleet-footed DH then scored on a double from fellow speedster Konerko, who went to third on a wild pitch. Dye walked and a grounder from AJ closed out the inning. But the Sox had added an insurance run, which proved valuable because of what happened in the top of the fifth. With the rain coming down increasingly hard, things got wild, especially Freddy, who gave up four walks. The Jays batted around and scored four runs before Freddy struck out Eric Hinske to end the inning. Then the skies opened up—again. After four-and-a –half innings, Sox 6, Blue Jays 4.

And as Porky Pig would say, “That’s All, Folks!” Game, set, match. And the shortest summary paragraph I’ve ever written. Now let’s get after those Royals!
