Sweep the Twins...Check.

April 23 v. Minnesota


How was the trophy defended today?
Pitching, as usual; with plenty of help from the offense, as usual.

Short Take: Jose Contreras holds Minnesota bats in check as Sox batter Twins to complete 3-game sweep.

The White Sox made a statement this weekend against the Twins, wrapping up a three-game sweep with a 7-3 victory this afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field.

Jose Contreras was the winning pitcher, raising his record to (3-0) on the season by holding Minnesota to just two runs in 8 solid innings of work. Juan Uribe was the hitting star today, tacking 54 points onto his batting average with a 3 for 4 afternoon including two home runs.

The Twins actually got on the board in the top of the first, scoring a run on a walk followed by a single and a sacrifice fly to take a brief 1-0 lead. The Sox tied the game up in the third off Twins starter Carlos Silva. Scott Podsednik led off the inning with a double, and ultimately scored on a sacrifice fly by designated hitter Jim Thome to tie the game at 1. Thome, incidentally, saw his consecutive games with a run scored streak come to an end today at 17.

The Sox almost added a couple more runs in the third, but Torii Hunter reached over the centerfield wall and robbed Paul Konerko of a two-run home run. The Sox would take the lead for good in the 4th, thanks to back-to-back home runs by Joe Crede and Uribe that put the Sox ahead 3-1. Contreras continued to have his way with the Twins lineup until the 6th, when Joe Mauer homered to draw the Twins to within a run at 3-2. The Sox proceeded to deliver the knockout punch to Silva in the bottom half of the 6th, highlighted by Uribe's 3-run blast. Rookie centerfielder Brian Anderson followed Uribe with a home run of his own to straightaway center, putting the Sox up 7-2. The score remained that way until the 9th, when Minnesota scored a meaningless run off reliever Cliff Politte to make the final score 7-3.

The defending World Series Champs (it's just so fun to type that) complete a 9-game homestand with a gaudy 8-1 record, including the current 8-game winning streak. The Sox now sport a (13-5) record, tops in the AL and tied with Houston for best record in baseball. They now take their wrecking crew out West, with the first stop in Seattle. Jon Garland (2-1, 9.18) looks to keep the roll going against Jamie Moyer (0-2, 4.07). Gametime tomorrow night is 9:05 pm CDT, and will be telecast on CSN.
