Recipe for Success, Chicago-style!

April 25 at Seattle Mariners


How was the trophy defended today?
Pitching! Ozzie Ball! Defense! Long Ball! Sox used them all tonight!

Short Take: Another wild one from the World Champs! The Sox break out the big bats and get their revenge for last night’s loss—with a vengeance!

Well, now; that’s more like it! Can this team cook, or what? Let’s see now: Take five home runs, a few walks, a bunch of double plays, and a slew of singles. Stir in great starting pitching by Javy Vazquez. Sprinkle in some doubles and triples. Mix well. Result? SOX 13, Mariners 3. This one started off with two routine fly balls off the bats of Scott Podsednik and Tadahito Iguchi. Then Jim Thome singled and Paul Konerko walked. It looked like the Sox had something going, but the Mariners’ starting pitcher, Joel Pineiro, induced Jermaine Dye to strike out. The Mariners got a leadoff hit from Ichiro, which was erased when he was doubled off as a result of a fine catch by Brian Anderson, who seems to be getting more comfortable in center with every game. (Ichiro’s single would be Seattle’s only hit until the fifth inning.) The Sox went down in order in the second and Richie Sexson started the Mariners off with the Dreaded Leadoff Walk. But Carl Everett flied out and Beltre hit into a double play to put an end to any threat. In the top of the third, Anderson proved that the Sox too were capable of working the Dreaded Leadoff Walk. A single by Pods followed, then Anderson and Pods pulled off a thrilling double steal, and Iguchi doubled into the left field corner, scoring them both. But the guys weren’t done yet. Thome sacrificed Tad to third, PK followed with the first of the evening’s home runs, and it was Sox 4, Mariners 0.

In the bottom of the frame, a mini-threat by the Mariners ended when Yuniesky Betancourt got picked off first. In the top of the fourth, the Sox struck again when Joe Crede went yard with the night’s second home run and Dye hit one out in the fifth. Then, in the top of the sixth, the Sox broke things open in true Ozzieball fashion. Three walks, a couple of singles, and a double resulted in three more Sox runs. Ichiro continued to be a pest when he singled in the bottom of the sixth, but another double play took care of things. The Sox came up with their fourth home run—this one courtesy of Iguchi—in the top of the seventh. However, in the bottom of the seventh, things got a little tense. After Vazquez gave up a leadoff walk and a single to center, Boone Logan came on in relief. This was not Logan’s night; he hit Carl Everett and then walked Adrian Beltre with the Mariners’ first run. Kenji Johjima hit a sac fly, but Logan was able to get the next two batters. Sox 11, Mariners 2 at the end of seven.

In the top of the eighth, the Sox got the two runs back when Ross Gload, in for PK, tripled, followed by JD’s second home run of the night. However, Logan continued to struggle in the bottom of the inning, hitting the first batter. Jose Lopez followed with a double and the Mariners had first and third with no outs. Logan struck out a batter, then gave up an RBI single. However, a timely double play ended the inning before more harm could be done. The Sox went 1-2-3 in the ninth and the Mariners were unable to get anything going in their half. And so the game ended. And another winning streak began!

Ozzieball Update:
A double steal got the team off and running and some stellar defense, including four double plays, kept the Mariners off balance.
