Offensive Soxplosion

May 23rd vs. Oakland Athletics


How was the trophy defended today?
Offense, offense, and more offense!

Short Take: The Palehose's constant offensive attack is just too much for Oakland to withstand.

After an awe-inspiring comeback win last night, the Sox decided to bring out the big bats in order to help out their struggling #5 starter, Javier Vazquez, to his first victory in his last three starts. Winning a World Series sure does a lot to cure whatever has ailed an organization, and it's looking like the Sox collective struggles against the Oakland Athletics are beginning to dissipate, as they scored early and often to the tune of a 9-3 romp.

It wasn't too long before the Sox had a healthy lead on the scoreboard. In the opening frame, Scott Podsednik walked on four pitches from a once dominant Kirk Saarloos, advancing on an Alex Cintron groundout. He came home with the help of an errant throw from Saarloos on a stolen third base. Saarloos appeared out of sorts after that, allowing Jim Thome a free pass, which Paul Konerko took advantage of by depositing a pitch into the left field stands. Jermaine Dye, the next batter, duplicated Konerko's bomb, giving the Sox a 4-0 lead after the opening frame in which the Sox completely batted around. Thome homered in the next frame to increase the Sox lead to 5-0.

Oakland got three of those runs back in the third inning of play. After Mark Ellis singled and advanced to third on a hit by Nick Swisher, Eric Chavez homered near where the Core of the Core area was last night. Fortunately, those three runs were the only ones Vazquez and the rest of the Sox pitching staff would surrender all night.

Our beloved Palehose scored another run in the bottom of the fourth, as Juan Uribe doubled, advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Podsednik, and scored on an RBI single by Cintron. In the sixth, they closed the scoring in a messy inning...for Chokeland! Cintron got on thanks to grounding into a fielder's choice and advanced to second on a throwing error by Oakland relief pitcher Santiago Casilla, scoring on a double by Thome. After Konerko walked, AJ Pierzynski got his first hit of the game, which allowed Thome to score. Konerko followed Thome home when Joe Crede got into the action with a single of his own, which brought the score to the final outcome of 9-3.

No scoring occurred during the entire last third of the game, which was definitely fine in a game of which our Palehose made a mockery of Oakland. They have a great chance of completing a three-game sweep tomorrow night, as ace Mark Buehrle takes the mound facing Dan Haren, who is currently 4-3 with a 3.86 ERA. Let's see about keeping the wonderful attendance going by purchasing a ticket to tomorrow's game (if you don't have a ticket already). Gametime is set at 7:05 PM Chicago time and can be seen on Comcast Sports Net Chicago (or heard on WSCR for those unable to watch on television).

Ozzieball Update:
Scott Podsednik, the King of Ozzieball, got into Kirk Saarloos' head early, as he stole third and scored on an errant throw in the first inning tonight.
