Good Enough.

May 28th at Toronto


How was the trophy defended today?
Solid offensive effort backed up with strong relief pitching spells w-i-n.

Short Take:Sox get bats going early, hold off late charge by Jays to avert sweep in Toronto.

The White Sox hit Jays rookie pitcher Ty Taubenheim early and often, scoring 5 runs in the first three innings en route to a 7-5 victory this afternoon at Rogers Centre in Toronto. Sox pitcher Jon Garland cruised through the first 5 innings, allowing just one run on two hits until allowing 3 runs in the 6th and another in the 7th allowing Toronto to get back in the game.

Scott Podsednik got things moving right away, leading off the game with a triple and scoring the game's first run on a sacrifice fly by second baseman Alex Cintron. Taubenheim loaded the bases on walks in the second before allowing an RBI single to Cintron to make the score 2-0 Sox. Jim Thome then drew a bases-loaded walk to put the Sox ahead 3-0, and Podsednik later alertly scored from third on an errant throw back to the pitcher by Jays catcher Gregg Zaun, putting the Sox up 4-0.

Garland surrendered a leadoff home run to Lyle Overbay in the bottom of the second to put Toronto on the board. The Sox promptly got that run back in the top of the third thanks to a leadoff double by Jermaine Dye and an RBI single by Joe Crede and the Sox were up 5-1. After Dye led off the 5th with a home run, the lead was 6-1 and with Garland sailing the rout was on. Unfortunately the Jays had other ideas, as they touched Garland for three runs in the bottom of the 6th on back to back home runs by Troy Glaus and Overbay. Glaus' shot was a two-run blast, and following Overbay's second home run of the game the lead was down to 6-4. Garland was relieved by Brandon McCarthy after allowing a leadoff double in the bottom of the 7th, the first career hit for Jays SS Luis Figueroa. Figueroa would eventually score to pull the Jays to within a run at 6-5. McCarthy buckled down and overcame a two-out two-base error by Podsednik to get out of the inning with the Sox clinging to their one-run lead.

Rob Mackowiak homered in the 8th to give the Sox an insurance run. After allowing a leadoff walk in the 8th, McCarthy induced a double play and kept the Jays off the board. Bobby Jenks came in to pitch the 9th, and he pitched a perfect inning to earn his 14th save of the season and preserve the 7-5 victory.

There's no rest for the weary as the Sox (32-17) head over to Cleveland (24-25) for a 4-game series against last season's divisional runners-up. Javier Vazquez (5-3, 4.25) will start things off against Cliff Lee (3-4, 4.65). Gametime is 12:05 pm CDT and will be televised on WGN. Don't forget to honor our veterans tomorrow on Memorial Day!
