Business as Usual

June 15, at Texas


How was the trophy defended today?
Good pitching, good offense, and good defense = big win.

Short Take: Buehrle dominates Texas' bats, Sox offense pillages, plunders, and burns Rangers' pitching staff... just another day in the life of a World Champion.

After an ugly, temper-flaring loss on Wednesday, the Sox answered the Rangers with the ultimate retalitation.  They came out Thursday and soundly beat the Rangers with the embarrassing effeciency only a World Champ could provide.  Mark Buehrle through 8 very solid innigs, every started notched a base hit off the Rangers, and hell, even Matt Thornton threw a perfect inning.  All the parts equal an 8-2 depantsing of the Rangers as the Sox leave Arlington with 3 wins in 4 attempts.

The White Sox threatened in the first, but ran themselves out of a golden scoring chance when Pablo Ozuna was thrown out at third base.   No worries, as stated, Mark Buehrle was in control tonight.  The crafty lefty decimated Texas's line-up, allowing a 2-out walk in the first and a harmless lead-off single in the second and then promptly shutting down the Rangers' explosive offense for the next four innings.  That gave the Sox plenty of time to go to work on youngster John Rheinecker.  In the third, Juan Uribe broke the scoreless tie with a lead-off, solo home run.  However, the Sox really blew the doors off the game in the next inning.  The first five batters of the inning notched hits, with Paul Konerko, Jermaine Dye, Joe Crede, and Chris Widger notching back-to-back-to-back-to-back singles and scoring a run.  Uribe brought home the third run of the game with an RBI double, and Ozuna's single scored two more for a 5-nil lead.  Paul Konerko added the sixth run of the game off Joaquin Benoit with a 2-out single to score Ozuna.

The Rangers finally broke the shut out in the 6th.  Ian Kinsler drew a lead-off walk, the first Texan to reach base since the 2nd inning.  A double by Gary Matthews, Jr. moved him to scoring position and a ground out by Michael Young scored the first run of the game.  Matthews would score on a double by Mark Teixeira but the Sox still had a firm 6-2 lead.  At any rate, the Sox would get their runs back, flashing a little thunder and lighting.  In the 7th, with Joe Crede at third, Uribe laid down a suicide squeeze and in the 8th, Jim Thome clubbed a massive home run deep into the greenery in past centerfield.  Pick your poison!

After throwing 103 pitches in 90+-degree heat, Mark Buehrle was not allowed to go for the complete game, but Matt Thornton had a whale of an inning, setting Texas down 1-2-3.  The Sox now head for the Queen City for an interleague showdown with the Cincinnati Reds.  Freddy Garcia and Brandon Claussen will be on the hill for the series opener.  Comcast Sports Net will have the game and first pitch is at 6 o'clock.

Sox play long and small ball tonight, cranking out three extra base hits and scoring a run on a suicide squeeze play, to boot!
