Grand Mockery

June 16th at Cincinnati Reds


How was the trophy defended today?
The Sox mashed their way to victory tonight, causing Cincinnati to surrender early.

Short Take: Joe Crede, Freddy Garcia, and the rest of the Sox make a complete mockery of the Cincinnati Reds at the Great American Ballpark, blistering their opponents 12-4.

Since the inception of interleague play, the White Sox have completely dominated the Cincinnati Reds, going 10-2 against their NL Central foes. Considering the past three starts for each of the struggling starting pitchers (Freddy Garcia for our Sox and Brandon Claussen for the Reds), the outcome of this game seemed to be rather "iffy" before the first pitch; but, that would be the last of the uncertainty of this game, as our Sox made a meal out of Cincinnati in the first three innings, putting this game away early, coasting to a 12-4 annihalation of the Reds.

The first inning turned out to be just grand for our Palehose. After Tadahito Iguchi singled and advanced on a fielding error by Ken Griffey Jr., Paul Konerko and Jermaine Dye walked the bases loaded for Joe Crede, who launched a hanger from Claussen just fair down near the left field foul pole to hit his third career grand slam. You can put THAT on the board! Already, the Sox had a 4-0 lead! Cincinnati showed the only signs of life the entire game in the bottom of the same inning. After Filipe Lopez and Griffey singled, Rich Aurilia hit a round-tripper of his own, just not as deadly as Crede's, cutting the Sox' lead to 4-3 after the first inning of play.

The Good Guys took to the scoreboard once again the next inning! After Brian Anderson led off with a double and was bunted to third by a laughing Garcia, Scott Podsednik singled him in. Podsednik would score all the way from first on a double down the third base line by Konerko, increasing the Sox' lead to 6-3 after 2 innings.

The Sox did not even think of letting up in the third, as their relentless attack added four more runs to the scoreboard. Crede and Chris Widger both reached on misfortunes by Claussen (Crede singled off Claussen's leg, while Widger bunted his way on due to Claussen's inability to pick up the ball). After Juan Uribe doubled off the base of the left field wall, scoring Crede, Claussen was relieved by "Cy" Mays. Mays wouldn't do any better, as Anderson singled in Widger, stole second on a strikeout by Garcia, and would score (along with Uribe) on a single by Podsednik. With just three innings in the books, our Palehose already had a double-digit run total!

With the bulk of the scoring complete, and the game virtually in the bag, the Sox struck again in the sixth with a gift run. Konerko and Dye both singled. The 15th-ranked defense in the NL struck again, as Scott Hatteberg allowed Konerko to score on a throwing error of Widger's ground ball. Our generous Sox decided to give a pity run back to Cincinnati in the form of a lead-off home run by Austin Kearns in the bottom of the next inning. It was 11-4 Good Guys after 7 innings of play.

To put an exclaimation point on this one, Iguchi led off with a walk in the eighth, advanced on a wild pitch by Rick White, who has become a distant memory for our organization, and went to third on a single up the middle by Ross Gload. Nearly everyone on our side involved in this game got on base in some way! Dye would sacrifice Iguchi in, scoring the final run of the game.

You could see white flags all over boats on the Ohio River tonight, as the Reds didn't have very much of a prayer in this one! There is nothing more beautiful on a mid-June evening than to see our DEFENDING WORLD SERIES CHAMPION CHICAGO WHITE SOX dominate the competition! They get another crack at the Reds tomorrow night, as our Cy Young candidate Jose Contreras hits the bump against Eric Milton. Gametime is at an unusual 5:10 start Chicago time and can be seen on WGN.

Ozzieball Update:
After singling Chris Widger in during the third inning, Brian Anderson stole second on a strikeout by Freddy Garcia and scored on a hit by Scott Podsednik. Great heads-up baserunning on Anderson's part!
