Masters of the Late Innings

June 17th at Cincinnati Reds


How was the trophy defended today?
The offense came through in the late innings of this game.

Short Take: Our Palehose got the bulk of their runs in the late stages of the game, had a balanced offensive attack, and scored just enough runs to beat Cincinnati for the 11th time in 13 games of interleague play.

The Sox' pitcher of the year up to this date looked to improve on his 15-game undefeated streak. Jose Contreras was set to take the mound against Eric Milton and his Cincinnati Reds--one of the teams our White Sox have completely dominated since the inception of interleague play. Though Contreras did not get a decision in the game, our Palehose still walked away with an 8-6 victory in front of thousands of Sox fans in Cincinnati.

The scoring would begin in the fourth, as the feisty Pablo Ozuna led off with a single up the middle and scored on a double down the third base line by Paul Konerko. This 1-0 Sox lead would be very short-lived, as the Reds countered with a crooked number in the bottom of the same frame. After Filipe Lopez tied it up with a lead off round-tripper, Rich Aurilia doubled past a sprawling Brian Anderson. He would score on a double by Scott Hatteberg, and Austin Kearns singled Hatteberg in, giving the Reds a 3-1 lead going after 4 innings of play.

The teams would see-saw in the sixth frame. For the second time in the game, Ozuna reached to lead off the inning, this time beating out an throw from deep short. Konerko would single him to second, and get over to the hot corner on a sac fly by Jermaine Dye. This set up a couple of scoring plays. AJ Pierzynski and Joe Crede both answered by each recording RBIs. Pierzynski singled Ozuna in, thanks to Adam Dunn's inability to make a diving catch in left field, while Crede singled in Konerko, tying the score at three runs a side. For the second time in the game, the Reds would score in the same inning. After Brandon Phillips and Hatteberg reached base, they advanced to become "ducks on the pond" on a wild pitch by Contreras, and both scored on a single by Kearns. Cincinnati had a 5-3 lead 2/3 of the way into the game.

The next couple of innings displayed the type of team our Palehose have become--the never-say-die type who will never quit. Scott Podsednik got into the scoring fun in the seventh inning, as he led off with a single, advanced to third on a single by Ozuna, and scored on a sacrifice by Dye, decreasing the Reds' lead to 5-4. Juan "Slappy" Uribe tied it up the next inning with a solo blast to deep left field, erasing the last lead for Cincinnati in the game.

Fans of almost every other team would have to be thinking of extra innings at this point with the score tied at five with one inning to play. Except for fans of our Sox, who can score at anytime! After Konerko walked and was pinch-run for by Ross Gload, Dye doubled Gload to third. Pierzynski walked the bases loaded, setting up something big for our Sox. Crede got his second and third RBIs of the game, as he hit a ground ball, which forced Pierzynski out at second, and allowed him to reach safely by a high throw to first by Phillips. With both Gload and Dye in, Uribe completed the scoring for our Sox in the inning by getting Crede all the way home. The Sox had built an 8-5 lead going into the last of the 9th inning, and you could see Cincinnati beginning to wither away.

The token run the Sox gave the Reds in the bottom of the nineth did nothing to really help the Reds' chances of a comeback. Cincinnati lost to our Sox fair and square, once again proving their dominance over their NL Central foe. Our Palehose can complete the sweep tomorrow morning, as they send Jon Garland to the mound to face Aaron Harang. Gametime is at 12:15 Chicago time and can be seen on Comcast Sports Net Chicago.

Ozzieball Update:
Ozzieball was not very apparent in tonight's game; but, it wasn't very much needed either, as the Sox' bats came through when needed.
