Podzilla Attacks!

June 23rd vs. Houston Astros


How was the trophy defended today?
Good pitching by Jose Contreras and the bat of Scott Podsednik.

Short Take: Scott Podsednik continues dominating the Houston Astros, Jose Contreras continues dominating the competition, and the Palehose continue chalking up more wins.

As far as rematches go, our Sox had a great capability of continuing their dominance over their opponents in last year's World Series by throwing out Jose Contreras' incredible stuff at the Houston Astros. When all was said and done, Scott Podesdnik continued to be an Astros killer, and Contreras set a franchise record for undefeated streak by a starting pitcher in the regular season (16), improving our record to 48-25 with a solid 7-4 victory Friday night.

Our Sox would put their feet down on Houston before very much of the game expired. In the second inning, after Jermaine Dye doubled and scored on a two-bagger by Joe Crede, Oak Lawn native Rob Makowiak singled to center field, knocking in Crede. Our Sox had built an early 2-0 lead.

When it appeared as if our Palehose would waste a golden opportunity a couple frames later, lightning struck! Dye, AJ Pierzynski, and Crede loaded the bases with nobody out; but, the next two batters would account for non-sacrificial outs. After Makowiak hit into a fielder's choice, forcing Dye out at home, and Uribe K'd, Podsednik came up to the plate. Pods dug in and made up for the inabilities of the previous two batters. Oh, did he ever! Pods hit the jackpot tonight by hitting the first grand slam of his career, giving the Sox a comfortable 6-0 lead.

Just when you thought the Astros would yell "uncle," they put up a three-spot the next inning on round-trippers by Chris Burke (with Adam Everett on) and Lance Berkman. Just before the 37,700 fans in attendance sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," the Astros added another run when Craig Biggo singled to left and scored on a double by Burke. Going into the seventh inning stretch, our Sox still had a 6-4 lead.

Our Sox were good for one last laugh in the eighth inning. Crede and Uribe combined to produce the last run of the game. Uribe doubled in Crede, who had previously reached on a single to center, closing the scoring.

And so, our Sox continued their mastery of Houston. Our men in black don't have much time to rest up, as they get back at it just past noon Chicago time. Home run hero Jon Garland looks to improve on his 6-3 record and will face Taylor Buckholz (4-6). Tune in to the broadcast on WFLD Chicago or any other FOX station that will broadcast the Sox' game.

Ozzieball Update:
Ozzieball qualities weren't present, not that it was necessary tonight.
