WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Comeback Kids

June 28th at Pittsburgh


How was the trophy defended today?
Another late-inning comeback supported by stellar relief pitching.

Short Take: Sox recover from 3-0 defecit to keep Bucs on the skids.

The White Sox bats were silent for the first six innings tonight, but a 4-run 7th inning turned the tide as the Sox rallied to beat the Pirates 4-3.

Freddy Garcia had a quality start, allowing 3 runs in 6 innings of work for the victory. The game was scoreless until Jose Bautista hit a solo home run off Garcia in the bottom of the third inning to put Pittsburgh up 1-0. The Pirates tacked on another run in the 4th inning on an RBI single by pitcher Paul Maholm, and went up 3-0 in the 6th courtesy of a solo home run by Jeromy Burnitz.

Maholm held the Sox offense to only three hits through the first six innings. The game would change in the top of the 7th. Jermaine Dye led off the 7th with a single, and AJ Pierzynski and Joe Crede followed with consecutive singles to load the bases. That set the stage for tonight's hero, Juan Uribe. Uribe ripped a triple into the right centerfield gap to clear the bases and tie the score at 3. With two outs, Scott Podsednik singled off old friend Damaso Marte to drive in Uribe and put the Sox up by a run. Now it was up to the bullpen to make it hold up. Augustin Montero, who is headed back to Charlotte tonight to make room for Cliff Politte, pitched a scoreless 7th. Matt Thornton turned in yet another impressive performance by striking out the side in the 8th, and Bobby Jenks pitched a scoreless 9th for his 24th save of the year.

The Pirates have now lost 13 straight games, and the Sox will look to extend that streak to 14 tomorrow afternoon. Jose Contreras (8-0, 3.15) squares off against Zach Duke (5-7, 4.86) as the Sox will try to complete the sweep in Pittsburgh. Gametime is 11:35 am CDT and will be televised on CSN.
