Northern Explosion

August 4th at Toronto Blue Jays


How was the trophy defended today?
Pitching! Ozzie Ball! Defense! Long Ball! Bullpen! Closer! All of the Above!

Short Take: The Sox come back bigtime against one of the league’s toughest pitchers.

If the first two innings were any indication, this game was not going to be fun to watch. However, a combination of smallball, long ball, and stellar pitching enabled the Good Guys to pull out an important win. Final score, Sox 6, Toronto 4.

After Scotty Podsednik grounded out and Tadahito Iguchi struck out swinging in the first, Jim Thome and Paul Konerko worked pitcher Roy Halliday for successive walks. But the Sox failed to capitalize, with Jermaine Dye grounding to third to end the inning. In the bottom of the frame, Jon Garland got into trouble, allowing the first two Blue Jays hitters to reach on two straight singles. Vernon Wells struck out, but Troy Glaus homered to center and the score stood at 3-0 after one. Not a good thing. The second inning was uneventful, but in the third, with one out, Pods singled, then stole second. Iguchi sacrificed him to third and he came home on a double to deep center off the bat of Big Jim. Paulie followed with his second straight walk, but JD grounded out to end the inning. After three, Jays 3, Sox 1.

In the fourth, A.J. Pierzynski and Joe Crede started things off with singles. Then with two out, a double by Pods scored A.J., closing the gap to one run. Jon continued to deal in the bottom of the frame and in the fifth, with Thome on third and Paulie on first, A.J. homered to deep center, circling the bases to the usual chorus of boos, and the comeback was complete. Sox 5, Jays 3. It stayed that way until the top of the ninth, when the team decided to break out some more smallball. With two out, Paulie singled. Ross Gload came in to run for him and promptly stole second, scoring on a single by Jermaine. Brandon McCarthy had relieved Garland in the seventh and kept the Jays in check, and in the bottom of the ninth, Bad Bobby Jenks came in to close things out. With two out, he was touched for a solo home run by Troy Glaus, Toronto’s resident pest, but then he struck out Lyle Overbay to end the game and notch his 30th save.

Our guys look to make it two in a row tomorrow behind Javier Vazquez. Game time, 3:05 Central on WGN.

Ozzieball Update:
Eight singles, four walks, three doubles, one home run. Seems about right.
