WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

All is not lost

August 27 v. Minnesota


How was the trophy defended today?
Great effort by Buehrle today, along with ample run support.

Short Take: Sox, Buehrle avert sweep as playoff race tightens.

The White Sox rebounded from two consecutive gut-wrenching losses to beat the Twins by a 6-1 score this afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field. Mark Buehrle hurled a gem, allowing just 1 run in 7.1 innings of work to even his record at (11-11) on the season.

The Twins jumped ahead with a run in the first inning courtesy of three consecutive singles off Buehrle. That would be all the runs they would score, as Buehrle would shut them down the rest of the way. Mike MacDougal pitched the final 1.2 innings to close out the victory.

The Sox took a 2-1 lead in the third inning off losing pitcher Carlos Silva. Scott Podsednik reached on a bunt single and advanced to third base on an error by shortstop Jason Bartlett which allowed Tadahito Iguchi to reach safely. Jermaine Dye singled to score Podsednik and tie the game at 1. Paul Konerko doubled Iguchi home, and the Sox had a lead which they would not relinquish.

Following a two-out single by Konerko in the 5th, A.J. Pierzynski homered off Silva to put the Sox ahead 4-1. Joe Crede then went back-to-back with Pierzynski, delivering his 28th home run of the year to make the score 5-1. Juan Uribe homered to lead off the 6th inning, the Sox' third home run in four at-bats off Silva to put them ahead by the eventual final score of 6-1. As previously mentioned, Mike MacDougal relieved Buehrle in the 8th and allowed just one hit and recorded two strikeouts in 1.2 innings of work to preserve the win.

The Sox now trail the Twins by a mere 0.5 games for the Wild Card, and the Tigers by 5.5 games for the division lead with 5 weeks left in the season. Tomorrow is an off day, and the pennant chase resumes on Tuesday night as Tampa comes to town for a 3-game series. Freddy Garcia (12-8, 4.99) faces Casey Fossum (6-5, 4.91) at 7:05 pm at U.s.Cellular Field. The game is also televised on CSN Chicago.
