Winning Konerko-Style

September 9th vs. Cleveland Indians


How was the trophy defended today?
An early offensive onslaught provided all that was needed.

Short Take: Paul Konerko accounts for half the Sox' RBIs in 2 swings, as our beloved Palehose took tonight's game 10-8 over the much-hated Cleveland Indians.

In efforts to gain some more ground in the AL Central Race, Jon Garland and our Palehose took the mound for the third time in this four-game series at Comiskey against the hated Cleveland Indians. Paul Konerko became the main offensive machine, getting half the RBIs on 2 swings, as our Sox got a huge early lead and held on late for a 10-8 Saturday night victory.

Our Sox gave Cleveland all kinds of trouble in the first three innings. With both Tadahito Iguchi and Jim Thome aboard in the first frame, Paul Konerko hit his first of 2 round-trippers, giving our Sox an early 3-0 lead. The very next inning, Smartball of the greatest kind was present, as Scott Podsednik singled, stole second, and scored on a single by Iguchi, increasing our lead to four. The offensive onslaught would continue in the third, as Juan Uribe homered for the second straight night. 1/3 of the way into the game, our vested men had built a comfortable 5-0 lead.

Our pitcher of the year would give up his first run of the game in the fourth, as Hector Luna got Shin-So Choo in, who led off the inning with a tripple, cutting the lead to 5-1.

Our Sox doubled their run total in the middle third of the game. Iguchi, Jermaine Dye, and Thome made some noise in the fourth inning all with two outs. After Iguchi doubled, baseball's MVP tripled to score Iguchi, and Thome singled to score Dye. A six-run lead had been built. After a scoreless fifth inning, our Sox put another crooked number on the board in the sixth before recording a single out. After MVP homered, Thome walked and came home on Konerko's second four-bagger of the night. A laughable 10-1 lead had been attained 2/3 of the way into the game.

Things have been anything but easy for our Sox since the All Star Break, and that would prove to be the case once again tonight, as Cleveland put a seven-spot up in right before the Seventh Inning Stretch (Garland's night had been complete by then, as Boone Logan replaced him to start the inning). With the bases loaded, Casey Blake singled to bat in Joe Inglett. Kelly Shoppach then walked in a run, and later Blake and Franklin Gutierrez would score on a single by Ryan Garko. To cap off the scoring, Kevin Kouzmanoff hit a three-run shot, and the Indians had made a game out of this, with the Sox' lead cut to 10-8.

Mike MacDougal and Matt Thornton threw a donut on the scoreboard in the nineth, allowing the Men in Black to hold on, decreasing their divisional deficit by another game. We now trail Detroit by only 3.5 games, remaining only 0.5 games behind the Twins for the Wild Card. With three weeks left and a three-game series left with both of those teams, this is going to be one fun, crazy race to the finish line. Why not make things even more uncomfortable for our AL Central foes by putting a major hurting on CC Sabathia and the Indians one more time tomorrow afternoon! Gametime is at 1:05 and can be seen on Comcast Sports Net.
