Close win

September 29 at Minnesota Twins


How was the trophy defended today?
Trying to keep the Twins from taking our division title!

Short Take:  Freddy Garcia pitches a masterful game against the Twins in his final start of 2006.

Jermaine Dye hit his 44th home run of the season in the first inning of tonights game to put the South Siders up 1-0 against the Minnesota Twins to start this final three game series of 2006 for our Sox. Looking at these final three games a few weeks ago most Sox fans would've thought the season was going to be coming down to these matchups. Instead, the only thing on the line is who is going to win the Central, Twins or Tigers.

The Sox and Freddy Garcia did their part in trying to keep the Twins from winning their fourth divison title in five years with their 4-3 win tonight backed by Garcia's 7 1/3 innings pitched only giving up an earned run and scattering five hits. Some believe this will was his final start in a White Sox uniform, but that remains to be seen.

Jim Thome added to his RBI total in the fourth with a single to make it 2-0 Sox. In the fifth , Alex Cintron hit a solo home run to put the Sox up 3-0, and in the ninth A.J. Pierzynski put the Sox up 4-1 with a RBI single.

The four runs were enough for Freddy to plow through the Twins lineup. But, Bobby Jenks came in for the "save" in the ninth and made things very interesting. Nick Punto singled over the head of Joe Crede to start the ninth. Luis Rodriguez walked to put runners on first and second for Joe Mauer. Bobby was able to strike out Mauer on a check swing that Mauer didn't agree with, but, Michael Cuddyer made up for it by hitting a double to score the two runners making it a 4-3 Sox lead. Jenks then struck out Justin Morneau before loading the bases on a Torii Hunter single and a Lew Ford walk. But, pinch hitter and ex-Cub Phil Nevin was unable to be a hero night. Nevin struck out to end the game keeping the Twins tied for the AL Central lead.

Jenks picked up his 41st save of the year and Freddy Garcia picked up his record to 17-9. The Sox also uped their record to 89-71. Tomorrow, the Sox will rise early for a 11am start against the Twins when Jon Garland will try for his 18th win of the season. The game can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.
