Stickin' it to the Twinkies

September 30 at Minnesota Twins


How was the trophy defended today?
The way it was won in 2005: awesome pitching and timely hitting.

Short Take: The Sox score early and often and hold off a late surge to defeat the cream filled snacks.

Alas, what might have been. On the final weekend of the season, the Sox continued to stick it to the Minnesota Twins, frustrating their hopes to clinch the A.L. Central Division. On the shoulders (and giraffe-like legs) of Jon Garland, the Sox won their second in a row, 6-3. If only the good guys could have performed at this level a little more often this season, we would all be making post-season plans today.

For the penultimate game of the season, one that featured a rare 11:00am start and a 3:00pm curfew (in order to accommodate a college football game later in the day), Ozzie Guillen trotted out a lineup that was heavy on the backups. But the Sox team that took the field was definitely hungry, with some solid performances by thirdbaseman Josh Fields and rightfielder Ryan Sweeney, both with the glove and at the plate.

In the top of the third, Ross Gload doubled and Fields walked. Rob Mackowiak then doubled Gload home and Fields to third. Fields and Macko were cashed in on a single by Tadahito Iguchi, who followed up by promptly stealing second. Iguchi would score on a groundout by Sweeney, and it was 4-0 Sox.

While Garland rolled through the Twinkiesí order (he threw four 1-2-3 innings today), the Sox added another in the fifth. Macko doubled again, and was driven home on a single by Sweeney. Iguchi-san capped off the Sox scoring with a solo home run in the seventh to make it 6-0.

Garland entered the ninth looking for his second shutout of the season, but got himself in a jam and couldnít squirm out. Nick Punto reached first base on an errant throw by shortstop Alex Cintron. Mike Redmond followed with a single, and Michael Cuddyer made it hurt with a three-run blast that ended Garlandís day. Matt Thornton came in to finish the job and the Sox were winners 6-3.

So with the season winding down, everybody raise your Mojitos and sing a toast to the White Sox Ė so near yet so far. Over to you, Mr. Tom Waits:

Why thereís Miss Kelsey! She taught dance at our school. And olí Johnny OíToole Iíll still beat you at pool. So donít cry for me, For Iím going away, And Iíll be back some lucky day. Donít cry for me, For Iím going away, And Iíll be back...some lucky day...
