Vazquez Spoils Cleveland's Home Opener

April 13th at Cleveland Indians

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Cleveland Injun
Homers by Uribe and Dye put a spell on the Injuns.

Short Take:In the first recorded home game of the season for Cleveland, Javier Vazquez and the Sox find a way to spoil the party.

If you were to survey Sox fans before the season began, most would probably not believe that Javier Vazquez would be the first starter to reach two victories, let alone in his first two starts. That alone made Friday night's game special, as the offense helped out just enough, to lead our beloved Sox to a hard-fought 6-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

Cleveland has made a habit of scoring early against our Sox so far in this young season. They didn't change that feat tonight, as Grady Seizemore scored on a sacrifice fly by Travis "Pronk" Hafner in the initial inning. Fortunately, our Sox answered right back the next inning in basically the same fashion, with Jermaine Dye scoring on a sacrifice fly by Juan Uribe. The 1-1 dead-lock lasted a couple of innings, until the 4th frame.

During the fourth, our Sox netted half of their runs, all compliments to Uribe's four-bagger, scoring both Joe Crede and Tadahito Iguchi. The Sox had a 4-1 lead they would never relinquish.

In the bottom of the same inning, Cleveland tried to get things going again; however, they were only able to muster a single run of their own, as Jhonny Peralta scored on a single by Andy Marte. The Good Guys put the hammer down once again with another big blast in the next inning, this time by Dye, scoring Konerko in the process, leading to a nice, comfortable 6-2 lead for our baseball heros, chasing Indian starter Fausto Carmona in the process.

All Cleveland could do was marvel at our greatness, adding a couple of token runs in the bottom of the seventh and nineth, both scored by Ryan Garko, on singles by Peralta and Josh Barfield. No biggie, as the game ended with our Sox getting into the "W" column once again. They look to get their third win in a row tomorrow afternoon, as John Danks takes on Paul Byrd at 12:05 pm Chicago time on WGN. Let's Go Sox!!!
