BUEHRLE NO-HITS RANGERS!!!

April 18 vs. Texas Rangers

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Prime Rib
Top of the line tonight for Buehrle and the Sox!

Short Take:   The headline says it all!

Not since Wilson Alverez in 1991 a White Sox pitcher has thrown a no-hitter. Tonight, Mark Buehrle changed all that on a chilly night on the South Side. Not enough can be said about Mark Buehrle's masterpiece on this night ending the Sox three game skid in a big way coupled with three huge home runs and some amazing defense behind him.

Just last weekend Jose Contreras surrendered a single hit to Cleveland hitters, but his defense let him down, not to mention his five walks. Tonight, Buehrle had everything working for him leaving Rangers hitters baffled and frustrated all night. The lone baserunner, Sammy Sosa no less, reached first base on a walk, but was quickly erased when Sosa was caught thinking about steriods and was picked off by Mark's always quick move to first.

The bats finally came around tonight thankfully. Jim Thome connected for two solo home runs in the third and seventh innings. Jermaine Dye won a hard fought battle at the plate with the bases loaded and jacked a line drive grand slam to the White Sox bullpen in the fifth.

All Buehrle needed was one...and some stellar play beind him. In the third inning Jerry Hairston Jr. was robbed of extra bases when Joe Crede dived on a hot shot line drive and was able to fire the ball to Paul Konerko who made a wonderful pick up to just get a diving Hairston. The close play caused Hairston to fip a lid and go George Brett on the 1st base umpire and was quickly tossed from the game. Buehrle then crusied the rest of the way, 106 pitches it took for Buehrle to dismantle the Rangers lineup. Eight strikeouts while facing the minimum 27 batters on the night.

The 25,390 in attendance tonight certianly will have a memory to last a lifetime. Tomorrow, Javier Vazquez has huge shoes to fill when he takes his 2-0 record to the mound trying to outduel Vicente Padilla. Game time is 7:11pm and the game will be televised on Comcast SportsNet.

Back to the Grind Update:
 Throwing a no no is a good way to keep your opponents in the "L" column.
