Dank You Very Much

April 20th at Detroit Tigers

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Beef Stir-Fry
A mixture of offense and pitching add up to a White Sox victory!

Short Take:John Danks has a little bit of bad luck in his inability to secure his first victory in a Sox uniform; however, the Sox offense provides the team with enough of a boost to knock off the Detroit Tigers 5-4.

For the first time in the 2007 campaign, the last two American League champions were set to square off at Comerica Park. In a game that saw two unseasoned starters, John Danks left the mound trailing Chad Durbin and the Detroit Tigers; but, the Sox' bullpen held strong, while the Tigers' bullpen caved in. In the end, Detroit succumbed to Chicago's greatness in a 5-4 victory for our beloved--their third in a row.

The offense started off with teams trading solo shots from the top of the third to the top of the fourth. Juan Uribe and Tadahito Iguchi hit them for the Good Guys, while Brandon Inge got his for the Bad Guys. Such 2-1 Chicago lead was extremely short-lived as a semi-ugly inning was to come in the bottom of the 5th.

After Fake Pudge doubled to left and Gary Sheffield walked, Maggs Ordonez doubled in Fake Pudge to tie up the score. In what should have ended the inning, Uribe botched the next play on a tall, shallow fly, which allowed Carlos Guillen to get both Sheffield and Ordonez in, giving the Tigers a 4-2 lead at the end of 5 innings.

In efforts to continue on the right track, the beloved were able to have their first four batters reach safe, scoring a couple runs in the process. Paul Konerko's single to left center allowed both Darin Erstad and Iguchi, tying the score at four runs a side. They were unfortunately unable to score more in that frame, as Joe Crede's liner was caught, and Jim Thome was thrown out trying to score from third. The next inning would provide the Palehose with the last bit of offense they would need, as Erstad singled in Rob Mackowiak, who lead off with a single.

The Sox bullpen of Nick Masset, David Aardsma, Matt Thornton, Mike MacDougal, and Bobby Jenks each added a nail to Detroit's coffin, preserving the victory. And, so, our Sox have a nice little three-game winning streak going now. They don't have much time to rest, as another game is just 15 hours away. Jose Contreras takes the bump against Nate Robertson. Gametime is at high noon and can be seen on WGN.

Back to the Grind Update:
After Darin Erstad batted in the game-winning run, he was caught trying to steal second base. A couple innings prior, Jim Thome tried to score from third on a line-out by Joe Crede to deep second base, which failed.
