Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
1/2 pound burger
Can't serve up a full pound on the count of over eating!

Short Take:   Sox split today's day/night double header.

Today was perfect to describe the Sox season so far. Day and night. On the day side you have stellar pitching and timely hitting to get a win. On the night side you have a inept offense with decent pitching that should be able to win you games.

That was both the story today at The Cell as the Sox and Yankees locked up in a all day baseball showdown. John Danks took the mound in the afternoon, a makeup from last night's rain cancelled debacle, and won his second straight game. Danks showed no mercy in his 6 1/3 innings pitched as he fanned seven Yankee batters while yielding seven hits only giving up two runs in the process, one on a Bobby Abreu solo home run that tied the game 1-1 in the fifth.

The Sox took a 2-1 lead in their half of the fifth when Darin Erstad drove in Tadahito Iguchi who doubled earlier in the frame. While the Yankees were able to tie the game back up at two, the Sox came out swinging in the bottom of the sixth. A.J. Pierzynski hit a solo home run to lead off the sixth to give the Sox a 3-2 lead. Then, after Jermaine Dye doubled and Rob Mackowiak was hit by a pitch, Joe Crede singled scoring Dye to make it a 4-2 Sox lead. Tadahito Iguchi would add one more on a sac fly to give the Sox a 5-2 edge.

David Aardsma and Matt Thorton could close the game out to secure a 5-3 win for our Sox this afternoon giving Danks his second career win and the Sox back in the win column after two days of non-baseball.

But, of course, the bad Sox would come out at night. The rain fell as Sox fans entered the park for the regularally scheduled game where Jose Contreras and Chien-Ming Wang would duel it out after a 1hour and 15 minute rain delay. Both pitchers cruised until the third inning. Jose ran into some trouble with two outs and runners on first and second. Hideki Matsui doubled over the head of a dumbfound looking Darin Erstad to score the two runs making it a 2-0 Yankee lead.

The Sox would tally one run in this game and it came in the sixth. Darin Erstad and Pablo Ozuna reached base to start the inning off, but Jermaine Dye and Paul Konerko continued to look sad at the plate. They both chalked up non-productive outs, leaving Rob Mackowiak to drive in a run. Mackowiak slapped a line drive to center scoring Erstad, but Pablo Ozuna thought he was much faster than he acually is getting gunned down before he even reached third base.

From there on it was all Yankees. They put up two more runs in the seventh, and then slapped around ninth inning mop-up man Andrew Sisco for four, count 'em, four runs making it a 8-1 Yankee lead. That, is how this long day of baseball would end on the South Side.

To sweep a day/night double header is hard to do, so a split is all you can ask for and that's what the Sox delievered. The Sox (19-17) will face off in a mere 13 hours from the end of game two to wrap up this series against the Yankees. Jon Garland will try to get the Sox their 20th win on the season. Gametime is 1:05pm and will be televised on Comcast Sports Net.
