Dank You Very Much, Oakland!

April 15th vs. Oakland Athletics

"These ain't your daddy's White Sox... We're going to keep going after a championship as aggressively as we can."

KW's Hole Cards:
Three of a kind
Quentin, Crede, and Danks were three of a kind combining to form the winning hand today.

Short Take:Birthday boy John Danks pitches one of his best outings ever, and Joe Crede flashes the leather, as our Sox Soxessfully went for the kill this afternoon at Sox Park.

In honor of his 23rd birthday, John Danks decided to give all Sox fans a gift of his own by pitching as beautiful of a game as the weather was outside. Sox fans didn't even need jackets for this one, and the team that they were cheering for warmed them up even more on a couple of key hits and a couple of nice flashes of leather to defeat the Oakland Unathletics 4-1.

A lot of credit must be given to Danks, as well as the defense of Joe Crede here in disallowing Oakland much of any fortunes around the bases this afternoon. Danks gave our bullpen a rest, as he delivered for 7.2 innings with 4 K's and 7 total base runners allowed, none of which could score due to both the nasty pitching of Danks, as well as a couple of highlight-reel diving plays by Crede, which would've led to a couple of extra base hits and runs. This is definitely one of the stronger Sox teams defensively in a while.

The Sox bats came to life in the middle of the game. After Paul Konerko was hit by a pitch and Crede walked, Carlos Quentin hit a monster shot halfway up the stands in left field. Every Sox fan in attendance knew that one was out right when it left his bat. Crede delivered insurance by knocking in Jermaine Dye in the next frame, which gave the Sox a wonderful 4-0 lead that lasted until the 9th inning.

Scott Linebrink allowed the first couple of guys on base in the 9th. Cue POD's "Boom!" Jenks made quick work of the Unathletics in just a few pitches, only allowing one inherited base runner to score. It's called resilency! After the Sox have a less-than-desireable outing like last night's game (which have been few this season anyways), they follow it with a strong performance. These Sox truly represent their fanbase well with their knack of outmuscling their opponents. Let's now go to Baltimore and take a couple of games at Camden Yards. Jose Contreras has the mound for the Good Guys, which can be seen on WCIU at 6:05 tomorrow night. Go get those pesky birds, boys!

Oh, and, Happy Birthday, John Danks!

WSI's
Quest For the Final Table Update:
The Sox had all of the chips on their side of the table today thanks to Carlos Quentin's 3-run bomb, Joe Crede's defense, and John Danks' fantastic pitching performance.
