We Swept Their Butts in San Francisco

May 18th at San Francisco Giants

"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:
Full house! Who didn't contribute to this one? Well, all right; Dotel, but let's cut him some slack after yesterday.


Short Take:Sweeping on the Dock of the Bay, watching the Tribe, Twins, and Tigers roll away….EVERYBODY JOIN IN AND SING!!!

This was kind of a weird game; the pitchers’ duel that wasn’t. Although neither starting pitcher figured in the decision, they both pitched deep into the game. But the Good Guys prevailed, and if you had them in the thirteen-run pool, then you are doubly blessed. Final Score: Sox 13, (They Might Not Be) Giants 8.

So, here’s the recap. Top of first--three up, three down. Bottom of first--four up, three down. Top of second--three up, three down. Bottom of second--would’ve been four up, three down were it not for the homer by Rich Aurilia. After two: Bad Guys 1, Sox 0. Stayed that way until top five, when JOE CREDE homered to tie it up. Unfortunately, the Giants got the run back in the bottom of the frame. After five: Bad Guys 2, Sox 1.

Ahhh, but wait! In the top of the sixth, Orlando Cabrera led off with a homer. AJ followed with a single, then THE Carlos Quentin homered. When the smoke cleared, our Sox led 4-3. We extended our lead to 6-3 in the top of the seventh, but these Gnats, er, Giants, just would not go away, putting together three runs and knotting it up again. After seven, all even at 6.

Top of eight. We finally got rid of their starting pitcher. With one out, Paulie, Crede, and Alexei Ramirez each singled. Brian Anderson struck out and Nick Swisher, batting for Matt Thornton, doubled in three runs. So the Sox led 9-6 and it all looked sweet. But remember the first paragraph? This was a weird game. Octavio Dotel came on to pitch the bottom of the frame and promptly walked the first three batters he faced. Nick Masset came on and despite some really horrible fielding, managed to minimize the damage. After eight, the Sox were clinging to a one-run lead.

But not to worry. In the ninth, Sox played some solid fundamental ball. AJ singled, TCQ singled, Dye singled, scoring AJ. PK fouled out, but then Crede hit a sac fly scoring Quentin, Alexei Ramirez doubled sending JD to third, then Brian Anderson hit a two-run single. Nick Masset stayed in and got three up, three down. And that was the old ballgame, folks!

This Win Was Huge, at least as far as wins in May go. Tribe lost, Twins lost, Tigers lost (way to go, D'Backs!)--and our guys won! That gives us a 1.5 game lead over those pests from Cleveland as the Tribe looks forward to a three-game set in Chicago, starting Tuesday. The opener sets C.C. Sabathia against Jose Contreras. Game time: 7:11 central. Let’s go get ‘em!!!
