The House That Gavin Built

September 16 @ New York Yankees

"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:
Speed Limit
Pretty much all the Sox have to go to win this division now, the way the Twins have been playing.

Short Take:Gavin Floyd once again dominated his foes, while the Palehose's offense clicked in place at the right times, as our guys took care of business in New York tonight.

During a baseball season, there are games where fans just know from the get-go that things will not go their way; there are also games where fans have no doubt that their team will win, feeling ever-so-confident. The latter is true for the most part in games in which Gavin Floyd tows the rubber. Floyd has ways of calming Sox fans who have been sitting on the ledge in such a tight divisional race, and that trait held true again tonight, as the Yankees weren't able to do much against his dominating stuff. Our Sox tripled up the Bronx Bombers 6-2.

The Cuban Missile homered for our Sox, while Johnny Damon doubled in Brett Gardner for the Yankees in the third frame before our Sox broke free with enough runs to give Floyd and the entire White Sox Army a comfort zone in the fourth. The first four Sox batters reached base. After my boy BA induced the "dreaded" lead-off walk, Jermaine "never say" Dye singled him over. Future HOFer Ken Griffey Jr. got in BA on a single to center field, while Paul Konerko (returning from a brief resting period) laced a double to left field, scoring Dye. After Andy Pettit intentionally walked The Cuban Missile, Juan Uribe did something that is uncharacter of himself. He WALKED in the fourth run of the ballgame, giving our Sox a nice 4-1 lead with 3.5 innings in the books.

Steroid Boy Giambi launched a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the 4th; but, that would be all that Gavin and the tight Sox pitching staff would give up for the rest of this one. Steroid Boy won a small battle there; but, he ultimately lost the war, as Floyd K'd him with the bases loaded and two out the very next inning! Our Palehose added single insurance runs in the 7th (on back-to-back doubles by O-C and BA) and in the 8th (AJ and Uribe trading places off doubles). Matt Thornton and Bobby Jenks pitched effectively in relief.

For those of you who haven't kept your eyes on the scoreboard, the Cleveland Indians helped us out for the second night in a row, as they defeated the Minnesota Twins on a walk-off 3-run bomb by Victor Martinez in the 11th, which gives us a nice 2.5 game lead in the division with less than 2 weeks to go in this season. Joe Nathan was the losing pitcher, and his confidence has to be at an all-time low at this point. Oh, that one's gotta hurt, you cream puff snacks! Our Sox now are completely in the driver's seat. Let's not take our foot off the gas pedal! It's time to accelerate to the finish line before the Twinkies wake up! Tomorrow night could be the night where our magic number falls into the single digits! Be sure to check the game out. Same time, same place, different channel (CSN).

Quest For the Final Table Update:
We win, Twins lose! A 2.5 game lead seems much more appealing when we're the ones on top!

Juan Uribe

When Uribe takes the bat off his shoulders and walks, especially with the bases juiced, you know it's your night!
