Three out of Four Ain't Bad

April 19 vs Tampa Bay Rays

Short Take: Hate to Have to Pick Who Clicked!

As is often the case, this game started uneventfully. But when the cowbells (finally!) fell silent, it was the Sox 12, Rays 2.

Sox went down in order in the first. The Rays had a mini-threat going in the bottom of the frame when that pest B.J. Upton singled. He would have stolen second if Crawford hadnít screwed up and sacrificed him, but then he went ahead and stole third. However, Gavin Floyd struck out the next two guys--Longoria and Pena--so that was that. Top of two, Big Jim Thome led off with a walk, then with two outs, AJ Pierzynski (perhaps incensed by the booing of the crowd, but probably not since he gets booed pretty much everywhere) homered, giving the Sox a 2-0 lead. Wilson Betemit struck out to end the Soxís half of the inning. But Gavin was on; in fact, if you took a bathroom break in the bottom of the second, you probably missed the bottom of the second. End of two, Sox up by two. The Sox added another run in the third and a single by Akinori Iwamura (Hawk loves to say his full name for some reason) to lead off went for naught. End of three: Sox 3, Rays 0.

Stayed that way until the top of the sixth, when the Sox went nuts. Thome, Jermaine Dye, Paulie Konerko, AJ , Brian Anderson, Chris Getz, and Brent Lillibridge combined to score four more. At the conclusion of this inning, the Rays starting pitcher, Matt Garza--aka Zambozo lite--was seen on camera stomping around in the dugout. However, it appeared that no drink coolers were smashed to smithereens, so Garza might want to work on his dugout routine. End of six, the Good Guys led 7-0.

The Sox extended the lead to 9-0 in the top of the seventh, but Pena reached to lead off the bottom of the frame, then Ben Zobrist (remember him? You should; heís the reason this wasnít a sweep.) homered to make it 9-2 after seven.

And thatís as close as it got, folks. In the top of the eighth, Carlos Quentin, who had been relatively quiet all day, homered with a man on. Jim Thome followed with a solo shot to make it 12-2. In the bottom of nine, Zobrist doubled with two out, but then Greg Gross flied out (Would that be considered a Gross out? Sorry!) and the game was OVAH!

So our guys took three of four and will move on to Baltimore for a series starting Tuesday. Weíll be starting Jose Contreras against the always-tough TBA. Game time 6:05 Central.

Critic's Corner:
Not much to complain about here. Very nice game--and series!
