The Cavalry Arrives in Texas

May 1 vs. Texas

Only the best for the AL Central leading Sox

Short Take:   Thome, Getz and Scotty Pods make their heroic return to beat the Rangers, 4-3!

The Sox finally notched their first Friday evening victory this year, and they did it with two-out flare. Things started out roughly against the tough young Texas starter, but the Sox came back with power and speed while the pitching held the Rangers in check.

The Rangers got on the board early off Sox starter Mark Buehrle with an Ian Kinsler solo homer in the first. In the third, Kinsler brought home Elvis Andrus with a sacrifice fly, followed by a run scoring double by Andruw Jones. Those three runs would be all that Buehrle would give up for the rest of the night before exiting in the 7th.

The Sox looked awful against Texas starter Scott Feldman for the first five innings, only managing one base runner, a TCQ single in the 4th inning. The 6th inning brought better fortunes. With two outs, Chris Getz and Josh Fields reached base on soft hits before TCQ walked to load the bases. Ron Washington decided at that point to change pitchers, bringing in left-handed Derek Holland to face Big Jim Thome. That decision would haunt Washington, as Thome destroyed a Holland pitch the opposite way to leftfield for a three-run double to tie the game.

The Sox would take the lead for good in the 7th. Scott Podsednik, 2-for-4 on the night, ignited the rally by reaching first on an infield hit with two outs (classic 2005 Pods!). Pods moved to 2nd after a balk and then scored on Chris Getz’ first major league triple of his career, giving the Sox a 4-3 lead.

The Sox bullpen was in fine form, with Dotel, Linebrink and Jenks pitching lights-out ball in the 7th, 8th and 9th innings. Jenks earned his 6th save of the season and helped preserve Mark Buehrle’s fourth win of the year (4-0). It was a great come-from-behind victory and hopefully a good sign of things to come. Tomorrow night, Jose Contreras goes for his first victory of the season against ex-Sox starter Brandon McCarthy. Go Sox!
