Take that (Devil) Rays!

July 22 vs. Tampa Bay Rays


KW's Daily Special:
Revenge
It's a dish served cold...

Short Take:Alexei Ramirez and Jermaine Dye deliver in the clutch as the Sox complete a comeback of their own.

After allowing a ninth-inning lead to slip away last night, the White Sox earned a measure of revenge Wednesday. The South Siders used a three-run seventh inning to complete a comeback from a 3-0 deficit and beat the defending American League champion Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays 4-3 at U.S. Cellular Field.

Scott Podsednik got the rally started in the bottom of the sixth when he led off the inning with a home run off Tampa Bay starter James Shields. But the seventh inning proved to be the turning point, as the Sox did all their damage after two were out.

Gordon Beckham worked a walk to chase Shields from the mound. Podsednik reached on an infield single against Tampa Bay reliever Randy Choate, and a throwing error by Tampa Bay shortstop Jason Bartlett placed runners on second and third.

At that point, Rays manager Joe Maddon summoned former Sox reliever Chad Bradford from the bullpen. In a bizarre turn of events, Bradford injured himself while taking his warmup tosses. That gave Alexei Ramirez an opportunity to hit against notorious Sox punching bag Dan Wheeler (3-3).

On a 3-2 pitch, Ramirez delivered a two-run triple to tie the game at 3-3. Tampa Bay center fielder B.J. Upton did his best Rob Mackowiak imitation on the play, taking a couple steps in as the ball sailed over his head for extra bases. Jermaine Dye finished that worthless bum Wheeler off with an RBI single. Ramirez scored and the Sox led 4-3.

Matt Thornton pitched two innings of scoreless ball to hold the lead, earning his first save of the season. D.J. Carrasco (3-0) worked a scoreless seventh to earn the victory.

Sox starter Carlos Torres made his major-league debut and turned in a strong effort. The rookie tossed six innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out three and walked three in picking up a quality start.

The Sox have now taken two of the first three in this four-game set. Mark Buehrle (10-3, 3.52 ERA) will try to pitch the South Siders to a series win at 1 p.m. Thursday. Left-hander Scott Kazmir (4-5, 6.62 ERA) is slated to pitch for Tampa Bay.

Critic's Corner:
Five stars: A good win over a good team tonight gets the Sox within one game of the AL Central lead.
