In It To Win It.

July 31 vs. Yankees


KW's Daily Special:
Eggs (on your face)
A special dish for all those people who thought Kenny Williams had fallen asleep in the kitchen. This dish is served best when cold.

Short Take:  The White Sox make history on July 31, as Kenny Williams pulls off the biggest trade of his nine-year tenure as Sox GM, while on the field the White Sox run the Yankees out of business. Let the good times roll!

Kenny Williams surprised the baseball world with 23 seconds left on the clock before the 3pm trade deadline today by sealing the deal, finally, on a Jake Peavy trade. Perhaps inspired with the knowledge that a former Cy Young pitcher will be joining their staff within a month, the White Sox went out tonight and walloped the New York Yankees by a score of 10-5 in a possible ALCS preview. With the victory, the Sox took a two-game advantage in this four-game weekend series. The Sox also moved into sole possession of 2nd place in the AL Central and only 1.5 games out of first place after a Tigers loss.

With Clayton Richard being shipped to San Diego in exchange for Peavy, the 5th starter duties, including tonight’s start, were assigned to DJ Carrasco. DJ got off to a rough start against the Bronx Bomber$, giving up three runs in the top of the first. The Sox quickly got one of the runs back in the bottom of the first when AJ doubled in Thome, but Yankee starter Sergio Mitre stopped the bleeding as the Sox stranded the bases loaded.

Never fear, the Go Go Sox came alive in the 2nd inning. After Jayson Nix walked, consecutive singles by Getz and Pods loaded the bases. With the sacks packed with Sox, Bacon drove in Nix with a sac fly to center to cut the Yankee lead to 3-2. Thome followed with a smash to right field to score Getz and Pods, giving the Good Guys a 4-3 lead. TCQ, swinging a hot bat tonight and hopefully returning to ‘08 MVP-like form, belted his 10th dinger of the season in the 3rd to put the Sox up 5-3.

Carrasco ran out of gas in the 4th, however, giving up a two-run homer to former Flub third-base prospect Eric Hinske, tying the game at 5-5. The Sox battled back again in the 5th to take the lead as PK walked, AJ singled (one of his four hits on the night), and TCQ doubled in Konerko. Although the Sox stranded AJ and Quentin at 2nd and 3rd with no outs, they took a 6-5 lead into the 6th inning.

In the bottom of the 7th, the Sox offense exploded with a flurry of action on the base paths. PK led off with a walk, followed by another single by AJ. With two outs, Nix walked to load the bases. With the pressure on, Chris Getz came through in the clutch by reaching out to poke a single into RF to score two runs. Ozzie then worked his magic. With Getz on 1st and Nix on 3rd, Ozzie called for a delayed double steal, which worked like magic, giving the Sox a 9-5 lead. Scotty Pods smashed a grounder past Teixeira at 1st to score the speedy Getz from 2nd and end the scoring assault at 10-5.

Meanwhile, the Sox bullpen pitched magnificently, as Tony Pena relieved Carrasco for two scoreless innings in the 5th and 6th, Dotel worked scoreless innings in the 7th and 8th, and Jake Peavy’s buddy Scotty Linebrink shut down the Yankees in the 9th. Credit Tony Pena with the win (6-3) and David Robertson with the loss (1-1).

Let’s sweep these guys! Tomorrow’s game is a 3:05pm start time on Fox. Go Sox!
