Hudson, Sox Tame Tigers

September 27 vs. Detroit Tigers


KW's Daily Special:
Grilled Chicken
A very rare Sunday victory means a perfectly grilled, healthy meat is today's specialty.

Short Take:   Daniel Hudson secured his first Major League victory with six strong innings of two run, three hit ball.

After last night's rare Saturday loss, it seemed only right that Sunday would yield a rare victory. As luck would have it, that's how today played out! The White Sox plated eight runs on the afternoon and handed Edwin Jackson his eighth loss of the season. The White Sox took their season finale at U.S. Cellular Field, 8-4.

With the way this game started, it seemed as though the Sox would be on their way to yet another Sunday loss. Curtis Granderson drove the second pitch of the ballgame out of the ballpark, giving Detroit the very early 1-0 lead. Sox fans groaned at the prospect of yet another poor performance on the field. However, those groans quickly turned to cheers, as the Sox seized a scoring opportunity in the home half of the second.

After Jermaine Dye popped out to first, Mark Kotsay walked. Alexei Ramirez followed with a fielder's choice to third and Mark Kotsay was out at second. With the Stick at first, Carlos Quentin doubled to deep right center and Ramirez scored the tying run.

The Tigers briefly took the lead in the top of the sixth. Daniel Hudson walked Placido Polanco to lead off the inning and he went to second when Miguel Cabrera was walked with one out. Aubrey Huff also walked, loading the bases for Carlos Guillen, whose sacrifice fly to center scored Polanco with the go-ahead run. Detriot led 2-1, albeit very briefly, as the Sox came right back in the home half of the inning.

The struggling Alex Rios led off the inning with a double to left, and Scott Podsednik followed with a triple to deep center, bringing Rios around very easily with the tying run. With Pods at third, Gordon Beckham doubled to left and Scotty Pods came home with the go-ahead run and the Sox led 3-2. It was a lead they'd never relinquish, as they scored one more in the sixth. After A.J. Pierzynski struck out swinging, Jermaine Dye singled to center, scoring Beckham and the Sox led 4-2.

The score remained 4-2 until the bottom of the eighth when the Sox added four more to their lead. Gordon Beckham led off with a single, chasing Edwin Jackson from the game. He was replaced by Fu-Te Ni, who got Pierzynski to foul out to third. After retiring the one batter Ni was brought in to face, Leland went to Fernando Rodney for the rest of the inning. He was ineffective, as the Sox went to work on him. Jermaine Dye grounded out to short, moving Beckham to second, and with two out, Mark Kotsay singled to left, scoring Beckham and the Sox led 5-2. After Alexei Ramirez reached base on an infield single, it was TCQ time. Quentin came to the plate and hit his 19th homerun of the season, giving the Sox a commanding 8-2 lead.

With Bobby Jenks on the shelf for the remainder of the season, Ozzie Guillen went to Matt Thornton to close out this afternoon's contest. He got himself into a jam, but it was nothing he couldn't handle. Carlos Guillen led off the ninth with a double to deep left, then Brandon Inge went down on strikes for the first out. Gerald Laird lined out to first, but then Ramon Santiago singled to center, scoring Guillen with the third Tiger run. Ryan Raburn hit for Curtis Granderson, and in the meantime, Santiago went to second on a fielder's indifference. Raburn singled to left, scoring Santiago with the fourth run on the afternoon for Detroit. Matt Thronton resumed his dominance on the mound, getting Placido Polanco to ground out to Beckham to win the game for the Sox, as they send their fans hope happy on what was the final game at U.S. Cellular Field in 2009.

After today's home finale, the Sox head to Cleveland for a three game series. John Danks (12-10, 3.82) will take the mound for the Sox at Progressive Field in Cleveland, while the Indians will counter with Aaron Laffey (7-7, 3.93) to the mound. The first pitch will be thrown at 6:05p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WCIU.

Critic's Corner:
 One star for the one run they scored off the "mighty" Robinson Tejada.
