A Sweeping of Seattle

April 25 vs. Seattle Mariners


Immunity:
John Danks
Exiled:
Bobby Jenks

He nearly blew another save again in the ninth after retiring the first two Seattle batters without incident.

Short Take:   John Danks went eight strong innings, keeping his team in the game all afternoon. Some late-inning offense solidified the victory for Danks & Co.

After exciting back-to-back walk-off wins via the homerun for the first time since 1967, it seemed nearly impossible for the Sox to win another ballgame late. Wonders never cease because for the third consecutive day, it happened. Paul Konerko broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the eighth with his eighth homerun of the season, sending an announced crowd of 28,000+ home happy.

The Sox were the first to dent the dish and it happened in the bottom of the first inning. Juan Pierre was hit by a pitch and went to second on Gordon Beckham's single. Pierre stole third, and after Andruw Jones struck out, scored on Adam Moore's passed ball. It wasn't the most conventional way to score a run, but a run is a run!

The score remained 1-0 Sox until the top of the fourth when, with one out, Franklin Gutierrez hit a solo shot that landed in the Sox's bullpen. An inning later, the Mariners took a one-run lead, courtesy of a lead-off triple by Casey Kotchman, who later came in to score on Adam Moore's base hit to right.

It remained a 2-1 ballgame, but in the bottm of the sixth, the Sox managed to sort of manufacture a run. Andruw Jones led off with a single and Konerko followed that up with a ground rule double, advancing Jones to third. A.J. Pierzynski, who's struggling mightily, popped out to first, forcing the runners to hold. Carlos Quentin's ground out to short brought Jones in with the tying run.

As the game continued, it looked as though extra innings might be in order on what was a very damp, chilly afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field, but the Sox had other ideas. John Danks found himself in trouble in the top of the eighth, allowing back-to-back singles to Ichiro Suzuki and Chone Figgings, but got Franklin Gutierrez to fly out to center, ending the threat. After Andruw Jones flew out to left to begin the home half, Paul Konerko picked him up with a solo homerun, putting the Sox in the lead for good! Sox win, 3-2!

This afternoon's victory marked the Sox's first series sweep of the young season, and has improved their record to 8-11. Tomorrow is an off day for the team, and the next time we'll see them will be Tuesday night in Arlington, Texas. Mark Buehrle (2-2, 4.56 ERA) will go head-to-head against the Rangers' C.J. Wilson (1-1, 1.37 ERA). The first pitch will be at 7:05p CDT and the game will be broadcast on CSN+.

TBGR Diary:
 With some help from the offense, good starting pitching will almost always lead you to victory!
