WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

A series win! Hooray!

May 5 vs. Kansas City


Immunity:
Andruw Jones
Exiled:
Gordon Beckham

Jones got the Sox off on the right foot with a homer in the first inning. We didn't have too many guys play poorly tonight, but our young second baseman continues to struggle at the plate.

Short Take:The Sox offense puts a thumping on the Royals, and Freddy Garcia picks up his first win of the season.

It sure is nice to see some runs put on the board for a change, isn't it Sox fans? The South Siders produced their second highest run output of the season Wednesday night in a lopsided 9-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals at U.S. Cellular Field.

It was also nice of the Royals to start pitcher Brian Bannister (1-2) in this game. Bannister entered the night with a lifetime 8.22 ERA in 13 career starts against the White Sox. That trend continued as the Sox tagged the mediocre right-hander for seven runs over three-plus innings. Andruw Jones hit a two-run homer to highlight a four-run first inning. Carlos Quentin and Mark Teahen added RBI singles in the rally.

Paul Konerko's two-out RBI double in the second inning made it 5-0. The Sox increased their edge to 7-0 in the fourth. Jones worked a bases-loaded walk, and Alex Rios added a sacrifice fly. Rios capped a 2-for-3 performance with a two-run homer off Kansas City reliever Brad Thompson in the sixth, giving the Sox their final margin of victory.

At long last, Sox right-hander Freddy Garcia (1-2) solved the Royals. The veteran had not beaten Kansas City since July 25, 2005, going 0-7 with a 7.40 ERA over that span. His performance Wednesday was not exactly pretty. He allowed 10 hits over six innings. But anytime your No. 5 starter allows only two runs, you'll take it.

The victory gives the White Sox (12-16) just their second series win of the season. They'll look to build upon that Thursday as they open a four-game set with the Toronto Blue Jays. Lefty John Danks (3-0, 1.85 ERA) is scheduled to pitch for the Sox. Lefty Dana Eveland (2-1, 4.76 ERA) is the probable starter for Toronto. The game will begin at 7:10 p.m. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

TBGR Diary:
I'm glad to see Garcia get his first victory of the season. He's pitched well enough this year to have three or four wins already.
