7th Heaven

June 15 @ Pittsburgh Pirates


Immunity:
Freddy Garcia
Exiled:
Omar Vizquel

Freddy's looking good for a fifth starter. Meanwhile, Vizquel went 0-5 with 1 K.

Short Take:Freddy Garcia gets his team-leading 7th win in a 6-4 win in Pittsburgh.

This opponent looks familiar. Oh, yea, MLB seems to want to put the Palehose against the Pirates every year now. With the way this season's been going, perhaps that is a blessing in disguise. Remember all those years Sox fans lamented about the "fifth starter?" That certainly isn't a problem this year. Our fifth starter got his team-leading seventh victory tonight to the tune of a 6-4 victory at PNC Park.

Things looked a bit rocky early, as the Buckos got on the board in their first at bat. Neil Walker bunted on, and Andrew McCutchen singled him over for Garrett Jones, who doubled in both of them, giving the Pirates a quick 2-0 lead.

That would be the only lead of the day for Pittsburgh, as the Sox got pairs of runs in both the second and fourth. Mark Kotsay walked to start off the second, scored on an Alexei Ramirez double, who advanced to third and scored on two successive plays (a double by Ramon Castro and groundout by Gordon Beckham). Castro walked to start the fourth, scored on a double by Beckham, who scored on successive sacrifices by Garcia and Juan Pierre.

The 4-2 Sox lead lasted until the bottom of the fifth, where Pittsburgh tied it up. McCutchen got in the middle of things again, as he got a RBI and run (he singled in Walker and scored on a single by Ryan Doumit). Call him McClutchen, will ya!

That's all right, as the Sox put them away with runs in both the sixth and ninth innings. The first three batters reached base in the sixth (Ramirez reached on an infield single, Castro walked, then Beckham singled in Ramirez) to give the Sox the lead for good. It's always nice to get insurance before your closer comes in, so Alex Rios singled in Juan Pierre off of former Sox "great" Octavio Dotel, which closed the scoring.

The Sox hope to continue winning tomorrow night. John Danks takes on Zach Duke. Same time, same place, different channel (CSN).

TBGR Diary:
I think people should not complain about having the Pirates on the schedule every year. It does nothing but help our record.
