With 11 in a Row, Our Cup Runneth Over

June 26th against the Pathetic Blueshirts


Immunity:
Gordon Beckham
Exiled:
Mark Kotsay

Beckham is back! An aggressive triple and the first run scored, hitting like he means it. But Kotsay...you're the DH, man. That means you're supposed to hit.

Short Take:Well played, as the White Sox win their 11th in a row, 3-2, against the team formerly known as cute.

In astrology and numerology the number 11 is said to be a Master Number. Who am I to argue? Tonight the White Sox won their 11th in a row, beating the feckless Chicago Ursine Creatures 3-2.

And "masterful" is a good way to describe it. Though the score was close, it was clear that the Sox were in the drivers seat behind the solid pitching of Freddy Garcia. Though not earning a decision tonight, his seven innings of work kept the North Side Carnival Barkers on their heels. The exception to this was a solo home run by Aramis Ramirez in the seventh, but hey, everyone makes mistakes.

Opposing Garcia tonight was Carlos Silva, one of the few bright spots in that sorry roster. He looked good tonight, but Garcia looked better.

The Sox scored first in the third inning, when the reawakened Gordon Beckham hit a leadoff triple to right-center. Two outs later Alex Rios hit a tidy single up the middle that allowed Beckham to trot on home. The Sox have gotten really, really good at getting two-out RBIs, and that's a good thing. So it's 1-0 Sox at the end of three.

The Addison Street Social Club scored in the top of the sixth after Ryan Theriot hit a leadoff single, advanced to second on a groundout, and then to third when Marlon Byrd got an infield hit. Derrek Lee, another of the few bright spots for that bunch, got an RBI single. Now it's tied 1-1 in the middle of the sixth.

The Sox came back in the bottom of the sixth when Paul Konerko drew a leadoff walk off Silva. (The) Carlos Quentin went to first after he was hit by a pitch for the 5,483rd time this month (or so it seems), sending Konerko to second. Mark Kotsay hit a fly to center -- Konerko tagged up and employed the blazing speed for which he's famous to get to third. Alexei Ramirez then flew out to right, allowing Paul "Wheels" Konerko to sprint home on the sac fly. It's now 2-1 Sox after six.

Alas, in the seventh, Aramis Ramirez hit the aforementioned solo homer, tying the game yet again. But this is White Sox 2.0 we're talking about, and they know how to come back. After J.J. Putz took care of the Clark Street Interlopers in the top of the eighth, Paul Konerko did what he does best in the bottom of the eighth, launching a 1-2 fastball from reliever Andrew Cashner deep into the left-field seats to put the Sox out in front 3-2.

And there it would stay as Matt Thornton came in to pitch the ninth. Though he gave up a one-out walk to Aramis Ramirez, he earned the save after Alfonso Soriano hit into a game-ending double play. Putz got the win, having the good fortune to pitch in Konerko's heroic inning, which sealed the deal for the Sox to win the coveted and legendary Crosstown Cup of Little Significance.

11 is a good number in a craps game. 11 was un-retired by the White Sox so Omar Vizquel could wear it. 11 is also the number of games the Chicago White Sox have won in a row, and as far as I'm concerned that's what I call a Master Number.
