The Sox Are Rolling

July 9 vs. KC


Immunity:
Beckham
Exiled:
Marquez

Beckham doubled and scored, while Marquez blew the shutout.

Short Take:  The Good Guys win their 23rd game in the last 28 contests. Nobody can stop this runaway train!

Friday night saw the White Sox continue to dominate their opponents with the same recipe for success they’ve used over the past month: phenomenal starting pitching, solid defense, and clutch hitting. With an 8-run attack against Kansas City pitching and a solid seven innings from starter Mark Buehrle, the game was never in doubt. The Sox 8-2 clobbering of the Royals was Chicago’s 6th in a row (another streak!) and helps keep pace with Detroit (winners against the Twinkees), as the Sox remain 0.5 games out of the AL Central lead.

The Sox got off to a great start against journeyman pitcher Bruce Chen, as Andruw Jones’ 2nd inning line-drive single to left scored both Paulie and TCQ to give the Sox a quick 2-0 lead. Chen’s night was officially over in the top of the 4th after AJ Pierzynski roped a homer into the right-field patio area. The Sox tacked another run on in the 5th when Gordon Beckham lead off the inning with a double and eventually scored on a fielder’s choice.

With a five run lead, though, the Sox weren’t quite done. Alex Rios walked to begin the 8th and hustled home on a Konerko double to centerfield. After a walk to Quentin, the stage was set for AJ once again. This time, KC reliever Victor Marte was the victim. AJ launched a mammoth homer into the right field bleachers for his 2nd dinger of the night, ending the Sox scoring with an 8-0 lead.

Rookie Jeff Marquez, acquired in the Swisher giveaway deal to the Yankees, came in for mop-up duty in the 9th. Marquez’ breaking balls weren’t breaking, and he surrendered a 2-run homer to Yuniesky Betancourt before shutting the door once and for all. Buehrle earns the victory for his seven innings of six-hit ball, running his record to 8-7 on the season, while Bruce Chen gets the loss (5-3). Buehrle's performance looks even better when you consider he was nailed on the wrist with a hard-hit ball in the first inning and came back to pitch to the 8th. He received a well-deserved standing ovation after coming out in the 8th for Sergio Santos.

The victory over Kansas City comes as the Sox 23rd win in the last 28 games. Over that span, since June 9, the Pale Hose have made up an incredible, mind-blowing 12.0 games on the Minnesota Twins in the standings. Now, perched only 0.5 behind Detroit and 2.5 in front of the Twins, the Sox look to cap this amazing run and take the AL Central lead before the All-Star Break. If the Sox can win either Saturday or Sunday, they will secure their 9th series victory in the last ten, dating back to their two victories over the Tigers on June 9th and 10th. Since winning that Detroit series (2-1), the Sox have plowed over: the Cubs (2-1), Pittsburgh (3-0), the Nasty Nats (3-0), Atlanta (3-0), the Cubs (2-1), (a series loss against KC 1-2), Texas (2-1), and the Angels (4-0). It’s definitely the most remarkable turnaround in Major League Baseball this season. It could go down as one of the most epic turnarounds in major league history.
