WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Welcome to First Place!

July 11 vs. Kansas City Royals


Immunity:
Andruw Jones
Exiled:
Daniel Hudson

Andruw Jones hit the long-awaited 400th homerun of his career and knocked in four, while Daniel Hudson lasted only four plus innings, giving up five earned runs on six hits.

Short Take:   The Sox continue to roll at an unprecedented clip, playing .833 baseball over the last month, and thumped the Royals 15-5 on Sunday, sweeping the series and the homestand!.

Sunday afternoon's contest was the 87th ballgame of the season for the White Sox, who just a month ago, were all but left for dead, sitting in third place in the American League Central. A span of unbelievable baseball has been played over the last 30 games and yesterday's contest was no exception. Carlos Quentin and the Sox delivered a shallacking of the Royals at U.S. Cellular Field, 15-5.

Daniel Hudson started for the Sox and he looked shaky at best. He never faced the minimum three batters in any of the four plus innings he pitched, and gave up runs early and often. Fortunately, the youngster was bailed out offensively by his teammates. With the game tied at 1-1 in the home half of the third, the Sox completely let loose on Andrew Lerew (1-3), who was starting in place of Zack Greinke, who was scratched shortly before the game. The Sox scored seven runs on seven hits in the third, courtesy of two back-to-back homer instances from Alex Rios & Carlos Quentin and Andruw Jones & Dayan Viciedo. Omar Vizquel, Mark Kotsay, and Gordon Beckham also added to the hit parade known as the third inning.

The score was now 8-1 in favor of the Sox, and it looked as though they had more than enough runs to win... until the next couple innings when Kansas City scored two runs in both the fourth and fifth innings. In the fourth, Jose Guillen hit a two-run shot, while, in the fifth, four consecutive hits are what plated two more, making it an 8-5 ballgame.

In the home half of the sixth, the Sox absolutely let loose again offensively, scoring five runs on three hits. The scoring in this inning was highlighted by Carlos Quentin's grand slam and sixth homerun of this seven game homestand, which blew the game wide open, 13-5! Quentin's five RBIs on the afternoon were the highest total for any member of the lineup, but Andruw Jones was just behind TCQ with four RBIs of his own. The Sox added two more runs in the seventh for good measure, making the final score 15-5.

We've now reached the All-Star Break and amazingly, the White Sox find themselves in sole possession of first place by a half game. Winners of 25 of their last 30 ballgames, the Sox hope that this annual mid-July break doesn't cool them off, as the second half will be a challenge. Prior to resuming the schedule later this week, Paul Konerko and Matt Thornton will be representing the Sox in the 81st All-Star Game out in SoCal tomorrow night. When the schedule resumes on Thursday, the Sox will be up in Minnesota to play the Twins at Target Field. They'll send John Danks (8-7, 3.29 ERA) to the mound against the Twins' Kevin Slowey (8-5, 4.64 ERA). The first pitch will be at 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net.

WSI's
TBGR Diary:
 If anyone would have told me, even a month ago, that the Sox would not only take sole possession of first place by the Break, but would be playing over .800 baseball, I would've said they were nuts. With that said, keep this craziness going in the second half, boys; make it one of the most memorable summers for Sox fans ever!
