Celebrate Mark Buehrle Day

July 23 at Oakland


Immunity:
Vizquel
Exiled:
Paulie

Omar continues to play well (two more hits), while Paulie was hitless on the night.

Short Take:  On the one year anniversary of his Perfect Game, Mark Buehrle shines once again with a four-hit complete game 5-1 victory against the Oakland A’s.

July 23 was the high-point of the 2009 season. On that day, Mark Buehrle pitched the 18th Perfect Game in baseball history. The Tampa Bay Rays could not touch him that afternoon. It was a day for the ages. Unfortunately, the baseball gods chose that magical day as the last day the White Sox would spend in first place during the 2009 championship season.

2010 is nearly two-thirds complete, and the Sox find themselves with a slightly larger cushion this year, leading the AL Central by 2.5 games. As fate would have it, Mark Buehrle received the ball once again on July 23, this time on the road against the black-clad Oakland Athletics. Perhaps the Raiders would have been a more formidable foe at the Coliseum. Buehrle once again had the magic touch, going the distance for the Sox in a complete game, four-hit masterpiece. His work only took two hours and sixteen minutes, and the final outcome was only delayed by the Sox tacking on some insurance runs in the 9th. It was also Buehrle’s first ever victory in the “House of Horrors”, formerly known as the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum.

Buehrle worked quickly, retiring the A’s in order in six of the nine innings. He allowed no walks. Jack Cust doubled off Buehrle in the 2nd. Coco Crisp singled in the 3rd. Kevin Kouzmanoff and Cust hit back-to-back doubles in the bottom of the 7th to give the A’s their sole run of the evening. That accounted for the Oakland offensive production. Four hits, one run, and Buehrle was in complete control.

The White Sox offense manufactured a run in the top of the 4th off Trevor Cahill to take an early lead. Alex Rios reached base on a double, went to third on a Paulie groundout to the right-side, and scored on a Carlos Quentin sacrifice fly. The Sox tacked on two more runs in the 6th as Juan Pierre scored on an error, and later Omar Vizquel crossed the plate on a groundout to give TCQ another RBI on the night. AJ Pierzynski knocked a 2-run single in the top of the 9th off A’s reliever Henry Rodriguez to finish the scoring.

TBGR Diary:
 Credit Buehrle with the victory (9-8) and Cahill with the loss (9-4). The Sox maintain their 2.5 game lead in the AL Central over the Tigers and hope to win the series in Oakland before beginning a new homestand next week.
