Circle this, Bert!

Aug. 11 vs. Minnesota


Immunity:
Carlos Quentin
Exiled:
A.J. Pierzynski

Big hit by Quentin to put the Sox ahead early. The starting catcher, however, continues to make weak outs.

Short Take: The Twins are crappy. They are perpetual losers.

How's this for a welcome change of pace? The White Sox played a fundamentally sound game and pounded lumps on the hated Minnesota Twins Wednesday night, coming away with an easy 6-1 victory.

With the win, the Sox move back into a first-place tie in the American League Central Division standings and snap a four-game losing streak against a vastly overrated Minnesota team.

Sox lefty John Danks (12-8) fired eight innings of one-run ball. His teammates played flawless defense, and Sox hitters capitalized on a shoddy performance by the Minnesota infield.

The very first play of the game set a positive tone for the Sox. Minnesota's annoying leadoff hitter, Denard Span, laced a double into the gap in right center. After Tuesday night's 12-6 debacle, some Sox fans might have been thinking, "Here we go again," when that ball landed. Well, fortunately it didn't work out that way.

Span foolishly tried to stretch the hit into a triple, and the Sox gunned his sorry ass down with a well-executed relay. Alex Rios to Gordon Beckham to Omar Vizquel. Take a seat, Denard. You just made the first out of an inning at third base, you freakin' idiot.

No wonder the Twins are crappy. They are perpetual losers.

After that great defensive play to open the game, it was all Sox. Carlos Quentin ripped a two-run homer to dead center off Twinkee loser Glen Perkins (0-1) in the second to put the good guys up 2-0.

In the third inning, Minnesota botched what should have been an inning-ending double play, and the Sox took advantage when Rios delivered a two-out single that scored Alexei Ramirez, who had reached on the error. 3-0 Sox.

The Twins really imploded in the fifth. The Sox were given five outs and cashed in with three runs. Juan Pierre's single scored Vizquel, who had doubled, to make it 4-0. With Ramirez hitting, Perkins appeared to have Pierre picked off. However, Minnesota first baseman Michael Cuddyer made a lousy throw to second base and Pierre slid in under the tag.

Pierre would have been out with a good throw, but he ended up scoring when Ramirez doubled off the left-field wall. 5-0 Sox. Minnesota's charity did not stop there. The Twinkees' crappy shortstop, J.J. Hardy, turfed a throw to first base on Paul Konerko's routine ground ball. Two-base error, Ramirez scores, 6-0 Sox.

Did I mention the Twins are crappy? They are perpetual losers.

Handed a big lead, Danks took care of the rest. Cuddyer got a lucky-ass bloop hit to score a run for Minnesota in the sixth, but that was the only thing that prevented a shutout.

The Sox will go for the series win tomorrow with Gavin Floyd (8-8, 3.49 ERA) on the mound. The perpetual losers will counter with lefty Francisco Liriano (10-7, 3.33 ERA). The game starts at 7:10. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

TBGR Diary:
Good pitching is the difference. Garcia sucked eggs in the opener Tuesday. Danks was brilliant Wednesday. It's up to Floyd on Thursday.
