Tough-Guy Verlander Defeats the Sox

April 22 at Detroit


Levels Finished:

The Sox dodged barrels all the way up the first ladder and then fell right on their faces.

Short Take:   Verlander Stares Down AJ Pierzynski, Herm Schneider, two bat boys, and a Sox Equipment Manager. Too bad he wasn’t that focused in the 2006 World Series.

In round one of their weekend series, the Tigers were victorious against the White Sox tonight by a score of 9-3. The collective Sox offensive funk continued, with only Carlos Quentin and Paul Konerko showing any sort of fire. Quentin, the newly-appointed three-hitter (until the rest of the offense comes back to life, at which time Quentin will go into one of his mandatory month-long slumps and be dropped to 7th in the order), hit two monster homeruns, while Konerko added a solo shot of his own that clanked off the leftfield foul pole. Quentin is now tied for the lead in the American League for homers with six. Adam Dunn went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts to drop his average to .163. Gordon Beckham, in the 8-hole, put up an 0-for-3 night to drop his average to .213. Brent Morel, Omar Vizquel, “Turf-Toe” Alex Rios, Dunn and Beckham went a combined 0-for-18 on the night.

On the other side, the Tigers owned Mark Buehrle tonight at Comerica. With the rain coming down steadily throughout the game, Ryan Raburn and a bunch of other no-name Tigers put up nine runs with very little effort. The scoring began in the 2nd when Johnny Peralta tripled home a run and then scored on a sacrifice fly. In the 3rd, Ryan Raburn launched a two-run shot to give Detroit a 4-0 lead. Brendan Boesch scored on an Alexa Avila ground-rule double in the 4th. In the 6th, Avila scored on a base hit by Casper Wells. Who are these guys? The Tigers scored three more garbage-time runs in the 8th off embattled Sox reliever Tony Pena.

The real story tonight, though, was tough guy Justin Verlander staring down the Sox dugout like he was Mr. T. One memory for you Justin: October 21, 2006 when you struggled through five innings and gave up seven runs against an 83-win St. Louis Cardinal team led by Chris Duncan and Juan Encarnacion. Enjoy your AL Championship ring. AJ’s got a World Series ring.
