Paulie Perfection

May 8 at Seattle


Levels Finished:

Buehrle and Santos threw fireballs while the Sox offense jumped barrels at the end to pull it out.

Short Take:   The Captain went 5-5 as the Sox won the game and the weekend series in extras 5-2.

On Saturday, Gavin Floyd threw eight innings of shutout ball that made the Seattle Mariner hitters look more like Seattle Sutton (the dietician expert) was up at the plate. On this Mother's Day, Mark Buehrle was looking to follow that performance with a gem of his own. Buehrle did his job and for the second game in a row, the offense did as well. No, the offense didn't pound out 17 hits like Saturday, but Paul Konerko went 5-5 as he and the rest Sox offense pulled out the victory in extra innings 5-2.

Mark Buehrle went eight strong innings in holding the Mariners to two earned runs, nine hits, and three strikeouts. Often injured Erik Bedard countered for the Mariners. Though he came in 1-4 with a 5+ ERA, he kept the Mariners in the game giving up two runs (one earned) on five hits, two walks, and nine strikeouts in five innings. However, story of the day was our Captain. With his perfect day, it helped the Sox win their second game in a row. Right now, it's hard to be optimistic, but these last two games are a good start.

The Sox got the scoring started in the top of the fourth. Konerko opened with a double and Alex Rios reached on an infield single. Konerko would score on a Ramon Castro single while Rios would also score on the play when Miguel Olivo could not handle Milton Bradley's throw. That would put the Sox up 2-0.

The Mariners runs came in the bottom of the fifth. With the two Jacks, Cust and Wilson, on base, Brendan Ryan singled in Cust to make it 1-0. The Mariners would tie the game at 2 on an Ichiro sacrifice fly.

After Santos pitched a scoreless ninth, the game would move to extras. The Sox would take over. Brent Morel got it started with a single. With one out, Alexei "Bag-a-Bones" Ramirez and Adam Dunn would each hit run scoring doubles off Brandon "Don't call me Bruce" League to put the Sox up 4-2. Alex Rios then singled in Dunn to make it 5-2.

Sergio Santos would put down the Mariners in order in the tenth to get his first victory in the Majors. After pitching two scoreless innings Sunday, Santos has yet to allow a run in 12 appearances. Ozzie is still hesitant to name him our closer. Why? You'd have to ask the Venezuelan Wonder, but right now Santos is our best option out of the pen.

The Sox now go to Anaheim on Monday, May 9th to visit the Angels. Edwin Jackson (2-4, 4.98 ERA) will face Ervin Santana (1-3, 4.43 ERA). The game starts at 9:05 p.m. and can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.
