Fourteen Innings of FUN!

August 16 vs. Indians

Getting the win was nice, but the Sox kept getting hit by Indians fireballs.

Short Take:   Juan Pierre walks it off in 14 innings

Before we get to tonight's recap, I want to send out congratulations to Jim Thome on hitting his 600th home run last night. I miss you on the South Side, Big Jim. Congratulations!

I was able to attend tonight's game. It was a last-minute thing, but it made me happy since I don't get to attend many games. I was all ready to go. I had my Pierzynski jersey and was looking forward to seeing my favorite team play.

I'm not sure how many of you follow me on Twitter and know my "how I became a baseball fan" story, but in a nutshell, AJ is the reason I'm the baseball fan I am today. He's been my favorite player since I first started watching baseball in 2004. So you can imagine my intense sadness when I found out he was on the disabled list for the first time in his career from when Bruce Chen hit him on the wrist.

But I was determined to have a good time tonight. And I definitely did. Gavin Floyd pitched...meh, he was OK. He lasted 5.2 innings and gave up five runs on five hits and a walk. He struck out nine, so that was nice. Will Ohman didn't have such a great game. He came on to get the last out of the sixth, but instead walked the bases loaded and walked in a run before getting the last out.

Chris Sale came on for the seventh and pitched through the eighth. He gave up one run on one hit and a walk in 2.0 innings. Sergio Santos came on to close the game in the ninth. Unfortunately that didn't work out so well. Santos gave up a run on two hits and a walk. It wasn't entirely Santos's fault. Gordon Beckham bobbled a double play ball, and the tying run scored on that play.

Matt Thornton and Jesse Crain each pitched 2.0 innings. They both gave up a hit, and Crain also walked three. Luckily no runs scored in those innings. Jason Frasor came on for the 14th. He pitched the whole innings and didn't allow a hit or a walk.

White Sox hitters did decently tonight. They hit five triples tonight, the most in a single game since a club-tying record six in September 1920. However, only two of those triples actually came around to score. The most maddening one for me was Alex Rios's lead-off triple in the 11th. He hit a triple with NO OUTS, yet no one was able to get him in.

All of the starters had at least one hit. Yes, even Adam Dunn. Paul Konerko and Brent Morel both had excellent nights. Konerko went 4-for-6 with a walk, an RBI, and a run scored. Morel went 4-for-7 with a run scored. One of Konerko's hits was a double, despite the fact that his leg still seems to be giving him a problem. Juan Pierre had two RBIs and went 3-for-7. One of those RBIs was a solo home run in the fourth, and the other was the walk-off single in the 14th. With that walk off, the Sox beat the Indians 8-7.

Since the Tigers won today, the Sox still sit 3.5 games behind Detroit. However, they're only half a game out of second. Tomorrow night we see Mark Buehrle take on Fausto Carmona. In his last start, Buehrle allowed three or fewer runs in his 18th consecutive start, tying the club record. He also hasn't picked up a loss since June 16 in Minnesota. Carmona is 0-2 in his last four starts, despite posting a 3.04 ERA in those games.
