Peavy Dominates and Offense Continues Slamming HRs

May 20 at Chicago Cubs


Today's Sox Crew:
Demolition Crew
Ths Sox demolished the "Shrine" and the Lovable Losers inside and out.

Short Take:   Jake Peavy improved to 5-1 on the season, while Dunn and Beckham continued hitting the long ball.

What a crazy weekend for Chicago -- summer-like warmth in mid-May, the NATO summit in town, protesters everywhere and the Crosstown Classic. I couldn't have been happier about being nowhere near the city this weekend, even though I missed seeing a Sox sweep of the north side ballclub at the Shrine they call Wrigley. On a downright hot afternoon for baseball, the Sox made good work of the Cubs, shutting them out 6-0 Sunday afternoon.

This game was scoreless until the top of fourth when Adam Dunn and Gordon Beckham went back-to-back off Cubbie southpaw Paul Maholm (4-3), neither of which was a cheap home run. Those solo shots gave the Sox a 2-0 lead, which they would improve on an inning later, courtesy of a Tyler Flowers solo home run.

Staked to a 3-0 lead, Jake Peavy (5-1) continued his dominance of the Cubs and on the season as a whole. Peavy only found himself in trouble once all afternoon, but not until after the Sox scored two more. Jake helped his own cause, by bouncing into a fielder's choice, which plated Flowers and put the Sox on top 4-0. Peavy then scored on a sacrifice fly by Gordon Beckham, giving himself a commanding 5-0 lead. The only inning he found himself in trouble was the home half of the seventh, when he showed signs of fatigue after 100 pitches and running the bases.

While the Sox bullpen did hold the Cubs scoreless for the rest of the game, they managed to make things slightly interesting. Matt Thornton and Jesse Crain combined for 1 2/3 innings in relief, but gave Sox fans something to wring their hands over by walking the bases loaded in the eighth. Fortunately, Crain got Ian Stewart on strikes to end the inning and the Cubs only significant scoring threat of the afternoon. For good measure, the Sox added another run in the ninth, courtesy of a pinch-hit RBI double by Alex Rios. Shortly thereafter, Addison Reed shut the door, sealing the series sweep for the South Siders. After the game, Robin Ventura & Co. were once again presented the BP Crosstown Cup for their sweep of the North Siders.

For the first time in awhile, the Sox are now back to .500 with their 21-21 record and find themselves just 2 1/2 games behind the division-leading Indians. Monday is a well-deserved off day for the Sox, who will resume their schedule Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field when the cellar-dwelling Minnesota Twins come to town for a three-game set. Gavin Floyd (3-4, 3.44 ERA) will take the ball for the South Siders and he'll oppose Minnesota's P.J. Walters (1-1, 3.65 ERA). The first pitch will be thrown at 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WCIU.
