Sox Brew Up First Extra-Inning Home Victory

June 24 vs. Milwaukee Brewers


Today's Sox Crew:
Two-Man Wrecking Crew
A combination of Jose Quintana and Eduardo Escobar sealed an extra-inning victory for the White Sox.

Short Take:   Jose Quintana pitched eight innings of shut out ball, this time in front of his dad, but he did not figure in the decision.

After an exciting, late-inning victory Saturday night, the White Sox looked to not only add to their Sunday win total, but to take the series against the struggling Milwaukee Brewers. Heading into Sunday's contest, the Sox were 8-9 in interleague play this season and were looking to finish with a .500 record against National League teams. Fortunately for them, Jose Quintana was on the bump for the South Siders. He of the 1.25 ERA, Quintana pitched eight innings of six-hit ball and was dazzling once again. Unfortunately, he didn't figure in the decision, as it took his teammates 10 innings to get the job done. Sox win 1-0!

Mirroring Friday night's game, this contest remained scoreless until the 10th inning. Facing Milwaukee reliver Manny Parra (0-2), Alejandro De Aza led off the inning with a double. With one out, Parra walked Adam Dunn. Eduardo Escobar, who hit for Brent Lillibridge, came through with a base hit to deep center, driving home De Aza with the only run of the ballgame.

Brewers starter Michael Fiers didn't figure in the decision either, despite matching Quintana pitch-for-pitch. The eighth figured to be Fiers's undoing when he allowed a leadoff single to Alexei Ramirez and then a double by De Aza to deep right. With one out, Ron Roenicke went to Francisco Rodriguez, who got both Gordon Beckham and Adam Dunn on strikes to end what was the Sox biggest offensive threat of the ballgame, prior to the 10th inning. On the flip side, it was a combination of Addison Reed and Brian Bruney (1-0) out of the Sox bullpen who held the Brewers scoreless in their chances in the ninth and 10th innings, respectively.

This ballgame wasn't without some off-field drama, either. Around the eighth inning, rumors of a trade for Kevin Youkilis began flying around. Brent Lillibridge, who pinch-ran for Paul Konerko during the Sox offensive threat in the ninth, was suddenly replaced in the lineup an inning later with Eduardo Escobar, who got the game-winning hit. With that move, it became imminent that the Lillibeast, as he was known to WSI, was likely part of the Youkilis deal.

After taking the series from the struggling Brewers Sunday afternoon, the White Sox have regained sole possession of first place by the slimmest of margins, thanks to some help from the Houston Astros. The first place Sox now head out on the road for a week, playing three in Minnesota and four in New York. Jake Peavy (6-3, 2.74 ERA) will take the ball for the Sox on Monday night and he'll oppose Minnesota's Francisco Liriano (1-7, 5.74 ERA). The first pitch is scheduled for 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on Comcast SportsNet.

KW Appreciates The Game:
The first extra-inning win at home this season, combined with the acquisition of Kevin Youkilis to play third base, made for a great day for me!
