Bats Explode as Sox Dismantle Yankees

June 29 at New York Yankees


Today's Sox Crew:
Home Remodelers/Reclaimers
The Yankees took Quintana's remodeling plans and threw them in the trash, but Pierzynski and Co. punched them in the face and said "This is our house now, you're just playing in it" as the Sox engaged in a hostile takeover of Yankee Stadium.

Short Take: Jose Quintana pitches like a human for the first time since being called up, but the offense picked a perfect time to show up as they storm back from a 4-run deficit and turn it into a 14-7 blowout.

Ah, the dreaded "10-Game Stretch of Death". Observers stated that this would be the stretch that defines the Sox's season. Well, two games into it, and here they stand at 2-0 after today's 14-7 win against the Evil Empire, extending their winning streak to four games.

Jose Quintana took the hill for the Sox, pitching against his former team. He wasn't nearly as effective as he had been in the past, allowing four Yankees to cross the plate in the first inning. The first inning had all the makings of a long night at Yankee Stadium, especially given the Sox' offensive woes as of late. Then, just like everyone expected, the Sox tied it up the next half-inning...wait, something's not right there. Hold on, let me check...yes, the Sox indeed did score four runs of their own in the top half of the second off of Yankee starter Adam Warren, who was making his MLB debut. Normally, the Sox would get shut out by some palooka with Class-A stuff making his debut, but today, the polar tide reversed or something. A.J. Pierzynski led off the inning with a solo shot, then after Dayan Viciedo and Alexei Ramirez both hit singles, Gordon Beckham smashed a two-RBI double to right field. Alejandro De Aza made a productive out, moving Beckham to third, and Kevin Youkilis would tie it up with an RBI groundout.

The Sox would take the lead the next inning, thanks to Paul Konerko's leadoff shot to make it a 5-4 Sox lead, then Alex Rios got on, stole second and advanced to third on a bad throw by former Sox catcher Chris Stewart, and came home on A.J.'s infield single. Wait, infield single? A.J.? What is this I don't even...anyway, 6-4 Sox!

The Yankees made a game try at this one, as the Yankees called upon the "All Former Sox Brigade" to lead them from disaster. "Tommy Bahama" Nick Swisher got it started with a walk, then "The Dutch Destroyer" Andruw Jones smacked a double, with Swisher advancing to third. Then "The Superfluous Y" Jayson Nix brought them both home with a double of his own to tie the game up.

After that Yankee assault, A.J. just chuckled to himself, said "The Yankees are trying to win...isn't that cute?" and then bombed another leadoff solo jack (the third for the Sox in the game) to put the Sox right back ahead, 7-6. The Yankees had no answer for that, as they would not see the lead again for the rest of the game. From there on out, it was pretty much all Sox, as Ramirez finally hit another homer, a two-run shot, to make it 10-6. The Yanks got one last run off of Matt Thornton in the 7th off of a fielder's choice, but Thornton managed to pitch himself out of trouble.

The defining moment of this game came in the ninth inning, when the Sox scored four runs off of Cory Wade, Joe Girardi decided he needed a different pitcher, so he signaled for...DeWayne Wise?! Indeed, our old boy "The Catch" was on the bump to try to get out of the 9th inning, against Paul Konerko and Alex Rios. Pathetically, Wise was their most efficient pitcher, retiring Konerko and Rios in order. Finally, Sox farmhand Leyson Septimo made his debut to close this game out. That he did, taking out Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, and Robinson Cano in order, striking out the latter two. Sox win! To make the day even better, the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers lost, which means the Sox's lead in the AL Central is now up to 3.5 games over the Indians and 5 on the Tigers! Not bad for a team many thought would be the worst team in the AL.

With the Sox guaranteed no worse than a split of the series, they will try to win the series tomorrow at 12:05 CT. Jake Peavy looks to rebound from his poor start against the Twins, as he goes against the Yankees' Hiroki Kuroda. Let's see if the Sox can keep this train rolling, and maybe even extend their division lead some more! To have a chance at that, they have to just win, baby!
