 2000 CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON
Part Four:  the seven days that made our season, consecutive road sweeps of New York and Cleveland.

Hot Sox Bomb Bronx!

(June 15, 2000)

If the Chicago White Sox could pick just one time to get white-hot, they couldn't have picked a better time than right now.  The Sox are in the middle of a 14-game stretch playing the Yankees and Indians in four consecutive series.  They finished sweeping the Tribe late Wednesday night, got to New York early Thursday morning, then picked apart the world champions in another convincing victory, 12-3.  

The Yankees must wonder what hit them, but nobody worse than Chuck Knoblauch who committed three errors at third base before being taken out of the game.  The Sox were already ahead 4-3 in the fifth inning when Knoblauch committed his second error allowed one unearned run.  From there the Sox just poured it on, scoring on Knoblauch third error in the sixth inning for another unearned run, opening up a 6-3 lead.  Two more runs were scored in each of the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings, the  big blow coming from Magglio Ordonez going deep with Frank Thomas aboard.

Leadoff man Ray Durham again was key to the Sox attack, going 2 for 5, scoring twice and driving in one.  Paul Konerko had a huge night going 3 for 5 with a homer, a double, and 3 rbi's.  Brook Fordyce is showing signs of breaking out of his hitting slump going 3 for 4 in the #9 spot.  The Yankees made sure Frank Thomas didn't hurt them, walking the Big Hurt three times.  He still finished 1 for 3, scoring once and driving in one.

Mike Sirotka was his usual gutsy self, allowing ten hits in 5-2/3 innings, but allowing just three runs.  He struck out three and walked one.  He picks up his sixth win.  Bill Simas pitched 1-2/3rd scoreless innings for his fifth hold, and Kelly Wunsch and Keith Foulke polished off New York for the final two innings.

Staff ace James Baldwin goes for the Sox Friday evening against struggling David Cone.
