 2000 CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

Sox arms come through!

(August 27)

For the first time in who knows how long, the White Sox pitching staff won a ballgame for the rest of the team.  We would chalk it up as simply a chance occurrence except for three things:

1. It was Sean Lowe who pitched five solid innings after spending nearly a month on the DL.  He appears 100 percent again after another quality spot start, 

2. It was one of the rookie call ups, Lorenzo Barcelo who came into this pressure cooker game and performed like a seasoned veteran, shutting down all nine Mariner batters he faced in three perfect innings of relief, and finally...

3. It was a road victory against the Seattle Mariners, the team with the best home record in the league, the second-best record in the league, and a likely playoff opponent for our Sox.  The Mariners needed this game much worse than our Sox, yet we took 2 of 3 from them.

A fantastic 2-1 victory by the young Chicago White Sox.

Lowe was amazing.  He only got this start because the Sox wanted to be extra cautious bringing back James Baldwin.  Nardi Conteras was quoted as saying the Sox victory on Friday gave the Sox the luxury of moving back Baldwin's next start to Tuesday against Oakland, thus opening the door for Lowe.

The long reliever took full advantage of the opportunity.  He went five innings scattering four hits, walking three and striking out four.  The only support he got from Sox hitters was a second inning solo homer by Paul Konerko.

Then came Barcelo.  He retired ARod, and Edgar Martinez in his first inning, John Olerud and Mike Cameron in his second inning, and Rickey Henderson in his last inning.  Three innings pitched, no runs, hits, or walks.  

Ray Durham popped one over the right field wall to put the Sox ahead 2-1 in the eighth.  That put the pressure on Keith Foulke to nail down the win in the ninth which he did in spectacular fashion.  He induced an infield popout, then got ARod and Edgar Martinez on swinging strikeouts.

It's great to be a Sox fan!
