Glad to see Broadway settle down after the 2nd and pitch well. Nice to see Paulie go yard, nice to see the Sox pick up their pitcher after a rough first inning.

Good job all the way around, get even a half a game up on the Twins, now off to Oakland for a few out there.

2-0 against KC. Not exactly impressive, but he got the job done.

He pitched incredibly well today considering he settled down really well after the 1st and 2nd innings. Had Konerko made that play behind him in the first, he might of given up one run or maybe even none.

Good home stand. Win 2 of 3 from those struggling A's and we're good.

This link (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/recbooks/rb_hr8.shtml) is buried near the end of the first game thread today. If anyone has questions about team records for home runs in an inning, this should answer it.

Broadway had a rough first inning, but had the composure to stay in the game. Royals fans, if any care, might have complained that their team was making him look like Cy Young. But the only runs the Royals scored in the series were those two in the first off Broadway.

The Sox didn't extend Carrasco today, who could be needed in the bullpen in the coming days. They didn't extend anyone but Russell, who is at the back of the pen anyway.

The Sox should have scored a lot more runs early. They left five in scoring position in the first three innings. But they still had the lead. The longer the pitching shut down the Royals, the better the chances for the Sox power had to put the game away. Thome did that with his two-out three-run home. The rest made it possible for players to knock off early. In the case of Jenks and probably Thornton, the afternoon off.

It would have been special to have been in the ballpark for the four consecutive home runs, with the scoreboard exploding each time. The pyrotechnics were probably still streaking in the air when Konerko hit out the first pitch he saw. But what I liked about this series was the pitching. You can't complain about allowing two runs in three games. The starting pitching since Boston came into town, and even the early relief when Contreras went down, came through.

What a way to show up the Royals after the last series in Kansas City. Pardon us while we completely kick your butts, Royals.

And somewhere, there are Twins fans complaining that the Royals lay down for the Sox after playing the Twins so tough in Minnesota last weekend.

Big Win. Kudos to

Broadway....recovered after shaky defense put him in a hole. Showed some poise out there. Earned the win and another shot vs Seattle.

Thome...after a very slow start, he is at 71 RBI's and could concievably get to 100...and will lead all DH's in homers and rbis.

PK...could have pouted after his error in the 1st and his first at bat..but came back with a 3 hit game and a homer...

Juany...this guy is back to life,big time. Hot at the plate, making all the plays at third....Juan is back!!!

JD...Mr Steady...just keeps hitting ..went thru a brief cool period earlier in the week but is back and doing his thing. Missed a granny by about two feet.

Russell...looked dominant the last two inning. Good to see.

Now, we are at the season high 16 over.500 but the fricking A's loom. That makes tomorrow nites game huge,imo. Break thru that pyschological barrier of 16 over and deal with the hex out in Oakland at the same time.
I am not displeased that we will not see Sweeney...he has hurt us. But we will see Gio..and two other leftys..Smith shut us down once already.
So let kill the A's hex, the lefty hex and the 16 over .500 hex all on the same nite....tomorrow. Go Sox.

The good: Sox win convincingly. Back-to-back-to-back-to-back HR? Are you kidding me?! Bring on the dog-awful A's, woot! :bandance:

The bad: the way Broadway pitched earlier in the game - falling behind in the count; 88 mph fastball into wheelhouse; leaving change-up up; nonexistent "best in the draft" curveball - he would have likely gotten killed by about 15 different teams... of which the slumping Royals thankfully were not one.

Ugly: Konerko's defense. The other day, a Gordon's "triple" was basically an out Swisher would have had. And today, he royally screws up a DP, which while far from routine, a good major leaguer on a team with World Series aspirations, should get at least one out on.

Yeah, Thornton was money for about the first 3 months or so, Gabe Gross aside. Lots of "high stress" innings success.

But his critics are also right: the season is 7 months not 3 months long; and if Thornton continues to be wild & unable to throw a quality breaking ball consistently down the stretch, causing the Sox to lose big games... his excellent first half won't be much consolation.

I am also thinking his back is (negatively) affecting him more than the Sox let on.

Thornton hasn't really cost us many games though either. I mean there was the game in Boston where Dotel bailed him out and he allowed the runner to score on the wild pitch. But you are going to have bad outings every now and then out of any pitcher. Right now he is the 3rd best pitcher in our bullpen. And not many guys can toss 97 heat from the left side with ease. I wouldn't trade Thornton for anyone right now...

I won't argue with that... although he did the team no favors by arguably costing them 2 big runs in the 1st with his glove AND then leaving bases loaded in the bottom half of the inning. His HR with the team firmly in control of the game was nice, but nothing more than that.

I've given Paulie 3 lifetime's worth of breaks. And unlike some here - you know who you are, lol - who secretly root for Kong to fail so Brian Anderson can play, I am very happy when he succeeds.

But one thing I would NEVER do for Konerko or any other player for that matter is put on ultra-rosey glasses or blindly accept things that aren't acceptable - just for the sake of fitting in, crowd-pleasing, etc.

Secondly, Logan was one of our top relievers, too, up until this past month, so your judgment is a little skewed.

I'm not the one who has said it, but someone points out how PK has done much better when the pressure is off. That HR was icing on the already made cake.

1) You're going to blame him for not driving runs in when there's nobody on? He got three hits! It's not his fault that he lead off an inning twice and came up after a HR. He got hits both of times he lead off, and stole second the second time he lead off. It's not his fault he didn't get knocked in afterward. One time he came up with runners on. 3 of the other 4 at-bats were hits. But it's still his fault he didn't drive runners in.

2) Two of his hits came when the game was 3-2, and the 3rd came directly after Thome's HR. I think that's pressure enough.

Why are people picking this guy apart even when he has a good game?

First of all, Carlos Quentin saved this season; I think that entitles him to a bit more leeway in terms of failing at the plate, no? Secondly, Dye picked Quentin up by smoking a double, while Konerko's stranded batters at the time hurt - especially with Broadway pitching as badly as he was in the early going.

Thome? Hit a HR that actually mattered in terms of blowing a tight game wide open. And, he too, has been carrying this team on his aged back for 2+ months.

But most importantly... my comment was obviously limited to Konerko's lately-awful glove. Someone else tried to stick his offense in my face, and they got a proper response.

First off, you didn't give him a "proper" response, you gave him a dismissive, smart-assed response. He left out one at-bat, and you fired back as if that one at bat changes everything.

Secondly, in regards to the part of your post I've bolded, you're "blindly accepting something unacceptable" in regards to Quentin's at bat by saying that Dye got the job done for him. So Konerko's at bat was worse because he didn't have someone come up and drive the runs in for him afterward?

Anyway, I'm getting away from my original point. Stop being so damned critical of Konerko's performance today. I'm not saying let him off the hook for the season, just give him a break. He made an error. So what? So did Cabrera. We won the game anyway, and that's what matters.

I was at the game....great atmosphere and the 4 homers in a row was unreal. I know I've never seen that before and I'm not sure what the record is (I haven't read through this thread to see if it was mentioned).

Did anyone else who was at the game see the Cubs fan leaving the left field bleachers with a bloody nose? I'm guessing he was stirring up trouble but I didn't see any fight break out.

Secondly, in regards to the part of your post I've bolded, you're "blindly accepting something unacceptable" in regards to Quentin's at bat by saying that Dye got the job done for him. So Konerko's at bat was worse because he didn't have someone come up and drive the runs in for him afterward? .

Again, just because I chose Konerko's glove for the "Ugly", doesn't necessarily mean that there aren't other occurences in the game that effectively fall under same category. I thought that was beyond obvious; feel free to post your own Good-Bad-Ugly. Ya dig?

Again you insist on discussing Konerko's offense... So I will: there is a difference between hitting with 1 out and 2 outs. It may be counter-intuitive, and even unfair insofar as that it places slightly different expectations on each hitter.... but it's more of an imperative to come through with 2 outs than it is with 1 out for obvious reasons that you saw in action today: Quentin failed miserably but Dye came up and smoked a double that missed being a granny by a couple of feet - whereas, Konerko greedily overswung on a ball inside knowing full well that failure meant the INNING IS OVER AND NO RUNS SCORE - especially damning considering Konerko had just cost the team 1-2 runs with his glove, and Broadway looked like he was going to fall apart. Paulie's unwillingness to hit situationally could have cost the team dearly today.

(And before you say anything.... no, it's not an excuse for TCQ failing to left a sac fly, either)

I'm really wondering why Toby Hall wasn't sent down. I mean he could have created history for our Sox but he greedily struck out. Talk about not doing his fair share.

Sox did get a record, Quentin hit in 6 straight days. The part I like is him not backing down, don't change anything son

I envy the fans who went to the game today. It must have been a blast, literally.

I'm just totally happy about today's game. Please White Sox, keep this smile on my face!! :D:

I KNEW there was a reason my mind and body felt at peace this afternoon as I was hiking around Escalante Canyon...must've been ESP or something.

That must've been cool to witness firsthand! I'm so glad Broadway did so well. Maybe he'll fit in that 5th starter spot for the rest of the season! Hopefully this will continue in Oakland.

Not only was it awesome to be there for the four straight bombs, we had a great Air and Water Show preview with the Blue Angels and others flying right over the park. Great day to be in the right field upper deck!

After one close pass, Nancy broke into "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines." Gotta love Nancy!

And that's another benefit to going to these weekday games. You get Nancy, and that's always great. :cool:

Great decision by me not to go to the game yesterday. 4 consecutive HRs and the Blue Angels flying overhead, not to mention TCQ extending his HBP record. Granted, I only gave up upper deck tickets, but I think it would have been better than seeing my daughter's softball team pummeled 21-1. Keep it going Sox and get some distance between the evil Twins!
