Sox bats were asleep in the first few innings of this game but then Paulie went crazy. 3 home runs and 7 rbi's tonight - that's unbelievable! Great win - #9 this year for Mark Buehrle. Keep it going tomorrow, boys. :bandance::bandance::bandance:

Paul Konerko

Konerko was one shy, by in home runs and RBIs of tying team single-game records, but he certainly hit them when they counted -- the first two, anyway. He tied the game with his first and gave the White Sox their final lead with the second. The third home run pushed his batting average over .300. It looks like the win will push the Sox back into second as they keep pace with the Tigers.

Cleveland is an explosive team. They are a last place team that loses a lot of games, but they have shown all year, most memorably against the Yankees, Rays and A's, that they can hurt a pitching staff. Mark Buehrle pitched very well. The Sox are going to need a couple more strong, deep starts in this series.

I think I picked the right game to go to. Paulies slam was amazing, the bonus one was just special to make it a 3 homer night. A 3 run home run from the Homer Cycle.:bandance:

They had a graphic on CSN after the game that said this was the first 3 HR game by a Sox player in US Cellular Field history.

Did I read that right? :o: If so, I find it amazing that it wasn't until the 19th season at the new park that a Sox hitter slugged 3 HRs at home.

ESPN said Valintine had in 2003. But they didn't specify the Cell or not.

Seemed pretty full to me. When the Indians hit a home run to left field people were urging to throw it back and I chimed in on the yells stating that you will get ejected and that we aren't the Cubs. Do I sound like a Cell regular?

I agree that it looked fuller than 25k...Stoney and Hawk said the same thing..the bleachers looked almost full as did the whole lower bowl.

Without a doubt, since I have come to America, Paul Konerko has been the second best baseball player to play for the Sox behind big Frank. What a joy it has been to watch him win a world series and play well for us year after year.

The White Sox can win this thing, and I believe this team will fire on all cylinders much sooner than later.

I have no idea if it is a rare thing or not.

Of possible interest on Sowers . . .

Against the Sox this year: 0-4, 7.08 ERA

Against non-(White) Sox this year: 2-3, 5.21 ERA

First two times through order against Sox this year: .239 BAA

After first two times through order against Sox this year: .600 BAA

Not a good year, obviously, but even worse against Sox in middle innings . . .

According to Dave Van Dyck, the last Sox player to hit 3 HR in a home game was Harold Baines in 1982.

Wow! I wouldn't have guess this hasn't happened in 27 years.

I haven't read the story, but I know Harold Baines did it twice for the Sox, but the second time was in the Metrodome in 1984. The third time Harold Baines did it, he was playing for the A's in 1991. (He also had a double and walked in his five appearances. Fortunately it came against the Orioles in Oakland, and not the White Sox.) Frank Thomas, who, like Harold Baines, is one of the greatest hitters I've ever watched, did it for the White Sox in 1996 in Fenway in a game most people remember. He also did it for the Blue Jays, in Toronto against the Red Sox in 2007, but only the first two came against Tim Wakefield.

Paul Konerko might have done it sooner if Jimmy Gobble had been a starting pitcher for the Royals, and they left in him to face Konerko three times.

Hitting three home runs in a game doesn't happen often for the White Sox. I think Claudell Washington had the previous home three-homer game for the Sox in 1979 -- on Bastille Day. He entered the mid-season game with just two home runs. He also hit three in a game for the Mets. Before that, I believe you have to go back to Bill Melton for a three-homer game in a White Sox uniform, but he did it in Sicks Stadium in Seattle against the Pilots in 1969, just missing a fourth home run by inches.

Tim Raines did for the Sox in 1994, in Fenway, especially impressive considering Tim Wakefield hadn't come up with the Red Sox yet. Jose Valentin was the last player to hit three homers for the Sox in a game in Kansas City in 2003, which I believe is the most recent time it was done in a White Sox uniform.

People were complaining in the game thread last night that the Sox weren't hitting Sowers, "how could the Sox be losing to Sowers?" etc. How could they be losing to someone with such a high ERA?

It's kind of funny. If the Sox don't get anyone on base in the first inning, people are complaining that they are making this guy with an ERA over 5 look like Cy Young.

Of course, the A in ERA stands for average. If he got hit in every inning the way he got hit in his last inning (and it's probably true for most of his last innings), his ERA would be close to 30. And his first inning would generally be his last. Or it might be in AAA.

I got interested in the stats I posted when a friend told me he had heard on ESPN that, lifetime, the Sox batted less than .200 against Sowers the first two times through the order but more than .400 the third time and later. In fact, my friend even called me last night when Podsednik led off the sixth to say, "here we go!"

I was thinking the same thing you were about his getting hit in every inning the way he got hit in his last inning. But I can't figure his splits page at http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?n1=sowerje01&year=Career&t=p. At the top of the page, it seems like his BAA for the third (or subsequent) time through the lineup is .500+ (25-for-44). But further down the page it looks like it's .269 (79-for-317). Either way, seems like he might be better in long relief.
