White Sox Winner!

(April 19)

Short Take:  Hey look, a win streak!!!   

Welcome home, Sox Fans!  The new White Sox Interactive is here and all the old gang is aboard!  So it's especially gratifying to report that the old Chicago White Sox showed up, too.  The Sox beat Detroit 3-1 to start a two-game win streak, win a series, and give Sox Fans renewed hope.

Let's not overlook that David Wells was everything he was advertised to be as new Sox pitching ace, too.

Wells threw exactly one-hundred pitches for a complete nine inning effort leading the Sox to victory.  Detroit got five hits in the first four innings off Wells but had nothing to show for it.  Boomer then settled in and didn't allow another hit until the eighth when the Tigers finally touched him for two hits and one run.

Jerry Manuel cleared his bench for this game.  Frank Thomas, Royce Clayton, Herbert Perry, and Sandy Alomar all sat.  Harold Baines got the start as DH with one single in four at-bats.  Tony Graffanino and Josh Paul teamed up with Chris Singleton at the bottom of the Sox order, delivering a cumulative 5 for 11 performance at the plate.  Sox Fans are having trouble remembering the last time the bottom-third was that productive.  Last September, perhaps?

The freak Jeff Weaver would not have luck with Jerry's new line up.  The top of the line up was clicking from the very start, Ray Durham singled to start the game, and Jose Valentin sacrificed him over to secondbase.  Slumping Magglio Ordonez batted Durham home.  Ordonez also batted home Valentin in the fifth inning with a an rbi single.

The bottom-third accounted for the final Sox run, Tony Graffanino getting a two-out double, and Josh Paul singling him home.  That's more like it!

Meanwhile the new staff ace was making it all hold up.  

Isn't it great to be a Sox Fan!
