Four Errors, No Problem!

(July 16)

Short Take:  .500 again, baby!

Four errors.  Four!  Once upon a time, even one error was enough to deflate our White Sox leading inevitably to another pathetic Sox loss.  Tonight Jerry Manuel (Jose Canseco in right field?)used some crazy line up choices, watched the club take the lead, lose it, get it back, and hold on for victory.  An ugly but oh so sweet victory in Milwaukee, 6-5 over the Brewers!  Back to .500!

Ah, the errors.  Isn't that what everyone wants to know about.  Yes, Jose Valentin led the way with two.  Ray Durham has one, too.  Paul Konerko had one bounce off his glove at first base.  Perfectly ugly baseball.  Make that, perfectly ugly WINNING baseball!  That's the only kind Sox Fans care about!

In the #2 hole, Valentin's got on base three times, all of them walks.  Durham pitched in a hit, one of only seven the Sox got en route to scoring six runs.  Konerko was hitless but walked and scored.  The four errors ultimately led to nothing more than a bit of indigestion for Sox Fans.  Winning cures that ill!

James Baldwin had a showcase start, several contenders interested in seeing him pitch before making offers to Sox GM Kenny Williams.  He had a nice strike zone to work with collecting eight K's in five innings work  The five hits and two errors led to four Brewer runs, two earned.  

Baldwin left the game with his sixth win of the season after a big four-run sixth inning put the Sox back on top.  Magglio Ordonez batted one in with a sacrifice, Royce Clayton tripled (!) to bat in two more, and pinch hitter Herbert Perry brought Clayton home with an rbi single.  Four hits, four runs.  Sweet!

The bullpen was awesome.  Jon Garland had a bit of trouble with two walks, but Gary Glover picked him up, himself pitching 2.1 innings relief with only a dinger to blemish the effort.  Keith Foulke shut the door in the ninth for his 21st save of the season.

Errors be damned, make that 45-45, and color the Sox a .500 team again!    

Let's Go Go Go White Sox, Chicago's Proud of You!

Royce Clayton

His clutch two-out triple with two runners on-base was the key hit to a four-run inning that launched the Sox to victory.
