Kip Terminates O's
Short Take: 3-hit shutout!
One game from .500. Sox Fans, who wudda thunk it? It's June 21
and the Sox have nearly resurfaced from the depths of 15 games under.
With Jose Canseco now in the middle of the line up, the Sox positively
grabbed Baltimore by the throat and left them in the ditch for dead. A
6-0 shutout victory to start an important road trip for our Pale Hose!
Kip Wells was getting it and throwing it. The elder
"overrated phenom" struck out six Orioles, walked nobody and threw a
three-hitter in eight innings work. Somewhere back in Chicago, Skip
Bayless ought to be writing a retraction in hopes of salvaging a bit of his
credibility. Fat chance that will happen, huh Sox Fans.
Kip was getting plenty of help from the Sox offense. Carlos Lee
hit a two-run dinger in the first inning. Jeff Liefer and Paul
Konerko went back-to-back jacks in the second inning, too. You
think Jeff Liefer's collar is a bit tighter with Jose Canseco's
arrival? A .240 batting average isn't good enough for corner position
power hitter to stick in the American League. He better pick it up.
Still lost in a funk is Ray Durham, another 0-fer performance in the
leadoff spot. Canseco went 1 for 5 with a double, and how about Chris
Singleton--a 3 for 4 day at the plate, scoring twice. Eight Sox
hitter rapped out 13 hits on the Orioles pitching staff.
Royce Clayton had another dinger. His trade value will never
One from .500. Onward and upward!

and no walks. Kip's ERA dips to 2.38.
