Kip Terminates O's

(June 21)

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 be greater. 

One from .500.  Onward and upward!
