    Only a month and a half away. I've been so lonely without the Sox on Saturday afternoons.
    Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
    I hope that's all.

          White Sox 10,Indians 4

          Off and Running!

          On perhaps the most festive and emotional Opening Day in franchise history,the Defending World Champions White Sox picked up where they left off with a 10-4 win over the visiting Cleveland Indians on Sunday Night.

          The festivities got off to a rousing start with the unfurling of the Chanpionship banners hanging from the outfield light towers prior to the game.

          Once the game began,Mark Buehrle was his old self,working very quicky for the first 3 innings.

          The Sox jumped out in the 3rd inning on an RBI groundout by Scott Podsednik scoring Juan Uribe.Tadahito Iguchi singled home Brian anderson to make it 2-0 Sox.Then later in the inning,Paul Konerko brought home Iguchi on a sac fly to right.

          The Tribe tied the game right away in the 4th on an RBI double by Victor Martinez,and a 2-run homer from Eduardo Perez.

          After Cleveland was retired in the 4th,the rains came,causing a 2 hour and 57 minute delay.

          But once play resumed,it was time for the Sox to erupt,and that they did.

          The Sox scored 3 times in the bottom of the 4th capped off by Jim Thome's 2-run bomb deep into the right field seats to make it 6-3 Good Guys.They added another 3-spot in the 5th inning on an RBI single by AJ Pierzynski,scoring Jermaine Dye.Brian Anderson followed later in the inning with a 2-run single scoring Pierzynski and Joe Crede.

          Dye made it 10-3 with a single scoring Gooch in the 6th.

          Cleveland got a run back in the 8th on a run scoring sac fly by Jhonny Peralta.

          Outside of Buehrle's 4th inning trouble,the pitching was brilliant in the game.Buehrle allowed 3 runs on 4 hits in 4 innings pitched.He was replaced after play resumed by Brandon McCarthy and was stellar in middle relief.McCartrhy went 3 inning,retiring all 9 men he faced,striking out 2 in picking up the win.

          WALK THE LINE; White Sox batters walked 9 times in the game.

          Jermaine Dye was 3-3 with 2 infield hits and a walk in the game.Thome was 1-2 with an absolute bomb to right field in the 4th that was measured at 438 feet.Brian Anderson was 2-3 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored.

          Cleveland starter CC Sabathia left the game with an abdominal strain in the 3rd inning.He went 2 1/3 innings,and was charged with 3 runs on 3 hits.

            Indians 8,White Sox 2

            It was a combination of 2 things on 35th and Shields this afternoon.

            #1). Cleveland starter Jake Westbrook was very sharp in his outing.and #2.) Sox starter Freddy Garcia was the complete opposite.

            That added up to an 8-2 Cleveland win on a sunkissed afternoon as the White Sox recieved thier 2005 World Series rings.

            The Tribe jumped on the board first when Victor Martinez took Garcia out of the park in the 2nd inning for a quick 1-0 lead.They would add 3 more in the 4th on RBI singles by Aaron Boone,Casey Blake,and Grady Sizemore.

            The Sox got on the board in the bottom of the inning when Jim Thome cleared the right field bleachers with an absolute bomb.It was his 2nd in as many games and broght the Sox to within 3 at 4-1.His blast was estimated at 448 feet.

            Cleveland put it away for all intents and purposes in the 5th inning when they put up another 3-spot,highlighted by Aaron Boone's 2-run double.Boone would add a solo homer in the 7th inning.

            The Sox got one back in the bottom of the 7th when Rob Mackowiak's groundout scored AJ Pierzynski.

            T: 2:35.
            Att: 37,591

            NOTES;Freddy Garcia went 4+ innings and was charged with 7 runs,all earned on 9 hits,walking 2 and striking out 2.

            Jake Westbrook was superb in his start,going 6 1/3 innings,giving up 2 runs on 6 hits,walking 1 and striking out 4.

            The loss knocks the White Sox out of 1st place for the 1st time since the end of the 2004 season.The span lasted 186 days.

            AJ Pierzynski had a wonderful last 24 hours.Last night,he was in Indianapolis watching his alma mater Florida Gators win the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.This afternoon,when his name was called to get his ring,he was doing "The Gator Chop" for Florida.As his at-bat music this afternoon,it was the University of Florida fight song.

            White Sox record;1-1,tied for 2nd place with Cleveland,1/2 game behind Detroit.

              I'll add to that the season began on April 4th last year for us, so that's a span of 365 total days, 186 game days. Monday night marked the first time since April 17th the White Sox didn't hold SOLE possesion of first place a span of 351 total days. We can get 'em!:gt
              Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
              I hope that's all.

                Indians 4, White Sox 3(11 innings)

                The White Sox left 14 men on base in a 4-3, 11 inning loss to the visiting Cleveland Indians Wednesday afternoon.

                Cleveland got on the board in the 1st inning when starter Jose Contreras got himself in trouble early.With the bases loaded,Victor Martinez scored Jason Michaels on a sac fly.Then after Ben Broussard walked to reload the bases,Ronnie Belliard was hit by a pitch scoring Jhommy Peralta to make it a 2-0 Cleveland lead.

                The Sox got one back in the 4th when Rob Mackowiak's base hit scored Tadahito Iguchi to cut the Tribe lead to 2-1.

                The Sox got the tying and go-ahead runs in the bottom of the 6th inning.Gooch led off the inning with a single to center.Jim Thome was drilled in the back by a pitch from starter Cliff Lee.Konerko then walked to load the bases.The next batter Rob Mackowiak hit a sharp grounder to Broussard at 1st,who came up thorwing to C Victor Martinez to force Iguchi at home.

                Lee then hit AJ Pierzynski to score Thome to tie the game at 2.

                After Matt Miller replaced Lee,he got Juan Uribe to hit into a sac fly to RF Casey Blake,scoring Konerko to give the Sox a shrt-lived 3-2 lead.

                With rookie Boone Logan on the hill in the 8th inning,Sox killer Travis Hafner delivered a solo bomb deep into the RF seats to tie the game at 3.

                The Sox had a golden opportunity in the 9th to pull out a win.With 1 out,Gooch singled,then went to 2nd on a Guillermo Mota wild pitch,thus taking the bat out of Jim Thome's hand as he was walked intentionally.Konerko then struck out for the 2nd out,Mackowiak walked to load the bases before Pierzynski popped out to Peralta in short left field.

                After a scoreless 10th,the Tribe broke through against Neal Cotts as Casey Blake doubled home Jason micheals to untie the game.

                The Sox got a baserunner on in the 11th against closer Bob Wickman,but coudn't capitalize.

                  Royals 11,White Sox 7

                  The Chicago White Sox held a 6-0 lead after 3 1/2 innings of play tonight,but the host Kansas City Royals pounded the Sox the rest of the way in picking up thier 1st win of the season in front of a loud,boisterous crowd tonight.The royals defeated the Sox by an 11-7 count.

                  Thisng looked real good early for the south siders as they opened the 1st inning with 5 runs.The Sox loaded the bases in the 1st inning with 0 out when Paul Konerko doubled home Pablo Ozuna and Tadahito Iguchi for a quick 2-0 lead.

                  Joe Crede and Juan Uribe then singled home runs to up the lead to 4-0,and Rob Mackowiak's RBI groundout gave the Sox a 5-0 lead before starter Jon Garland took the mound.

                  The Sox added another run in the 3rd inning when with runners on 2nd and 3rd,catcher Chris Widger's sac fly scoring Konerko seemingly put the game away at 6-0.

                  But these weren't the Kansas City Royals that we all know and love.They began chipping away in the 4th inning as they began to tattoo Garland at will.In all fairness,LF Pablo Ozuna misplayed 2 deep flies in the inning,thanks to a howling wind blowing in from left.Ozuna first misplayed Reggie Sanders' fly ball allowing Mark Grudzielanek to score from 2nd.Later in the inning,Ozuna broke in for an Emil Brown fly ball,only to have to change directions,and by that time,it was too late,Brown had himself a double,scoring Sweeney and Sanders.

                  Angel Berroa then doubled to Ozuna scoring 2 more rus,and just like that,the Royals were back in the game at 6-5.

                  After the Sox scored a run in the 5th to make it 7-5,the Royals tied the game in the bottom of the inning on a wild picth and a run scoring sac fly to tie the game at 7.

                  John Buck gave KC the lead in the 6th with a double that ended up chasing Garland.Matt Thornton gave up another double to David DeJesus to close the book on Garland.

                  The Royals added single tallies in the 7th and 8th innings to complete the carnage.

                    Royals 4,White Sox 3

                    Mike Sweeney's 2-run line drive shot off Cliff Politte in the bottom of the 8th was the difference as the Kansas City Royals defeated the White sox for the 2nd straight game 4-3.

                    The Sox jumped out in front in the 4th on joe Crede's sac fly to center,scoring Jim Thome.

                    The Royals came back against starter Javier Vazquez in the 6th inning when Reggie Sanders doubled scoring Mark Grudzielanek and Mike Sweeney to give KC a 2-1 lead.

                    The White Sox re-took the lead in the top of the 8th inning when with Brian Anderson on 2nd,and Scott Podsednik at 1st,Jim Thome hit a ringing double off the left field wall off reliever Andrew Cisco to tie the game.Then 1 out later,AJ Pierzynski hit a sharp grounder to 1st baseman Doug Mientkewicz.He could not find the handle on the ball,and the pitcher did not cover 1st,so he had to eat the ball and Podsednik scored to give the Sox a short-libved 3-2 lead.

                    But in the bottom of the 8th with Cliff Politte on the hill,Grudzielanek led off with a single,then Sox killer Mike Sweeney lined a shot into the 1st row of the left field seats to give the Royals a 4-3 lead.

                    Ambiorix Burgos struck out the 1st 2 batters in the 9th before getting PH Ross Gload to fly out to center to end the game.

                      Hey whats happening? I even thought they'd be u by 3 right now. If someone said the Tigers were up 4 games this early I would never have believed in it. Well keep up the good work. lol

                        White Sox 3,Royals 1

                        Buehrle's KC Masterpiece

                        Mark Buehrle put an end to the 4-game skid as he threw 8 innings of shutout ball as the White Sox took a 3-1 win at Kauffman Stadium this afternoon,salvaging the finale of a 3-game series.

                        Buehrle was on his game this afternoon,going 8 innings,giving up 6 hits and striking out 1,while throwing an economical 88 pitches.

                        Offensively,the Sox pretty much got all they needed in the 2nd inning when Joe Crede drove in a pair with a double to left,scoring Jermaine Dye and AJ Pierzynski.

                        Jim Thome put an exclamation point on the game with a mammoth solo blast to right field in the 8th inning off losing pitcher Scott Elarton.

                        Bobby Jenks pitched the 9th inning,allowing a home run to Reggie Sanders for the Royals' only tally.

                          The White Sox spoiled Detroit's home opener with an excellent all-around effort in a 5-3 win at Comerica Park this afternoon before a sellout crowd of 44,179.

                          Freddy Garcia pitched much better than he did last Tuesday vs. Cleveland,this time giving up 3 runs on 5 hits in 6 innings of work for his 1st win of the season.It was also his 100th career victory.Bobby Jenks pitched a 1-2-3 9th inning for his 2nd save.

                          Offensively,it was the long ball that did it for the Sox this afternoon.Jim Thome hit another absolute bomb in the 3rd inning off Tiger starter Jeremy Bonderman for a 2-run shot to tie the game at 2.

                          Joe Crede hit a line drive 2-run shot in the 6th and Paul Konerko cranked out his 1st of the season,a solo shot in the 8th.

                          The defense was also spectacular in the game,as Joe Crede flashed some leather,taking away a hit from Magglio Ordonez,and kepping the Tigers off the board in the 1st inning.Crede made another defensive gem in the 5th when he took a hit away from Placido Polanco.

                            In a lightning quick game,the White Sox climbed back to the .500 mark with a 4-3 win over the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park this afternoon.

                            Jose Contreras picked up his 1st win of the season as he went 8 strong innings,giving up a solo home run to Craig Monroe in the 6th inning.He threw 110 pitches and 77 strikes,walking 1.striking out 2,on 6 hits.

                            Bobby Jenks gave up a 2-run homer to Chris Shelton in the 9th inning,while collecting his 3rd save of the season.

                            Jim Thome homered for the 5th time this season for the Sox in the 4th inning,a solo shot off Tigers pitcher Nate Robertson(1-1).

                            The Sox added 3 more in the 7th,highlighted by Paul Konerko's 2-run single scoring Tadahito Iguchi and Jim Thome.

                              April 13- White Sox 13,Tigers 9

                              In a game where effective pitching was practically non-existent,the White Sox survived a 13-9 sugfest against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park this afternoon completing thier first 3-game sweep of the year.

                              Starter Jon Garland was ineffective in his outing,despite picking up his 1st win of the year.Garland worked 5 innings,giving up 7 runs and tying a career high with 13 hits in the game.

                              This was a game that featured combined total of 38 hits.

                              The Sox got on the board against Tigers fireballer Justin Verlander in the 1st inning on back-to-back monster blasts by Tadahito Iguchi and Jim Thome.Yep,that guy again.

                              For Gooch,it was his 1st of the year.Thome now has 6.

                              The Sox looked like they were going to run away and hide in the 3rd inning when they scored 5 runs in the inning-all with 2 out to make it 7-1.That scorung barrage began wih an RBI single by Jermaine Dye,followed by an RBI double by AJ Pierzynski scoring Dye.Joe Crede singled home AJ to make it 6-1.Then SS Alex Cintron hit the 1st of his 2 triples in the game to score Crede to make it 7-1 Sox.

                              They added 2 more in the 4th on Thome's RBI double scoring Scott Podsednik,and would score himself on Dye's single to make it 9-1.

                              After Chris Shelton hit a 2-run homer(#7 for the season) for the Tigers in the bottom of the 4th,the Sox made it 10-3 on Cintron's 2nd triple of the game scoring Joe Crede.

                              But Garland ran into a whole heap of trouble in the 5th.Former Sox slugger Magglio Ordonez took Garland deep for a 2-run shot to cut the lead to 10-5.Carlos Guillen doubled later in the inning to score Shelton to make it 10-6.Then Craig monroe drove home Guillen to make it 10-7.

                              Detroit made it 10-8 in the 6th against Brandon McCarthy when Ivan Rodriguez' base hit scored Placido Polanco.Podsednik's error in left allowed Pudge to advance to 2nd.He was eventually stranded there.

                              In the White Sox 7th,Iguchi doubled scoring Briann Anderson and Podsednik to give the Sox a 4-run cushion at 12-8.They added another on Paul Konerko's single scoring Gooch for a 13-8 margin.

                              But,as it usually is in baseball,no lead is safe.Detroit closed the gap in the 8th inning when Polanco's groundout scored Omar Infante to make it 13-9 White Sox.

                              The Tigers did not go away quietly in the 9th against Matt Thornton,as the Tigers loaded the bases on 3 singles until Curtis Granderson,representing the tying run at the plate was called out looking to end a wild game in Detroit.
