    Juan Uribe went deep twice this afternoon to help propel the Chicago White Sox to a 7-3 win to complete a 3-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins at US Cellular Field this afternoon.

    The win now extends the White Sox current winning streak to 8 games,and 12 of the last 13 games.

    After the Twins jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the 1st inning off starter Jose Contreras,the Sox tied it up in the 3rd inning against Twins starter Carlos Silva.Scott Podsednik led off with a double,then went to 3rd on Tadahito Iguchi's single,then Pods came home on Jim Thome's sac fly to tie the game at 1.

    The Sox took the lead for good in the 4th inning on back-to-back homers from Joe Crede and Juan Uribe to make it 3-1.

    After Joe Mauer homered in the 6th to bring Minnesota to within 1 at 3-2,the Sox exploded for 4 runs in the bottom of the frame.Highlighted by back-to-back blasts by Uribe,who hit a 3-run shot,and Brian Anderson,his 1st of the season,making it a 7-2 game.

    The Twins added a single tally in the 9th inning off Cliff Politte.

    SWEEP DREAMS; This was the 1st White Sox sweep of the Twins at home since June 30-July 2,2003.

    The Sox hit back-to-back homers today was the 1st time that they have done this since June 11,2000 when Frank Thomas and Magglio Ordonez followed by Ray Durham and Jose Valentin did it aginst the Chicago Cubs.

    Jim Thome failed to reach base today,going 0-4 and snappping his Major League record 17 games at the outset of the season scoring a run.Thome had an RBI sac fly and hit the ball hard every time.

    Jose Contreras went 8 innings for his 3rd win of the season,extending his personal winning streak to 11 regular season games dating back to August 21,2005.Contreras gave up 2 runs on 6 hits,walking 3 and striking out 2.

    Uribe and Anderson combined for 5 hits from the bottom of the lineup this afternoon.Both were coming into today's action hitting below .200 on the year.

    The Sox have now won 10 straight against AL Central opponents this year.

    White Sox record;13-5,1st place, 2 games ahead of Detroit

    April 22- White Sox 9,Twins 2

    Jermaine Dye and AJ Pierzynski each had 3 hits apiece as they helped lead the White Sox to thier 11th win in thier last 12 games with a 9-2 pounding of the Minnesota Twins at US Cellular Field tonight.

    Dye got things going in the 1st inning when he belted a 3-run homer off Brad Radke(2-2) and the Sox never looked back.

    Tadahito Iguchi made it 4-0 in the 2nd when he doubled to score Rob Mackowiak.

    The Twins finally got on the board in the 5th when after Lew ford singled,stole 2nd,and stole 3rd,Luis Rodriguez grounded out,scoring Ford to make it a 4-1 Sox lead.

    Dye struck again in the Sox half of the 5th when he doubbled to left,scoring Jim Thome to make it 5-1.Then afer AJ Pierzynski walked to load the bases,Joe Crede grounds out to the shortstop scoring Paul Konerko to make it 6-1.

    Torii Hunter homered in the 6th inning to make it 6-2 Sox.

    The Sox scored 1 in the 7th on Crede's RBI single scoring Dye to make it 7-2.

    But Jim Thome would save the best for last in the White Sox 8th when he smoked an 0-1 offering from Twins reliever Jesse Crain deep into the right field seats for a 2-run bomb,his 9th of the season,making it a 9-2 game.

    White Sox starter Freddy Garcia went 6 2/3 innings,running out of gas in the 7th.In that inning,the Twins loaded the bases on 3 Sox pitchers(Garcia,Boone Logan,and Brandon McCarthy) before McCarthy got torii hunter to fly out to end the inning.

    Bobby Jenks pitched the 9th inning,giving up a hit,and striking out tony Batista to end it.

    TWIN KILLINGS; Jim Thome scored in his 17th consecutive game to start the season,a Major League record.Thome also tied the White Sox record for most homers in the month of April with his 9th of the season.Only Frank Thomas in 1996 hit 9 homers in April.

    Thome also walked twice,extending his ML lead to 20 this season.

    Freddy Garcia picked up his 102nd ML victory,tying former Sox hurler Wilson Alvarez for most career wins by a Venezuelan native.

    Jermaine Dye has 9 hits in his last 15 at-bats with runners in scoring position.

    April 21- White Sox 7,Twins 1


    Mark Buehrle struck out six Twins, giving up one run in eight innings. (Jeff Roberson/AP Photo)

    In a pitching matchup that was as good as advertised,Mark Buehrle went toe to toe against Minnesota superstud Johan Santana and didn't flinch.But it was Jim Thome who provided the margin with his 8th homer of the year as the Sox took the opening game of a 3-game set against Central Division rival Minnesota by a 7-1 margin.

    Buehrle went 8 innings,giving up a run on 4 hits,walking 1 and striking out 6 Twins to raise his record to 3-0 on the season while throwing 102 pitches.

    Santana went 7 innings,giving up Jim Thome's 2-run homer in the 6th inning,spoiling an otherwise equally masterful pitching performance from him.Santana gave up 5 hits,a walk and struck out 6 while throwing 120 pitches.

    After Thome went yard in the bottom of the 6th,Minnesota came within 1 when Lew Ford hit a rocket into the left field seats off Buehrle in the 8th inning.

    But the Sox would explode offensively in the bottom of the 8th against another Sox nemisis,Juan Rincon.

    After Thome and Paul Konerko singled to lead off the bottom of the 8th,Jermaine Dye doubled to score Pablo Ozuna(pinch-running for Thome).Konerko and Dye would come around to score after SS Juan Castro air-mailed the relay throw from Torii Hunter into the White Sox dugout to make it a 5-1 lead.

    Brian Anderson would drive in a run with a sac fly later in the inning,and Scott Podsednik would double home AJ Pierzynski to make it 7-1.

    Neal Cotts pitched the 9th and gave up a hit and a walk,but that was about it.

    Yeah, but it does seem wierd to see arguably the best division in the game with no-one above .500. It will change, though. I'm just hoping the A's slump even worse this year than last and keep them out of the playoffs.

    Anyone who plays the A's or Indians and beats them is our friend.:gt :gt
    Yea, Baltimore and Detroit.

    10-5, 1 GAME UP ON CLEVELAND!!!
    Sole possession is ours. Now, to dethrone the Carmines (another Hawk reference) on top of the A.L., and gotta get rid of a New York team and that team we swept in October (besides those pesky Carmines) from the overall lead.

    On a similar note, can you believe the AL West doesn't have ANY team even playing .500 as I speak?

    April 19- White Sox 4,Royals 0

    Vazquez Flirts With History


    Javier Vazquez was perfect through four innings on Wednesday. (Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)

    Javier Vazquez pitched perhaps the best game of his career this afternoon as he took a no-hitter into the 7th inning as the White Sox completed a 3-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals with a 4-0 win at US Cellular Field.The Sox have now won 9 of thier last 10 ballgames after a 1-4 start.

    Vazquez(1-1) retired the first 12 Royals he faced until he walked the leadoff batter in the 5th.

    Doug Mientewicz got an excuse me dribbler down the 3rd base line to break up the no-no with 1 out in the 7th inning.Vazquez gave up a leadoff single to Esteban German in the 9th inning before being relieved by Neal Cotts.Vazquez left to a thunderous standing ovation.

    Cotts was ineffective in 1/3 inning before giving way to Bobby Jenks,who picked up his 6th save of the season.

    Ofensively for the Sox,they got on the board in the 1st inning when Alex Cintron scored on a wild pitch from Royals starter Scott Elarton.

    They made it 2-0 the traditional way-a line shot home run by Juan Uribe in the 5th.Scott Podsednik then doubled,1 out later,Jim Thome was walked intentionally.Paul Konerko singled to load the bases.Then Jermaine Dye was hit by a pitch scoring Podsednik.

    After Elarton was pulled in favor of Luke Hudson,Thome scored on a passed ball with AJ Pierzynski at-bat to make it 4-0 White Sox.

    Vazquez went 8 innings,giving up 2 hits,walking 1 and striking out 7.Neal Cotts scuffled in his appearance,going 1/3 inning and giving up a hit.

    Jim Thome scored a run for the 15th consecutive game,eclipsing Frank Thomas' 1994 record of 14 games to start the season.Thome walked for the 17th and 18th time today.

    April 18- White Sox 4,Royals 1

    Jon Garland had his best outing of the season Tuesday night as the White Sox handed the visiting Kansas City royals thier 8th consecutive loss with a 4-1 win at US Cellular Field.

    Garland went 6 1/3 innings,allowng a run on 6 hits.He stayed away from the sinker for most of the night.It was the pitch that had been giving him trouble all season.

    Brandon McCarthy and Bobby Jenks pitched shutout ball the rest of the way.

    The Sox scored 3 in the 4th inning on an RBI single by Joe Crede,and a 2-run songle by Juan Uribe.They added thier 4th run in the 7th on Jim Thome's single.

    Mark Teahen's solo homer in the 3rd accounted for KC's only run of the game.

    April 17- White Sox 9,Royals 0

    Jose Contreras wasw spectacular in his start,and the offense fired on Royals pitchi9ng early and often as the Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals 9-0 at US Cellular Field this evening.

    The real story of this game was starter Jose Contreras.He went 7 innings,facing only 22 batters,and giving up only 1 hit while striking out 6 batters in 101 pitches.

    As for the offense,they began firing on old Sox nemesis Joe Mays in the 1st inning.With 1 out,Tadahito Iguchi singled to right,then went to 2nd on a wild pitch.Jim Thome walked.Then the next batter Paul Konerko drove a 3-1 pitch deep into the left field seats for a 3-0 Sox lead.

    Later in the inning,with AJ Pierzynski on 1st,Joe Crede belted a Mays offering into the 1st row of the leaft field seats for a 5-0 lead.

    The Sox added 2 more in the 5th on an RBI single by Jim Thome,scoring Scott Podsednik,and an RBI double by Konerko,scoring Iguchi to make it 7-0.

    Podsednik singled home Juan Uribe in the 6th and Pablo Ozuna singled home Ross Gload in the 7th to make it 9-0.

    Boone Logan worked a perfect 8th inning,and Cliff Politte worked a perfect 9th.

    Paul Konerko continues his torrid hitting as he went 2-3 with a homer and 4 RBIs and raising his batting average to a blistering .380 on the young season.

    Jose Contreras now lowers his ERA to 1.29 after his stellar outing this evening.

    Cliff Poliite,after a rough outing last Friday night against Toronto,only needed 4 pitches to shut down the Royals in the 9th inning.

    6-1 after the 1-4 start. I know it's early in the year, but if we win and the Tribe lose, we would have the breaker with the Tiger's for 1st, since we lose the breaker with the Indians.

    We missed you, 1st place. Good to be back home.

    April 16- White Sox 6,Blue Jays 4 (5 innings-rain)

    In a rain shortened game this afternoon,the White Sox blasted off to a 6-0 lead until the Blue Jays came back with 4 runs in the top of the 5th against an ineffective Freddy Garcia in a monsoon.The game was called after 4 1/2 innings because of heavy rains in Chicago.

    The Sox jumped out to a 3-0 lead on an RBI single by Tadahito Iguchi,and a 2-run homer from Jermaine Dye.They added 2 more in the 2nd on Jim Thome's 7th blast of the year,a 2-run shot with Podsednik aboard.

    They made it 6-0 in the 4tyh when Paul Konerko scored Thome from 1st with a double into the left field corner.Jays' C Bengie molina couldn't hold on to the ball in what would have been a very close play at the plate.

    The Jays came back in the top of the 5th when Garcia walked 4 batters in the inning.

    With the bases juiced,Russ Adams singled scoring Eric Hinske to make it 6-1.Then the merry-go-round continued as Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay walked respectively to make it 6-3.Bengie Molina made it 6-4 when he reacehed on a Tadahito Iguchi error.

    WET N' WILD;Scott Podsednik was back in the lineup and he went 2-3 in the game with 2 runs scored.He now has a .122 batting average.

    Jim Thome has reached base and scored in all 12 games played so far this season.His 7 home runs equals his entire 2005 home run total.

    Freddy Garcia walked 6 batters in the game,hitting 90 on the radar gun just once.He threw 106 pitches in his 5 inning stint.

    The rain delay also featured the traditional Mark Buehrle tarp dive. Buehrle tried to hit the field on the first delay, but was waved off with the tarp coming off. But Buehrle followed his routine during the second delay, with lightning cracking in the background.

    White Sox record;7-5,tied for 1st place with Cleveland and Detroit,1 game ahead of Minnesota
