@ CHICAGO, IL:
While most of Chicagoland watched
on TV as the Blackhawks won their first
Stanley Cup since 1961, the 21,959 who
went to US Cellular Field were rewarded
as they witnessed a 15-3 White Sox rout
of the Tigers.
The White Sox didn't waste very
many chances, banging out 16 hits but
only stranding two runners on base.
Detroit actually had an early 1-0/
T-2nd lead on an impressive opposite
way solo homer by Brennan Boesch (#7) a half dozen rows into the LCField seats.
After Tigers starter Rick Porcello retired the first six Chicago batters, the
WSox tied it 1-all on the first pitch of the B-3rd when Alexei Ramirez homered
(#6) down the LField line.
The White Sox then blew it open with a pair of 7-R innings. A Ramon Castro
3rHR (#2) off Porcello highlighted the 7-R/B-4th. Pinch-hitter Brent Lillibridge
had another 3rHR (#1) off third Detroit pitcher Fu-Te Ni in a 7-R/B-8th.
Porcello allowed 8-R/8-ER on 8-H in his 3.1-IP (L, 4-6). Eddie Bonine pitched
effective long relief until he tired in the B-8th and ended up getting charged with
3-R/3-ER on 5-H & 1-W. Ni was roughed up for 4-R/4-ER on 3-H & 1-W in just 0.2-IP.
Castro went 2-for-4 with 2-R & 4-RBI. Omar Vizquel was 3-for-5 with a double,
2-R & 3-RBI.
Ex-Tiger Freddy Garcia cruised through 7-IP to yield 3-R/3-ER on 7-H & 1-W to
improve his record to 6-3 on the season and 18-6 lifetime against Detroit.
The other two Tiger runs came in the T-6th on a Ryan Raburn sac-fly and via a
Miguel Cabrera solo homerun (#18) to LCField. Cabrera's longball tied him with Toronto's
Jose Bautista for the AL lead and increased Miggy's MLB-leading RBI count to 53.
Boesch went 2-for-3 and Johnny Damon 2-for-4 including a triple and a run scored
as the only Tigers with multiple safeties.
The 15-R were a season-high for the Sox and were the most allowed by Detroit
since giving up 16 on 8/17/2008 at Comerica Park vs Baltimore.
DET 3-8-1, 5-LOB (L) Porcello, 4-6
CWS 15-16-0, 2-LOB (W) Garcia, 6-3
Boesch homered for the second straight game and for the third time in five games.
Porcello allowed a career-worst 8-ER in the second shortest outing of his brief MLB
WSox 2Bman Gordan Beckham's double ended a string of 112 at-bats without an extra
Vizquel passed HoFamer Lou Gehrig on the all-time MLB hit list, moving into 55th place
with 2,723 safeties, two more than the Iron Horse.
Lillibridge had only one previous at-bat in the big leagues this year when he hit his homer.
It was the second career MLB HR for Lillibridge in 78 games over three seasons with Atlanta
and the WSox.
Among 20 players selected Wednesday on the third and final day of the MLB first year
draft were LF Bo McClendon (son of Tiger hitting coach Lloyd McClendon) in the 39th round,
RHP Ricky Knapp (son of Tiger pitching coach Rick Knapp) in the 44th round and RHP Ben
Verlander (brother of Tiger ace Justin Verlander) in the 46th round. Among their 51 selections
Detroit did not take a single player from a Michigan-based high school or college.
The Thursday matinee rubber game of the series sends John Danks (4-5, 3.60) of the
WSox vs Max Scherzer (2-5, 6.66) of the Tigers in the probable pitching match-up.
