      The White Sox out-homered the
Tigers 3-2 Friday night, added in a
couple of key triples, and Chicago
topped Detroit 8-4 in the opener of
a 3-game weekend series.
      Starters Mark Buehrle (W, 11-9) and Jeremy Bonderman (L, 6-8) earned
the decisions.   
      After four and a half scoreless innings a pair of singles greeted Bonderman
to start the B-5th and both runners moved up on a sac bunt. Mark Kotsay
brought in lead runner Mark Teahen on a fielder's choice grounder where
everybody was safe after Bonderman fell to the ground to bearhand the ball,
but fire late to the plate while still sitting. Gordon Beckmam followed with a
3trHR (#7) to RField for a 4-0 Sox lead.
      Hustle by Jhonny Peralta produced two Tiger runs in the T-6th. With runners
at the corners and 2-out, Peralta beat a 6-4 forceout attempt at 2Base to
score Austin Jackson from third and give Miguel Cabrera an INF-RBI-1B. Carlos
Guillen then singled to short RField to plate hard-charging Peralta and make it 4-2.
      The WSox got those two tallies back immediately in the B-6th. Paul Konerko
drew a 1-out walk and Teahen, in his first game back from injury rehab, blasted
a 2rHR (#4) 418-feet deep into the RCField seats for a 6-2 margin.
      Buehrle's 100th pitch of the game was clubbed for a Ryan Raburn solo homerun
(#5) to LField to put the count at 6-3/1-out/T-7th.
     After Raburn's longbsall, Sergio Santos relieved Buehrle and Gerald Laird beat
out a bunt single, then the rains came down and the tarp came out. After an hour
and 22-min rain delay play resumed.
      The WSox began their half of the 7th-INN with back-to-back triples off Detroit
bullpenner Eddie Bonine as Beckham and Juan Pierre combined to give the home
team a 7-3 bulge. Bonine escaped the situation without further damage to stand
Pierre at third.   
      Brandon Inge sent a 2-out/T-8th solo shot (#7) to straightaway CField off third
Chicago pitcher Matt Thornton for a 7-4 score.
      Alexei Ramirez led-off the B-8th with a solo blow (#12) to the LField stands off
Bonine for an 8-4 lead.   
      J.J. Putz closed for the ChiSox in a non-save T-9th.
      Beckham was 2-for-4 with 2-R & 3-RBI for the WSox and Raburn was 3-for-4 with
a 2B, HR, R & RBI for the Tigers.
      The second place White Sox remsained a game behind AL-Central leading
Minnesota. The third place Tigers (55-60) dropped to 10.5 games back of the

      DET         4-8-0, 7-LOB          (L) Bonderman, 6-8
      CWS       8-10-1, 4-LOB       (W) Buehrle, 11-9


TIGERS MGR JIM LEYLAND:    "Bondo, other than two pitches, pitched really good. But the
two pitches that went out of the ballpark were just really bad pitches. And they jumped
on them, which they should've."

TIGERS SP JEREMY BONDERMAN:    ""If I don't make the two [homerun] pitches I made, we
win that game...We're just not putting together nine innings. It's offense, defense, pitching.
Shoot, it's my fault tonight."

WSOX MGR OZZIE GUILEN:    "We had a couple of home runs. Meanwhile, we got good at-bats
especially late in the game after the rain delay. We came out and scored a couple more runs."


      Cabrera's RBI was his first run driven in since AUG 1ST and his first bsasehit
ever off Buehrle.
      Inge's homer was his first since May 30th and just the second surrendered by
Thornton this year (the other vs Detroit's Brennan Boesch).   
      Saturday night's probable pitchers are Edwin Jackson (7-10, 4.83) of Chicago
and Rick Porcello (5-10, 5.74) for Detroit.
