White Bloody Red 14-2

While those with tickets to game 1 lamented the fact that it coincided with Rosh Hashanah, Chicagoist very much appreciated that the day off afforded us a chance to watch the game on TV between High Holiday services and Mom's matzo ball soup. The only complaint was that she insisted on serving the soup in the 7th inning because "the game's over anyway!" That may have been the case given that the White Sox were already up 12-2, but still...

Really, the game was over by the end of the first inning as the White Sox jumped all over Matt Clement for 5 runs, including three on a home run by A.J. Pierzynski. Paul Konerko knocked one out in the third and Juan Uribe drove in two more with a long ball in the bottom of the 4th to counter Boston's two in the top of the frame. Scott Podsednik hit his first home run in a Sox uniform in the 6th inning to drive in 3 of the 4 runs they added that inning. Pierzynski homered again in the 8th and Willie Harris drove in yet another insurance run.

Meanwhile, Jose Contreras pitched much like he has since the All Star Break, going 7.2 innings and allowing just the two runs. He scattered 8 hits and walked none while striking out 6. The Sox bullpen allowed just a lone hit in 1.1 innings of work.

Game two is this evening with a 6:00pm first pitch. Mark Buehrle faces off against David Wells. If yesterday's game was any indication of how this series will progress, it's just about time for Legal Seafood to be packing up that chowder.
