Go Figure…

    After dropping two of three in Texas, three of four in Toronto and looking like a team playing itself out of the divisional race, facing a sizzling Red Sox team at Fenway Park seemed to be the last thing the White Sox needed.
    But baseball is baseball and there’s no explaining some things–like the South Siders’ 7-3 victory over Boston last night where they clocked Red Sox ace Jon Lester for all seven runs. Even more puzzling might be that the Chicagoans have now defeated the Red Sox for the fifth straight time on the road and have won 11 of the last 13 overall against them.
    “It was a big win for the boys,” said the rejuvenated Jake Peavy, who headlined the list of heroes, getting his second victory of the season by going seven innings, allowing three runs, six hits without allowing a walk. A big win indeed after the Toronto debacle as the Sox inched to 8 1/2 games behind the first place Indians.
    Joining Peavy on the highlight reel were Alexei Ramirez (a single, double and two RBIs), A.J. Pierzynski (two singles and two RBIs), Paul Konerko (a homer, his 11th, and a single) and Carlos Quentin (a single and two RBIs).
    What it proved, at least for one night, that the Pale Hose can still get a clutch hit or two or three.
Sox Note of Note: For those of you who missed it, the Sox reached down to Charlotte for some bullpen help, recalling major league vet Brian Bruney and Jeff Marquez, the former Yankee farmhand who is still trying to somewhat justify the Nick Swisher trade. In corresponding moves, Dallas McPherson was designated for assignment and Lucas Harrell, brought up over the weekend to replace the DL’d Tony Pena, was returned to the Knights.

    I still cant get over Peavy pitching so well when I thought he wouldn’t pitch at all this year. And you are right about Ozzie in your last post, he always blames someone else when the losing starts

    They’re saying more moves (or at least one) on Friday for the Tigers’ series.

    Marquez or Bruney will return to AAA. But who comes up?

    Teahen or Viciedo?

    Williams suggested changes around the first of June.
