6-7-08: Twins 2 - Sox 11

June 7, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

Double digits and a triple.

Eight long years. That is how long it has been since Paul Konerko's last triple. The improbable event even upstaged the second consecutive night that Joe Crede had two home runs. This time it was a pair of three run homers. I have no clue as to where this offense is coming from, but I like it. Greg Walker has been saying that the Sox are ready to break out offensively. I guess he wasn't joking.

Almost lost, due to the offense, was Mark Buehrle's magnificent pitching display. Mark went eight innings and only gave up one run. It appears that the real Mark Beuhrle has decided to show up to games this season. Although, to be fair, he has been much better than his 3-6 record would indicate.

The good:
Every starter had a hit except for Carlos Quentin.

Classic Mark Buehrle showed up to the park.

The bad:
Almost anyone else, except for Thome, may have stretched that Konerko triple into an inside the parker.

Orlando Cabrera grounded into two double plays.

The ugly:
Carlos Quentin was 0 for 5.

The Sox only scored their eleven runs in three innings.

Is this a sign of things to come? I sure hope so. After weeks of an anemic offense, it great to see the Sox break out and have a couple of games like this.
