4-18-08: Sox 9 - Rays 2

April 18, 2008 - Tampa Bay, Florida

"It's hard to believe, but apparently the umpires have got Criscione in a run-down."

Javier Vazquez had another strong outing. The test was in the second inning when a run down gone wrong that left the bases loaded with one out. Aside from that, the Sox showed a strong performance.

The second consecutive night with back to back jacks is very promising. The Sox seemed to have shrugged off the tough loss last night in Baltimore.

The good:
Thome and Konerko's back to back home runs.

Another great performance by Javier Vazquez.

The bad:
10 men left on base.

Jermaine Dye has cooled at the plate.

The ugly:
Pablo Ozuna needs to work on his run down technique.

A.J. Pierzynski drew the collar with an 0 for 5 performance.

It's nice to see the Sox back to life after a derailed game in Baltimore. This is a different team to watch this year. I feel confident that the Sox will stay in games until the end. Tampa Bay has a great team this year. It's only a matter of time before they get really hot.

It was a great come back game. Wonder how the Yankees will fair against us next week.

The White Sox have played very well against the Yankees the last few years. Those are usually great games to watch.
