4-27-08: Orioles 1 - White Sox 6

April 27, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

Konerko's deuces are wild!

It's not often you look at the box score and see 2 next to almost every category on a player. That happened with Konerko on Sunday. 2 at-bats, 2 runs, 2 hits, 2 RBIs, 2 walks, 2 home runs. Paulie had a hell of a game and provided the Sox with all the offense they would need.

Jose Contreras pitched another great game. This time it was enough for a win. Before the game, Mike MacDougal was sent down to AAA and Ehren Wassermann was called up. Ehren came into the game to face one batter and walked him. No damage done. The pitches that were called strikes down at the AAA level, were not called in Wassermann's favor at the major league level.

The good:
Paul Konerko's 2 home runs.

Jose Contreras' pitching.

The bad:
Ehren Wassermann walked the only batter he saw.

Alexei Ramirez was 0 for 3, but managed an RBI.

The ugly:
8 men left on base.

Pablo Ozuna was 0 for 4.

This is the type of game that the White Sox needed, a fairly easy victory. The Orioles are tough this year. If the Sox can split the four game series, it will be a good series. The Orioles are pesky enough to warrant that. The Sox are in position to win 3 out of 4 games, if they win on Monday. That would be great, if that happens. There's a reason why the O's are 14-11 after this game. They are that good this year. They should be battling for the top spot this year.
