White Sox Mon Apr 13 2009

Twin Killing

The White Sox bats came alive this weekend to take the series against their rivals the Twins and win their first series of the season. However the series didn't start off favorable for the Southsiders. Former fan favorite Joe Crede made his return to the South Side. Like Most athletes who leave and come back with another team they usually give management a reminder of what they let go. Crede did just that.

He would take the third pitch he saw from Jose Contreras into the Sox bullpen in left field. They would go on to lose 12-5. Saturday and Sunday were a completely different story. The Sox would roll to an 8-0 victory on Saturday.

Bartolo Colon pitched six strong innings. Colon, if healthy, will provide an anchor at the back end of the Sox rotation. Having a healthy Colon will be a huge plus for the Sox. Sunday the Southsiders got a much better performance from ace Mark Buehrle who went six and two-third innings. He would strike out five and only give up one earned run.

They won 6-1.
Jermaine Dye clubbed his first home run of the season. Dye sits at 299 career home runs. They climbed back to .500 with their win they now sit at 3-3.

The Sox take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park starting today.
