White Sox Complete Sweep in 7-4 Win

Paul Konerko

On a hot and humid afternoon at Fenway, the wrong Sox had all the fun. Boston squandered an early lead and Tim Wakefield and the bullpen could not hold on in the 7-4 loss to Chicago.

Chicago’s Gavin Floyd wasn’t stellar, but his 4 ER in 6 IP was good enough to pick up his sixth win of the season. The real difference maker was Paul Konerko who went 3-4 with a HR and 3 RBI to secure the White Sox win.

Boston jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the 2nd inning with an RBI double by Jed Lowrie (his only hit) and a two-run single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Chicago would score four unanswered runs and take that 4-3 lead after the top of the 6th. In the bottom half of the inning, David Ortiz blasted his 13th HR of the season to tie the game at 4-4.

Boston’s offense would not score again and White Sox 1B Paul Konerko drove in three more runs of his own to give Chicago the win and hand Boston its 4th straight loss.

Game Notes

W: Gavin Floyd (6-5)
L: Matt Albers (1-3)
S: Sergio Santos (9)

  • RP Rich Hill left the game in the 7th inning with an elbow injury. No definitive word on the injury, but it sounds like Hill avoided serious damage. Hill has yet to allow a run in 8.0 IP this season.
