Clemens Injured + Crazy Bobby Jenks = Chicago 5, Houston 3
Saturday, October 22, 2005

The ChiSox proved me wrong tonight, scoring five runs rather than my predicted one. Houston, however, apparently did hear my prediction and kept it at three runs.

Houston went down in Chicago tonight, letting the Sox get the best of Clemens. This was actually the first game one World Series start for the Rocket, despite previously being a part of five. Before the game Chicago manager Ozzie Guillen reminded everyone of Clemens age – er – experience¬ – saying “I think my coaching staff has more at-bats against Roger Clemens than my starting line up!”

Ozzie didn’t need to worry about his players, though. Chicago put up three runs in the first two innings, including a huge homer by Dye before Clemens succumbed to a strained hamstring. Houston did tie it up with a solo shot by Lamb in the first followed by Berkman knocking two runs in the next inning. That would do it for Houston, while Chicago pulled ahead in the fourth and tacked on an insurance run in the eighth when Podsednik’s stand up triple allowed Pierzynski to score (still riding high from residual “the ball hit the dirt! I swear!” fame).

The highlight of the game proved to be when Sox closer Jenks was waved in from the bullpen. As soon as Ozzie motioned “big, tall guy” to his pen, I could almost hear the Astros let out a collective groan (yes. My sound system is that good). The Astros didn’t have a chance against Jenks’ sound-barrier-breaking fastballs. I don’t think a single pitch of his dipped below 95mph as he secured the win for his team, using a very conservative fourteen pitches.

Though the Sox won tonight, it’s still anybody’s ring in my opinion. Both teams played well tonight, and who knows what would have happened if Clemens’ hamstring had been feeling up to par? Tomorrow night brings us Pettitte and Buehrle, and Pitching Duel 2005 continues at 7:30 EST….

    As another SoCal Yankee fan who sat at Rookies and agonized as the Angels knocked off our bombers I've enjoyed finding and reading your baseball blog.

    At this point I now know exactly three girls in the world who can speak intelligently about baseball. What does it say that they're all Yanks fans?

    Nice blog, Yankees Chick....

    but I have to disagree with you about the lack of Yankee blogs out there. Take a look at my blogs. Tell me what you think....

    hey metsrtehsux0r - - - agreed, the intelligent female baseball fans are few and far between, and it speaks volumes that we are yankees fans!

    oh, and I love your username.

    Yeah, so why is it all the baseball smart girls I know are Yankee fans? Is there something there I'm not figuring out yet?

    I would say next baseball season we need to find one bar for all the North County Yanks fans to gather at and cheer for the boys. I am curious though. If you put three women who know baseball in the same room would the statistical improbability of that happening cause the world to end? :)

    Thanks for the compliment on the name too. It's really in honor of another baseball fan I know, because he likes the Mets for some reason.

    Bobby Jenks is a crazy redneck, for reals. Great article up today on ESPN Insider. He grew up in a shack, goes nuts when he drinks, can't spell. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but dude can sure throw 100mph.
