Daily White Sox Review

April 5: White Sox 5, Detroit 3

The Good: Gavin Floyd tossed 6 innings and allowed just three runs, two coming off a mistake to Brandon Inge. The White Sox showed good patience at the plate, working eight walks to combine with only three hits. The bullpen again looked great, as Boone Logan, Linebrink, and Jenks all worked scoreless innings. Perhaps most importantly, Carlos Quentin looked great both at the plate and in the field. Its going to be hard for Ozzie to get him out of the lineup when Jerry Owens comes back.

The Bad: Not much, except the Sox only had three hits. Inge, the Tigers’ ninth place hitter, had all three Tiger RBIs, so you would hope that the 9-hitter wouldn’t kill you. But thats really searching for bad; the Sox did a good job on the rest of the powerful Tiger lineup.

Final thought: I’m thrilled with the last three games, especially the bullpen work in the last two against Detroit. However, the Tigers are reeking of a team that is pressing right now. Plus, with Granderson and Sheffield out of the lineup and Cabrera banged up, I have a good feeling that while Tiger fans might be freaking out right now, this team will be fine soon.
