Buehrle Throws Good Game But Gets No Decision

Mark Buehrle pitched a good game but ended up with a no decision as the White Sox got their win late against Colorado. Buehrle pitched seven innings, giving up two runs on seven hits. The two runs were yielded on home runs to Jason Giambi and Ty Wigginton.

Before scoring the winning run in the ninth, the Sox tallied two runs of their own in the fourth inning. Juan Pierre led off the inning with a walk. One out later he advanced to second after Carlos Quentin was hit by a pitch. Paul Konerko hit an RBI single to score Pierre, and A.J. Pierzynski doubled shortly later to score Quentin.

But until the ninth inning, that was all the Sox could get. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched well, throwing seven innings, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four. But in the ninth inning they would finally come through. Carlos Quentin and Paul Konerko hit back-to-back singles to start the inning. Alexei Ramirez struck out, but A.J. Pierzynski to shallow center which scored Carlos Quentin for the win.

The two teams will play the rubber game of the series on Thursday afternoon. First pitch is at 2:10 P.M., CDT.
