    Jermaine Dye and Paul Konerko Reach 300 Home Run Mark Together

    White Sox Tigers Baseball

    Jermaine Dye and Paul Konerko hit back-to-back home runs in the 2nd inning of the White Sox 10-6 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.  It marked the 300th career home run for each player.  Pretty cool way to reach the 300 home run plateau with your own teammate matching the same feat on consecutive at-bats.

    The White Sox brought out the whipping sticks against the Tigers during their 2009 home opener at Comerica Park.  Dye finished the day going 3 for 5 with 1 RBI and 2 runs scored.  Konerko finished the day going 4 for 5 with 4 RBI’s and 2 runs scored.  Carlos Quentin hit 2 home runs of his own in the 4th and 6th innings and had 4 RBI’s and 3 runs scored.  Every White Sox player who took an at-bat got a hit.

    The White Sox were fortunate to have the big offensive outburst, as starter Gavin Floyd struggled for much of his 5 innings.  Floyd needed 98 to pitch enough innings to qualify for the win.  He gave up 6 earned runs on 5 hits and 7 walks.
