I think that says it all. Right? Right.
The Orioles scored two runs whilst I was at work transcribing documents. Between the time it took me to go home, including picking up my brother, the White Sox scored two runs, as well. It remained like that for a while, but then things happened that I guess I can describe as ‘good.’ Three runs scored in the 5th inning – two of them on an Adam Jones homer – and the Orioles had a 5-2 lead. The White Sox pushed a run across in the 8th, keeping things close at 5-3.
Then we get to the 9th inning, where the exciting things happened…at least for the White Sox. They actually loaded the bases with two outs. To be fair, Jim Johnson really loaded the bases with two outs by hitting Paul Konerko on the hand. Somehow, he managed to get a strikeout – albeit one where the ball got away and Paulino had to run and grab it to tag the batter out – and the game was over.
I really don’t know how we win these, in all seriousness.
