Aww yeah. Charlie Furbush gave up two runs in the first inning. Jake “Dirt Bag” Peavy was staked to an early lead to work with. Sure, it would have been nice if Dirt Bag could have gotten like, oh 10 runs before he threw a pitch, but I won’t get greedy. Those early runs came on some of that old-fashioned getting guys on, pass balls, steals and an actual HIT by one of the perpetual dogs on the team, Alex Rios to score the runs, as well as a solid base hit by the Cuban Missile, Alexei Ramirez.
Seattle made a tiny comeback in the second inning when Miguel Olivo hit a solo home run. Jake, Jake, JAKE! Why must you do this to us? You yourself have said in the past you haven’t done enough pitching when your team doesn’t score enough runs. You also went on to say some
stupid stuff with regard to your teammates scoring, but I’ll pass on that for now. One of them got your off the hook. The game was tied up in the fourth inning when Trayvon Robinson drove in Kyle Seager after he doubled to lead off the inning.
Somehow, Dirt Bag managed to stay in the game without the typical “meltdown” we have started to become accustomed to. His having a meltdown after 75 pitches or the fourth inning, whichever came first. Dirt Bag did last for six innings with 108 pitches, 72 for strikes. I still don’t trust him, but he *is* making progress in not making me want to punch him when he hits his meltdown point.
Home town kid, Brent Lillibridge, made the friends and family who came to see him proud. He hit a two-run home run that put the Sox ahead 4-2 in the fifth inning. I can only imagine how good he felt about doing that. While it was cool for L’il Bridge, there were the typical giving away outs in the game.
Chris Sale came in for the ninth to nail things down. He got two strikeouts in the process and is looking mighty good. Final score in the game 4-2 in favor of the White Sox. The White Sox still are toying with us. Still looking at a number of seven. However, the E number is now standing at 26. Oh the joys of scoreboard watching
