The White Sox did everything they could to hand the game to the Red Sox. They walked players left and right, they ran through pitchers like tissues and the Red Sox STILL couldn’t put together a rally.
Finally they beat an infielder pitching. And Leury Garcia got the first two batters out! At this point, a win is a win. And the Giants and A’s had interesting nights too!
Time to update the Dodged Bullet – Teeth Grinder Tally.
