What is it with the Red Sox vs the White Sox?
In the last 13 meetings between these two - the White Sox have come out on top 11 times!
On Monday, Chicago beat Boston 7-3.
Jon Lester was riding a seven-game winning streak. He gave up 7 runs,
8 hits, 4 walks and struck out 4 in 5 2-3 innings.
To make things worse, the guy who I despise more than anyone in baseball, A.J. Pierzynski, racked-up 2 RBIs.
Taking my mind to a happier place...
Tonight: White Sox vs Red Sox at 7:10 PM from Fenway.
The Tigers enjoyed a better result - but not without controversy.
Detroit beat the woeful Minnesota Twins on a spectator interference call in the bottom of the 8th inning.
The Baby-Faced Assassin and V-Mart hit homers. Martinez' two-run dinger tied the game 5-5 in the 6th inning.
In the bottom of the 8th, Alex Avila hit a ball that went down the left-field line, a couple fans along the fence reached over to snag it, then it bounced off another fan in the stands - the umps ruled fan interference - and Jhonny Peralta was allowed to score from first on the play.
That gave the Tigers a 6-5 win.
Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire was ejected after arguing the play...
The Twins, always a classy organization, had a No. 3 jersey hanging in their dugout in memory of Harmon Killebrew...
