ALDS Game 2


Game 1 went to the Rays, thanks to Evan “Almighty” Longoria and his 3 RBI. James Shields pitched a solid 6+ innings, though he left the bases loaded with one out as he departed. Add in a little of Rays’ “small ball” and the boys were able to manufacture just enough.

Good thing Grant Balfour, and his superior Australian Athletic ability prevailed, as he struck out Uribe and Cabrera. Some testosterone laced competitive spirit erupted as Cabrera called out our favorite Aussie, kicking dirt in his direction? Balfour reacted with an expletive filled explosion. He brought the heat too, hitting 96 MPH on the gun… utterly devastating White Sox hitters.

So here we are on late Friday afternoon. Its Game 2 at 6 PM. Scott Kazmir faces traditional Chi Sox ace Mark Buehrle. Kaz has been struggling as of late, giving up 4 solo shots to the Tigers in his last start, and giving up 9 runs to Boston a few starts back. We need 6 innings from him. We need some K’s. And we need a win.

Are the Chi Sox feeling the heat yet?
