So I guess it’s okay to be a White Sox fan again? Phil Humber took a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the New York Yankees… that’s gotta be a good thing. And our offense played some good “Get ’em on, get ’em over, get ’em in” baseball… so that’s gotta be a good thing. And that bullpen! Best outing of the year from those guys… so that’s gotta be a good thing.
Maybe everything is okay?
Seriously, great job tonight by Phil Humber. This kid has come out and proven that he can be a big league pitcher and frankly we needed that tonight. The Yankees are the epitome of a professional ballclub and Humber mowed through them like something that mows through professional ballclubs.
Alex Rios finally busted his 0-for-21 slump with a single in… whatever inning that was. It was awesome, during the first inning they showed Adam Dunn kneeling on the top step of the dugout and he had a huge smile on his face. My sister looked at him and said “He seems awfully chipper for a big fat loser.” Then he drives in the Sox’s first run since the seventh inning of that Friday night game back in 1997. (It felt like that, anyway.)
As I mentioned before, huge appearances out of the bullpen by Chris Sale and Sergio Santos. They’ll both get three points for their clutch performances.
