I think I won’t be in the mood to write at home. The Sox scored five in the fourth. Carlos Guillen bobbled a sure double play ball. He got the ball to first in time for an out.
The runner was ruled safe.
Cabrera and Avila turned a 3-2-3 double play that would have limited the damage except Pierre ran on the grass to interfere with the return throw and got away with it.
Penny then served up a curve that Ramirez put in the Pavillion.
When I left off I was so frustrated with the game that I was blogging from my seat rather than watching it.
Penny allowed two more home runs in the fifth to make it 8-1.
Then the Tigers started chipping away. Meanwhile Pauley and Marte allowed no runs in four innings.
There was a rain delay in the bottom of the eighth. After the delay a Peralta single made the score 8-6
In the bottom of the ninth with one out Jackson tripled. Raburn hit a two-run home run to tie the game. With two-outs Cabrera hit the first pitch out for a walk off win. When we got to the car the local radio was replaying Dickerson’s calls. I hope he is OK. (Great, excited calls!)
Ironically theThis Week in Baseball episode that played at Comerica Park before the game featured Santos and described him as a virtually unhittable closer. This is prime jinx material.
The White Sox are now 7.5 games out in September.
