4th Inning from Hell; Edit: 9th Inning from Heaven

BASEBALL

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.

Gah.

EDIT:

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.
