Game 28 Overflow Thread: White Sox vs. Royals Play More Baseball

Ed Zurga

We've had Getz with a mistake, Frenchy making a great defensive play and a stupid defensive play, a wasted gem by James Shields, a controversial home run call, Chicago baserunning gaffes, and a Holland meltdown. Can you take a few more innings of this?

Just to recap:

  • Royals scored a first inning run on a Billy Butler double
  • James Shields was awesome - 8 IP 2 H 0 R 2 BB 9 K. Ned pulled him after eight innings and 102 pitches. The right call?
  • Greg Holland was getting squeezed in the ninth, but still gave up three hits. It looked like we might get out of it when Paul Konerko tapped into a double play, but a walk and a bobble by Chris Getz allowed a run to score to tie it.
  • The White Sox are bloody awful on the basepaths.
  • Shields actually had a no-no going til the sixth when Jeff Francoeur allowed a catchable ball to fall harmlessly to the ground.
  • Frenchy also had an awesome throw to nail a runner (remember what I said about Chicago being bloody awful on the basepaths?)
  • Hawk Harrelson is having a conniption
MOAR BASEBALL PLZ!
