White Sox 1 Brewers 0: Kevin Youkilis Inspires The White Sox To Retake First Place
I stopped watching the Sox game in the third inning because I wanted to watch Italy and England in the Euro quarterfinals because I hate America and I'm a no good Communist or something. Italy eventually beat England by beating them on penalty kicks after neither team could manage to score over 120 minutes.
After the soccer game ended I resumed watching the White Sox and Brewers relive the soccer match.
Of course, the biggest news to come from the south side on Sunday was the trade for Kevin Youkilis, but I'll get to that later in another post. For now let's just say that the Sox scored no runs in 9 innings before trading for Youkilis on Sunday and scored 1 run in an inning after trading for Youkilis.
Oh, and Cleveland lost, so we're back in first place.
ALL HAIL THE POWER OF THE GREEK GOD OF WALKS.
The real star of the game today for the Sox was, once again, Jose Quintana. After throwing 8 scoreless innings against the Dodgers last Sunday, Quintana threw another 8 scoreless innings today. Of course, like last week, Quintana didn't get a win to show for it as the Sox needed 10 innings to finally bring home a run on Eduardo Escobar's single.
So, all in all, a pretty good day. The Sox win to get back in first place and they possibly get a solution at third base without giving up much of anything.
