White Sox 9 Royals 8: I'm Going To Need Another Four Days Off
I had so much I wanted to say about this game. So very much. From baserunning decisions to fielding mistakes, to questionable bullpen management.
So much of this game felt like the most 2011 game the White Sox had played this season. But then it just wouldn't end.
The game kept going and going and going, and the longer it went on, the more I forgot to say. By the time this one ended, 5 hours and 23 minutes after it began, I had nothing left.
18 different pitchers.
5 lead changes.
3 blown saves.
1 RBI on a sacrifice fly by Kevin Youkilis in the 14th inning to finally put this one to bed.
And now I'm going to follow suit.
