Orioles 4 White Sox 3: The Ghosts Of Baseball Past Haunt The White Sox
Well, it's not like the win streak was going to last forever, and if there was ever a time for it to end than it was during a game in Baltimore with a guy named Chen on the mound.
Sadly it wasn't Chen that was the problem as much as it was the bullpen and the Sox pitching staff. Another game in which White Sox pitching allowed at least 7 walks, but this time they couldn't get around them.
Oh, and then there were the homers by the Ghosts of Baseball Past.
Lew Ford, who hadn't been in the Majors since 2007 hit his first home run in five years to start the scoring, and then Nate McLouth -- who hasn't even been an above average player since 2009 hit the two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth that would prove to be the game-winner.
At least, that's what I saw while looking up from my fantasy draft.
Don't worry, it's my last draft of the season so the only thing that will be distracting me from Sox games the rest of the time will be the day job. And you can't bitch at me about that.
