Top of first – Jose Quintana is todays pitcher. Mariners got a homer to right to take a one to nothing lead. In the bottom its Alejandro De Aza, Jeff Keppinger, Alex Rios (Single – reach on an error), Adam Dunn, Rios just stole second. One duck left on the pond so it’s on to the second.
Third Inning – Stolen base, runner now at second. With a walk has runners on first and second.Got out of that jam and the score is still 1 – 0. Tyler Flowers at the plate, Gordon Beckham rounds at the batting order first time through and its back to the top with De Aza. De Aza tried a bunt but the third baseman managed to throw him out. Off to the fourth.
Fourth Inning – Duck on the pond thanks to a walk. Houston Astros are the first team to move from the National League to the American League. A pick off of the baserunner closes out the top of the fourth. First duck for the White sox’s Adam Dunn with a two out single, holy crap—–DUNN just stole second base!!!!! WE got ourselves a ball game kids, Paulie with a single, gets Adam all the way home. It’s a ONE ALL ballgame. One run with two hits and a duck left on the pond to tie the game. heading to the fifth.
Fifth Inning – Quintana error caused ducks at the corners. That error just cost the Sox so it’s a 2 – 1 lead for the Mariners. This is a bloody nightmare, TWO more runs have scored so it’s a 4 to 1 lead now to Seattle. Quintana needs to hit the shower, Come on gang, that was a RBI triple to the corner making it 5 to 1, make that 6 – 1. COME ON COACH VENTURA , PULL QUINTANA! Nobody out, Matt Lindstrom is warming up. FINALLY here come Coach Ventura and Quintana is finished. Come on Matt, end this nightmare. FINALLY, double play (6,4,3) Thank god, that mess is finally over, lets see if the boys can get their crap back together and get some runs back.
