It Took 16 Inning but FINALLY A Win

a-addison-reed-1A rather large sigh of relief, in 16 inning the White Sox have finally gotten a well deserved win.

I didn’t get up for the original game due to the hour and needing some extra sleep but what I found when I woke up I was just stunned to say the least. It has been so long and there was so much frustration amongst fans and the players.

The 12 extra innings run that were scored by both teams combined has tied an American League record for most extra inning runs scored in a game.

There was NO SCORE through 13 innings. Then things started to unfold…
