The War has Moved to Enemy Territory
It is day 3 in the war and the battlefield has changed, the Sox are in enemy terrority at Wrigley Field and Anthony Ranaduo has been tossed the office keys. Chris Sale will return tomorrow to face John Lackey in the closer of this war. Cubs fans have been thick and very loud but last night was unusually quiet, especially with the shut out. Only time will tell about tonight.
Brett Lawrie has been moved to the D.L. Carlos Sanchez has been called up from Charlotte.
Uniforms for today are the black jersey with dirty gray away pants.
Melky with a walk to open the Sox game,
I don’t like Anthony’s ERA at 17.18 but let’s see what he can do. First pitch was a ball
Todd Frazier opens the Sox hitting with a single in the top of 2nd, Tried to pick off Todd at 1st but under review,
End of 2 and Anthony finally has a 1,2,3 inning
Tim Anderson with a single and just stole 2nd.
Top of 4th and Todd with a stand up double, J.B shuck with a walk, Dioner Navarro fly out at the warning track and Todd makes it safe to 3rd. Ducks left, he made Tyler go finishing.
Anthony has dropped his ERA down to 9.45
HOLY SHIT, YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD YES, THANKS ANTHONY – YES KIDS his first hit of his major league career is a HOME RUN
Sox – 1 and Cubs – 0 top of 5th
Jose Abreu finally with a single to right to open the 6th – bugger you Todd (hit into rack’em up)
Bottom of 6th and the new kid has a NO HITTER going, It is now a tie game with the cubs getting a solo shot for a 1 all score. to this point
bullpen is active with Zack Duke and Matt Albers dueling it out to see so gets the keys,
A 2 run homer makes it a 3 to 1 Cubs lead. Anthony has nothing to be ashamed of, he was amazing in the bottom of 7th and Zack Duke found the office keys. Zack Duke leaves the office keys with Robin to give to Carson Fulmer
Bottom of 8th and Carson hits Kris Bryant, 4 to 1 lead and J.B smacked the wall going for the ball. Jacob Turner to get the office keys from Robin
A GRAND SLAM just kicks our ass its an 8 to 1 Cubs,
Chris Sale returns to the office tomorrow
