One. Weird. Night.
What's going on?
•A.J. Pierzynski and Jake Peavy get in one another's grills.
•Alfonso Soriano actually steals a base -- his first of the season.
•Doug Davis forgets that sometimes on a bunt it's good to throw to first base … in a timely fashion.
•Pierzynski legs out a triple -- for the first time in two years.
But coming as absolutely no surprise:
Both Peavy and Pierzynski downplayed their dust-up, with Peavy saying: "We're just competing. It's part of the game."
That's classy and being a good teammate … but wouldn't it have been a lot more fun if they actually went at it?
"Way to go, Jake!!"
-- former Cubs catcher Michael Barrett, before realizing there wasn't an actual fight.
No surprise, Part II
The White Sox have now won 17 consecutive interleague series.
Big bopper at first:
Talk about being on fire. The guy homers for the third night in a row to cap off a big series.
Yeah, that's right, we're talking about Carlos Pena.
For the White Sox:
Things get a lot tougher with the Washington Nationals coming to town.
Can you believe that sentence is actually true?
For the Cubs:
Off to Kansas City
What lies ahead? Honestly, who knows?
