Peavy, Pierzynski and a wild night at ballpark
- Photos (1)
Jake Peavy turns toward the pitcher's mound after being pulled by manager Ozzie Guillen in the sixth inning Wednesday at U.S. Cellular Field.
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?
