Mike Spellman's scorecard

Success - Article sent! close

They're baaack:

Remember early April? It was rainy, cold and miserable … and the last time the White Sox were at the .500 mark.


What more can Juan Pierre do? Really?

Philip Humber:

Got a little help from the free-swinging Cubs.

Matt Garza:

Got absolutely no help from the free-swinging Cubs.

Just to recap:

Double play. Double play. Double play.

What a difference:

Did you notice how dead the Cubs' dugout was when Kerry Wood was being interviewed in-game?

And then ...

Did you notice how loose the Sox' dugout was when it was John Danks' turn at the mic?

The numbers:

The White Sox have beaten the Cubs in 15 times in their last 20 meetings.

Doin' their homework:

At the top of Saturday's broadcast, the boys at Fox referred to the series as "The Windy City Classic!"


Hey, Jay Cutler is in the house:

And by the look on his face, he's already in midseason form.

Veteran move:

The usually stoic Pierre unloaded on home-plate umpire Gary Darling after being called out on strikes in the third inning.

That may have paid off big time, because just before his game-winning single in the sixth he took what sure looked like strike three.

At last:

Mike Quade finally got a standing ovation at Wrigley Field!

Too bad it had to come after being ejected.
