5-25-08: Angels 2 - Sox 3

May 25, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

Everybody loves homers.

Carlos Quentin seemed to redeem himself for the two errors in yesterday's game by providing all the offense for the White Sox. All three runs were provided off of his bat by way of the homer.

Jose Contreras provided another spectacular outing to hold the Angels to two runs, but didn't factor in the decision, despite going eight innings. Scott Linebrink got his second win of the season in relief.

The good:
Carlos Quentin's 2 home runs.

Jose Contreras' great outing.

The bad:
The other eight batters didn't provide much offense.

Carlos Quentin was hit by another pitch.

The ugly:
Dye and Pierzynski grounded into double plays.

Only six hits and 1 walk.

Despite the anemic offense, the Sox pulled off another nail biter. This reminds me of the 1990 squad which was dubbed the cardiac kids. That team always seemed to pull it off in the ninth inning. This team is starting to remind me a lot of that team.
