Sat, 2 Jul 2011|
Heck of a ballgame here Wrigley Field outstanding starting pitching today. And Philip -- walks away with a victory that guards are real hard luck loss on. Just unbelievably you know in the in this heat these conditions. Both those guys went there and do that I I just amazes what's going on baseball cap you know with. All these scores one nothing you know. To -- one low scoring games I guess it's. Just the nature of baseball today but these pitchers you've got to tip your hat to both on its unfortunate -- got lost today -- a big decisions that big calls in this game. We're Ozzie Guillen He decides to -- Philip -- after seven and Matt Thornton does the job of closing golfer Mike Quade. Not a -- for most of this kid's got a controversial play second biggest threat. Well I think Mike and rightly so you know you He went out there in order for his ballclub the play was in this. And more -- that it's not that easy to go out there but He was sure He got a good look at it He was right. And you know you are good enough so that he's out now He goes up in one way and I'm sure that this fashion and mark riggins relied on him a lot to continue with the game well. When you go through all that you make kicked out of games -- all are you exactly. That you're kicked out or do you feel like I did what I had to do my thing yeah there's there's times where you know you gotta go. You know that that when He was He was pretty sure you know what this is a big situation and they they blew that one enough. He he's gonna get tossed and now He knows He can't argue anymore now without him toss -- in the seventh inning two outs nobody on. And that was that Mike Quade whoever made the call decided to let Matt Garza I hit for himself. You and I thought it was the right call because Garza was feeling. Take us through that decision yet others there's two outs and and you know we don't really have much going so. Garza I think Mike. Pat and mark -- off well. Guards they will not scored -- -- -- bars bars will not give up another one I know it's going to be nothing more if we can just squeeze out one. We can get this game but. I think that the confidence indoors and put zero they're not that Coughlin was rewarded He did throw two more zeros up there. I'm fortunate to have been the rules of the run. All right one -- the White Sox look like they are trending in the right direction. Unfortunately the Cubs sixteen under now going in the wrong direction but this -- stuff looks like they could make a run and -- Yeah no question there really move in the right way they're they're not clicking yet you know to put one run on the board that's not the White Sox baseball -- third there. There I've got a great situation they have an even clicked yet only three games out I know Cleveland feels common. And you know let's let's hope the Cubs get it going here before the all star break went about five or six before the break going and feel better about themselves it's.
