Great game tonight to close out the White Sox series. A few observations from the game: Beyond getting on base three times, which was great, Denard Span seemed to be in the perfect position every time a ball was hit his way. And the wind was tricky tonight. That same wind also kept 2 White Sox balls in the ballpark, which was nice. But it got even with us, by keeping 2 potential homers in the park from, of all people, Steve Lombardozzi.
Interesting interleague observation: did Robin Ventura forget that he could pull a double switch mid-inning? It’s understandable since these games are pretty rare for him, but it forced him to have to bat a pitcher at leadoff after he came in to get just one out the prior half inning.
Another random observation: it didn’t matter in the end, but because of a lazy tag by Chicago , it looked like Werth was actually safe at third on Harper’s final hit. Now it’s on to what should be a great series with the Braves.
