Pre-Game Report

Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

Say what you want about the offensive slump of the Chicago White Sox, you sure save time reading about all their hitting exploits!  The Montreal Expos win 4-3.  Who's surprised?

So without further ado...

(Fast-forward to the fifth inning because Cy Young candidate Tony Armas, Jr. (6-7, 4.23 ERA) held the Sox hitless for the first four innings).

Hit #1.  Tony Graffanino strokes a two-out double.  Woo hoo!  Can we do anything with it?  Nope.  Mark Johnson grounds out to end the inning.

Hit #2.  With two men on, both walks, Magglio Ordonez strokes a two-run double.  Woo hoo!  Is this the start of a big rally?  Nope.  Paul Konerko and Jose Valentin leave Ordonez stranded.

Hit #3.  Frank Thomas homered in the eighth.  Nice going, Frank.  Nobody was on base.  Who's surprised?

Hit #4.  Finally, in the ninth inning, the Sox get a leadoff hit when Jose Valentin strokes one to right.  Down a run, here is our chance for the big late-inning comeback!  Woo hoo!

Nope.  Carlos Lee is up next.  Valentin has second base stolen on a hit and run, but Lee fouls off the pitch.  Back to first goes Manos.  Next Lee tries to bunt, but he doesn't know how, so the ball runs straight back to the pitcher.  Valentin is out on the force and Lee somehow manages to carry his ass across first base before the relay throw arrives.

Hawk, D.J., Rooney, and Farmer were all singing El Caballo's praises after he makes it to third base on an infield single by Graffanino.  Woo hoo!  With Mark Johnson coming to the plate, a simple fly ball ties the game.

Nope.  Johnson tries the safety squeeze, but misses the pitch.  Lee comes up the line too far, and gets picked off third base.  THIRD BASE!!!

Do we need to mention Johnson struck out after Graffanino reached second on a passed ball, putting the tying run back in scoring position?  Game over--and the boos poured down.

The new line up isn't working, and the most noteworthy event promised at Comiskey Saturday night is several hundred Sox Fans sharing sleeping bags in the outfield after the game with the lights turned out.

Our advice to the couples:  let's be careful out there!
