From Excite:


CLEVELAND (AP) - Jody Gerut never imagined beating the very team he grew up rooting for, especially in such a key situation.
Cleveland's rookie outfielder blooped a bases-loaded, pinch-hit single off the glove of Chicago shortstop Jose Valentin with two outs in the 10th inning, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Sunday.

"I was a White Sox fan as a kid, I just loved them," said Gerut, who grew up near Chicago. "But I had a job to do today.

"Half my friends will hate me and the other half will love me. Cubs fans will say, 'Way to go."'

Uh, Mr. Gerut, you can come to us when you become a free agent and fulfill your boyhood dream.

Yeah... though it's a Cub fan who's probably beaten us the most in the last couple of years. He goes by the name of Jim Thome, and thank god he's not in the Central anymore.
