☼ Sun - Wakefield - Seven innings of shut out pitching to record his sixteenth win.
☁ Cloud - CWS Bullpen - Eight runs in the eighth, ouch!!

Game thoughts!

Believe it or not this was a close game for the first five innings. Buehrle and Wakefield were both putting up zeroes on the scoreboard with the Red Sox looking especially inept as Buehrle facing only two batters above the minimum in the first five innings. Then the bats decided to wake up for the Boston players.

Dustin started the inning off with an infield single, think about that for a minute, an infield single for probably the slowest player on the Boston team. After a line out by Crisp, Ortiz doubled to deep left field and Ramirez was intentionally walked. The next three batters plated one, one and two runs and the rout was on for the Red Sox. Ten players came to the plate. Ten in one inning after only two runners in the previous five innings. This game was over!
