Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin in after yet another exciting White Sox walk-off winner over the Angels. The game started off with Jerry Reinsdorf starting the pre-game salute to Mark Buerhle to begin the “Mark Buerhle Appreciation Series” as he gave some nice framed pics to Buerhls & D-Wise.

So after that nice ceremony it was time for baseball & Bacon got it going in a very great way with his 6th homer of the season to give the Sox an early 1-0 lead. In the very next inning Carlos Quentin homered to give us a 2-0 lead. Then that’s where it got messy.
CONTRERAS’ WALKS:

Jose continued his “Walk-a-thon” in the 3rd inning as he walked 3 batters & gave up 1 run on a wild pitch & 2 more runs on a single by Bobby Abreu to give up the lead 3-2. That’s when Ozzie decided it was time for Jose to see the shower as he took him out with only 2 & a third innings pitched  with 66 pitches thrown. This has been a HUGE problem for Jose lately & one that quickly needs to be fixed. Really it should have been a 5-0 W because of the fact that the Angels scored all 4 of their runs of walks. So in the 5th the Sox tied the game off a sac fly to make it 3-3. That didnt last long as Bobby Abreu drove in the go ahead run in the next inning off a Sac Fly.
BACON TO THE RESCUE….AGAIN

After a 2 Out double by Pods, Gordon Beckham striked AGAIN with a RBI single that tied the game at 4. The bullpen did a solid job as the combination of Carrasco, Randy Williams, Pena, Thornton & Dotel combined to only allow 1 run and held the game at 4 until the ninth. Thats when Pods delivered again, Jayson Nix got it started with a 2 Out double to put the winning run in scoring position.

Thats when Pods blasted a a hit to give the White Sox a 5-4 win and cutting the Tigers divison lead to 1 game as they got hammered by the O’s 8-2(so much for Washburn lol)
OTHER NOTES:
Alexei Ramirez sat out again with his ankle injury but should return this weekend against the Indians.
-Bobby Jenks is going to have a procedure done to get rid of his Kidney Stones, its expected to be an Out Patient procedure but will miss a couple games to recover. GET WELL BIG FELLA!!
-Gordon Beckham won the AL’s Rookie Of The Month Award for July(Just a precursor until he wins the AL Rookie Of The Year Award)
Tomorrow night the Sox will hope for another solid performance from Gavin Floyd as he will take the mound against the Angel’s 3-0 rightie Sean O’Sullivan Until next time yall PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!
