It wasn't pretty for the White Sox. Poor Hawk Harrelson even said it was one of the worst innings he's ever covered as a Chicago broadcaster and poor Dylan Axelrod was lit up for eight runs - six earned - in his 2 1/3 innings of work.
And the people who were worried about Phil Hughes' performance today had nothing to worry about thanks to a one hour and 53-minute rain delay which began in the second inning. He gave up one hit in his inning and a third of work and was only at 20 pitches when the delay occurred. In fact, Hughes opened the game with a 10-pitch, 1-2-3 first inning.
David Huff came in when they game resumed play and he pitched 5 2/3 innings of five-hit, one-run ball with three strikeouts. His only blemish was a solo home run by Paul Konerko in the seventh inning.
Brett Gardner hit two more doubles today. He's a doub, doub, double machine, double machine, watch him get down-- Sorry. That couldn't be helped.
Tomorrow, Yankee fans and White Sox fans may be in for a treat with the pitching matchup: Chris Sale vs. Hiroki Kuroda. Yankee fans are also hoping Kuroda turns things around. His last few starts haven't been pretty and the Yankees need him to make a correction while they're fighting for their playoff lives.
