About Last Night

Other than yuck, Mark Buehrle went over the 2,000 mark for IP in his career … the White Sox turned six double plays last night, setting a franchise record and tying the American League record (14th time).  Buehrle became the first pitcher to induce six GIDPs since KC’s Dick Drago on 5/6/72 at Baltimore.


The top hitter in the AL since 6/26?

Well, the answer is Orlando Cabrera, now of the Twins, at .380, but our Gordon Beckham is not far behind in second at .368 … since 7/11, Cabrera still leads at .419, but Beckham has hit .393 since the break.


Jake Peavy did throw a “simulated game” today in the early afternoon.  More details to follow …
