Bouncing Back

Sox Win!

Phil Humber (1 ER/6.0 IP) … pronounced Umber … led the White Sox to a 4-2 victory Saturday as the team improved to 5-3 on the season and bounced back from last night’s disappointing loss.

“That’s what good teams do,” said manager Ozzie Guillen, who told the media before the game that he wanted to see how much fight and energy his club brought to today’s game.

“Great,” Guillen said about Humber.  “He gave us more than we thought we would get.  He was outstanding today.”

Guillen called the ninth inning exchange between catcher A.J. Pierzynski and TB 3B Felipe Lopez “just part of the game,” but gave rave reviews to Sam Fuld’s diving catch in right field to keep the score at 2-1 at the time.

“I don’t remember seeing one better than that,” the manager said, “especially given the situation and where he was playing.”

Familiar Face

Nice to see Robin Ventura and his family out at the game today.  Typical Robin, he requested seats in the stands instead of plopping down in a suite somewhere.  Listen to his message to Sox fans:

That’s more like it Fellas! Nice come back win after the struggles from last night. I guess if you count that as the other side of our improbable win in the second game at KC we are even up and right about where we should be on this young season. Extrapolate out our 5-3 start for the rest of the season and we’re at a smooth 100-60… I’ll accept that…. Go Gavin and go Sox’11….. finish off these Rays tomorrow…j.k.
