Quick Death

That game last night was fast and dumb. No #200 for Wake (though all some of us really care about is 193) and no 26 for Pedroia.

It looked as if Kevin Gregg was trying to give the Yanks the game in the 9th just to mess with us, as he came in with a 3-run lead and started giving up doubles and walks galore. But the jerk got out of it, so we stay 2.5 games up.

July 30th in BoSox vs. ChiSox history:

1904 CHW: 6-4 L
1912 @CHW: 6-5 L
1914 @CHW: 4-0 W
1917 CHW: 3-1 W
1924 @CHW: 7-6 L
1953 CHW: 17-1 L
1961 CHW: 4-2 L
1961 CHW: 9-8 W
1971 @CHW: 5-1 L
1982 @CHW: 9-6 L
1984 @CHW: 7-0 L
1985 CHW: 7-5 L
1986 @CHW: 7-2 L
1990 CHW: 3-0 W

4-10 overall, 1-6 in Chicago. In game two of the '61 doubleheader, Boston was down 7-0, but scored a run in the 4th, 3 in the 5th, 1 in the 6th, 1 in the 7th, 1 in the 8th, 1 in the 9th, and 1 in the 10th to win 9-8. After Vic Wertz tied it leading off the bottom of the 9th with a dong to center, Joe Ginsberg singled home the winner in the 10th. He had jogged in from the bullpen to make his pinch-hitting appearance, and ended up with the 182nd and last RBI of his career, one that started in 1948. "I got it at Moe Ginsburg!"
