Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

White Sox Suck

White Sox 7, Indians 6
Joe Crede..... what is going on? Seriously. Joe Crede. 2-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, and 2 home-runs, including the game-winner. Joe Crede. The White Sox continually came back throughout this game as the Indians took 2-0, 3-2, and 5-3 leads, but the Indians found themselves forced to score in the top of the 9th to send the game into extra innings. Bobby Howry was the goat for the Indians, allowing 2 ER in 2/3 of an inning. Jake Westbrook was simply ok, but Mark Buerhle sure didn't look like an ace. At all. White Sox fans can't be too confidant after watching him struggle out there. He had no control of his fastball, and Indians hitters were teeing up off of him and smoking the ball, whether for an out or over the fence. Excellent moment was when the umpire screwed up a 3-0 pitch on Aaron Boone on a pitch that was WAY outside, calling it a strike. Boone took the next pitch for a ride over the fence, giving the Indians a 2-0 lead.

The White Sox lead is back up to 3.5 games, while the Indians wildcard lead is down to .5 games over the Yankees.

Cleveland (Elarton) vs. White Sox (Garland) - The White Sox have the decidedly better pitcher going into this matchup, but Elarton has been pitching rather well lately. A win here for the Indians would be huge.
