White Sox - 401 011 201 - 10 15 2 Red Sox - 220 210 001 - 8 12 1David Ortiz hit a two-run homer in the first inning, his 20th longball of the season. Ortiz's 13 seasons with 20+ home runs in a Boston uniform rank second only to Ted Williams (16). The only player with more consecutive 20+ home run seasons with a single American League team is Babe Ruth (15, Yankees, 1920-34).
I watched only the middle innings of this one, so looking back at the top of the first against Joe Kelly - man oh man, what a way to start the night: triple, triple, double, HBP, single, FC/E1 ...
Ryan Hanigan batted as the potential winning run in the bottom of the ninth, but grounded out to third.
Rusney Castillo was recalled from Pawtucket.
