4/4/07 Linescore of the Day: Ted Lilly

Ted Lilly: 7 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K

Ok, so I’m showing my colors. Sue me. Lilly showed he has some stuff and maybe silenced the critics. Will he do this every time? Likely not. But this is a good way for Lilly to start 07.

I’m giving special mention to White Sox reliever David Aardsma. He pitched 2 innings allowing one hit and striking out five. What wasn’t reflected in his linescore was that he entered the game in the 8th with the bases loaded and no out. He proceeded to strike out three Indians to retire the side.

The Sox lost anyway.

Aardsma, by the way, was one of the players honored by the Coastal Plain League along with University of Illinois shortstop Shawn Roof. Specifically, he was named to their All-Decade team. You can read more about it here.

  1. David struckout those three Indians without any of them even touching a pitch. He struckout the next two batters the next inning as well.
