Last night’s matchup featured Jose Contreras for the Pale Hose versus John Lackey for the Halos. Both were once the aces of their respective staffs. Contreras was the #1 man in the White Sox 2005 rotation when the won it all. Lackey is coming off an injury, but is still pretty much regarded the #1 man in Anaheim. John got out of a first inning jam allowing only one run, soon it was obvious that he had his A-game working. While Jose surrendered one run and the game was a classic one-one pitcher’s dual.

That is until the White Sox got a man on, Erick Aybar made a throwing error on a single, making it 2nd & 3rd with A.J. Pierzynski at the dish. Mike Scioscia having pity on the Sox, not wanting to embarrass them by taking four straight, intentionally passed A.J. This loaded the bases for the hottest hitter on the White Sox Carlos Quentin. You guessed it, Quentin took Scot Shields yard. Final score 6-1.

One more game to go, let’s see if Scioscia has anymore charity in his heart, as Jon Garland will meet Javier Vazquez in the series finale tonight. The Angels are up two games to one. The two teams will meet up again in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend.
