US Cellular Field: White Sox – Yankees (Game 2).

So we headed down to US Cellular Field for one last beating by the Yankees and they did not disappoint. These were actually the ‘better seats’ we bought during our seven game pack and it was not worth it. We were in section 149 and unless you had an isle seat or were in the first 10 rows you really had a hard time seeing the batter at home plate. It didn’t really matter as the Yankees won 7-2 and completed the series sweep of the White Sox.

As you can see from the two photographs above the White Sox were having a hell of a time with the Yankees last night at US Cellular Field.  13 runs in 3 innings is never a good thing.  Julie actually won these tickets in a raffle at Finley Dunnes so I will pretend it didn’t happen.

It was Mayor Daley Night at US Cellular Field which consisted of a commemorative baseball, a small speech and a montage.  The funny part was the baseball wasn’t handed out until you left the park so as to keep people from the throwing the ball at the former mayor.

The White Sox organization thinks of everything.

***** At one point in the game they decided to mix things up to get the Sox back in it and they changed bags at first base. Clearly Adam Dunn was not impressed.

After being on the road for a week it’s back to Chicago Baseball. Last night I witnessed the White Sox get blown out 10-2 by the Red Sox. The game started off quickly with no hits until the 4th inning and then it just blew apart with a series of home runs by the Red Sox. The White Sox began to rally in the 7th and 8th but the Red Sox just destroyed them with 5 runs in the top of the 9th inning.

IMG_0851.jpgAt Schaller's Pump -

**** Before the game Julie and I took an epic bus trip to Schaller’s Pump for a couple pregame drinks. We’ve tried once before to stop there but the bar doesn’t open until 4pm on Saturday’s which makes it a little bit difficult for a 6pm game. So we took the bus and it was worth the ride. Cans of beer run $2.75 nearly as cheap as a Lenten Fish Fry.
