    The Chicago White Sox really needed to take this game to stay alive in the AL Central race, but unfortunately they could not do it. What is worse is how badly they lost. The Sox are not their usual selves, that's for sure, but come on, this was flat out embarrassing and was similar to the Yankees thrashing of the A's a few days ago.

    It was fun for what it was, but for sure it was not competitive. Congratulations Tigers, it looks like you are going back to the playoffs this year.moreless
  • Well, that was different...

    Despite the score, I enjoyed the game. I can't ever recall seeing a 16 run differential or a team scoring 18. I felt for the poor guy who got left out there to give up seven runs in only his second major league appearance.

    It's hard to imagine that the White Sox aren't done. After blowing that 8-1 lead yesterday, they looked like they were still recovering from that heartbreaking loss.

    Detroit is a solid team but they will have to face either Boston or New York in the Divisional round and that's going to be tough. They could be formidable opponent given they have Justin Verlander. Then again, I figured the Rangers would be a tough out in the World Series as they had Cliff Lee and we know how that turned out.

    A memorable game.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Andy Dirks: It's almost a little surreal at times when you're scoring that many runs. At the same time, it's just one game. It doesn't matter if you win by two or you win by 20.

    • Mark Buehrle: We needed to come here and make a statement. We had to win two of three, if not sweep them, and that's the furthest thing from what actually happened. We're not mathematically eliminated, but a smart man isn't going to like our chances right now. We're not going to give up, but we're in big trouble.

    • Max Scherzer: Craziest game I've ever been a part of as a professional - just watching all the hits keep piling up and runs keep piling up. Obviously, I love it. Obviously, if I have to keep going back into the hitting cage and keep throwing balls and keep warming up, I guess that's a good thing.
