Washburn had trouble, but wasn't disastrous. But they made him pay. Just one of those starts.
The bullpen pitches 7 innings of shutout, nailbiting, heart-pounding baseball, raising many a fan's blood pressure.
Alone in Comiskey's cheap seats was some goateed dude with a GO HALOS sign.
The Halos did.
After an embarrassing homerun trot turned into a desperate slide into 2nd base, Vladimir Guerrero risked all to score from 2nd base on a sacrifice bunt.
Frankie got the save, Vlad saved face, the team saved sole possession of First Place.
