In case Sportscenter hasn’t told you enough Manny Ramirez plays for the White Sox now. He didn’t start last night but he as taking his hacks in the on deck circle during Chicago’ half of the 9th. Apparently Manny was intimidating enough for the pitcher to groove one to a guy that hadn’t homered since July 9.
So what did Pierzynski attribute his game winning homer to? Here it is:
“I told [Ramirez], ‘I finally got some protection.”
With Pierzynski finally seeing some strikes hitting in front of Ramirez I’m not sure how the Twins can hold on until October.
