The Windy City was unkind to the Red Sox on Monday, as they came up just short in their comeback bid against the White Sox. Will Middlebrooks had a chance to tie the game up, but his home run bid died on the warning track, and any hope of Boston winning did as well.
Still, Jon Lester and the (Red) Sox were time and time again just one pitch or one batter away from getting out of trouble all night. Somehow, the White Sox were able to come away with timely hits in each of those key situations, Adam Dunn’s three-run home run in the first inning standing out among them.
For that, we’re awarding him our “Last-Second City” player of the game award. Who gets yours?
