PAUL KONERKO HOMERS AS WHITE SOX BEAT CUBS IN A CLOSE CALL
Mon, 27 Jun 2011 11:56 AM EDT
Paul Konerko has definitely changed the way people view the White Sox as a team as, but he senses that things are going to change this time around. The one thing that may be riding on his mind is the fact that both these teams have losing streaks, in terms of the first three games at night during the first half of the week instead of playing over the weekend. However the hottest hitter for the White Sox has no complains. Baseball spreads
Konerko speaking on Tuesday night said that he managed to homer for the fifth time in a row as the White Sox managed to beat the Cubs 3-2 in a game which was originally delayed by rain which also saw Brent Morel hitting a great go ahead sacrifice into the seventh.
Konerko said “It’s still way above a regular-season game. You still have that pump up from these games, it’s not like a run of the mill game,” “It has a little different flavor to it. That’s the way it goes. It’s no big deal.”
You also need to keep in mind that Konerko is now approaching his newest power surge which featured a good 11 homers in the last 20 games he played. This makes him the sixth player in the history of the White Sox to home for five straight games since Carlos Lee back in 2003. Basketball odds
Konerko said “All I’m trying to do is go out there, trying to get my body and myself in a good position to let it go. Make good decisions, good pitch to hit, bad pitch to hit,” “Sometimes it just lines up. You feel good, you get good pitches, the weather is good for it. You have those little streaks, homers, RBIs, doubles, all kinds of power stuff, that kind of comes in bunches anyway. I don’t really read too much into it.”
The game was originally delayed for a good 1 hour and 44 minutes after the U.S Cellular Field was hit by a thunderstorm. The winds made it very difficult for the crew to get the trap on the field and when it was taken off the infield looked muddy and required many sand bags of their drying compound prior for it being ready to play on.
