Ozzie's Rants: "Brent Lillibridge is My Closer!"
Last night while the attention of the city of Chicago was centered on the Hawks and Bulls playoff contests, the White Sox got a huge boost from the most unlikely of places during their 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees.
Late in the game Tuesday night, Ozzie Guillen made a pretty typical Ozzie move, pinch-running for Carlos Quentin with speedy utility-man BrentLillibridge. Lillibridge then remained in the game in right field as a defensivesubstitution.
In the ninth inning with a one-run lead, Lillibridge made back-to-back spectacular plays, robbing Alex Rodgriguez and Robinson Cano of what would have been game-winning doubles with runners on first and second.
Ozzie Guillen, to say the least, was impressed, as evidenced by his post-game interview.
