Instant Rationalization - A sufficient amount of bulldogging for a sweep
Jake Peavy allowed the first three batters to reach safely…in multiple innings. Two soft hits and a walk gave Peavy a bases-loaded, no out jam in the 1st, while an error, a walk and an RBI double started his 4th frame of work.  Conceding the run, turning a double play, and excellent glovework  ended the...

“High fives? WHAT THE **** IS GOING ON?!?!” // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune I forgot what I was going to say.
