Five-run 6th inning rallies Sox past James Shields

The White Sox offense seemed to be all out of hot streak mid-way through their May 29th game in Tampa.  Against the work of James Shields, they had been limited to a single run, and were befuddled by the changeup Shields had rode to a complete game win against Chicago the previous year.

But in the 6th, the Sox pulled themselves up off of the mat in an unfamiliar way.  One-by-one, they began to track the movement of Shields changeup and began poking balls into the outfield.  By the time Shields gathered himself, he’d already yielded five straight hits and five runs.

It was the type of mid-game offensive judgment that simply wasn’t seen in 2011.
