4-11-11: The First Road Map Game Of 2011

This is one of those games where at the end of the year when the wins and losses are tallied up that you want to go back and look at. Not because your team won or lost, but, because of the greatness that was contained therein.

A 1-0 game that was won on a home run by the 9th man in the White Sox order. The 9th man who connected for the 10,000th home run in the long storied history of the Chicago Black White Sox. It took the 10,000th HR to beat Braden while the pitcher opposite Braden allowed only two hits.

The memory of this game is not in who won or lost it, but, TRULY, what happened in the game.

What happened? I was writing this in the bottom of the 8th...Seriously...

Guillen pulled his pitcher who'd given up 2 hits in a 1-0 game...You know what...This game can now be booked for another reason...When a manager gets in the way of history/fate...They lose.

Go A's!
