Suspended animation!

Today's game between the White Sox and Orioles in Chicago was delayed at the outset (for 86 126 minutes) by rain and played in miserable weather (high 30s, drizzle, rain, wind, presence of Ozzie Guillen and A.J. Pierzynski).

The White Sox took a 2-1 lead going to the 9th, but Bobby Jenks couldn't hold the lead. So the game went into extra frames. And in the top of the 11th, Ramon Hernandez homered off of Scott Linebrink to give the Orioles a 3-2 lead. But in the bottom of the 11th, Juan Uribe homered off of George Sherrill to tie the game. Sherrill was able to retire Pierzynski with two on and two outs and then the rain came again to stop the game.

The game has been suspended, but no date for its continuation has been set. The White Sox and Orioles do not play again until August 25 in Baltimore. The Orioles have no more trips to Chicago scheduled, so the game will likely be made up before the start of the August 25 game with the Orioles batting in the top of the 12th.

Aubrey Huff won't be there. He was ejected from this game.

The last suspended game in the majors involved the Orioles. That was this game that started on June 28, 2007 and finished on July 27, 2007. Since that was an intradivisional game between the Yankees and Orioles, there was no need for a change of venue.

Very nice, Bob!
