White Sox and O's Game Suspended: The Rundown and Quick Hits...

Starter Daniel Cabrera allowed two runs on four hits with two strikeouts; however, he had seven walks and hit a batter over 6 1/3 innings for Baltimore.

Cabrera's counterpart on the mound, Javier Vazquez was solid in the start for Chicago, giving up four hits, allowing one run while fanning seven over eight full frames.

The Baltimore Orioles had multiple chances to put the White Sox in the late innings; however, in the bottom of the 11th, George Sherill gave up a solo homer to Chicago’s Juan Uribe to tie the game — again — 3-3.

Huff getting tossed from the game for losing his temper was stupid
, Melvin Mora being picked off at first by Bobby Jenks, as well as Adam Jones (as much as I love the kid) made a foolish turn at third and got himself out to end the ninth.

Out of mercy, the game was suspended in the 11th inning.

This road trip must bite for Baltimore, but they have played strong and competitive baseball, thus, we could not ask for anything more from them. At this point, I'm a little concerned about the bullpen as they pretty have been in every game -- we are talking about eight games in a span of seven days.

Well, the trip is over --- for now, and they're glad about it.

About the conditions during the game -- it was deplorable. I got home around 5:30 and just by chance I turned on the TV caught them playing. I wondered in my mind why is this game going on? Could they not have covered the tarp, um like 2 hours earlier?

I can understand why the umpires wanted the game played, but at some point you have to use common sense and avoid the risk of injury. Imagine if someone had been hurt — that could have affected things in a big way for either team.

The Sun's Dan Connolly wonders if D-Cab has turned the corner; however, in yesterday's game, the old Daniel made an appearance, but despite the numbers, he had a relatively solid start, though it could have been much worse.

Meanwhile, Rock Kubatko wonders how yesterday's game will be made up and ponders about Garrett Olson. Spencer Fordin reports that Olson is relishing the chance to start today and prove himself in the majors.

WNST's Matt Bender thinks this week's series at home will be huge for both the Rays and Orioles who are shocking baseball right now with their supremacy in the AL East; Camden Chat's SC reviews the game yesterday as does the Orioles Hangout site; Ben from Oriole Central was not impressed with Cabrera; HRB has a note about stupid fans who want to run the field and the Roar From 34 goes over what Trembley said last week about the Seattle incident; The Wayward O had a note about the Nationals' new ballpark; & Weaver's Tantrum really likes D-Cab.
