Bullpen gets some redemption in win

CHICAGO – While the Chicago White Sox’s walk-off victory stole the show, the much maligned bullpen stood up and made itself noticed Tuesday. The White Sox improved to 8-6 with the 2-1 victory, scoring the difference maker in the ninth inning when Alexei Ramirez came in from second base on a throwing error to first base by Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts. Had the throw to first been on the money instead of in the dirt, the game would have shifted into extra innings.

Twinsights: Phil Hughes and the ‘nail issue’ that may have changed his night

Having pitched all those years in New York, Phil Hughes knows better than to make excuses. That's why he batted away repeated suggestions the "nail issue" on his right index finger may have contributed to a 9-3 loss to Toronto on a cold Tuesday night at Target Field. He threw 13 curveballs across the 72 pitches required for him to navigate the first five innings. Seven of those went for balls, but he also got three outs with a pitch he has featured prominently since Day 1 of spring training, especially with two strikes.

He got the first two batters on easy grounders to first, but then he walked the next three and gave up a 390-foot grand slam to Toronto third baseman Brett Lawrie in a 9-3 Twins loss. "Burtie had a tough game out there," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He’s a good pitcher. I don’t know what’s going on with him right now. He’s not pitching with a lot of confidence." In fiv...
