WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Nick Markakis robs Conor Gillaspie of go-ahead HR

With the White Sox trailing the Orioles 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Nick Markakis robbed Conor Gillaspie of what would have been a go-ahead two run homer. Not content with taking away Chicago’s chance at tying the game, Markakis capped off a five-run eighth inning for Baltimore with a two-run homer of his own to right field with a little more lift than Gillaspie’s fly out had.

There’s a month and a half to go in the season, and maybe for Gordon Beckham, as well.

Hawk Harrelson: “They’ll have catchers wearing skirts”

Chicago White Sox broadcaster Hawk Harrelson was very upset about an earlier call in which the San Francisco Giants were awarded a run on a Rule 7.13 review, and he wouldn’t let it go.
