Chicago White Sox CF Alejandro De Aza managed to hit an infield double Tuesday night as the Cleveland Indians infielders lost the ball in a cloud of smoke.


The smoke came from fireworks which were set off to celebrate a home run by the previous White Sox batter, Gordon Beckham. After De Aza's double, the White Sox scored three more runs in the inning on the way to a 7-3 victory.

Maybe the umpires should have delayed the game for a minute or two to let the smoke clear. Of course, maybe the White Sox should save the fireworks for after the game. Otherwise, if this keeps working for them, the White Sox may set off the fireworks after every hit.

Chicago White Sox: One month in

Suffice it to say that the Chicago White Sox surprised pretty much everyone this April. As I’ve said before, it doesn’t look like they will become the awful 95-loss team that analysts predicted. Going into May, their record of 12-11 has them vying for first place in the AL Central. It is true that the Sox were in contention last year before the Detroit Tigers got red-hot, but...

MLB: April’s American League top players by position

The first month of the major league baseball season was a whirlwind. In the American League, Tampa Bay, Cleveland, and Texas lead their respective divisions. As is always the case, some players have come from out of nowhere to surprise with their production while others have been flat out terrible. We’re only one month in so much will change, but with a full calendar month now...

BP Unfiltered: Adam Dunn and the Infield Fly Rule by Sam Miller

Cycling is, above all, a team sport, and the tactics involved are as complicated as those of baseball or basketball. "Ever try to explain the infield fly to somebody?" Armstrong asked me when we were in Texas, where he lives when he is not racing or training in Europe. --New Yorker, 2002 If you know very little about baseball, you still probably know that the infield...

White Sox 7, Indians 2

Gordon Beckham snapped out of a slump with three hits and the Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 7-2 on Tuesday. Beckham was mired in 0-for-10 slide and was batting just .153 before he belted a solo homer in the third to give Chicago a 2-1 lead on a rainy, overcast night at U.S. Cellular Field. He also singled in a run in the fifth. A.J. Pierzynski also had a solo homer...

Bullpen solid, Jimenez not in Indians' loss

CHICAGO (AP) -- Gordon Beckham snapped out of a slump with three hits and the Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 7-2 on Tuesday. Beckham was mired in 0-for-10 slide and was batting just .153 before he belted a solo homer in the third to give Chicago a 2-1 lead on a rainy, overcast night at U.S. Cellular Field. He also singled in a run in the fifth. A.J. Pierzynski also...

White Sox 7, Indians 2: Tribe Drops the Ball in Chicago

The early-April Chicago rain gave way to fireworks, smoke and free passes from the Indians’ stirrup-wearing starter. After an hour delay, the White Sox played host to the Cleveland Indians who would go on to play one of their fundamentally worst games of the still-young 2012 season. Errant pitches, botched grounders, dropped pop-ups and miscommunication on stolen base attempts...

May 2nd: Indians defeat White Sox 6-3; My Experience at U.S. Cellular Field

If you follow me on Twitter at @Grab_Some_Bench, which you ‘oughta, then you know that Wednesday night’s game was the first time I made it to U.S. Cellular Field in this young 2012 campaign. I soaked up a lot throughout the five or-so hours I spent there, and I think you’ll all enjoy hearing what I found to be unique about “The Cell” this season. But first, let’s touch...

White Sox-Tigers Preview

Prior to the start of the season, few would have considered a matchup between Detroit's Drew Smyly and Chicago's Jake Peavy a pitchers' duel. Both are off to sensational starts, however, and runs could be hard to come by when the two square off in Friday night's series opener between the Tigers and White Sox at Comerica Park. After opening 9-3, Detroit (12-12) has...

Joe Cowley down to final strike at Sun-Times

According to the sources of Time Out Chicago’s Robert Feder (a long time Chicago Sun-Times writer, so I would very seriously trust these sources), Sun-Times sports columnist Joe Cowley is one step away from being canned. As far as his employment goes, the former White Sox reporter hired away from the Daily Southtown is trailing by a couple runs with two out and two strikes in the...
