Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski gave Sarah Kustok from Comcast Sports Net a proper send-off last night. In the middle of her doing her final interview for the station (Sox outfielder Alex Rios) Kustok got a cream pie to the face from the Sox most controversial player.
It was an exciting follow up to an 8-6 White Sox win over the L.A. Angels in 10 innings. Sarah Kustok got a new job out of market, which has not officially been announced yet.

Pinch-hitter A.J. Pierzynski tied a White Sox record by homering in his fifth consecutive game, a go-ahead, two-run drive in the seventh inning off Jason Isringhausen that led Chicago over the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 Sunday.
With the Angels ahead 2-1, Isringhausen (3-2) relieved Dan Haren and allowed a leadoff single to Dayan Viciedo. Pierzynski hit for Tyler Flowers and hit a drive...
Alex Rios quietly had a stellar first half, but the second half is now a little louder. The latest example of that came Friday night in the Chicago White Sox's 8-6, 10-inning win over the Los Angeles Angels, when Rios' second homer of the game was a walk-off shot. Rios is now hitting .318 with 18 homers, after looking like a bust last season, when he batted .227 with...
Jeff Manto stresses approach over mechanics and believes in letting a hitter be himself. The philosophy is paying dividends for the first-year Chicago White Sox hitting coach, as his team currently ranks sixth in MLB in runs scored and fifth in home runs. A big part of that success has been the reemergence of Adam Dunn and Alex Rios, who have flourished under his watch.

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Los Angeles Angels are playing their Friday night game against the Chicago White under protest.
Paul Konerko of the White Sox hit a grounder to third base with the bases loaded and no outs in the bottom of the first inning. After getting the out at home, catcher Chris Iannetta fired wide to first, pulling Albert Pujols off the bag.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia...
While the Chicago White Sox apparently tried to bring Zack Greinke to the South Side before the trade deadline, the Los Angeles Angels ultimately wound up with one of the most coveted arms on the market.
Coming off a hard-luck loss, Greinke again tries for his first win with his new team Friday night as the visiting Angels open a three-game set with the AL Central-leading White...
(AP) -- A.J. Pierzynski and the Chicago White Sox hit for a lot of power over the weekend. Continuing that trend could make it especially easy for Chris Sale in his return to the mound.
Pitching on extended rest, Sale will go for his 13th win Monday night when the White Sox host the Kansas City Royals.
Chicago (59-48) took two of three from Los Angeles over the weekend, winning...

Unfortunately, not every ballpark experience is a good one. Specially for this kid, who was surrounded...
