Craig Kimbrel got booed during intros. Wasn't like the whole stadium but definitely audible. Cmon people.
With respect to Kimbrel's struggles on the White Sox, he's not the guy the fans should be booing. https://t.co/YsG9VOF2kl
What if we pretended the trade was Ryan Tepera and Craig Kimbrel for Nick Madrigal, Codi Heuer and Bailey Horn?
Bummer in after Tepera was fantastic. That should mean Kimbrel in the 8th and Hendriks in the 9th.
White Sox beat the Astros, 12-6
Down 5-1 after the top of the third, the Sox kept their season alive with an 11-run surge. Ryan Tepera, Aaron Bummer, Craig Kimbrel and Liam Hendriks combined for five perfect innings.
Sox trail the Astros 2-1. They play again very soon
Aaron Bummer strikes out Michael Brantley, Alex Bregman and Yordan Álvarez in a perfect seventh. Mercy.
The last three innings have been the kind of relief pitching the Sox envisioned before the season started. On Craig Kimbrel and Liam Hendriks to keep that going.
White Sox pitchers tonight,
Dylan Cease: GAS
Michael Kopech: GAS
Ryan Tepera: NASTY
Aaron Bummer: NASTY
Craig Kimbrel: GAS
Liam Hendriks: GAS
If Bummer gets Correa and Tucker, then Kimbrel is in for Gurriel. If any trouble, Hendriks. That’s what I’m thinking
Hope pitching tonight doesn’t preclude Hendriks from doing multiple innings tomorrow. Kimbrel would have been fine now.
Quite the night for the Sox bullpen. One more inning to go after Kimbrel gets the third out of the eighth.
Tepera (three Ks), Bummer (four Ks), Kimbrel have not allowed a hit.
Sox 9, Astros 6
So it'll be Kimbrel for one out and then Hendriks for the 9th. Keeps them both avail for tomorrow conceivably. I like this move.
Kimbrel rewards TLR's confidence. Exhale. Three outs to Game 4. #WhiteSox
Congrats to Tony La Russa for figuring out what Fredi Gonzalez couldn't and that's to put Craig Kimbrel in the game in the 8th inning
Ballgame. #WhiteSox beat the Astros, 10-6, in Game 3 to stave off elimination. Offense broke out – HRs from Leury Garcia and Yasmani Grandal. Tepera, Bummer, Kimbrel and Hendriks went five scoreless innings and struck out nine without a walk.
Carlos Rodón on the bump in Game 4.
¿Alguien más se percató que #ChangeTheGame tiró cinco entradas perfectas para finalizar el Juego 4 frente a #ForTheH?
Juntos, nueve K’s y solo uno de esos outs fue por elevado.
#MLB #Postseason #ALDSGame3
Here comes Craig Kimbrel with two outs and nobody on in the eighth, White Sox leading 9-6.
In my mind we traded Ryan Tepura for Nick Madrigal and Craig Kimbrel for Bailey Horn….now they were good trades
#WhiteSox fans at the game you brought and kept the energy up!! #WhiteSox Twitter did so as well! I was pretty down after some of the negativity on here Friday & I even got upset at some people in my suite tonight who booed Kimbrel and TLR. But overall, great work! On to Game 4!
Seems silly going to Liam now. Any struggles or injury and then what do we have left. Stick with Kimbrel….he says he’s a stud in the 9th, give him his chance
The #WhiteSox win Game 3 of the ALDS resoundingly as the Chicago bullpen combo of Ryan Tepera, Aaron Bummer, Craig Kimbrel, and Liam Hendriks threw 5 perfect innings against a fearsome #Astros order.
Leury García and Yasmani Grandal both hit homers. Game 4 is tomorrow.
Alright, Craig Kimbrel up. LFG Craig. It's your fuckin time.
Props to Tony for figuring out a way to successfully deploy Kimbrel
I think we can safely scratch Kopech from Game 4. Probably not more than 1 frame for either Tepera & Bummer. Hendriks could deliver 2. Crochet is fresh but like Kimbrel not the best option to face the Houston lineup. Rodon → Tepera → Bummer → Hendriks? https://t.co/gD2pHTC9kp
Both are fair points. I thought about Kimbrel in the ninth too, but I’m guessing Liam was cranked up already.
Exactly. If the Sox are going to make any noise going forward, they need Kimbrel to be successful. Hopefully it’s a step in the right direction.
#WhiteSox-#Astros ALDS G3
Starting from a position of extreme advantage CHW fell into an early 5-1 hole in Top 3 but would plate 5 in Bottom 3 & 3 more via extreme GB bad fortune in 4th & cruise from there as Tepera, Bummer, Kimbrel. & Hendriks retired the final 15 in order. https://t.co/NJlt9XvZdo
