David Krejci got the winners off to fast start scoring on Boston’s first shot at the 1:42 mark.

WSox/Seattle total MLB Bad Beat for the ages

Don’t ever forget that this hobby of ours is gambling and ….. if you bet the total of yesterday’s Chicago White Sox/Seattle Mariner total under, you’ll have a bad beat story to tell at the bar for the rest of your lifetime. With the total set at seven-flat with the low shaded 20 cents, you probably thought about what you’d be doing with the extra money when you checked scores and saw Sox/Mariners 0-0 in the sixth. You probably didn’t bat an eye as the teams headed to extra innings at 0-0. 12 innings ??? No problem ….. still zero-zero. The Sox finally broke through with a five spot in the top of the 14th. No problem right ??? Wrong !!! The Mariners came back with their own five spot in the bottom of the 14th to force two more innings. Chicago finally won 7-5 in 16 inning but by then, several thousand “Under” tickets had been reduced to thousands of pieces or posted on Walls of Shame. This one was one tough beat bit like they say in Poland, shitzky happens.
