Matt ALBERS was amazing again Wednesday in the 9th. Last year for the White Sox, Albers really impressed the fans when, after not swinging a baseball bat in a game since 2009, with the game tied 1-1 in the 13th he came in and hit a double, sliding into 2nd, AND….went on to score what would become the winning run. But that’s not all, he also came in to pitch the bottom of the 13th and earned the win.
