Shot Of The Night is Off Base Percentage's toast to a player who had an exceptionally good or bad night. There's always a reason to drink.
Last night's shot of the night was a Black and White: 1/3 oz Dr. Mcgillicuddy's® Vanilla Schnapps, 1/3 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur. It's not a very exciting shot but there weren't many performances that drove me to drink last night. Except for maybe Jered Weaver's 5 earned run doozy. Anyway, this shot is in honor of Carlos Quentin and it seems like it would be good for breakfast.
TCQ powered the White Sox into first place in the Central by going 2-4 with a solo shot and a grand slam. Quentin has been on a serious home run tear. He's 7-13 over the past 7 games with 6 homers. That's about all he does though as the .244/.334 numbers don't really scream All Star. In other White Sox news, Gordon Beckham went 3-4 raising his slash line to .214/.277/.304. *Slow golf clap from Brandon Wood*
Wilson Betemit: DNP
Dishonorable Mention: Carlos Silva
Silva had been enjoying his resurgence in the National League until he ran into the Xavier Paul led Dodgers offense. Silva only made it through an inning and a third while giving up 6 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks. Silva's opposing pitcher, Vicente Padilla, went 8 innings and gave up 2 hits and no runs. Haha, the Cubs' offense is terrible.
