Red Line Doubleheader Game 2: Yankees at White Sox

31 July 2009 No Comment

After the Cubs game, I went home to let the Cubs fans clear out before taking the red line south to U.S. Cellular Field for game two of the red line doubleheader.

Obtaining Tickets
We needed to buy three tickets for the game. The cheapest price at the box office (which in my opinion makes no sense for the White Sox) was $33 for an upper deck seat. Rather than pay $99 for upper deck seats, we found a fan that had three extra tickets in the 100 level (face value $52 each) that we bought for $100 total.

Rain Delay at the Bullpen Sports Bar
As soon as we entered the stadium, it started to rain. Since the game was delayed, we could either stand in the concourse with all of the other fans, or we could head to the Bullpen Sports Bar. We went to the Bullpen Sports Bar as I would recommend to most fans sitting at U.S. Cellular Field during a rain delay.

The Game
After the game was delayed for about an hour (64 minutes to be exact) due to heavy rains, we headed back to our seats. For the second Thursday in a row, Dewayne Wise was the hero and for the second week in a row he needed help to gain the title. Last Thursday, Wise made a spectacular catch to keep Mark Buehrle’s perfect game in tact.

Last night, with two outs in the top of the 9th, Nick Swisher hit a home run to tie the game at 2 runs apiece. The home run allowed Wise to single in the game-winning run in the bottom of the 9th to lead the White Sox to a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees.
