Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory

Baseball teams across the country should be circling the day they get to play the White Sox with glee.

On the same day that the Warriors clawed back from a seven point deficit five minutes before the end of Game 6, the Chicago White Sox did exactly the opposite.

The White Sox went into today’s game against Kansas City with a four game losing streak that they thought they were finally going to break. After all, they were up by six going into the bottom of the ninth.

And then the bullpen blew it.

They gave up seven runs to the Royals in the bottom of the ninth and allowed the Royals to celebrate an amazing walk-off.

If that isn’t snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, I don’t know what is.
