Postgame interview with Ozzie Guillen
White Sox manager meets the media after Game 2 defeat to Rays
Do you regret leaving Buehrle in there too long kind of the way Grady Little did with Pedro in the 2000 ALCS?OZZIE GUILLEN: Nope, he's my best guy, and he was throwing well. The only ball hit hard in that inning that was the ball Upton hit. And no, I'm not going to regret that. I can sleep tonight and the rest of my life real good. Just in general tonight you guys had a few chances, several chances to score runs. Basically your hits were such that you could only advance runners one base, couldn't get much out of what you had? Was that just frustrating? OZZIE GUILLEN: It's White Sox baseball. You know, we have 12 hits, we got two runs and that two runs were in the first inning. We got Kazmir against the ropes and we let him go. And we left 12, 14 people on base. You're not going to win that many games like that. The opportunities were there, and we couldn't get it done. They have what? They had 12 hits and they scored six runs. That means they got clutch hitting with that.
