If you are a Chicago Whitesox fan, then last night might not have been your best night for baseball. When you all let Jim Thome go last year, it seemed that only Ozzie himself knew the mistake that was being made. And last night, the pied piper came calling. Jim Thome stepped up to the plate in the 10th inning and ripped a home run over the right field wall. This gave the Minnesota Twins a 7-6 victory over the Chicago Whitesox, and also a 4 game lead in the AL Central Division.
