Contreras, first inning
After warming up with Tyler Flowers, Jose Contreras needed just three pitches to strike out Chris Woodward looking. Yuniesky Betancourt worked the count full before flying out deep to Jerry Owens in center.
Ken Griffey, Jr. was next to the plate and the game slowed down for a moment as he stepped out of the batter’s box twice laughing with White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen and bench coach Joey Cora getting on him from the dugout. After A.J. Pierzynski drew a mixture of laughs and groans from the crowd by putting up the sign for intentional walk, Griffey struck out looking on a full-count offering.
In total, Contreras threw 17 pitches and 10 for strikes.
