Pierre, Beckham lead White Sox to 6-4 win in 10 innings

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Who needs Dayan Viciedo when you have Juan Pierre?
Wall-bashing, 3-for-5 with a sacrifice fly and three RBI guy Juan Pierre, the much maligned left fielder whom manager Ozzie Guillen has stood by through thick and mostly thin?
Pierre even stole a base in the White Sox' 6-4 come-from-behind victory in 10 innings against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday. For at least a day, and for this series - in which the former Rockie went 7-for-13 to help the Sox take two of three and get within two games of .500 - Pierre kept his critics at arm's length.
So did Gordon Beckham, next in line behind Pierre on the talk-show flogging circuit. Beckham homered to right center in the seventh inning to get the Sox within 4-2 and singled in a run in the eighth shortly before Pierre's sac fly tied it.
