Over his past 12 games, covering 10 2/3 innings, Linebrink has allowed 10 runs on nine walks and 15 hits. But the White Sox aren’t giving up on their talented setup man, just as they didn’t flinch on Monday after the Royals rallied against Linebrink in the eighth.
“He’ll be fine,” said Pierzynski. “We have all the confidence in the world in him. If we have a lead in the eighth inning [on Tuesday], he’ll be out there again.”
Can’t you stop at the first sentence A.J.?
