The Dodgers loaded the bases in the top of the third on singles by Blake DeWitt and Rafael Furcal and a walk by Orlando Hudson, bringing up Manny Ramirez with one out. The split White Sox-Dodgers crowd here at the spitting camel ranch got on its feet, half booing loudly, half cheering wildly.
The kind of moment Manny lives for right? And after ripping crisp singles in his last four at-bats, it looked like White Sox starter Gavin Floyd was in some trouble.
Instead, Floyd got Ramirez to ground into a 4-6-3 double play to end the inning, shattering his bat in the process, and running his broken-bat count to three in just three innings of work. Earlier he shattered two of Andre Ethier’s bats.
