After suffering a seven-game losing streak, the Chicago White Sox are back. And they are back in style.
Well sort of.
The White Sox took the series from the Mets in New York City by winning game three on Wednesday. They did it in a memorable way.
Relief pitcher Matt Albers doubled in the 13th inning and then eventually scored on a sacrifice to give the White Sox a 2-1 win:
It was Albers first hit since 2007 but it gets even better. He pitched the bottom of the 13th inning to record the win, becoming the first White Sox pitcher to achieve that since 1966:
Albers: 1st #WhiteSox pitcher to score GW run & get W in extra innings since Bob Locker 8/7/1966. Scored to make it 6-5 in 10th, Sox won 9-8

While the achievement was great, the best part was watching Albers run the bases.
