Class dispatches after a long night at U.S. Cellular Field

Apologies to 1220, but our classroom this week was a bit more spacious and had a better view.

Students spent Tuesday night (and part of Wednesday morning) covering the White Sox’ 6-5 loss to the Houston Astros in 11 innings at U.S. Cellular Field. The game lasted near four hours and featured several plot twists, but Houston’s bullpen proved to a a bit better as the Sox squandered several opportunities to win the game.

We attended manager Robin Ventura’s post-game news conference, and Juan Pimiento also scored an interview with Sox left-hander Jose Quintana, a fellow native of Colombia.

Each student told the story of the game through a social media platform. The files were due 90 minutes after the game ended.

Here’s the rundown:

It was a long night, but a productive night for all. A special thanks to Bob Beghtol and the White Sox for allowing us in their house.
