Twins 16, White Sox 3: Bullpen achieves self-parody

Five different relievers give up multiple earned runs over four innings in loss to Minnesota

The White Sox held a 3-1 lead after five inning, but Jose Quintana, whose first two innings were interrupted by rain delays of 40 and five minutes, had trouble finding a rhythm. He needed 115 pitches to get through five tough innings, meaning the bullpen had to cover four innings.

Then this happened.

There's no point in itemizing the damage or trying to phrase it into narrative form. It was just brutal, ugly, vile, perverted carnage, so it's better just to go with the summary @New_Lexicon tweeted at me.
