Bobby Jenks comes up big for worn out White Sox bullpen

Aug 23, 2010, 12:18 PM EDT

With the White Sox’s pitching staff in shambles after playing a pair of extra-inning games Saturday, manager Ozzie Guillen used Bobby Jenks in a very uncharacteristic way yesterday.
Jenks was brought into the game in the seventh inning for the first time since August 20, 2005 and then proceeded to throw three full innings, which ties a career-high set twice in that same 2005 season.
His longest outing this season was 1.1 innings and Jenks had worked more than two innings just three times in 290 total appearances since 2005, including none since 2008.
Despite the unusual workload he did a great job, holding the Royals scoreless while allowing just one hit and striking out four, but the White Sox lost anyway when Jenks exited after throwing 42 pitches and Scott Linebrink gave up a walk-off single to Jason Kendall in the 10th.
Chicago has today off to regroup.

    Yep, but they still lost, thanks to Joe West.
