White Sox reliever Matt Albers started the eighth inning on Monday with the task of protecting a one-run lead against the Blue Jays. He got two quick outs, striking out Darwin Barney and getting Josh Thole to line out to center field.

Looking to get something going, Ezequiel Carrera dropped a bunt down the first base line. Albers pounced on the ball and threw to first to get Carrera out and end the inning. Albers was pretty pumped up about it, racing off the field into the dugout, seemingly yelling at the top of his lungs. He very enthusiastically accepted high fives from his teammates.

[sarcasm] We’ll await Goose Gossage’s criticism of Albers’ exuberance. Why did he have to show up the Blue Jays’ hitters like that? [/sarcasm]
