DENVER — Ozzie Guillen was the first one in the White Sox clubhouse after the Colorado Rockies defeated his team 3-2 in 13 innings on Tuesday night. The Rockies’ Troy Tulowitzki, taking a page from Enos “Country” Slaughter, scored from first on a single to win the game and put Guillen in a foul mood.

“I was kind of glad,” said Guillen, after watching his team waste scoring opportunities in the first four innings, then go inept offensively after that. “Because I was suffering there with my coaches. We had opportunities. F— it, get the game over with and we go home and hopefully we get it tomorrow. It was the worst game we played all year long. We had chances over and over and over but we didn’t take advantage. You do that over and again, the baseball gods get you.”

Slaughter’s well known “mad dash” was made during the seventh game of the 1946 World Series. He scored from first base for the go-ahead run for the Cardinals against the Boston Red Sox.
