Sox say goodbye to Kustok in their own personal way

On Friday night, Chicago had to say goodbye to Sarah Kustok, who reported at her final game for Comcast SportsNet when the White Sox hosted the Angels.

After Alex Rios' walk-off home run in the 10th inning solidified his team's victory, the White Sox had their own way of wishing her luck on her future endeavors, showing just how much they'll miss her when she leaves the Windy City.

AJ Pierzynski planned a sneak attack on Kustok, pieing her in the face with shaving cream during her post-game interview with Alex Rios. When asked about the prank after the game, Pierzynski joked about what he has in store for Kustok after she promised to get him back for the on-field stunt.

"She deserves it for leaving us on such short notice, especially without telling anybody," Pierzynski joked. "I hope she enjoyed it and now when she goes over to the Yankees I'm gonna call CC Sabathia and tell him all the bad stuff about her."

Kustok is heading to New York to work for the Yankees Entertainment and Sports (YES) Network, covering the Brooklyn Nets and Yankees. As difficult as it is to have to say goodbye, we wish her all the best and appreciate all she's brought to the entire Comcast SportsNet team.
