A win! A win! Somehow the Sox pulled off another win! I know, I’m surprised too. With the way they’ve been playing, it’s a miracle that they actually score runs. But they did tonight, and I’ve been doing a happy dance. They managed to beat the Twins, 4-2. » Continue reading “White Sox Win? White Sox Win!”
My general tears had to wait at least one more night, as AJ Pierzynski was not in the Rangers’ lineup tonight. No, I’m still not over it, but I’m working on it. The Sox traveled to Texas for a three-game series with the Rangers, and it didn’t start well. The Sox lost, 10-6.
Pitching was once again awful. Jose Quintana didn’t have a bad start. He lasted five innings, giving up four runs on eight hits and a walk. He struck out two, but he also allowed back-to-back home runs to Nelson Cruz and Jeff Baker. Matt Lindstrom came on and pitched a third of an inning. He picked up the loss, as he allowed one run on a walk. » Continue reading “Pitching Fails as White Sox Fall to Rangers”
The White Sox continued their winnings ways with a 5-2 win over the Royals. All runs came courtesy of the long ball. Adam Dunn, Alexei Ramirez, and Dayan Viciedo all hit their first home runs of the season, while Tyler Flowers knocked his second.
There were runs. There were lots and lots of runs. And the White Sox scored them all, beating the Indians 11-0. » Continue reading “Too Little, Too Late”
The Sox had the wonderful opportunity to face Bruce Chen again, and just like every other time, they made him look like a Cy Young winner, dropping this game 3-0. » Continue reading “Cy Chen Strikes Again”

The White Sox had their makeup game with the Detroit Tigers. And it was a good one. The Sox pulled out a 5-4 win, giving them a three-game lead in the division and a magic number of 14. » Continue reading “Taming the Tigers”
This is not by choice, mind you. I was in Los Angeles for a wedding this weekend, and Monday was the day I was coming home. I was midflight when the game started. So obviously that meant I sprung for $5 wifi on my Southwest flight to follow Gameday and Twitter for updates.
Airplane wifi isn’t the greatest connection, so Gameday was slower than watching Paul Konerko run from first to third. Twitter refreshed relatively nicely, so all of you Sox fans who kept me up to speed, thank you! » Continue reading “Homers Power Sox to Win; Or: How Jen Watched the Game on an Airplane”
The White Sox finished their set against the Twins this afternoon. I was lucky enough to be in attendance for my last Sox game of the season. I always hope the Sox will pick up a win, but I was a little worried about them after last night’s debacle which I don’t want to talk about anymore. Luckily for me and the people I was with, they pulled out a 6-2 win! » Continue reading “Alex Rios is the Offense”
