Another win! And Dylan Axelrod got his first win of the season! Three cheers all around! Yes, you read that correctly. The Sox beat the Twins 9-4 this afternoon and took the series. Behind some relatively solid pitching and three spectacular home runs, the Sox put on a show. » Continue reading “Adam Dunn and Home Runs Lead White Sox to Victory”
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 Sox came home for a ten-game homestand, and they didn’t get off to the greatest start. Friday night’s game was postponed due to the weather, and Saturday afternoon’s game didn’t quite go their way, as they lost to the Twins 2-1 in ten innings.
Pitching had a little bit of a rough day today. Jake Peavy started for the Sox, and he had a great outing. He lasted seven innings, giving up one run on six hits and four walks. He also struck out nine. » Continue reading “Peavy’s Good Start Wasted as White Sox Lose in Extras”
So Chris Sale didn’t have it today. As usual, the offense not around. Mr. Kate Upton was pitching in Minnesota.
It all results in a tragic number of three. There is still hope, though it grows fainter with each passing game. With the latest loss, all I hear is the following song’s chorus.

What happened tonight? Well, the Twins did the Sox a favor and beat the Tigers. Magic (or Tragic depending on your view) number remains at five games. The Sox still are pretty abysmal with RISP scoring, but they did eek out just enough runs tonight to get a win and cut the lead the Tigers have to just one game. Given how this season has gone, it would be so Tigers and Sox to end up tied in a couple of days. » Continue reading “There Is Hope! White Sox 3 Rays 1″
Yes, White Sox, let’s keep playing horribly. That’s just what you need to get into the postseason. Especially since the Tigers won this afternoon. Unfortunately, the Sox continued to play like crap and lost to the Rays, 3-2. » Continue reading “Falling Further Out”

Dirt Bag actually got some run support. As in nine runs of it today in the Sox’s 9-2 win over the Twins. The Sox also ended up taking the season series from the them with winning 14 of the games with today’s sweep. » Continue reading “Maybe They DO Want It: White Sox 9 Twins 2″
It is official now. Both the Indians and Twins have been eliminated from post season play. But of course, that is really not the big news of the day. No, that is that the Sox won and for the moment have a 1.5 game lead over the Tigers who will begin play against the Indians shortly. » Continue reading “The High Wire: White Sox 5 Twins 3″
