The White Sox took this game by a score of 4 to 2 against the Oakland Athletics. The Sox scored 1 in the third,2 in the fourth, and 1 in the eighth, with Oakland scoring 1 in the third,1 in the seventh.
Alex Rios and Tyler Flowers both hit home runs and Hector Santiago got to the seventh inning before the bullpen was hearing the phone ring to get moving. Conor Gillaspie had a massive day at third base and even drove in a run.
Paul Konerko talked about how they felt, the boys had hit rock bottom and there could be more to go. There have been some moments that it has gotten so bad that you realize that you have to get back to basics, You find a way to pick yourself and your team back up because it’s all you have. We have fought hard to find positive things, treat each other well even with it going bad at some point. Paul’s final point was that they KNOW they are not out of the woods by any means but we was a good step in the right direction.
Tomorrow started a three game series with the Toronto Blue Jays coming to U.S Cellular Field. The Blue Jays are currently 27 – 35 and will have R.A Dickey on the mound.
The Sox are giving the mound keys to Dylan Axelrod who is 3 – 4 with an ERA of 3.73.
See you on the field
