Pitching Staff – Chris Sale
Playing Staff – De Aza, Ramirez, Rios, Dunn, Konerko, Wells, Keppinger, Viciedo, Tekotte, Gillaspie, Beckham, Phegley
Chris pitched a complete game and there was NO OFFENCE to back him up. It is really sad that when the pitcher has an amazing outing that we can not do anything to help him.
White Sox – 2 Royals – 4 (in twelve inning)

Final in the series was Royals 4 and White Sox 2. Josh Phegley committed his first professional error so I am hoping that he got that out of his system. Hector had a good outing but the offence was not able to lend any support. There were some really bright spots along the way but I really think that the looming trade deadline is really bothering the boys. Paul Konerko was quoted as basically saying We KNOW we are SH*T right now. The looming trade deadline is not helping.
OK, enough of my venting and frustrations all. The Cleveland Indians come to The Cell for a four game series. John Danks and Jake Peavy are the opening pitchers for games one and two of the series.
See you on the field
