Sox Win Again, Move Into Second

This was a great win for the White Sox today. A great outing out of Buehrle coupled with some clutch hitting late. Also, let us not forget the nice day by the bullpen as Linebrink and Jenks both brought it tonight.

I had a bad feeling as this game progressed because of the continued struggles with people on third base. But things turned around and beside Brian Anderson the hitting was very clutch tonight. My favorite inning of the game was the 8th when the Sox went up there an put 2 bunts down both of which were botched by the Royals and led to the go-ahead run. The Sox are continuing to play much better baseball and it's really starting to shine through. They have now won the first 2 games of each of the last 4 series and have a 4th consecutive sweep opportunity tomorrow. Also, the rest of the AL Central has really been struggling. The Sox are now just 4 games back of the division leading Tigers and the Sox actually lead the Royals and Twinks by half a game. Who would have thought that a few weeks ago.

Tomorrow is Greinke day for the Royals, so we are looking at a real tough one for the Sox. Greinke has been nasty against the entire league but he's been especially good against the White Sox. He's recorded 17 K's allowing just 12 baserunners and no runs in 15 innings so far against the Sox. Really going to be tough for the Sox, but they have to finish a sweep off at some point right? Maybe not.
