Build on Last Night

Tonight the Sox have a nice pitching match up. Gavin Floyd vs. Ivan Nova.

Nova has a 7.63 ERA this year and a 1-2 record.

The Sox have got to pick it up offensively if they want to win. Dunn looked much better last night, Konerko is still doing well, and Carlos is the best hitter on the team.

To start scoring more runs, the Sox are going to need one more guy to really step up. Pierre would be probably the perfect scenario, but I would really like to see Rios get going.

Alex is mired by a miserable 1 for 23 streak. But this is a guy who has the talent to have some success.

If Alex can somehow turn into a .300 hitter from this point forward, the Sox will finally have the potent middle of the lineup they had hoped for.

Tack on a bit more from Juan, Beckham, and Alexei, and the Sox will be right back on board where they were at the beginning of the year.

It seems to be slowly coming back. Dunn was the first one to get back on the horse, and now the rest need to get it going.

But if the offense doesn't come around, tonight's the night. Bulls Game 5 at 7, and I heard there's a big game another sport people care about around Chicago. I wouldn't know about it. But yeah, that's on at 9.

Go Sox, Go Bulls.
