Great pitching, Timely hitting…thats how you win. Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in during a very shocking but enjoyable 5-game win streak for the Sox. The Sox came into this game knowing that the Detroit Tigers had already lost to Oakland earlier in the day and could gain some ground on the division leaders. Action picked up in the 6th for the Sox as Ramon Castro hit his 2nd HR of the season right to right field and giving the Sox a 4-1 lead. The Indians offense never did get on track as Jose Contreras pitched another great outing throwing 8 innings only giving up 2 runs with 6 strikeouts and is quickly looking like the Jose of old.
The Sox will try to extend their streak right into KC as we will open up a 4 game set against the Royals tonight with Mark Buerhle on the bump, with Detroit goin to the Dome to play the Twinkies if the Sox can take 3 outta 4 or take a split they can potentially cut the lead to 1 game or even tie for first. So before All-Star break the Sox will play the Royals the next 4 days then head home to play Cleveland again then finish up the first half on the season with our 1st 3 game set in the dreaded Metrodome against the Twins.
I’m hoping that JD & Paulie wont get robbed & take there rightful place as AL All-Stars and I also think that Buerhle deserves a trip too but i have voted and so should you todays the last day but until next time….PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
