Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin in with a new blog on the Sox starting the first game of a 3 game set with the Twinkies in the dreaded Metrodome. The Sox came into this game losing a slugfest to the Indians 10-8 thursday afternoon. They had Johnny Danks on the mound  as he looked to extend his 19 inning scorless streak and go to two games above .500 in his record. The game started off justs like the last one left off as Danks walked the first 4 batters of the game and put the Sox in an early 4-0 hole.The Sox then made a comback and tied it up in the 6th Inning off a Sac fly by Chris Getz. Thats when the little Twinkies got back to their old tricks to take a hold of this critical game.After a leadoff walk that eventually got to third base off back to back steals(traditional Minnesota Twins baseball) Joe Mauer gave the Twinkies the lead 5-4.

Then just when you thought the game would stay there the Twins did more typical Twins moves when Carlos Gomez a had successful bunt single off Bobby Jenks in the 8th inning with 2 outs to make it a 6-4 game.

Then the Twinkies lights out closer Joe Nathan came in a extended his streak of no runs allowed since May 15th as he took out the Sox lineup 1,2,3 to get his 23rd save of the year.
