On Thursday, the White Sox will have their first off day since May 12. When they resume playing on Friday, they’ll try to climb up the standings with start a 10-game homestand.

“Its a good start,” Konerko said of sweeping the Red Sox. “And we just have to make sure we don’t lose this momentum on the off day.”
