After receiving the day off Sunday, White Sox leadoff man Alejandro De Aza was back in the lineup for Monday’s matchup against the Indians.
On Sunday the Chicago Bears will beat the St. Louis Rams. I want you to read that statement again. And a third time. Then I want you to say it aloud. Ten times.
Bruce Chen pitched into the seventh inning, Alex Gordon hit a two-run double and the Kansas City Royals beat the AL Central-leading White Sox 3-0 on Wednesday night to snap Chicago’s five-game winning streak.
The White Sox are fighting for your interest. They’re a first place team that can’t seem to draw consistent crowds, and with the onslaught of coverage for the NFL behemoth, the Sox will struggle to draw airtime and newsprint inches.
Steve Stone admitted that Sale appeared to be fatigued in Detroit, but the White Sox have a scheduled day off Thursday, which could benefit the 23-year-old left-hander.
Chris Sale is bringing more pitching joy and awe to this baseball town than anyone since Kid K.
Look no further than the 2005 White Sox to see just how important a pitching staff can be in the playoffs.
Chris Sale struck out 13 in 7 2-3 stellar innings to get his 15th victory, Alex Rios hit a go-ahead homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 2-1 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep in the meeting of division leaders.
Chris Sale struck out 11 in 6 2-3 innings, A.J. Pierzynski had a two-run home run in a five-run sixth inning and Chicago White Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 7-3 on Sunday.
The White Sox are no longer a cute little story, and that’s a good thing.
Chris Sale isn’t on a specific innings count, but it’s becoming obvious the left-hander needs to limit his innings right now if he’s going to be counted on in September.
White Sox fans can be excused for an initially negative reaction to hearing that the Twins’ Francisco Liriano had been acquired late last night for utility man Eduardo Escobar and minor-league starter Pedro Hernandez.
Matt Thornton was a disaster, well before Addison Reed finally arrived to allow the final blast. Thornton’s pitch selection was odd, and he’s been mediocre all season long.
He may be half way across the country, but former White Sox ace Mark Buehrle understands just how special Chris Sale is.
Chris Sale won his eighth straight decision, Adam Dunn homered in his third straight game and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 Sunday.
As of July 10, it looks like I was wrong. My prediction was on the high end of what everyone else was predicting and yet, it wasn’t high enough.
The move allows the left-hander to pitch freely in the All-Star Game, but the team insists the decision wasn’t made for the All-Star Game.
Kevin Youkilis, Adam Dunn and Alex Rios homered in the first inning off Roy Oswalt and All-Star Chris Sale won his 10th game Tuesday night and the Chicago White Sox routed the Texas Rangers 19-2.
So much for the quiet. It was a lot to digest in one Sunday. Thank goodness for the shortened holiday week. And decriminalized marijuana.
Left-hander Chris Sale, first baseman Paul Konerko and designated hitter Adam Dunn were named Sunday to the American League All-Star team.
