It’s hard to believe that on June 8 the Chicago White Sox were 9-1/2 games out of first place, nine games under .500, and talking about trading away veteran players. Since then the White Sox have lost only twice, once to Detroit and once to the Cubs, giving them a 13-2 record over their last 15 games.
The best news is as they completed their sweep of the Atlanta Braves, who came in with the best record in the National League, this afternoon, they have a weekend series with the free-falling Cubs at the Cell. Not to get ahead of ourselves but I see no reason why the Sox can not win 12 in-a-row at this point, other than the odds and history of this type of win streak occurring. A twelve game win streak has only happened five times in baseball history. Could it happen six?
The best thing about the series against the Braves is the fact that every aspect of the White Sox game was solid; starting and relief pitching, hitting, and fielding. Just perfect all around, and it looks like the team Sox fans were promised is starting to materialize. LET’S GO SOX!!!!
