The White Sox scored more runs in last night’s 6-2 pounding of the Arizona Diamondbacks then they had in their previous three. Apparently and thankfully it was just a mini-slump for the Sox offense as the busted out last night including participation from Alex Rios. Yes, that is correct, Alex Rios participated in the fun last night in the desert.
Rios drove in four that included a three-run homer in the top of the eight to give the White Sox some breathing room. They were leading, 3-2, up to that point thanks to Paul Konerko’s 18th home run of the year. The Sox also took their lumps in this one. Carlos Quentin was hit again, for a league leading 16th time this season and second night in a row, John Danks took a liner off his skull but stayed in the game to pitch, and Konerko’s Dad was hit by a foul ball; he too was fine.
I did not know how to react on Friday night when we lost a game to a National league team in late June, I was expecting a 10-game win streak, well maybe that started last night. I mean, well, the Cubs are coming in tomorrow and I believe Big Z is slated to start in one of those games, so the question is will he get out of the first? Let’s go SOX!!!!
