Let’s Go White Sox!!!!
Another big win!!! Gordon Beckham came through with the BIG hit. 12-games over .500 for the first time this year. Just keep winning!!
"I didn’t expect myself to be throwing hard the entire season, especially later on getting into August and September," Sale said. "But for right now, it’s just finding a way. Whatever I’ve got on a given day, you’ve got to go out there and keep pitching, You can’t get down on yourself on days where you might not have your best stuff."
White Sox win big (12-5) over the Twins. De Aza, Youkilis, Dunn and Rios had three hits apiece and Sale had another great pitching performance.
The Indians lost so the Sox are now 2.5 games up.
Even though Robin Ventura spelled his name wrong on the lineup sheet, Youkilis will bat second. He will wear #20 after Jordan Danks gave it up for him. Beckham will drop down to #9 in the batting order.
Game 1: Jake Peavy (6-3 2.74 ERA) vs. Francisco Liriano (1-7 5.74 ERA)
Game 2: Gavin Floyd (5-7 5.20 ERA) vs. Liam Hendriks (0-4 7.39 ERA)
