Rays of Hope

May 29 at Tampa Bay


Today's Sox Crew:
Lumberjacks
The Sox continue to put a fierce amount of lumber on the ball.

Short Take:   Sox stay red-hot and sting the Rays for their seventh win in a row.

Simply put, the White Sox are red-hot! After their awesome display of offense in the sweep of the crappy Indians over the weekend, two games on the road against Tampa Bay would be a good test for this team. After Sale's incredible 15 strikeout performance on Monday, the Sox have passed the test with flying colors. Phil Humber outdueled "Big Game" James Shields to win his first game in a month, and the Sox offense continues to shine as the Sox stung the Rays 7-2 on Tuesday.

With the win, the Sox are in first place by a half game over Cleveland. The White Sox have now won seven in a row and are 12-1 in their last 13 games. Phil Humber had a nice outing, throwing seven innings of five hit ball, allowing only two runs, a walk, and five strikeouts.

The game would remain scoreless until the bottom of the fourth. After walking Matt Joyce, Humber allowed a two-run homer to newly acquired Hideki Matsui to put Tampa Bay up 2-0.

After an Alexei Ramirez RBI single cut the Tampa lead to 2-1 in the top of the fifth, the Sox offense would open it up in the top of the sixth.

Adam Dunn got it started with a leadoff walk. Alex Rios and A.J. Pierzynski followed with singles to score Dunn to tie the game at two. The Sox continued to put pressure on James Shields with RBI singles by Dayan Viciedo and Orlando Hudson, along with a run-scoring double from Alexei Ramirez. The five-run outburst put the Sox up 6-2.

The Tank put the final stamp on the night with a long 436-foot homer to left in the top of the eighth off of Tampa reliever Cesar Ramos. Viciedo now has 12 RBI's in his last 6 games.

On Wednesday, May 30, the Sox will try to sweep the series in Tampa Bay and extend the current win streak to eight. Jose Quintana (1-0, 1.54 ERA) goes for the Sox against Alex Cobb (2-0, 2.25 ERA). Game starts at 1:10 EST and can be seen on WGN.
