Can You Say “10 in a Row!”?

June 25 vs. Cubs


Immunity:
Everybody
Exiled:
Nobody

This team is a cohesive unit right now, playing on all cylinders, with one goal. Keep it going.

Short Take:  The Sox defeat the Cubs for the third time in four games this year while matching their longest winning streak since 1976. Go, Go, Go White Sox!

The White Sox are now officially the hottest team in baseball. They can do no wrong. The starting pitching has been lights-out for the past two weeks, the defense has been stellar, and the hitting has been timely. Friday was a continuation of that momentum, as the Sox shut-out their crosstown rivals by a score of 6-0. Before we get to the highlights of the game, lets review where the Sox are:

The win on Friday for the Sox was their 10th in a row, and their 14th out of the last 15 games. The Sox have 16 wins in June so far, and their all-time record for the month is 22 wins (set in 1961). They have five more games this month to play, so there’s a chance they may eclipse the 2000 White Sox June total of 20 wins and tie the ‘64 and ‘56 Sox with 21 wins. The 10-game winning streak is the longest since the ‘76 season. If they are able to extend it to 11 games, it will be the longest since 1961. The win yesterday moves the Sox to, amazingly, 1.5 games within the lead of the AL Central, held by the Minnesota Twins (and only 1.0 game behind the 2nd place Tigers).

On Friday, Carlos Zambrano got the start for the Northside franchise. After the White Sox quickly put a four-spot up in the bottom of the first, Zambozo went after his good-spirited teammate D-Lee in the dugout and deservedly had himself removed from the dugout by Sweet Lou. Those antics should not overshadow the play on the field by the Sox though. Juan Pierre lead off the game with a hard double down the line (something definitely out of the reach of D-Lee). Alex Rios drove him in with a hard double of his own. After Pauly (putting MVP-like numbers up so far this season) reached base on a single, Carlos Quentin tomahawked a 3-run line shot homerun into the leftfield bleachers to give the Sox a quick 4-0 lead.

Jake Peavy pitched a phenomenal game for the Pale Hose. The Flubs couldn’t touch his fastball and looked like a minor league team at the plate. Peavy went seven strong innings, allowing only three hits and two walks while striking out nine. The Sox tacked on some insurance runs in the 5th and 6th innings, both courtesy of struggling Gordon Beckham. In the 5th, Bacon connected for his first homer since April 11th. In the 6th, the Sox loaded the bases, and Gordon’s sac fly to leftfield scored a hustling TCQ from 3rd to bump the score to 6-0.

With the Sox bullpen as fabulous as it has been lately, the Cubs had no chance in the late innings. Sergio Santos and Tony Pena got some work in the 8th and 9th, respectively, only allowing one base runner on a Santos walk. Peavy earns the win (7-5), Zambozo earns the loss (3-6) and an indefinite suspension by the Chicago National League Ballclub, and the Sox earn the respect of all Chicago baseball fans. One more victory in the next two games clinches the BP Cup, but there’s no doubt this reinvigorated Sox club has their eyes on a much bigger prize…one that actually matters.
