April 27 at Toronto


Toon Squad Update:

The Sox looked cute at first, but unleashed their attacks when the time called for it.

Short Take:   Three runs in the seventh allow Jose Quintana to depart with ease after doing his part in a series sweep of the Blue Jays.

Not to be a downer, but there will come a time when the White Sox lose again. It's difficult to win 16 of 22 every stretch of the season and even more difficult to maintain the best record in the American League. For now though, we'll bask in the glory that is the early showing by the 2016 version of the Pale Hose. Their latest victory Wednesday also clinched a series sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays by a 4-0 final.

Jose Quintana and Marco Estrada kept the scoreboard clean for six innings. Quintana did his best 2015 Chris Sale impression by striking out 10 and walking just three on 104 pitches. A fine effort, but no run support represented a familiar refrain. Would he have another no-decision or loss that wasn't his fault?

Heck no! The Sox finally got to Estrada in the seventh, a time when they've had a knack for scoring runs of late. Todd Frazier led off with a single, Brett Lawrie walked two hitters later and with two outs, Dioner Navarro (yes, him) tripled in both runners. Estrada left after that, but all Austin Jackson did was hit a triple of his own, bringing home Navarro. Perhaps that was all John Gibbons could stand for this series as he proceeded to get himself tossed right after.

In the eighth, Jose Abreu singled to lead off and eventually scored on Avisail Garcia's single. That came in the middle of a lockdown effort by the Sox bullpen. Zach Duke and Nate Jones each threw perfect innings and even though it wasn't a save situation, David Robertson came on for the ninth to pitch his own spotless frame. Thus, the first Sox sweep in Toronto since 2005 was complete.

It's been a long time since we've been able to feel so good about this team. Almost every night, we can look forward to excellent pitching, smart, effective defense and an offense that's starting to come around. Perhaps the great season they were supposed to have last year simply came a year late. Regardless, that feeling of dread that has come over us way too often this decade has subsided, at least for the moment.

The hot Sox open their next series in Baltimore Thursday. John Danks will get his latest chance to show he can still play a key role in what's quickly becoming a big year. If he can't outpitch Tyler Wilson, it'll be time for the front office to consider some tough options for him. Gametime is 6:05.

That's all folks:
 The Blue Jays were struck by a force so powerful so suddenly, they went blasting off again.
