It's kinda nice that Rios has rediscovered right field and right center. There are a lot of hits out there.

The Sox win at home?

That's unpossible!

Gavin with his 4th solid performance in a row (did load the bases in the 2nd and the 8th with less than 2 outs, and we got out of both of them without surrendering a run), Dunn equals his HR total from last year AND DOESN'T STRIKE OUT, and some nice hitting from Beckham and Rios in clutch situations.

And it was a really nice day outside today.

Life is good.

Nice win, even better to see Dunn stop his streak of consecutive games with a strike out dating back to last year. Just read that today, can't remember if it was in the Sun-Times or the Tribune but it was the record as far as anyone could tell.

Per Thursday's SunTimes, the record is Bill Stoneman with 37 games in '71-72. Dunn is stopped at 36 games.

Excellent all-around win. Gavin made the right pitches, they executed greatly tonight and took advantage of miscues, the Escobar stolen base and advancing to third, while De Aza drove him in, stuck out the most. I also like the way Beckham has been handling the bat.

Nice (mostly) comfortable win, against a team that pretty much owned the Sox at the Cell last year. :bandance:

To win the division, you've gotta paste the crap teams. With almost half the schedule done with the Tribe and Tigers, we need to really gain lots of ground with these games against KC and Minnesota. The Sox did just that for a night...Let it continue tomorrow.

Bill Stoneman the pitcher? Interesting. Considering he's a pitcher I don't know if that should really count :smile: but either way Dunn ending it is good for everyone.

Life is good.

When your complaint with the starter is that he was forced to pitch out of a bases-laded, one out jam to keep the game scoreless, you really don't have any complaints. Actuall, the Whtie Sox pitched out of two such jams in recording the shutout. Meanwhile, the first four runs for the White Sox came with two outs -- a solo home run, a single after a single and a stolen base with two out and none on, and a two-run triple.

The first three hitters in the White Sox lineup tonight outhit the Royals. Fortunately, it wasn't an issue that the Royals outhit the last six hitters in the Sox lineup (although that was where they found the two-out, two-run triple). An impressive outing by Floyd even if he couldn't get through the eighth.

It was interesting that the Royals briought in a southpaw releiver to face Dunn with the game seeming out of hand and still walked him. You would think in the first game of the series they would have stayed with the righty and wait for a tighter situation instead of giving Dunn a chance for essentially a free look at him. Maybe that will benefit the Sox later this weekend.

A solid win. Beckham has hit the ball better since Cleveland. Floyd has been fine. I still don't know if the hitting is good enough to get on a long streak. But they'll try.

Starting pitching with Floyd, Sale and Peavy will be good for stopping long streaks of losing.

Beckham and Rios hitting the ball to RF is a sign of hope.

I don't care about the K's if he produces like he has. Does anyone?

The staff is excellent. The lineup is subpar.

Finally! I leave to go to a movie and come back and they've won. Looks like I've broken my weekend curse of leaving the house with the Sox in the lead and then having them lose when I came home.

Not all K's are equal. I don't care about bases empty, 2-out K's. K's with RISP and less than 2 outs = :angry:.

Dunn holds the record for position players.

Every time I see an outside pitch to Rios, I think scouting in baseball isn't taken seriously. He's owned the outside of the plate all year. Why would a pitcher even go out there? He doesn't pull the ball much anymore. I hope the rest of the league doesn't catch on.

Nice win. Would be great if Gordo could find a home hitting 2nd,giving the Sox a nice top 6 in the lineup with DeAza,Gordo,Dunn,PK,AJ and Alex...then get Dayan going,and Alex has his summer resurgance and boom!..you got a lineup. I see where Inge has 12 RBIs in his 5 games for Oakland,with 4 homers....he could have helped at third.

No doubt someone would. Grounding out is so much more grindy.

Here's something a strikeout can't do:Hit into a double play.

The overwhelming advantage of possibly scoring or moving runners along when hitting the ball in play vs. striking out so far outweighs the risk of hitting into a double play it is not even worth discussing. Having to even type that sentence is baffling. If a player ever is given the choice between the two, he obviously should take hitting the ball in play every time. Obviously.
