Default *Official* 4-25 What NFL Draft? SOX 5 RAYS 2 Postgamer

Nice job by Sale to pitch around the walks.

Credit to Dunn for clobbering a big two-run tater to pad the lead.

look who raised his BA over .100 today!

apart from the walks, Sale looked good today going seven innings.

Nice bullpen work, too.

Also: Gillespie was safe.

Sale a little shaky with command, but dug his heels in and got 'er done.

Yeah, I know I'm off a day but....

To his credit also, I didn't see his 4th AB but his first 3 including the HR were hard hit balls.

Only 7 hits, but they made them count. Flowers has definitely come back to earth at the plate.

Sox have not won 3 in a row this season, a goal to shoot for with Jake on the mound tomorrow night.

They try to win three straight for the first time this season tomorrow night.

2-5 tonight with RISP has jumped the season average up to .170. WOO HOO!

Hey it's progress...

Still aren't hitting well overall.

Nothing to complain about here. Wins are precious and it just feels good to get a few in a row. Hopefully Peavy keeps it rolling and hopefully Dunn has turned a corner that can get him back to what he was doing last season.

Kepp is starting to come up with some nice hits for us as well.

TWTW.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to watch any sports draft, and that was before I heard a football writer in San Francisco today insist that the NFL draft was something that would should be shown to enemy combatants during interrogations. Fortunately, the sam couldn't be said of the White Sox tonight.

A pretty good game. As with most wins, it started with the pitching. Sale got off to a bit of a slow start, and he walked too many. But after the Sox got to Hellickson for three quick runs of their own, he was in control. The Sox struck out too much once again. But while they didn't make the most out of their opportunites, they came close.

Tonight's Dunn home run might have been as big as the Rios home run Wednesday. He seemed to be swinging the bat well tonight and was one of the few White Sox hitters who didn't strike out. The extra two runs probably helped the three in the first stand up.

Turning the game over the bullpen for only two innings with a three-run lead feels like a winning formula. And it's nice to see the bullpen throwing strikes. Nice to see another two-hit game from Keppinger, who appears to be coming around offensively. Generally, I have to feel good about whent the White Sox get the game winning hit with one out in the first.

The Sox had their ace going. It's really the sort of win you should have a right to expect. But tonight it feels especially nice not to be disappointed.

We should just pepper every postgame thread with Major League references/clips until the Sox turn things around.

Great to win.

"TWTW" sucks.

It's pretty much impossible for me every time the Sox win to not picture the Japanese groundskeepers. 'They're still ****ty'.

The Sox have the pitching to compete in the American League. They'd win more games with just average offensive production.

Tonight, they got average offensive production. And they won.
