A winning streak.
What happens if we roll off 10 in a row, do we keep this cast of characters?

Quintana good, Lindstrom good, Crain good, Reed good, and Sox offense was just good enough today.

Kudos to Jesse Crain for pitching out of a jam in the 8th after Rios dropped that ball.

Back to back Sox wins in KC? I'll take it!

Keep on winning, White Sox!

Then, on October 26, 2005, when the baseball gods bestowed their good fortunes upon us, we saw the White Sox win the World Series. An incredibly talented team of grinders made every Sox fan's dream come true. My family and I celebrated with reckless abandon. And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!

Nellie I know your talking with your heart; but in your mind you know we don't have a snowballs chance in hell of winning with this team. I wish like you we did; but if this team finishes 500 it would be quiet a accomplishment. The Sox need help in CF, LF ,and catcher now!!!

I know but I remember the 76 team which won 64 games pulling off 10 in a row at one point.

Just like I said Nellie you are thinking with your heart. That team had a real catcher in Downing a CF in Lemon and still ended up in last place with 97 loses. If this team stays as is they will probably finish with around the same record. Let's go way back and hope they have more of the 59 team in them. One that could field run and play fundamental baseball.

After years of mediocre Sox teams losing to bad KC teams it's nice to return the favor.

And if they don't stay "as is" they will wind up with a worse record because tradeable players will be traded. Oh, poo, it was a nice game to watch and I did because I love baseball and the Sox.

No PTC winner yet, but we're so stunned by two in a row that we've forgotten how this works. The Totally Biased Game Recap is here nonetheless, describing a rare victory.

Calling Downing a real catcher is a bit of a stretch. He wasn't that much better than Flowers defensively, at least in those early years with the White Sox. He started behind the plate in less than half the Sox games, though, and Jim Essian was pretty good defensively, and wasn't much worse than Downing offensive. Chet Lemon was very good too. He needed to be as bad as the Sox pitching was.

Most of the best teams in White Sox history lacked hitting, though. Today's win was a good fundamental win, the sort of win that good White Sox teams tended to convert. If the Sox had taken advantage of similar available opportunities early in the season, this would be a different season. Good things can happen when you don't strike out with runners on first and second and nobody out. Good things can happen when you don't strike out with a runner at third and less than two out. The White Sox only got one hit in the ninth when they took the lead, and that was Viciedo's leadoff single.

The Royals not scoring their one-out triple the previous half-inning cost them the game. Another way to look at it would be Crain preventing the Royals from scoring their one-out triple the previous half-inning set the stage for the Sox to win the game by manufacturing a run. In the stats sheet, Beckham's pinch-hitting appearance looks like a failure, but advancing the runner to third with a fly out where the run could score on another fly out was huge.

These past two victories change nothing.

Great to see Crain continue his streak in spite of the De Aza-Rios debacle.

When Danks pinch-ran in a tie game I expected him to get picked off. He almost did. The guy isn't too bright.

Quintana is a keeper.

I hope Keppinger keeps hitting so we can dump him as soon as possible.
