Nice to see the boys have not quit taking a series from a tough team.

Taking two of three in two consecutive series against first-place teams, the Sox have been playing much better baseball. Unfortunately, the series bookended losing two of three extra-inning games in Philadelphia.

The Braves in the last two games looked like the White Sox in a lot of their losses this year, but the defense has shown up strong, playing as it is capable. Countless times this year I've wondered how the Sox can't score with a runner on third, even the bases loaded and no one out, and today the Braves wasted more scoring opportunites than the Sox had all day.

After a two-out RBI single to the left side of second by Dunn, something I would have liked to see more of this year, the difference offensively was Rios, once putting a ball in play over a drawn-in infield and also scoring after reach first without any hits behind him, stealing second and advancing on two fly balls.

But, of course, three runs were enough today because Keppinger saved two with a great play at second and Wells saved two with a catch in the eighth. As has been the case with the Sox sometimes before the break, wasting opportunities involved strong defense by the opposition. It's nice to see some of that from the Sxo in a season where the defense has provided more scoring opportunites than they have saved.

It must have been a fun day on the banks of the Dan Ryan.

It would be nice if that solid defense they had most of last year would return. As for today, it was to me vintage Sox baseball. Good pitching, solid defense and timely hitting. Always welcome and especially so this year.

This is the exact kind of game from the Braves WSI would want Greg Walker fired for!

Hawk and Stone made a point of commenting on the Braves organization and how they are stellar at scouting their own talent, knowing their own personnel on the farm and in the Show and really understanding what they can and can't do...

Which brings me to Casper Wells vs Viciedo in left.. How many games have been lost by having a butcher in LF this year? That game today was an "L" with Viciedo in LF ..

I loved that the Sox scoreboard was not wide enough to show his entire name (before it went out in the 7th or 8th inning). So, he was Terdoslav today.

The Sox throw leather and the other team squanders opportunities?

Must be Backwards Day.

Yeah, the Braves played a classic Walkerball game. I enjoyed being on the other side of one of those.

Nice day at the ballpark. I've been lucky this season -- the Sox have won more than they've lost with me in attendance. I'm glad Quintana got a win on a day where he struggled. He's had a number of games over the last two years where he pitched well and had nothing to show for it.

Me no like White Sox. They catch ball and never make baserunning blunders.

Yes it was! and I am loving your creative use of images...what a catch by Casper Wells! The Keppinger diving play was terrific as well. I hardly ever tune in for web gems but did so last night to see both of these again.

October26 - Twenty-SEVEN years ago, I married my husband on October 26. Since that day, we have been blessed with a wonderful family. 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!
