Default ***OFFICIAL*** 7.31 White Sox defeat Detroit 7-4 Postgame

Eaton and Abreu both reached base 5 times. Last time it happened for W Sox was 2010 when Rios & PK did it in an extra inning game.

I see no reason why he shouldnt start the rest of this year. De Aza and Viciedo were showcased and nothing happened. Neither should fit into next years plan, this is a lost year, let Sierra play and see what happens.

7 back in the central, 6 back in the wild card. 5 wins behind Detroit's win total. The July 31st 1997 trade the Sox were 3 1/2 games behind Cleveland.

Are the Sox still sellers or are they now a wait and see?

The non-waiver deadline is gone, so that "choice" is, for the most part, moot. The reality is they were always sellers, and to the extent they actually can, still should be, even solely as salary dumps. No one wanted the Sox' garbage.

Yes, kids, Chris Denorfia was worth more than Dayan Viciedo. Chris Denorfia.

That Jose Abreu is a beast who keeps becoming a better hitter. Especially good to see him take those walks today.

This shouldnt shock anyone that watches Sox games and takes whatever the huckster says with a grain of salt.

Yes. Especially considering they were intentional walks.

Earlier this season they had an awful road trip where they could have won every game and probably should have won most of them. This road trip there were really only two games that were close, including today's game where they pulled away late. This team reminds me a lot of the 1971 team that got better as the season progressed.

It wasn't a great day for Danks, who gave up a 3-0 lead. Control was a big issue, obviously. The Tigers answered the White Sox three-run inning with two runs on only one hit. If he were sharper with his control, he probably would have been able to use more of the plate and might not have given up the two solo homers that put the Sox behind.

Abreu had a strong day. One might wonder what he would have done if Eaton hadn't gone to third on the Ramirez hit off of Soria that led to his first intentional walk. On one hand, Soria was nearly unhittable. The only hit he allowed in his inning was the Ramirez single. One the other hand, he gave the go-ahead run with his wildness. Eaton reach first after striking out on a wild pitch. The intentional walk set up the game-winning RBI for Konerko when Soria hit him.

Later the double by Ramirez that drove in the final Sox run took the bat out of Abreu's hands again by leaving first base open. As it turned out, as big a day as Abreu had, getting on base five times in five appearances with five total bases on three hits, he neither scored nor drove in any runs because he never got to hit with anyone on base. Twice when Ramirez hit into double plays, Abreu followed with hits. Twice when Ramirez got hits and ended up at second, Abreu was intentionally walked. When that happens on a getaway-day win, it doesn't feel at all frustrating.

Petricka, who hasn't done so much closing, now has as many saves as Lindstrom, who was the exclusive closer until he was injured in May. He actually saved his first game in Kansas City the night Lindstrom went down. Petricka's only blown save came in middle relief, on a seventh-inning wild pitch against the Yankees that allowed the first of two inherited runners to score in the win that Dunn ended with a two-run homer.

Lindstrom had six saves in nine last-inning opportunities. He and Belisario have blown seven last inning leads. As a team, the Sox have saved 24 games, including today's.

7 runs on 16 hits for the Sox today. That's a whole bunch o' stranded runners but, a win is a win. Adam Eaton has also been on a tear since the all star break. Really nice trade by Hahn by flipping a #5 quality starter in Hector Santiago for a young quality everyday CF and leadoff man.

It's nice to see the Sox playing hard and not be mathematically out of it. Extremely unlikely that they sneak into the race but they are still in "you never know" territory if they can go on a hot streak. Last year at this time, a hot streak would have only gotten us to 20 games under .500 instead of 30 games under. With Avisail Garcia coming back soon, potential waiver deals, and September call ups, there is still plenty to keep us watching in the coming days. It's time to come home and beat up on two bad teams in the Twins and Rangers and get back over .500.
