    Needed that win to get some momentum heading home. Bring on the Flubs.

    This is the Mohoney-advanced-metrics-OPS-three-true-outcome-all-or-nothing White Sox offense. Get shut down one day, score ten runs the next. This has changed considerably from the first half of the season when home runs weren't needed as much to score a win.

      4 homers for the Sox, this game should have been a cakewalk but was too close for comfort as Kopech tried to give it away, nice work by the rest of the bullpen.

      Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

        7-7 on "The Gauntlet Tour." I was assured there would be no complaining if they went 7-7! The Sox were non-competitive in only two of those losses (one in Tampa and one against Oakland). This stretch confirmed (to me) that the Sox can beat any team in the playoffs. Looking forward to Sox-tober.

          Unless I'm miscounting the Sox just finished "THE GAUNTLET" 7-7.

          I'll take it. Nice late innings from the bullpen after Kopech melted down and Tony let him.

          lots of lumber too...

            Other than Michael Kopech having a rough outing, the team played great all around today. Nice to see Rodon back on the bump, Kimbrel shutting the door in the 9th. Offense brought out the lumber. I thought a crucial part of today's game was Ryan Tepera coming out in the 7th and putting a bucket of ice water on the Jays offense quickly. You could feel the momentum of the game shift when Semien cut the lead to 9-7 and the Sox went out in order in the top part of the 7th. He has been a big addition to the pen for us.

            Let's pull off the "double sweep" of the Cubs this season.

              It's been a roller coaster two weeks. Given the inconsistent offense and the bullpen blow-ups (will the real Michael Kopech please stand up?) for them to go 7-7 running the gauntlet is note worthy.

              It does seem to me though they have been giving up a lot of two out hits/runs.

              Hopefully they can string together another good series against the Cubs starting Friday.

              Next eight games are against teams with losing records, they need to make some hay in that stretch.

                  That felt like a huge win to finish this tough stretch 7-7. All 4 starting pitchers were good against a tough Blue Jays offense. Home now against the Cubs and Pirates need to win at least 4 of the 5. Keuchel better step up tomorrow he's been really bad lately. Hopefully we see the return of Grandal tomorrow too.

                    The Cubs seem like a good team for Dallas Kuechel to get back on track. Their lineup is filled with a lot of anxious AAA type hitters right now and Keuchel is pretty good at inviting inexperienced hitters to chase stuff out of the zone. Hopefully, we'll see a lot of 6-3 and 4-3 ground outs tomorrow.

                      Yes, 7-7 record and it seemed we could never score at times but we scored 66 total runs while the opponents scored 65 (again, about equal) in this stretch.

                        7-7 is far better than i could have hoped for before that stretch of games began . nice to see the offense awaken from it's recent slumber . Cesar Hernandez throwing some leather . Kimbrel looked much more comfortable pitching the 9th.

                          This table shows the Sox current head-to-head record, and runs scored against and allowed to, every opponent. The data comes from Baseball Reference and I’ve updated the record against Toronto to reflect today’s win.

                          As you can see, the only teams against whom the Sox have a losing record are the Astros, Angels, Brewers, and Yankees.

                          Let’s fatten up our record against the Cubs, Pirates, and Royals.

                            I was very critical of Tepera after his first few games with us but he has become one of our more reliable options out of the pen. Really nice inning from Crochet too. Wondering if we can find enough offensive output against quality starters in the postseason if we get in. Some of the games over this stretch where the starters gave up only a run and we couldn't win still hurt. All about getting hot at the right time I suppose.

                              Glad they won the game after the rocky 6th inning. Benetti said something about maybe Kopech was tipping his pitches, since it seemed the Jays were teeing off on his breaking stuff.

                              A good way to finish the last stretch against playoff teams.

                              On to the Cubs.
