The White Sox sweep the Braves, surge toward the top of the AL Central

No one can stop the Pale Hose

The White Sox completed a three-game sweep of your humble scribe’s Atlanta Braves today, winning 2-0 behind seven shutout innings from Gavin Floyd and a shutdown performance from Putz and Jenks. Floyd allowed only two hits and the Braves had only three baserunners the whole game in what looked and felt like your typical 2:17 getaway day special from the Bravos.

But I’ll have plenty of time to cry over the Braves later. The story today is the White Sox, who have now won nine straight games and — thanks to the Twins getting dropped by the Brewers once again this afternoon — now sit a mere two and a half games back.

The AL Central looks like it’s gonna be a wild one all summer, kiddos, so strap yourselves in.

    Pitching. Pitching. Pitching. Oh, and the National League is just aweful.

    WOW! 3 games over 500 and making a big push- gotta love the AL Central. Will tune in Metropolitans-Tigers tonight if it’s not over when Jeopardy ends.
    BTW, no stirring commentary today from media masses about Torre-Yanks reunion, anbd no, I don’t even comment on Lupica anymore. Figured he picked his manager of forever after a 3 martini lunch with Bill Gallo.
