Sox Bats Come Alive,Win Series Finale Against Dodgers

The White Sox continued their Interleague dominance with an 8-3 victory over the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon at US Cellular Field. With the victory the Sox are now 145-105 all time against the National League since Interleague play began in 1997. More importantly the Sox finally put together a nice home stand. They finished 5-2 and won their fifth out of the last six series they have played.

Alexei Ramirez was the star for the Sox (22-26). Ramirez went four for five, including a two run homer in the first inning, and drove in five runs. The shortstop was just a triple short of hitting for the cycle.

Edwin Jackson pitched well enough to earn the win. Jackson went five and two thirds allowing one run on five hits and struck out seven. The right hander improved to 4-6 on the season.

Hiroki Kuroda took the loss for the Dodgers (21-27). Kuroda gave up six runs (four earned) on nine hits and fell to 5-4 on the season.

The White Sox now hit the road for 10 games starting in Texas on Monday evening.


Sox,Dodgers Face Off In Rubber Match Of Series

The White Sox will host the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday looking to not only take the series, but also to finish off a successful home stand -- a rare occurrence for the Sox, who have been nothing short of awful at home this season.

Prior to this home stand, the White Sox had a home record of 5-11. A win today would give them a 5-2 record at home before hitting the road for another long trip.

It won't be easy for the Sox (21-26) on Sunday afternoon. The Dodgers (21-26) will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound. Kuroda has been one of the few bright spots for the Dodgers this season, entering Sunday's game with a 5-3 record and a fantastic 2.80 ERA.

Edwin Jackson will take the hill for the Sox. Jackson has been average this season at best. He comes in with a 3-5 record with 4.53 ERA in nine starts. The righty, who's had zero run support in four of his last six outings, will need some help from the Sox bats on Sunday.

The scheduled time for first pitch is 1:10 Central. Forecast for first pitch is sunshine and temps in the mid-70's. The game can be seen on WGN.
