Thanks to a three run homer by Brent Morel, the White Sox found themselves on the right side of a game at U.S. Cellular Field for the first time since May 2nd. The home win also saved them from being swept by the Texas Rangers in the short two game series.
Morel’s home run, his first of the 2011 season, tied the game in the fifth inning and got the crowd back into the game. The difference would come on a crazy play in the eighth, when Rangers pitcher Cody Eppley threw a wild pitch that allowed Gordon Beckham to scamper home and give the White Sox a 4-3 lead.
Though the Sox won, starter John Danks was still denied the victory on the evening. He ended the night with a no decision, despite holding Texas to just four hits and two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings of work.
The White Sox will continue their home swing on Wednesday evening, as they host the red hot Cleveland Indians, who are coming in on a three game win streak. First pitch in that game will be at 7:10, P.M., CDT.
