The Chicago White Sox Report

by Bill Chuck on September 5, 2013

The Chicago White Sox continued to act as patsy as opposed to spoiler in the AL East race after losing to the Yankees last night, 6-5.

The Pale Hose have now been swept in consecutive three-game sets by the Red Sox and Yankees as they head to Baltimore tonight.

Last night, Chicago hit the daily double by both clinching a losing season and by being mathematically eliminated from winning the AL Central division title.
