The Paul Konerko Report

by Bill Chuck on September 3, 2013

The White Sox had another game in which they committed more errors than they scored runs as the Yankees scored eight 4th inning runs to defeat Chicago, 9-1.

The one Sox run came as the result of a Paul Konerko homer, his 10th of the season.

Since 1999, Konerko is the only player with 15 seasons of double-figure homers
