Found June 29, 2013 on The Rhino and Compass:
It’s the last weekend of June! That’s insane. Time is flying, as they say. Hockey rumors. No more Clutterbuck? Quite frankly, the local media has demonstrated their propensity towards uninformed alarmism with the Timberwolves draft. It was a big night for weird baseball last night. SCOREBOARD MLB Cleveland 19, Chicago 10 (Game 1) – This is why Casper Wells had to pitch. And this was only the first game of a double header. Cleveland 9, Chicago 8 (Game 2) – The White Sox scored 18 runs in a double header and were swept. Impressive Kansas City 9, Minnesota 3 – PJ Walters has got to go.

With Omogrosso Out, Simon Castro Gets His 1st Shot

During spring training, one of the most attractive prospects on the White Sox was starter Simon Castro. And now, after another failed stint in the bullpen from Brian Omogrosso, Castro is getting his first chance to make an impression with the MLB team. Last season, Omogrosso pitched in 17 games for the Sox and had a very good 2.57 ERA. And after he dominated this past...

White Sox Paul Konerko out until Sunday

Just one day after getting branded one of two Chicago White Sox untouchables, first baseman Paul Konerko sat out his fourth straight game as the White Sox began Game 1 of their double header with the Cleveland Indians. It turns out that Konerko will miss Game 2 as well as Saturday's game. CSN Chicago.com's Dan Hayes reports that Konerko will sit out until at least Sunday...

Indians in Chicago for doubleheader

Unless things don't turn around soon, the underachieving Chicago White Sox could be in for a shakeup. Looking to bounce back from another frustrating defeat, the White Sox hope for something positive during Friday's doubleheader against the visiting Cleveland Indians. Chicago (32-43) felt it was capable of challenging for the AL Central title this year, but it's last...

Pitcher Spotlight: Chris Sale

I’d like to introduce a new feature at FanGraphs: the pitcher spotlight.  While I will continue to try to highlight unique skills or aspects of the sport in other pieces, Major League Baseball is overflowing with quality pitching and interesting prospects worth addressing.  To cover a wider range of pitchers, these posts will be a regular but relatively brief look at a pitcher’s...

Indians aim for sweep in Chicago

It's been over 18 years since the Cleveland Indians swept a four-game series from the Chicago White Sox. The Indians may have to get the best of Chris Sale on Sunday to end that drought, but that wasn't a problem in their last matchup with Chicago's ace. Since losing a season-high eight straight, the Indians (43-38) have gone in the opposite direction by winning 13 of...

P.J. Walters struggles in his second consecutive start

MINNEAPOLIS -- P.J. Walters' last start was one to forget. His latest outing wasn't much better. One game after he was yanked in the first inning, Walters lasted just three innings Friday at Target Field. The Twins right-hander was hit around by the Royals and allowed six runs on six hits as Kansas City went on to top the Twins by a 9-3 final. "That's two in a row...

Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox combine for 29 runs

A wild game it was at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago on an overcast Friday evening. It was far from a pitchers’ duel in the first game of a doubleheader between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox, as the two teams combined to score 29 runs. The Cleveland Indians drove home 19 of those 29 runs thanks in large part to every one of their batters logging at least one hit....

CHICAGO (AP) -- Justin Masterson pitched his major league-leading third shutout of the season and the Cleveland Indians completed their first four-game sweep in Chicago since 1948, beating the White Sox 4-0 Sunday.

June 28: Indians 19, White Sox 10; Indians 9, White Sox 8

After an off day on Thursday, the White Sox were set with two games against the Cleveland Indians on Friday. And you probably wouldn't be too shocked if I told you the Sox lost both of those games. But you would be quite surprised if I told you they did so while scoring 18 runs. In the first inning of game one, the Sox sent 11 men to the plate and scored five of them...

Tribe rallies to beat White Sox 4-3

CHICAGO -- Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher drove in the tie-breaking run for the second straight game as the Indians beat the Chicago White Sox for the third time in 24 hours, 4-3 Saturday afternoon. With the win, the Indians have won nine of their last 12 games and trail the Detroit Tigers by 1.5 games in the American League Central, pending the outcome of Detroit vs. Tampa...

June 29: Indians 4, White Sox 3

After getting swept in the double header on Friday by the division rival Cleveland Indians, the White Sox took the field again Saturday afternoon to try to get back on track. Starter Dylan Axelrod had a good outing, which started off with three scoreless frames against the Tribe. It looked like it was going to be a much lower scoring affair than either of the games on...

Series Preview 27: Indians at White Sox

The White Sox homestand continues this weekend with four games in three days against division rival Cleveland.  Terry Francona’s club comes in at 40-38, 2.5 games behind the Tigers in second place in the AL Central.  The Indians are on the second stop of a three city, eleven game road trip and split a four game set with the Orioles on their first stop.  Cleveland has...
