Found June 29, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Chicago White Sox continued showing fight on the field, coming back against New York thanks to a three-run homer from Dayan Viciedo in the ninth, but also getting younger in the bullpen with their latest call-up. Prior to the 4-3 comeback win at Yankee Stadium, lefty Leyson Septimo became the latest rookie to join the Sox pitching staff when the southpaw had his contract purchased from Class AAA Charlotte to take Will Ohman's spot on the roster. Over 21 relief appearances for the Knights, Septimo, 26, posted a 2-1 record with a 1.48 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 30 1/3 innings. Opposing hitters produced a .135 average against Septimo, with a .095 against (4-for-42) for left-handed hitters. "The biggest difference was when I was in Charlotte, I wasn't trying to throw hard all the time, and (I was) just (trying to) make pitches," Septimo said through a translator. "When I did need to throw hard, I did, but it wasn't like every pitch I was trying to thro...

White Sox let veteran lefty Will Ohman go

The Chicago White Sox have decided to designate left-handed reliever Will Ohman for assignment after a wild final appearance with the team. The White Sox announced after Wednesday's win at Minnesota that the move will be made on Thursday, before they begin a four-game series in New York against the Yankees. The 34-year-old Ohman has pitched for six major league teams. This...

White Sox might try shadow ball routine again

The Chicago White Sox totally had a ball - without one. In a throwback to comic routines from the game's distant past, the White Sox played ''shadow ball'' Thursday night, pantomiming catches and throws during a mock infield drill. Coach Joe McEwing said the team ran out of time for a full practice before playing at Yankee Stadium. Instead, they went through...

Crain may be put on DL with ailing shoulder

Chicago White Sox righty Jesse Crain looks closer to going back on the 15-day disabled list than returning to the bullpen, with his condition not changing prior to Friday's win over the Yankees. Crain felt a little shoulder soreness after his most recent outing, last Saturday against the Brewers, and then "felt something" on Monday. He threw off the mound on Tuesday...

Chicago White Sox: Strong offense supports Sale

It could be their confidence in Chris Sale or it could be the 12 o’clock start time. Whatever it was, something had the Chicago White Sox bats on fire in today’s rubber matchup against the Minnesota Twins. The White Sox recorded a season high 21 hits as they rolled over the Twins 12-4. Sale was his usual dominant self. The AL leader in ERA went seven innings, allowing two runs...

Interview with White Sox 1st Round Draft Pick Courtney Hawkins

Two MSF writers, myself and Luke Stanczyk, run a White Sox fan blog, “Grab Some Bench!” It’s our first year with the site, and let me tell you we’ve absolutely loved every day of it. Recently, I got an opportunity to interview White Sox 2012 1st round draft pick Courtney Hawkins. After the interview was over (and about a week of technical difficulties passed)I finally got...

Slumping Konerko believes his swing is fine

Things are clearly going right for the Chicago White Sox when they explode for a 12-5 win over the Minnesota Twins on a day when captain Paul Konerko is on the bench, getting a mental break. Konerko went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's game, extending his slump to 1-for-20, but he took something out of that evening that he thinks will carry forward with the Sox beginning a huge series...

White Sox Don’t Need Youk Either

The Chicago White Sox started a three game series with the Yankees last night and came up with a huge win. Jose Quintana pitched 6.0 innings, gave up 8 hits, 6 ER, 5 Ks, and got the win. As far as starts at Yankee Stadium go, this one could have been a lot worse. If you had the cajones to start him at least you got a win and 5 Ks. I still like Quintana a lot, but I’d steer clear...

White Sox 12, Twins 5

Chris Sale won again, pitching seven easy innings with support from a three-run homer by Adam Dunn, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 12-5 Wednesday. The American League's leader in earned run average, Sale (9-2) struck out five and walked one with six hits and two runs allowed. Dunn had three hits and four RBIs along with his 24th home run of the season, and...

White Sox 14, Yankees 7

A.J. Pierzynski homered twice, Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez also connected and the Chicago White Sox pounded the Yankees so hard that New York brought in outfielder Dewayne Wise to pitch in a 14-7 romp Friday night. A night after the White Sox rallied to win at Yankee Stadium on Dayan Viciedo's three-run homer in the ninth, they made it a short and sour major league debut...

Mambino Mondays | Who Needed Youkilis?

Our friend Blake from The Great Mambino blog wrote his weekly blurb on fantasy and baseball in general. Here's what he wrote: In the move that everyone saw coming, the Boston Red Sox finally traded Kevin Youkilis on Sunday. After rumors flew around fast and furious like a CC Sabathia batting practice, GM Ben Cherington shipped his third baseman to the Chicago White Sox for...

White Sox rally to beat Yankees

Addison Reed knew Yankee Stadium's reputation for swallowing up easy flys for home runs. He also knew Derek Jeter had a knack for coming through in the clutch. So when Jeter sent a sharp liner to right field, the White Sox closer hoped the ball would stay in the park and that Alex Rios would have space to make the catch. Rios did, with no room to spare. Rios banged into the...

White Sox 4, Yankees 3

Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer off David Robertson in the ninth inning after a throwing error, and the Chicago White Sox rallied past the New York Yankees 4-3 Thursday night. Reliever Clay Rapada's wild toss to second base on a potential double-play ball set up the AL Central-leading White Sox. With closer Rafael Soriano not available after pitching the past two games...

Sox 67

Two important wins in June 67 seemed to propel the team forward. The first was a walkoff two-run homer by Tony Conigliaro in the eleventh inning at Fenway to defeat the White Sox 2-1. Chicago had broken open a scoreless game in the top half on a Ken Berry single to plate rookie Walt Williams. In one of the most exciting moments in Tony's all-too-short career, he stepped to the...
