After a fashion and given the circumstances, the White Sox feel like they’ve been ending the season on a pretty good note. They’ve won five in a row, guaranteeing that their win total will be higher than 2015, and keeping the hopes alive that they’ll make it to .500 for the first time since 2012. Todd Frazier got his 40th home run, Miguel Gonzalez continues to look like...
