June 24 - 26, 2008: White Sox @ Dodgers

June 24 - 26, 2008: Los Angeles, California

June 24: White Sox 6 - Dodgers 1
June 25: White Sox 0 - Dodgers 5
June 26: White Sox 2 - Dodgers 0

Two out of three ain't bad.

The sweep from the Cubs doesn't seem to have a lasting effect on the White Sox. Although there are weaknesses found in the armor, for the most part, the Sox seem to be back on track.

The highlight of the series is probably one of the most low-key moments. Mark Buehrle recorded his 1,000th strikeout. That was almost unimaginable when he was drafted. I doubt that he will be a threat to the strikeout record, but it's nice to know that he reached a milestone that some pitchers never come close to.

The good:
Mark Buehrle's 1,000th career strikeout in Game 1.

Jermaine Dye is on fire at the plate and on the field.

The bad:
Two errors in Game 3.

Joe Crede's back stiffness kept him out of the first two games.

The ugly:
Only four hits in Game 2.

Three errors in Game 2.

This turned out to be a good series for the Sox. It doesn't look spectacular on paper, but they won the series. Any series win is better than a series loss. Things are looking up for the South Side.
