June 30 - July 2, 2008: Indians @ White Sox

June 30 - July 2, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

June 30: Indians 7 - White Sox 9
July 1: Indians 2 - White Sox 3
July 2: Indians 5 - White Sox 6

An extra special sweep.

Adam Russell must have an angel on his shoulder. After rotting away in the bullpen for what seemed like an eternity, he steps into two consecutive games in the tenth inning and earns the win for both games. It helps that the White Sox decided to wake up the bats in the late innings of those two games.

The good:
Adam Russell earns two wins.

Alexei Ramirez homered in the second game.

The bad:
Nick Masset was lit up for 3 runs in relief in game 1.

Carlos Quentin struggled at the plate.

The ugly:
Two errors in game 2.

Scott Linebrink's blown save in game 3.

A. J. saved the day in the third game with two home runs, including the game winner. These were close games, even though a couple didn't have to be. This makes it seven in a row! The Sox look like they can do no wrong. It would be nice if the winning streak would last forever, but it will end sometime. When one ends, another will start at some point.
