August 5-7, 2008: Tigers @ White Sox

August 5-7, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

August 5: Tigers 8 - White Sox 10
August 6: Tigers 1 - White Sox 5
August 7: Tigers 8 - White Sox 3

You've come a long way.

Every team seems pesky against the White Sox right now. Especially the teams that are essentially out of contention. The Tigers fought tough, but could only salvage the last game against the Sox.

The good: A come from behind victory for the Sox in the 14th inning of game 1.

The Sox continue to be homer happy.

The bad:
Gavin Floyd ran into some struggles in game 1.

After a strong start, Ken Griffey Jr. has cooled a bit.

The ugly:
Matt Thornton almost blew the game wide open in the top of the 14th inning in game 1 by giving up two runs.

Sox pitching gave up 8 runs in game 3, most by Javier Vazquez.

The important thing is that the Sox won another series. Things got uneasy in game one when the tie was broken in the fourteenth inning by the Tigers. The Sox answered that by scoring enough to win in the bottom of the inning.

The Sox pitching is starting to show more signs of a long season. I'm sure the bullpen wasn't helped by the fourteen inning affair, but Javier Vazquez needed to follow John Danks great game two performance with one of his own.

It doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win. I wonder if this is what Doug Radar meant by winning ugly?
