White Sox finish off Red Sox 5 - 3!!

Thanks to tv network favoritism towards the Yankees, this series ending game featuring last year's World Series winner and a surprizing White Sox team was scheduled to start during a friday afternoon. A work day.
As luck would have it, I was able to pick up the game in the 6th inning on the ride home. Of course by then the Red Sox had loaded the bases with no outs against an aging pitcher and all was going to fall apart. (I'm a Cubs fan too and way too pessimistic). Guess what. The White Sox got out of the inning and actually won the game. Amazing!! Swept the Red Sox 3 - 0.
