Pregame Notes Sunday

White Sox Batting Order for Sunday

Podesdnik, LF; Harris, 2B; Thomas, DH; Konerko, 1B; Rowand, CF; Dye, RF; Pierzynski, C; Crede, 3B; Ozuna, SS.  Jon Garland (12-2, 3.40) takes the mound.

No BP

Manager Ozzie Guillen canceled batting practice before the game Sunday as the Sox conclude their longest homestand of the season (12 games, 14 days).

Crazy 8s

The White Sox eight-game winning streak ended yesterday.  It was the club’s third eight-game streak this season, as the Sox became just one of five teams in the major leagues since 1900 to accomplish that feat before July 1 (according to Elias Sports Bureau).  The others include the 2001 Seattle Mariners, 1998 Yankees, 1978 Boston Red Sox and 1912 New York Giants.  The Sox last won nine straight games in 1977.

I would just like to say that I love reading this blog everyday. I feel like we are getting a different side to the White Sox. Keep up the awesome work!!

Good point about Melancon and small sample size. I do atiercpape his ability to battle back after the homer and get the next three outs though.
