Big League Debut
Congratulations to Brian Anderson, who makes his major league debut tonight, hitting ninth and playing right field.
Despite recent stumbles, the White Sox are 36-23 (.610) at home in 2005, the fourth-best winning percentage in the American League, but have lost 11 of their last 17 at U.S. Cellular Field since July 8. The Sox were 30-12 with a .266 average and 3.67 ERA through their first 42 home games, but are hitting .242 with a 4.47 ERA and have been outscored, 66-86, in their current stretch.
Carl Everett is 8-17 (.471) over his last six games and is hitting .455 (10-22) with three home runs and nine RBI vs. Minnesota this season … Paul Konerko has reached base safely in 17 straight games … at 38-19, the White Sox own the best road record in the major leagues and are on pace to win a franchise-record 54.
