This from the Elias Sports Bureau:
The White Sox swept their seven-game homestand, matching the longest homestand that the team has swept in its 108-year history. The three previous 7-0 Sox homestands came in May 1965, April 1972 and then in September 1983.
Chicago’s offensive totals in those seven games: 61 runs on 91 hits, including 19 home runs. Only two other teams in major league history have produced that many runs, hits and home runs during a seven-game winning streak: the Athletics did it in 2000 and the Braves followed suit two years ago.
