Quote of the Day

Jeff Samardzija on the recent success of the Sox’ starting rotation:

“It’s what we’re expecting out of ourselves. It’s not so much a rhythm, it’s getting back to what we expect every day we start. We know a lot goes with how we go, and as long as we get our offense back in the dugout we have a pretty good lineup to score some runs.”

Tomorrow’s Schedule

White Sox vs. Twins at U.S. Cellular Field (7:10 p.m. CT, CSN) in the opener of a three-game weekend series. Probable Starters: RHP Samardzija  (3-2, 4.58) for the Sox, RHP Phil Hughes (3-4, 4.76) for Minnesota.
