This ends a 12 year postseason drought for the team on the South side. After an extensive rebuild, the Sox created one of the most explosive offenses the Majors have seen this year. Complemented by several quality pitchers, the Sox are geared up to make a deep run with a contending roster.
The Sox wrapped up their series against the Twins winning 3 out of 4 and look to extend their 3 game lead in the AL Central. The Sox head to Ohio next for a 3 game series against the Cincinnati Reds and 4 game series against the Cleveland Indians. They then look to return home to end the regular season in another Crosstown matchup against the Chicago Cubs
