Holy Cow - White Socks Sweep; 1 Game from Bouncing Red Sox from Playoffs

 Developing ... After hearing the Orioles 11-4 for a sweep, the White Sox need only win their finale to finish ahead of the Red Sox for the last playoff spot.

6th - Final Playoff Spot - 28-29

7th - Red Sox - 29-31 (does have tie-breaker)

Jimenez and Abreu hit 2 homers each Cease struck out 11 in 5 innings, and Bummer came in with bases loaded in the 7th to preserve the sweep.

The season finale was a more classic 4-3 decision where speed mattered - with the playoffs determined in the last inning. The White Sox to the 9th for one of the best relievers in the game - Liam Hendriks.

However he walked two, and Brett Phillips came in as a pinch runner coming off his 14 steals last year that made him a fast obr-sp A-A.

Anthony Santander came in with a chance to drive him home but was called out on a 46, which we consider a check swing barely called a strike out and one spot from a walk. Hendrik also struck out odor for a 4-3 win, 30-30 record, and the last playoff spot!

2nd game to come - Red Sox can only wait.
