One day following a walk-off home run by Alexei Ramirez, the Chicago White Sox have an off day, their first day off since April 1.
With 13 games completed, the White Sox have a winning record of 7-6, winning series against the Minnesota Twins and the Cleveland Indians (both at US Cellular Field) for a home record of 5-2.
The two series losses for Chicago were both on the road, at the Kansas City Royals and the Colorado Rockies.

All I can say about Sunday’s game that I didn’t write here, is at least it wasn’t a loss.

I’m not going to lie, I’m glad the White Sox have an off day on Monday before the Boston Red Sox coming to “The Cell.” This team needs a day away from the ball park, and maybe some rest for the bullpen won’t hurt matters much either.
