Yes, the headline is correct … the Chicago White Sox are currently two games over the .500 mark, and are one win away from taking their third series of the season.

Last night, the White Sox won in dramatic fashion with a 2-1 walk-off win, off an errant throw that allowed Alexei Ramirez to score the game-winning run against the Boston Red Sox.

That win was the second consecutive walk-off win, as both times it was Ramirez who scored the winning run.

Chicago currently sits at the top of the AL Central with the Detroit Tigers. The White Sox are 8-6 overall, and the Tigers are 6-4, playing two games less than Chicago at this point of the season.

We also have to give credit to the pitching performance of right-hander Erik Johnson, as he came up huge for the White Sox in 6.2 innings. He made his best start of the season thus far in his third appearance. He got a no-decision.

Tonight we’ll see left-handed pitcher John Danks (1-0, 4.15 ERA) for the White Sox face right-hander Clay Buchholz (0-1, 6.97 ERA) of the Red Sox in another good pitching matchup.

Should be an interesting game for sure.
