The Chicago White Sox enter Saturday’s game at the New York Yankees with four consecutive losses, but can today be the day the White Sox get back to the good side of the scoreboard?

Chicago has four straight games, with those four consecutive games against the the AL East with three against the Baltimore Orioles and one Friday night against the Yankees by a 4-3 score.

Even if it took the Yankees until a walk-off hit in the ninth to defeat the White Sox, a loss is still a loss, and it moved the White Sox to 10 games under .500 at 59-69 overall on the season. With the loss being on the road, it dropped the “Good Guys” to 28-37 away from US Cellular Field.

Against the AL East this season, the White Sox are 14-15 overall thus far. Against the Yankees they are 2-3 on the season.

One plus in the loss was seeing Jose Abreu hit a three-run home run in the first inning, giving him 33 home runs on the year and 93 RBIs. He’s second in the Majors in home runs and tied for first in RBIs.

On Saturday, the White Sox will send Scott Carroll (5-7, 4.99 ERA) to the mound to face Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda (8-8, 3.97 ERA), so maybe this is the day the White Sox can gain their 60th win of the year.

We’ll see.
