White Sox lose two-game series to lowly Phillies on the road. The loss puts the team closer to finishing season below .500 for fourth consecutive season.

The Chicago White Sox have 10 games remaining which would typically be bad news for passionate fans. However, the end of the season can’t come soon enough for miserable Sox fans.

The Sox were swept by the Phillies in a brief two game series in Philadelphia. With the loss on Wednesday, the Sox record sits at 72-80. The Sox are now eight games under .500 with 10 games remaining, and very little to play for at this point.

This disastrous season will be over on October 2, but for Sox fans this season ended a long time ago. The Sox entered its series with the Phillies on Tuesday riding a three game losing streak, but they left Philadelphia with a five game losing streak.

With the Sox on the verge of another losing season, Sox fans can find a glimmer of hope towards 2017: no more Robin Ventura as manager. If the front office decides to give Ventura another extension, they might want to get ready for less fans at games next season.

The Sox will head to Cleveland for the last road series of the season against the Indians. On the current road trip, the Sox have won just one game. With another road series loss, there are some takeaways from the series against Philadelphia that are highlighted here.
