Miguel Gonzalez got himself back on the track. The righty took a no hitter into the seventh and the White Sox won 7-3 over Detroit.

Miguel Gonzalez needed a quality start after dropping his last five. And did he ever deliver. The right hander took a no hitter into the seventh inning and the Chicago White Sox smacked three home runs in a 7-3 win over Detroit on Sunday. Gonzalez would end up allowing three runs on six hits but recorded six strikeouts.

The right hander had arguably his best start of the season. He controlled the game and kept the Tigers hitters in check through six innings. The White Sox also provided plenty of offense, also good to see. The 33-year-old had lost his last five decisions, but seemed to be dialed in against Detroit. And that’s exactly what the White Sox needed to win its series over the Tigers.

Pitching had begun to be a problem for the Sox because they just weren’t getting many quality starts. The bullpen has been phenomenal all year however. That was again on display as Dan Jennings, Chris Beck and David Robertson combined to throw 1 1/3 scoreless innings. What’s even more impressive? Neither guy yielded a hit or a walk. The bullpen has been a strength for this team. The starting pitching needs to get there too.

The White Sox have been playing some really good baseball this season. At times they look overmatched, but they seem to never quit and are fun to watch. The offense is slowly coming around and that will be another key moving forward.

Historically, the offense hasn’t been great. And when Matt Davidson is hitting, that will only mean positive things moving forward. The White Sox currently sit in third place and 4.5 games off the Central Division lead. There’s no reason why they can’t go on a mini run and maybe make the division race interesting.
