White Sox accomplish a winning record during its road trip and come home to a seven-game homestand with a chance to climb over .500.

The Chicago White Sox were able to have a winning road trip as they won their series over the Toronto Blue Jays with two wins in three games. They split their four-game series with the Cleveland Indians although they should have won three of those four games.

With the winning road trip, the White Sox record sits at 18-21 and they will open a six-game homestand on Monday against the Indians. They will conclude their homestand with a four-game series against the Blue Jays.

There were plenty of positive signs throughout the Sox road trip. Despite losing three games, many players shined throughout the road trip and have again, changed the direction of this season even just briefly.

While there were some positive signs throughout the Sox winning road trip, some players continued to struggle. Jose Abreu is mired in a slump at the moment. Dylan Covey and Manny Banuelos have been unable to post decent outings since joining the rotation.

Those negative signs from the aforementioned players, however, didn’t prevent the Sox from moving closer to .500 thankfully. This Sox team might not contend for the postseason, but this most recent road trip should give fans more reason to continue believing in the current rebuild for this franchise.
