The Chicago White Sox entered Wednesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on a five-game losing streak. They were swept by the Houston Astros over the weekend and then allowed the Pirates to come back and win on Tuesday night to extend the streak. Well, that tough stretch is now in the past as they have defeated Pittsburgh in game two of their two-game series. Now, they can focus on getting on another roll so they can win the division.

It is time for the Chicago White Sox to move on from their big losing streak.

The 2005 World Series Champion Chicago White Sox lost seven in a row at one point during the regular season. They also almost blew a huge lead in the division in September before going on the greatest postseason run in the history of the sport. This White Sox team, when healthy, has the talent to make a deep run like that so this five-game losing streak will be laughed at later on.

It also finished a very tough stretch of games in June that included series against teams like the Toronto Blue Jays, Tampa Bay Rays, and Houston Astros. You need to be average or slightly better against the other elite teams and pound the bad teams if you wanna be a division champion. So far this season, the White Sox are doing just that.

Now, they finally are returning home. After an off-day on Thursday, it is going to be “Reopening Day” as Guaranteed Rate Field will welcome fans back at 100 percent capacity for the first time since 2019. It has been a long time coming but it is finally here. It is very important for them to do what they do best against the Seattle Mariners who aren’t a bad baseball team at all. They are not as good as the White Sox but they can make things difficult if the Sox don’t play their game.

We saw Dylan Cease do his thing good enough for the White Sox to beat the Pirates to end the streak. Now it is up to Carlos Rodon, Lance Lynn, and Dallas Keuchel to lead the way on the mound. Hopefully, the offense is able to do what it did in game two against the Pirates so they can complement the great pitching.

If more fans at the game are able to spark the guys the way that it has for some other teams across the league, they will be in good shape. They have a pitching advantage in every game but that doesn’t always mean much. They have been very good at home so we can only hope it continues and the bad part is over for good.
