The Chicago White Sox are a team that’s in a bit of a hole right now. Yes, they beat the Tampa Bay Rays this Saturday 3-2 but they lost Friday night’s game and didn’t look particularly great in Saturday’s game.

They just cannot get any kind of offense going. They aren’t “crushing” teams. When they win, it is almost always a very close game. Their offense is one of the worst in Major League Baseball.

In their first game of the Tampa Bay series, we saw the White Sox fall 6 to 3. Pitching started out cold but got better as the game went on but with a stagnant offense, enough damage was done to make it so the White Sox couldn’t come back to win the game.

The White Sox bats got hot in this one but by the time they were going, the game was over. And there was no way they could get three runs in a pinch to tie it. Not with that offense.

The Chicago White Sox now have a chance to win a series against the TB Rays.

The game Saturday saw the White Sox keep the Rays at bay for a while, with pitcher Dylan Cease having a so-so game. The White Sox could not get any offense going until they struck hard in the eighth inning with three runs to put themselves up by one.

It took some creative pitching and good defense to hold the Rays to two runs but the White Sox won the game and set themselves up for the possibility to win the series in game three.

The third game of the series will feature pitcher Lucas Giolito who is one of the White Sox’s best arms. If Giolito can have a great game, then the White Sox have a chance to win.

The offense needs to get going. The White Sox can pitch well all day long but if they have no runs on the board, they aren’t going to win very often.

The White Sox must get something going on offense to close out this Sunday’s game with a victory and get a much-needed series win. Their pitching should be solid but their offense needs to wake up and get going.

Should they be able to do that then you would think that the White Sox will get a win ((albeit a close one against the Rays) and get that series victory.

Stringing together a couple of victories would be huge for the Sox and might get them pointed in the right direction.
