The Chicago White Sox come into their series with the Los Angeles Dodgers at home riding a two-game winning streak. Couple that with the fact they are playing at least a little better on offense (plus their pitching is solid) and you have the makings of what could be a fun three-game series.
It is the Dodgers. They are one of the best teams in the sport and are coming to Chicago to play. What a sight it would be if the White Sox, who are underwhelming this year so far, were able to take down one of the top teams in baseball.
It would not only boost the morale of the fanbase, but it would also give the White Sox a boost that could carry them on a sizeable winning streak.
Beating good teams makes better teams out of teams that are struggling. Beating the Dodgers could be the turning point for the White Sox.
Having a winning streak coming into this series is big and the White Sox are going to want to continue that winning streak no matter which team is in their way. It would be great if they could sweep the Dodgers and find themselves on a five-game winning streak.
The Chicago White Sox could use a confidence-building series win this week.
That would help them keep pace with the Minnesota Twins as well as the Cleveland Guardians and could be just what they need to improve their overall outlook. Winning cures a lot of ills.
Don’t we all love it when the White Sox beat a team that they don’t play that often (such as the Chicago Cubs)? Well, the White Sox and the Dodgers don’t play each other that often which makes things interesting.
Could the White Sox at the least win the series and have bragging rights over the Dodgers for a year? That would make White Sox fans ecstatic and could help start a potential NL/AL rivalry.
This should be a fun series that will be a lot more fun if the White Sox can win it all or at least take the series. The Dodgers are a good team and beating them would show that the White Sox are a decent team that’s at least headed in the right direction. Look for this to be a hard-fought series with some intense moments that could go the White Sox way.
