The White Sox moved out of the American League Central cellar this weekend by sweeping the Indians on the road. CSN's Chuck Garfien and Bill Melton discuss how the South Siders can keep this momentum going and find a way to perhaps make Wild Card moves in the White Sox Road Ahead, sponsored by Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Honda Dealers.
Just when it appeared the White Sox were regressing to the mean, losing six of seven and falling eight games below .500, they go and complete a four-game sweep this weekend in Cleveland. Now Robin Ventura's group is sitting at 46-50 and just 5.0 games out of the second Wild Card spot. Granted, there are five teams ahead of them after the Astros and Twins (current Wild Card leaders) and with four games coming up in Boston Bill Melton believes they likely will be sellers at the deadline.

But if the White Sox do stand a fighting chance, it'll be because of their starting rotation. That rotation hasn't issued a walk in five straight starts, which hasn't been done by a White Sox staff since 1972.
"I know (pitching coach) Don Cooper hates walks. If anything he can't stand walks, whether it's out of the bullpen or on the mound," Melton said. "He's got to be feeling really good because whatever corrections he's made, again it's competition, it's five starters competing against each other. Everybody wants to outdo the other guy. I think that helps a lot."
