White Sox on Verge of Twinkies Sweep

Turn on Comcast Sports Net now. It's the bottom of the 7th, and the Sox just went up by two over the Twinkies. Down by three runs, Paul Konerko just hit a two-run homer to right-center. Hoping to sweep the series, the Sox have coupled their consistently strong pitching with their suddenly-hot bats to dominate the Twins over the first three games of this series.

Going for the four-game sweep, Jon Danks was less-than-stellar, but Nick Swisher has kept it close with homers from both sides of the plate. He's finally heating up after struggling all season.

This could be the series in which the Sox step up and truly establish themselves as the team to beat in the Central. As for the Sox-Cubs debate currently raging both on ESPN and in bars around Chicagoland, we have only a few weeks until we can settle that one...
