White Sox end road trip on a winning note

The White Sox wrapped up their nine game road trip on Sunday with a 4-1 victory over the Reds. This trip began in Milwaukee where they would take two out of three. They would return home briefly to take on their North side counter parts where they would split a rain shortened series. They would take on the Cincinnati Reds over the weekend.

This series was important because on Saturday they would play the first ever regular season Civil Rights game. The Sox won a barn burner 10-8. Mark Buehrle pitched on Sunday and earned his first victory since May 19. He improves to 7-2 on the year. They were 5-3 on the trip and they return home to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers.

It is a rematch of 1959 World Series. Before 2005 it was the last the White Sox had appeared in the World Series. John Danks (5-5) will take on the Dodgers Hiroki Kuroda (1-3). After the Dodgers series, round two of the Crosstown Classic will take place over the weekend. The Sox sit at 33-36 and are five games out of first place. Tuesday night's game is at 7:11 p.m. CT.
