In a 2-hit complete game shutout coming in at 1 hour 50 minutes, Pale Hose LHP Johnny Danks (W, 8-7, 2H 7K 0BB 3.29) completed the team’s first sweep of the Angels since 1983, a season similarly marked by a jaw-dropping turnaround on the South Side. (Only this time, the Orioles are not a factor.)
The white-hot club is 22-5 over their last 27, are 8 games over .500 and half a game behind idle 1st place Detroit with three games in KC between now and the ASG. Outside the exercise yards of the nation’s maximum security prisons, the Sox are credibly the most dangerous team in baseball: what a difference a month-and-change makes. June 2nd it ain’t.
