Instant Rationalization - Washed out
The weather radar screen made it clear what the White Sox had to do Monday; get a lead by the 5th and a find a way to sit on it till the rainout. They came within one out of pulling off the feat with Eric Stults on the bump, before a walk to Lou Marson... Read more »
