Series Preview: White Sox vs. Rangers

Although the White Sox split the series with the Yankees, it was a successful seven game road trip. The White Sox went 4-3 while keeping their hot streak on the road (23-16). But with their home record sitting under .500 for the year (19-21) and the second best team coming into town, it should be another test of what team are the White Sox. The Rangers are coming into this match-up having won seven out of their last ten, distancing themselves from the other abysmal Western Division teams.
