It's only one homestand, so you can't get too carried away. Still, the power display put on by the White Sox during 7 straight wins over the Royals and Twins was nothing short of impressive. For the record, the Sox hit 19 home runs before heading to Motown. Here is the breakdown: Joe Crede (5) Nick Swisher (4) Carlos Quentin (2) Alexei Ramirez (2) Jim Thome (2) Paul Konerko (2) A.J. Pierzynski (1) Jermaine Dye (1) Yes, it was very warm when it wasn't raining during the homestand. Yes again, the ball carries very well at the Cell when the weather heats up. For the record, Kansas City and Minnesota combined to hit 9 home runs during the 7 games on the South Side. All things considered, the White Sox' pitching staff has nothing to be ashamed of. Consider this as well _ when the Sox return home from a three-game trip to Detroit, they jump back into interleague play against Colorado and Pittsburgh. Heading into Monday's play, the Rockies (4.82) and Pirates (4.80) had the two highest ERAs in the National League. The White Sox might want to reload that exploding scoreboard.
