The Chicago White Sox had a rough series vs the Texas Rangers but the road trip continues so it is time to get back on track.

The Chicago White Sox had a rough series with the Texas Rangers. It wasn’t very fun to watch for Sox fans although the White Sox were never out of it. That is the difference in this current Sox squad, they are always in it even if it is a rough series. The only won one of the three games allowing the Rangers to take this series and set the White Sox back a little bit.

The White Sox won the first game but then lost the next two, despite showing that they were not dead in either of the two games. The pitching was subpar for the White Sox in this one and there were some questionable lineup decisions as well.

The White Sox were coming off of an emotional series vs the Cubs but then had to come back down to earth and play a very good Texas Rangers squad. Both teams have had similar up and down years but Texas has just been a little bit better. The White Sox are probably about a year away but they are really fun to watch, while the Rangers seem to be just a little bit better this year.

This is the last time that the White Sox will play at Globe Life Park in Arlington. The Rangers are moving to Globe Life Field in 2020 so that will be the location the next time the White Sox make a trip to Arlington, Texas. The White Sox historically have not had much luck in Arlington in the history of that stadium with a record of 48-64. They are probably happy to see the Rangers move into a new home and try to be better going forward against them.

It was a series of ups and downs obviously, so let’s look at the positives and negatives:
