Chicago White Sox Pregame Action:
In the midst of a four-game losing streak, the Chicago White Sox and manager Rick Renteria are attempting to keep business as usual-winning.
“I think obviously there’s an ebb and flow in the game of baseball, we all know it, everybody’s seen it,” Renteria said Wednesday in a press conference. “Everybody takes a different tack (to dealing with struggles). I think these guys, personally I just try to stay as relaxed as possible and stay as positive as possible because it’s not something to truly panic over.
“I think it’s just a part of the game and you know you’re going to get through it.”
The White Sox have struggled to score runs at times, which caused them to drop to under .500 heading into Thursday’s series finale against the Minnesota Twins. Wednesday’s game was cancelled due to rain and will be made up as part of a straight doubleheader on Aug. 21.
The Twins entered Thursday’s game winning four of their last six games. Offensive production hasn’t been much of an issue for Minnesota compared to the White Sox.
Today’s game will determine if the White Sox will snap their losing streak with a win or continue on this treacherous journey of losing.
