September 23—With today’s 7-2 win over the Indians, the White Sox clinch the American League Central Division title—for the first time since 2008. This is the sixth division championship for the White Sox, and the first time that the team has earned back-to-back postseason appearances.
“The first three jobs, the clubs were struggling when I took over. Managers don’t walk into a situation like this, with a team so ready to win. So I’m very, very fortunate,” said Tony La Russa.
The Houston Astros are the most likely opponent in the ALDS.
