On Friday, the White Sox clubbed the Rangers 9-7 to go over the .500 mark for the first time this season. Luis Robert had a few hits and his 4th stolen base of the season.
Then it was Saturday and the White Sox found their way to a 2-1 victory by way of Nick Madrigal. Again, Luis Robert found himself on base for a late heroic opportunity, and Madrigal delivered in a big moment.

Finally on Sunday, they finished off Texas like they should have in an 8-4 ballgame. Jose Abreu hit his fifth home run of the season, but that was not the storyline of this one.
The long awaited debut as a starting pitcher finally happened for Michael Kopech, and he was as advertised.
In five innings on 87 pitches, Kopech struck out 10 hitters and got the victory to improve to 3-0 on the year. While it’s big that the White Sox are three games over the .500 mark and completed the sweep, it’s even bigger that they get a shot in the arm in the form of Kopech to an already solid rotation.
Right now, there are few teams in the league that impress me as much on paper as Chicago does. They’re must see television if you have an MLB package and you find yourself bored around the house, turn them on. They’re going to win a lot of games this season.
