Ohtani (9-2, 3.36 ERA) felt soreness while playing catch Wednesday.

As the White Sox head into the final 18 games of the regular season, SSS duty geezer Leigh Allan and his son and west coast correspondent, Will, gaze into ye olde crystal ball and see an immediate future mostly full of teams that wouldn’t even be in the major leagues if relegation existed. That, of course, bodes well for the effort to gain home-field advantage in round one of the playoffs, especially since the Astros still have to face Oakland six times and Tampa Bay three.

That run was one of just two off of White Sox starter Dallas Keuchel, the other coming on a sacrifice fly after two singles in the sixth.
