Over the course of the long baseball season, in any given series even a good team can look over-matched. The White Sox do not look like a good team by any measure right now, and they certainly looked over-matched this weekend against the champion Astros. Houston completed a three-game sweep on Sunday with a 7-1 win. The Astros outscored Chicago 27-2 in the series. On the bright side, the White Sox avoided becoming the first team since 1929 to allow double-digit runs in five straight games. The Astros will now return home for a big series against the Los Angeles Angels.

The White Sox have now allowed 10 or more runs in four straight games. According to ESPN Stats & Info, that ties the longest such streak in franchise history. If the streak reaches five on Sunday -- a definite possibility with the way Houston has been swinging the bats this weekend -- it would be the fifth time a team has given up five straight games of double-digit runs. The last team do it was the Philadelphia Phillies -- in 1929.

After surrendering 20 unanswered runs to start their series against the Astros, the White Sox are finally on the board thanks to their newest acquisition, OF Trayce Thompson. Thompson homered to right off Dallas Keuchel to give the home fans something to finally cheer about after Houston had built a 10-0 lead. Thompson, in his second stint with Chicago, has been with four organizations in the last month.

As if the White Sox weren't already dealing with heavy hearts, then they have to go out and play the Houston Astros. The results have not been pretty so far in this series for Chicago. Josh Reddick just launched his seventh career grand slam to put Houston up 8-0. We've played 10 1/2 innings so far this series, and Houston has outscored Chicago 18-0.

So Justin Verlander didn't like Tim Anderson celebrating after a steal attempt on a 3-0 count on Friday? Verlander got the last laugh, picking Anderson off and enjoyed it too. We should want more of this: Players living in the moment, less mechanical obedience to the 'unwritten rules.'

Paxton, Mariners win 2-1, snap six-game skid vs Houston

James Paxton delivered six strong innings, Nelson Cruz took Dallas Keuchel deep and the Seattle Mariners beat the Houston Astros 2-1 on Monday night to end a six-game skid against the defending World Series champions.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Nice 2-1 win for the Mariners as Edwin Diaz works around a leadoff walk in the ninth and a stolen base to finish off the save. He's 7-for-7 in save chances, has yet to allow a run and has given up just one hit. Meanwhile, the Astros continue to struggle to score. They've scored 0 or 1 run in six of 17 games (35.3 percent) compared to 20 times in 2017 (12.3 percent).
