When 'if necessary' becomes more neccesary than if
by Bob Timmermann
The Chicago White Sox have four games left to play with only three days left in the regular season. A rainout against the Tigers on September 13 was only going to be made up if it had a bearing on the playoffs.
And on September 26, the White Sox trail Minnesota by 1/2 game. So it has become increasingly likely that the game will be played. The Twins magic number is four, so even if the Twins sweep Kansas City in Minneapolis, the White Sox can force the Tigers to make one more trip to Chicago on Monday.
