White Sox recognize need for timely hitting
CHICAGO -- The good news for the White Sox is that they have a .297 average with runners in scoring position and less than two outs. The bad news is that they are hitting .237 overall in those situations.

And the best news would be if they take advantage of more of these scoring opportunities.

"Any time you have a situation where you aren't getting timely hits, you can spin that either way," said Konerko, who is 6-for-11 with RISP. "You can get negative or say, 'Look at how many situations we've had to get those hits.

"Keep doing it, and it will come. Hopefully we are taking the latter approach where we are getting guys out there and getting back in some of the games where we are behind."
