The White Sox still have baseball's worst combined record among their minor-league affiliates, but fortunately, minor league baseball's rules tilt in their favor.
Charlotte is out of luck, but the rest of the teams have a theoretical shot at the postseason if they can win the second-half championship. The Birmingham Barons are just about out of it, starting the second half 15-21 and six games out of first, but the others have a little more daylight.
- Winston-Salem: 17-20, but only three games back of first-place Myrtle Beach.
- Kannapolis: 19-17, two games back of Hagerstown.
The White Sox' rookie league affiliates also play by the same rules, but their seasons just flipped to Side B this past week. The Great Falls Voyagers are the only Sox affiliate with the distinction of a winning half, finishing the first 21-17. Alas, that was only good for a second-place finish, two games behind first-half champion Billings.
Sunday's box scores will appear below shortly.
