White Sox, Cubs looking to get on roll heading into postseason

The Chicago White Sox had lost no more than three straight games before clinching the franchise's first playoff berth since 2008 on Sept. 17.

Chicago has dropped seven of eight since, including six in a row entering Saturday's visit from the Chicago Cubs.

"The beautiful thing is that we are in the playoffs," White Sox reliever Aaron Bummer said. "This isn't a team that likes to dwell on things. We're a big believer in it's a new day, and each day, each day is a gift. We're going to move forward with that. It has been a tough stretch, but this doesn't mean anything in the postseason."
