Ventura treating end of season same as rest of it

ANAHEIM -- With 12 games remaining after Friday's 6-2 loss to the Angels, it doesn't mean the White Sox are about to change their one-game-at-a-time approach that has worked so well for them all season.

"You can see the end," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "But as far as the approach, it doesn't do you any good to think about Sunday's game on Friday, unless you want to lose on Friday.

"I don't think it's really that hard now. It's actually easier because they realize games are important and you have to be focused on what you do. It's fun to play the game that night instead of thinking ahead. Again, you just put that out of the back of your mind and play. You get caught up in that and your mind can start thinking about other things."
