The red-hot White Sox got to wear red on the hottest day of the season Sunday, as they donned throwback uniforms while facing the depleted Indians.

And their bats stayed torrid in a 12-6 victory that moved them to within a half-game of the first place Indians.

Paul Konerko remained the hottest of the hot, hitting his 11th homer and finishing the day with a .399 batting average.

The victory was the ninth in the last 10 games and gave the Sox a sweep of the Indians.

"It's always important (to win division games) because it's head-to-head, especially a team in front of you," manager Robin Ventura said. "You better do well in your division or otherwise you are counting on other people to do your job. Not that you can plan it that you are going to only win your division games but it is nice to be able to."
