Wednesday Relievers Cliff Politte, Damaso Marte and Dustin Hermanson retired eight of the final nine batters in relief of Freddy Garcia in the Sox's 4-2 victory over the Royals. "This is not a fluke," Hermanson said of the team's major-league best 20-7 record. "We're not playing well for just the first month." With great starting pitching, timely hitting and defense and a solid bullpen, who's going argue with him?
