"One hit, one strikeout--pretty much a neutral night for Magglio. But hey...at least he's not whining about his contract publicly"

Short Take: Sox hand Zambrano first loss

Folks, can you think of any worse a venue for baseball than Tropicana Field? Ironically located in the middle of Florida's suncoast, visits to this air-conditioned miserable morgue usually lead to crummy outings by our beloved Sox, as evidenced by last nights anemic 3-0 loss to Lou Pinella's perennial cellar-dwelling Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Sox players must have sampled enough Florida sunshine today to wake them up though as they walk away from the big Juicebox with a 4-1 win, evening their weekend tilt with the Rays at one game apiece. After a rough outing against a D'Rays no-namer last night, they hand Tampa Bay "ace" Victor Zambrano his first loss of the season.

Scott Schoeneweis came into the rotation as a pretty big question mark for the Sox this season, and had most of our fan community thinking of clever nicknames such as "Blowenwipe" and "Slowenweis" to describe his mediocre mound presence. Big Scho shook of some of the criticism with a quality start in Yankee Stadium last week, and continued to do so with a 5-hit, 1 unearned run outing today in St Pete, picking up his first win of the season. Scott didn't allow a single Tampa Bay hitter to get past second base last night, in a scene oddly reminiscient off the Sox performance the night before. Cliff Politte rasied the blood pressure of a few fans tonight with his short relief outing, but in the end gets the inning over with the bases loaded. Damaso Marte picks up the save and absolves himself completely in this humble correspondent's eyes for his colossal chokejob at the beginning of the season, picking up his first save along the way.

White Sox hitters didn't set off any metaphorical fireworks tonight, but still managed to scratch out 4 runs. Sox fans were treated to a display of smallball at its finest, with one run scoring as a result of Timo Perez grounding into a double play (sorry, no padding the RBI total there) and another coming as a result of an almost-certain Juan Uribe GIDP which he somehow managed to beat out to allow the twice-plunked Ross Gload to score. Frank Thomas takes time out from his seemingly incessant whining about his contract to draw 3 walks, 2 of which lead to him scoring runs. About the only hole in this lineup tonight was Jose Valentin, who fanned twice.

The Sox bid adieu to Pinella's team in Pinellas County with a 12:15 start. Estaban Loaiza looks for his 3rd win of the young season agains Jeremi Gonzalez.

Juan Uribe

He may be a little crazy in the field, but he accounted for 1/2 the runs scored tonight.
