Short Take: Closer, but still no cigar for White Sox

After 2 straight nights of the Red Sox scoring 10 runs against them, the White Sox were oh-so-ready to get the pesky Carmines on the plane to Toronto. But alas, there was one more game to be played, a Sunday night ESPN matchup, which once again proved to be the kiss of death for our White Sox. Boston completes the 3 game sweep at US Cellular with a 6-5 win over the White Sox, who fall to below .500 for the first time in April. If you happen to see steam clouds above US Cellular, it's just the Sox slim hopes of winning the division evaporating.

For the third night in a row, the Sox trailed before they even got the chance to come to bat. Freddy Garcia may resemble pro wrestler The Rock, but he was anything but a rock of stability in the early going. For the third night in a row, Johnny "Caveman" Damon leads off the game with a hit. Orlando Cabrera follows him with a single, and then Manny Ramirez picks up yet another RBI for the weekend as Willie Harris blows a chance to turn a double play, scoring Damon. David Ortiz knocks home Ramirez, and Jason Varitek knocks home Ortiz. Once again, 3-0 Red Sox before our boys even get up to bat.

Garcia would settle down though and give his mates a chance to get back in the game though. After giving up a solo shot to Doug Mientkiewicz to lead off the second, Big Freddy mowed through the Red Sox lineup, retiring 17 of the next 20 batters he faced and fanning 7 along the way. Meanhile, the White Sox somehow managed to scrape together enough runs to take the lead for the first time all weekend, thanks to a 3 run blast from Paul Konerko in the 5th and a 2-run shot from Carlos Lee in the 7th off Derek Lowe. Unforunately, that lead would prove to be fleeting.

The 8th inning would prove to be extra-unlucky for the White Sox. Gracia took the mound having already chucked over 110 pitches, and his fatigue was evident when he served up a solo shot to Manny Ramirez. Ozzie Guillen yanked Garcia for Damaso Marte, who's been tired since mid-June, and Marte promptly gives up a gopher ball to David Ortiz, ending up with the loss. The Sox would blow a golden opportunity to tie the game in their half of the 8th, as Manny Ramirez misplays a Ben Davis fly ball that got runners to second and third base with one out. But Ross Gload and Timo Perez pop out and fly out respectively, and the Red Sox complete the sweep.

The Sox head up I-94 to duke it out with Detroit tomorrow. Jose Contreras faces Jeremy Bonderman with a 6:05 CDT first pitch.
