It gets embarrassing to watch the Sox lose to some of the guys who dominate them.  Miguel Ascencio was the poor slug who pitched sixteen straight balls early this year.  He comes back Tuesday night at Comiskey and looks like Pedro Martinez.  A ninth inning rally stalls and the Sox lose 3-2.

Quick--tell me the Cubs score!  Whew, I feel better already.

Incessant rain made the start of this game highly in doubt.  After waiting nearly two hours, the Sox finally took the field.  Maybe they shouldn't have?  Mark Buehrle deserved a better fate.  Trouble started in the first inning.  A double and two singles led to one KC run and an early hole for the Sox.

It hardly mattered.  Ascencio was sawing through the Sox lineup.  The Sox didn't even manage a hit off the kid until the third inning.

With no support, Buehrle got in trouble again in the sixth.  A double, a walk, and three singles led to two more KC runs.  Given how the mighty Sox "O" has been going, it looked like the Mount Everest of leads.

Jose Valentin got one run back with a solo dinger in the seventh, and an rbi single by Frank Thomas in the eighth cut the lead to one.  If Magglio Ordonez doesn't look silly striking out (0 for 3 with 2 K's on the night), maybe the Sox score again.  That one run loomed large.

Imagine that--scoring runs late in the game by our Sox.  You can actually believe they mean to win one of these games.  Who wudda thunk it?

The biggest rally came in the ninth.  Paul Konerko led off with a single, with Royce Clayton entering the game as a pinch runner.  Valentin dropped a bunt on the third base line that skidded off the chalk line and rolled fair again.  Maybe Roger Bossard the groundskeeper had something to do with that?

With tying and winning runs on base, Carlos Lee couldn't put the ball in play, striking out on a checked swing.  Beautiful.

Tony Graffanino reached base on an infield single, and Sox Fans could see a pop fly from Sandy Alomar tying the game!

Nope.  Alomar grounded to shortstop for the ol' 6-4-3 double play.  Game over.

Go get 'em tomorrow, guys.

Broke up the shutout with a solo dinger.  Clutch infield hit on a bunt during the ninth inning rally--that stalled.
