Ritchie not rich in run support

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Willie Nelson just can't wait to get on the road again. Todd Ritchie can't get home soon enough.

Ritchie spent Saturday in Florida, but it was hardly a day at the beach. The White Sox right-hander was burned by a 6-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Tropicana Field.

No big-league pitcher has lost more often this year than Ritchie (5-15), who has dropped nine consecutive road decisions. He is 1-10 away from Comiskey Park, last winning off an enemy mound on April 23 at Cleveland.

He might have to come out of a bullpen somewhere for his next victory.

"We probably have to sit down and discuss it at some length and really determine what's best for Todd Ritchie," manager Jerry Manuel said. "I don't know if it's a confidence thing. I thought he threw some pitches well tonight, but he still gets a loss. Sometimes that's kind of tough to deal with."

Ritchie said being removed from the rotation would only be another blow to an already disastrous season.

"Do I want to go to the bullpen? No. Will I pitch out of the bullpen if I have to? Yes," he said. "It's been a terrible year for me, but it's one bad year out of a lot. But I don't give up hope. I have confidence in myself."
