Glover sharp, Graffanino hurt, Sox win

Two developments, one good and one bad, stood out in Sunday's 8-3 White Sox victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Comiskey Park.

The good news: Gary Glover made an adjustment and came back after a shaky start to pitch seven innings of four-hit, three-run ball, squaring his record at 6-6.

The bad news: Tony Graffanino's season may have ended in the first inning.

Graffanino slid to block an errant throw behind second base and said he "heard something pop" in his right knee. The Sox put the versatile infielder on the disabled list and scheduled him for an MRI exam Monday.

Graffanino was injured while chasing catcher Josh Paul's wild throw, which enabled Carl Crawford to continue to third after his steal of second base. The error, along with two walks, an RBI groundout and Steve Cox's double, helped give Tampa Bay a 2-0 lead in the first.

Glover said he recognized after the first inning that he needed to adjust his mechanics.

"I wasn't able to hit the spots I wanted to hit, especially to left-handed hitters," he said. "A little change in my mechanics allowed me to hit the outside corner."

Glover limited the Devil Rays to three hits and one run over the last six innings he worked. Eight of those 18 outs came on fly balls to the outfield, three on infield popups and seven on infield grounders.
