Bad game, bad news, bad team.

Jim Parque may have pitched his way out of the White Sox's rotation Monday, but the Sox may have a bigger problem on the immediate horizon.

Paul Konerko was removed in the fourth inning and will have a magnetic resonance imaging test performed Tuesday on his left foot.

If the foot is broken, Konerko will be lost for the rest of the season, just as his close friend, Tony Graffanino, was lost for the season Sunday with a torn right ACL.

Konerko, hitting .310 with 93 RBIs, will likely sit the next two games, but vowed to play out the season.

"Even if it is a stress fracture, I'm sure there are different degrees of that," Konerko said. "I just couldn't see myself a week or two weeks from now not playing. . . . I figure this will probably hurt the rest of the season, but I can't see it keeping me out because I know I'll have four months to rest when it's over. I don't mind the pain."

Parque suffered through some pain of a different kind. He was booed off the mound while failing to get out of the third inning, taking his third straight loss before a Half-Price Monday crowd of 15,760.

"If I've proven anything, it's [being] inconsistent," Parque said.

Parque (1-4) had control problems for the second time in three starts, walking five batters in 2 1/3 innings and watching four of them score in the Jays' six-run third. Parque was charged with five earned runs, though he left with the Sox trailing only 3-2. His ERA as a starter rose to 10.05, and his overall ERA climbed to 9.64.

Manager Jerry Manuel hinted that Rocky Biddle would replace Parque in the rotation.

"That's three questionable outings [from Parque]," Manuel said. "We expected a little more [out of him]."

Leading 2-0 in the third, Parque fell apart. Carlos Delgado's bases-loaded sacrifice fly made the score 2-1, and Parque promptly walked Vernon Wells on four pitches to load the bases again. After Josh Phelps' two-run single put the Jays on top, Parque was toast. A bases-clearing double by Dewayne Wise off Matt Ginter made it 6-2, and Toronto was on its way.

Aaron Rowand and Frank Thomas hit solo homers in the loss.
