"Magglio rests yet again. Must be a pretty bad strain."

Short Take: Fifth starter spot a black hole once again

Every time the fifth spot in the Sox rotation rolls around, just about every Sox fan out there has no choice but to reach for the antacid. Danny Wright was awful. Felix Diaz was atrocious. Neal Cotts sure looks good, but throws bad. Jon Ruach wins this week's episode of "Who Wants To be a Fifth Starter?" and fails miserably, and the Sox fall 5-1 to the AL West-leading Halos.

Big Jon Rauch took the hill for the Sox, sporting a major league uniform for the first time since 2002. For the fiest 3 innings, Rauch turned in a decent performance, getting popouts or groundouts when he needed to, and getting 2 great plays at the plate from his outfield. By the time the 4th ining rolled around, Rauch had regressed right back to his 2002 form, giving up 3 runs on 3 hits before even recording an out. By the time the frame was over, Rauch had given up 5 runs on 5 hits to light-hitting chaps named Davanon and Kotchman. Rauch left the game and left town, leaving all the hype and positive ink about him somewhere in the dust on the interstate between Chicago and Charlotte. Let's give credit where cerdit is due...the Sox bullpen performed admirably, with Jon Adkins, Cliff Politte and Neal Cotts holding the Angels scoreless for the rest of the game.

Even with the bullpen trying as hard as they could to hold the Angels at bay, the lone Sox run came off a Paul Konerko home run in the 7th inning. Aside from the red-hot Konerko, th rest of the Sox offense was ice cold. Carlos Lee did managed to extend his hitting streak to 16 games with a 4th inning single, but his attempt to sneak over to scoring position ended up with him getting pickled. The only other Sox to record hits were Miguel Olivo, Frank Thomas, and Willie Harris. Jose Valentin continues his flirtation with utter futility, striking out 4 times.

The rubber match for the Sox and Angels is at 2:05 CDT tomorrow with Scott Schoeneweis facing off against former teammate John Lackey.

Ozzieball Update:
 With Ozzie out of town for his son's graduation, the team seems to forget how smallball is played.
