"Warm night in Chicago...perfect night for Maggs to head down the ballpark, throw on some workout shorts and show off the scar to his teammates."

Short Take: Late late rally falls short

Over the past decade, no team has lived up to the cliche "always a bridesmaid, never a bride" better than the Atlanta Braves. Somehow, some way, Ted Turner's boys always managed to tear it up during the course of the regular seaon, only to succumb to an early exit when October rolls around. Bobby Cox's teams have struck fear in the heart of many an opponent throughout the majors, but this year they limped into Chicago for a 3 game set against our beloved White Sox with a 29-30 record and a lineup of struggling big names like Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones and J. D. Drew. Somehow, the big name Braves manage to put the scuffling and struggling behind them for a night, knocking off the mostly-lifeless Sox in the first game of their interleague set 6-4 at US Cellular Field.

Scott Schoeneweis got the start for the Sox tonight, looking to rebound from a rough walk-filled outing in Seattle this past weekend. Sure enough, Scott shook off the walk problems, but every strike he threw seemed to end up getting laced for a double by Braves hitters. The Braves jumped on Schoeneweis early and often, tallying 2 runs in the second frame and 3 more in the third, handing the big lefty his second straight loss and dropping his record to 5-4.

Schoeneweis didn't get much help at all from his offense, woth the Sox failing to tally back-to-back hits until the 9th inning. Juan Uribe and Sandy Alomar recorded singles early on, and all in all Sox hitters only reached base 4 times against Braves starter Jaret Wright who had the offense that put up back-to-back double-digit performances downright handcuffed. It wasn't until the usually feared John Smoltz came on for Atlanta in the 9th that things at least got mildly interesting. Willie Harris singled to lead the inning off, and was followed a batter later by a Frank Thomas walk. Carlos Lee, who looked downright wretched in his 3 previous appearances, ripped a double to deep left field to finally put the Sox on the board and extend his hitting streak to 25 games, scoring Harris. The suddenly resurgent Jose Valentin jacked a 3-run tater to bring the score to 6-4. Paul Konerko followed with a single, brining the tying runj to the plate in the form of Timo Perez..but alas, Perez struck out to end the game and stifle any hopes of a comeback. Look on the bright side though Sox fans...these guys won't go down without a fight! Sox fans can also take consolation in the fact that the Phillies scored 5 in the 9th to knock off the Twins.

Interleague action continues for our boys in pinstripes tomorrow at 6:05 as Estaban Loaiza faces John Thomson.

Ozzieball Update:
 8 innings of pops and taps followed by one big inning? Hardly a template for smallball.
