Short Take: Sox come up short in slugfest

After wilting in the Miami heat and humidity for 2 games, the White Sox offense awoke from its slumber Friday night in Montreal. Maybe a little cold Canadian air was just what the doctor ordered for this bunch to get back to their winning ways. Saturday, the Sox offense was firing on all cylinders again, but atrocious pitching from the Sox staff provided enough octane for Montreal to walk away with a 17-14 win.

The oh-so-unlucky 5th starter spot came up for the Sox today, and Ozzie Guillen looked to Arnie Munoz, just called up from AA Birmingham to try and fill the gaping void. Sorry folks, but the void looks even more gaping after Munoz's performance tonight. The not-even-22-year-old Munoz lasts just 3 innings, surrendering 11 runs on 10 hits, and staking the Expos to a seemingly insurmountable 11-1 lead upon his exit. The ultimate lowlight for Munoz? Giving up 2 home runs (and a total of 6 RBI) in ONE INNING to the normally slappy Juan Rivera. Exit Munoz, and enter Cliff "Not Him Again" Politte, who gives up 3 more runs and now looks like Billy Koch's successor as bullpen whipping boy. Mike Jackson and Neal Cotts also make lackluster appearances...but at least Shingo Takatsu was able to avoid the mediocrity bug and clean up Cotts' mess, keeping the Sox within striking distance.

Admit it Sox fans...even in a losing effort, the Sox offense is still a blast to watch. Juan Uribe was a one-man wrecking crew tonight, accounting for half the Sox offensive output with a 3 run jack, 3 run double and RBI single. Seems liek just about every time the Sox were slipping away, Uribe came up to the plate and did a great job of putting them right back in it. Sandy Alomar, Timo Perez, Willie Harris and Aaron Rowand also contributed with multiple hit nights, and Ross Gload ripped a seeing-eye grounder under Jose Vidro's glove to bring home a couple runs..again, keeping the Sox in the game. Any hopes Carlos Lee had of getting another hit streak going were dashed as the big Panamanian turns in an 0 for 6 performance tonight.

Sunday afternoon is the finale of the Sox interleague jaunt, with Jon Garland facing Zach Day at 12:05 CDT.

Ozzieball Update:
 Bunts? Not many, but station to station baseball is back in vogue for the Sox. Perez, Uribe and Gload mash out some singles in the 7th, bringing home runners and reloading the offense.
