Short Take:  An awful showing on each side today, led by the Sox lack of offense.

Entering Tuesday, there were two main stories to the middle game of this three game set versus the hated Twins. The main story was the game itself which featured a pitching match-up that looked to be one of the best of the season. Freddy Garcia was slated to throw for the Sox and Johan Santana for the Twins. But there was also the story behind the game as fans wondered what (if anything) the Sox would do in retaliation for Monday nightís events. As it turned out, nothing much happened for the Sox on either end in losing to the Twins 7-3.

After Monday nightís loss, it didnít seem like things could get much worse for the Sox. But the Sox surprisingly managed to hit an even lower level on Tuesday than they did Monday. If you turned on the game while the White Sox were at bat, you might have thought you mistakenly stumbled onto a Charlotte Knights game. Thatís exactly what Johan Santana made Sox hitters look like tonight - a minor league team. There isnít much offense to recap, at least in terms of the Sox anyway. The Sox mustered up only 4 hits on the night, and 2 of those came after the game was pretty much decided.

The Sox failed to do any scoring early on, and left Freddy Garcia feeling like he was still in Seattle. But Garcia didnít exactly fair so well himself. The first 4 innings by Garcia were fine. He got out of an early 1st inning jam, keeping the game scoreless. But the 5th was where Garcia fell apart. He hit the first batter of the inning, Corey Koskie, possibly in retaliation for last night. After Koskie stole second base, Garcia retired the next two hitters. But this time Garcia couldnít keep the game scoreless. Consecutive doubles plated 2 runs, and another base hit scored the 3rd run of the inning. Down 3-0 and facing Santana, the Sox looked done. And they were. Garcia allowed one more in the 6th inning but still hadnít received a run of support. That changed in the 7th. Carlos Lee, the only Sox hitter who had a good day at the plate, led off with a solo homer. Paul Konerko walked and Carl Everett was hit by a pitch before Santana was yanked. The Sox failed to do anything with those runners though as a fly out and two strikeouts ended the inning. With the score 7-1, the Sox added a few meaningless runs in the 9th. Those runs came from solo home runs by Lee and Everett. Joe Borchard ended the game with a strikeout, his 3rd of the night.

The Sox try to avoid a horrible sweep tomorrow at 1:05 CDT. Esteban Loaiza must have a good outing for the Sox when he takes on Carlos Silva.

WSI's
Ozzieball Update:
 Two of the bottom three hitters hitting in the .100's is not good for offensive production. Ozzie is going to have to find ways to help this team score runs. Of course that's kind of hard to do when hitters aren't getting on base.
