"Clipped out the article on him in Newsday and put it in a scrapbook. Those memories are priceless."

Short Take: Sox offense rushed to nearby hospital due to apparent lack of vital signs.

Jeremy Bonderman!?

A guy who had not won since July 7, who was 0-4 in that time, shut the Sox down on Monday night. Not that that has been very hard to do lately, but still, Bonderman threw a complete game shutout for the first time in his career as the Tigers handed the Sox their fifth straight loss, in extra embarrassing fashion, 7-0.

This one was over before it started, really. One on hand, you had Bonderman, who dominated the Sox line-up all night long. On the other hand, was Jose Contreras, who lost for the first time in White Sox pinstripes. He could never find the plate, and sacrificed five runs in five innings while walking seven and allowing six more hits. But it didnít matter. Cy Young himself could have taken the mound for the Sox and he would have probably died again before this line-up ever cracked that vaunted Detroit Tiger pitching staff.

The Tigers got all the runs they would ultimately need in the second. With one out, Contreras walked Craig Monroe to load the bases. Brandon Inge hit a sacrifice fly to score Rondell White and a double by Nick Logan scored Carlos Guillen. In the fourth, with the Sox still firmly stuck in neutral, Carlos Guillen continued to kill the Sox, as he doubled the deficit with a two-run homer. Two singles by Carlos Pena and Craig Monroe, and a two walks to Omar Infante and Bobby Higginson added a fifth run.

Well, you get the point. The Tigers scored two more runs off reliever Mike Jackson in the 7th, as he continues to prove to everyone but Ozzie Guillen and Kenny Williams, apparently, that he has no business on a Major League Baseball teamís roster. Josh Stewart pitched a solid ninth, allowing only a hit, but he erased it on a double play. So I guess that was nice.

And it wasnít even like the Sox had chances to score go by the wayside. Joe Borchardís single to lead off the third was the only time the Sox put the lead-off man on and the Sox only had two base runners at the same time twice; once in the 8th when Carlos Lee drew a 2-out walk and then again in the ninth, when Juan Uribe singled to left with two outs, however, by then the score was 7-0 and it was looking pretty academic.

Anyway, the snoozer of a loss drops the Sox to two games under .500 for the first time all year as they lose their 20th in the last 28. The nightmare continues tomorrow Jon Garland takes the hill against Wilfredo Ledezma at Comerica. Game time is 6:05 PM Central time and it will be aired on Fox Sports Net. Donít look now, but weíre only 2 games up on 4th place.
