Team stinks.

Short Take: Fausto Carmona turns the White Sox bats into limp noodles.

You can only hope everyone enjoyed the White Sox brief stay over .500. It lasted a little less than 24 hours. The Sox had no answer for Cleveland right-hander Fausto Carmona Wednesday night and fell back to the break-even mark with a 4-1 loss.

Carmona (6-12) was dominant over 8 1/3 innings, allowing only four hits. He fed the Sox a steady diet of sinkers at the knees and below, resulting in 16 groundball outs and six strikeouts. The Sox only got one runner to third base the whole game. That was Alexei Ramirez, who hit a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning to account for the lone Sox run.

Ace left-hander Mark Buehrle (10-6) saw his string of 18 consecutive starts allowing three earned runs or less come to an end. Buehrle did not have his best stuff as he allowed four runs on a season-high 12 hits over 7 1/3 innings.

As always, Buehrle battled and kept the team in the game. The score was tied 1-1 until the sixth when Kosuke Fukudome's RBI single scored Carlos Santana and gave the Toons the lead for good. Cleveland tacked on two more runs in the seventh on an RBI single by Shin-Soo Choo and a sac fly by Asdrubal Cabrera.

The Sox did get some nice relief work from Zach Stewart, who relieved Buehrle in the eighth and struck out five of the six men he faced.

Leading 4-1, Carmona finally ran out of gas in the ninth when he walked Carlos Quentin. Tribe closer Chris Perez walked Adam Dunn and allowed the Sox to get the tying run to the plate, but Gordon Beckham grounded out to third to end the game.

With the loss, the Sox failed to take over second place. They fall 1 1/2 games back of the Tribe and remain 3 1/2 games behind Detroit, which lost 6-5 to Minnesota. The rubber match of this three-game set will take place Thursday night at 7:10. Phil Humber (8-8, 3.67 ERA) will pitch for the Sox. He will be opposed by the Toons' ace, Justin Masterson (9-7, 2.69 ERA). The game will air on Comcast SportsNet.
