Same Old Story

Top Blogs Just In: Behind Gavin Floyd (2-3), The White Sox dropped the opener in Cleveland tonight by a score of 9-4. Floyd was tagged for eight runs and 11 hits over five innings. Jimmy Gobble, who was brought up from Charlotte earlier in the day, replaced Floyd in the sixth, allowing one run on two hits in one inning of work.

Off The Hook: Carl Pavano (3-3) won his third straight outing with the help of his breaking ball. Pavano scattered 10 hits on four runs over 6 1/3. Pavano was masterful in getting his breaking ball to work for him, as Sox bats were fishing most of the night.

Need a Hit? Getting hits did not seem to be an issue for the Sox tonight, as they cracked out a dozen. Getting hits when they needed them was another issue. The Sox stranded 16 baserunners with four in scoring position. Konerko (.307), Thome (.212), Pierzynski (.301) and Fields (.255) all had multi-hit games.
