Sheffield strikes out looking

The Chicago White Sox bested the Tigers today 5-4. Chad Durbin gave up 4 runs (including 2 HRs) in 5 innings. Okay Leyland, anytime now... we need to give someone else an opportunity to start because Durbin isn't cutting it. We can't afford to throw away 1 out of every 5 games.

Jose Mesa was placed on the 15 day DL and Aquilino Lopez was brought up from AAA Toledo to fill his bullpen spot. Lopez went directly to work and looked impressive - he held the White Sox to only 1 hit over 2 innings.

Brandon Inge hit his 3rd HR on the season. Sheffield came up in the bottom of the 9th with the perfect RBI opportunity and failed to cash in. He's probably just a couple of days away from being booed. Polanco went 2 for 5 - his average is a team best .382.

Tigers record: 9-7, 2nd place

Here's hoping they shut down the CHW today - would hate to see them get swept. Especially by the Sox, and especially after the tough loss yesterday.
