Tribune staff reporterWhite Sox pitching dug too many holes Saturday night and this time the Sox's bats weren't big enough to keep lifting them out. The Sox's eight-game winning streak came to an end with a 10-6 loss to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, a defeat that cost the Sox a...

Tribune staff reporterFelix Diaz, who has lost two of his three starts, is in the mix for now, but it will be up to Scott Schoeneweis to see how the White Sox's rotation shapes up after the All-Star break. Diaz yielded three runs on two home runs in Saturday's first inning,...
Tribune staff reporterMany among the crowd of 12,189 at U.S. Cellular Field made for the exits after the eighth inning Wednesday. That's a habit White Sox fans may have to break. The Sox pulled out another victory in their final at-bat, scoring five runs in the ninth to...

Tribune staff reporterThe biggest difference between the Minnesota Twins and the White Sox the last couple of seasons is simple: The Twins found ways to win games, and the Sox didn't. That was illustrated again Friday night when the Twins scored twice in the eighth inning...
Tribune staff reporterFriday evening at Comiskey Park started with Chicago legend Studs Terkel throwing out the ceremonial first pitch wearing a wool hat and a long red scarf. His toss landed just short of home plate, not bad for a 90-year-old man making his first start in 42-...
Tribune staff reporterIn the fourth inning, Bartolo Colon struck out one batter with a curveball, another on a tailing fastball and a third with an 83 m.p.h. changeup. Colon can still blow hitters away with a triple-digit heater, but now he's equally content to reach into his...
Tribune staff reporterFor a team so prodigious when it comes to hitting home runs, the White Sox are trying to perfect the diminishing art of "small ball." Manager Ozzie Guillen insists upon it. The Sox deployed four sacrifice bunts and Joe Crede's game-winning sacrifice fly...

Tribune staff reporterSandy Alomar Jr. was a bit preoccupied when he heard that the White Sox needed him to pinch-hit in the 11th inning Thursday night. "I got caught off guard," he said. "I didn't remember they had [lefty] Graeme Lloyd, so I was in the [bathroom] when they...
Tribune staff reporterFeeling "chills, lots of chills" from a wildly cheering, joyous crowd, left-hander Mark Buehrle propelled the White Sox into first place Friday night. Buehrle beat Chicagoland native Mark Mulder, another of baseball's best left-handers, in a 3-2...
