White Sox Lose Game, First Place
The Emotional Roller-coaster That Is The 2008 Chicago White Sox continued Monday night. In spite of six and 1/3 innings of no-hit baseball from pitcher John Danks, the White Sox lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Monday night. After getting one out in the seventh, Danks saw his game unravel, culminating in a two-run double to J.D. Drew. The Red Sox added three more runs against the White Sox bullpen in the ninth. The White Sox only managed to get one run in against Josh Beckett when Nick Swisher scored on an A.J. Pierzynski sac-fly in the third. The loss, coupled with a Minnesota victory, put the White Sox back in second place by a half-game. The Pale Hose try to rebound against the visiting Kansas City Royals tonight.

Cubs Take A Break
The Cubs were off Monday, traveling to The Dirty South to take on the Atlanta Braves and Florida Marlins this week. Even odds there are more Cubs fans than Braves fan at The Ted tonight.
