I hate it when they do this.

White Sox last four:

vs Cubs: L, 2-6
vs Cubs: L, 0-2
at Tigers: W, 2-1
at Tigers: W, 4-3 (13 innings)

It's tough to watch when they aren't scoring runs.

Both wins over the Tigers have been excruciating: in the first game of the series, Dustin Hermanson allowed a leadoff triple in the bottom of the ninth, then somehow managed to get three outs and strand the guy at third. Tonight, after Frank Thomas hit a solo homer to put the White Sox ahead in the 13th, the Tigers had the bases loaded with one out in the bottom half of the inning. Brandon Inge struck out on a 2-2 pitch for the second out, then Placido Polanco grounded out to second.

Whew.

Talk about dodging bullets.

A few more of these one-run games and you can pretty much stick a fork in me--and it's not even July. The college football and college hoops seasons are hard enough by themselves.
