Deja Vu. yet another one run loss.

Cleveland needed to come out of the gates swinging after dropping 5 of their last 6 games before the All Star break.

well, that simply didnt happen.

Kevin Millwood has to be at his wits end. It seems everytime hes pitched hes gone out there and completely shutdown teams only to have his offense fail to get on base and score runs. The story has been no different for Jake Westbrook as well.

All it took was an rbi double off the bat of Frank Thomas in the first inning to build an insermountable one run lead backed by Jose Contreras who left Clevelands offense with absolutely no answers.

The Tribes only real threat came in the 4th when they would load the bases but could not capitalize.

Millwood threw 8 brilliant innings with 9 strike outs and the lone run on 6 hits. He now drops to 3-8 with an era of 3.38

3 pivotal games remain against the sox, they have to win the next 3.

Note: This was the 23rd one run game the Chicago White Sox have won this year. 35 of their games have been won by 4 runs or fewer. Yes, they have a great bullpen which is 3rd to that of the Tribe but tonight there was simply no excuse for cleveland getting shut out.

Scott Sauerbeck, the indians other left handed reliever is due to see more time with the confidence in Arthur Rhodes shaken. Game time tomorrow night is 7:05.
