White Sox Sat Mar 21 2009

White Sox trounced by Cubs.

The White Sox and Cubs hooked up in Cactus League action today. This is the fourth of five meetings between these two this spring. The Cubs took the first game with a decisive 13-0 victory, the White Sox would take the next two games 7-6 and 4-3 respectively. Victory number four would belong to the Cubs 13-2.

The White Sox ace Mark Buehrle was on the hill for the Southsiders today while the Cubs had newly named fifth starter Sean Marshall going for them. Buehrle didn't have his best stuff today. He surrendered eight earned runs on seven hits, which included a pair of home runs. He would only last 3 2/3 innings before hitting the showers.

The White Sox bullpen was no help either. Things went from bad to worse when White Sox reliever Scott Linebrink entered the game. Linebrink stuck around for 1/3 of an inning. He would give up a three run homer to the Cubs Jake Fox in the top of the sixth.

On the positive side of things Chris Getz would single home the White Sox first run in the bottom of the third. Josh Fields hit his second home run of the spring. A solo shot in the bottom of the fifth off of Marshall.They would scatter eight hits through out the game. The White Sox Cactus League record slips to 10-14.

The White Sox will face The Oakland A's tomorrow at 3:05 p.m. CT.
