Errors costly in 8-3 loss; Sox option Tekotte

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Errors continue to be costly for the White Sox, who committed two on Sunday, one of them leading to two unearned runs in the eighth inning of the 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
The runs scored when Alex Rios dropped a sinking fly ball in short right field off the bat of Ryan Roberts with the bases loaded and two out.
``It was a long way to run,'' manager Robin Ventura said. ``It wasn't an easy play. He just didn't get it.''
But Ventura said mistakes will prevent the Sox from putting together extended winning streaks.
``It's one of those where it's going to happen, but if we're going to get on an extended streak, you have to make those plays,'' he said.
After the game, the Sox optioned outfielder Blake Tekotte to Class AAA Charlotte. They will recall a player Tuesday when they open a three-game series in Texas.
