White Sox Update

July 19, 2002|By Joe Christensen

The Orioles lost three of four against the White Sox in Chicago during their 4-11 start in April and haven't seen them since. While the Orioles have recovered to turn this into a respectable season, the White Sox have gone in the other direction. They led the American League Central on May 25 but have gone 17-32 since then and enter today trailing the Minnesota Twins by 11 games. The Orioles had no answer for White Sox leadoff man Kenny Lofton in April. In that four-game series at Comiskey Park, Lofton reached base 12 of the 16 times he came to the plate. He had 10 hits and two walks leading to six runs and was batting .426 when that series ended. He enters today batting .252, and the White Sox are looking to trade him, as part of an attempt to make room for their younger players.
