Asked for his thoughts on the previous night’s game, Robin Ventura was a little more descriptive on Friday morning.

The White Sox manager only briefly addressed the media after Thursday night’s 14-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians, speaking for roughly 10 seconds. Including a 17-minute rain delay, Thursday’s loss -- the ninth in a row to Cleveland -- lasted 3 hours, 50 minutes.

Only five batters into the game the White Sox trailed 4-0 and they went on to allow 16 hits, three home runs and commit three errors.

“It’s an ugly game,” Ventura said. “I think every team has one of those games during the year where nothing goes right. Explaining it after the game, it’s not fun to sit through and watch anything. That’s how I look at it. I don’t take it as a world view. Any time you lose that way, it irks you.

"Again, with it being putting guys in different positions, things are going to happen. Once it was already out of hand, you’re trying to limit guys’ playing time, moving guys around.”
