White Sox

After dropping the first game of the series Monday, Chris Sale and the White Sox look to bounce back against the Tampa Bay Rays tonight. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet
Normally steady, the back end of the White Sox bullpen surrendered a run in each of the final three innings Monday night, leading to a 5-4 loss to the Rays on the South Side.
With nobody out in the bottom of the ninth Monday, Alexei Ramirez aggressively went home trying to score the game-tying run on a single to shallow center. It didn't work, leaving third base coach Joe McEwing taking the blame.
