Tribe loses second straight

Travis Hafner and Jermaine Dye both homered but it was Dye’s two-run shot in the eighth that sent the White Sox to a 5-4 victory Friday night. The Tribe took the lead in the sixth on Hafner’s three-run bomb but then it was Chicago’s right fielder’s time to shine. Dye singled home a run in the sixth and delivered the big homer two innings later. Rafael Betancourt gave up the costly late inning runs for the Tribe and Cliff Lee gave up four runs in 7 2/3 innings.

“We did a real poor job with runners in scoring position,” manager Eric Wedge said. “We had some great opportunities. We just didn’t finish it off and get a big hit.”

In other news, left-hander Scott Sauerbeck was designated for assignment and Rafael Perez was recalled from AA to take his place in the bullpen. I think we all can agree a change needed to be made in regards to Sauerbeck. From his performance on the mound to his arrest, things obviously weren’t working out for Scotty this season.
