Wilfredo Ledezma has had an excellent year, but he' still just 23, and showed some of his inexperience on Tuesday night.
Ledezma didn't pitch poorly, but he struggled throughout the night. For the game, he pitched 6 innings, giving up 5 runs on 7 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts.
Jon Garland got the win for Chicago, pitching 7 innings with 4 earned runs. Ledezma's loss was his first of the season.
At the plate, Carlos Pena had the big hit of the night, a Grand Slam off Garland in the bottom of the 3rd. It was his 19th Home Run of the season. Bobby Higginson also went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, driving in Brandon Inge in the 9th. But their comeback effort was too little, too late.
The White Sox were led by the top 4 hitters in their order, as each (Aaron Rowand, Juan Uribe, Carlos Lee and Paul Konerko) managed 2 hits. Uribe drove in 3 runs, including launching his 17th Home Run of the year. Rowand also scored 2 runs, and Lee drove in 2.
