    Lowe Makes it 6 in a Row? Umm No.

    Sox sweep sox after 6-5 win.
    A few strange things happened Sunday: The Red Sox swept the White Sox, only the second time this year the Red Sox have swept a .500 team on the road. The Sox won 6 games in a row, the longest win streak of the season. Lowe could have won his third game in a row. He didn't because he sucks, but Manny and Ortiz don't suck and just three pitches after Lowe gave up the lead and his win Manny Ortiz went back to back jacks to take back the lead. However, most importantly the Red Sox are 5.5 games out of first place in the AL East. Just a few days ago they were 10 games out, but thats what happens when you sweep the White Sox, and the Angels swept the Yankees. Not too bad for a team that is basicly on the DL.

    INJURIES: Red Sox -
    INF-OF David McCarty (wrist), 15-day DL;
    INF Pokey Reese (rib cage), 15-day DL;
    3B Kevin Youkilis (ankle), 15-day DL;
    OF Trot Nixon (quadriceps), 15-day DL;
    LHP Lenny Dinardo (finger), 15-day DL;
    RHP Jason Shiell (elbow), 15-day DL;
    RHP Reynaldo Garcia (elbow), 60-day DL;
    LHP Brad Thomas (elbow), 60-day DL;
    RHP Scott Williamson (forearm), 60-day DL;
    OF Ellis Burks (knee), 60-day DL.
