Red Sox stifle champs
White Sox continue slide
Javier Vazquez struck out 10 through the first five innings, but the right-hander came up short against the Red Sox and their rookie southpaw, Kason Gabbard. The offense managed just four hits and hit into three double plays, squashing any chance for a significant rally. The South Siders have lost three in a row and five of six to fall 1 1/2 games back for the Wild Card.
