Javier Vazquez couldn't avoid the one big inning, allowing four runs in the third frame of an otherwise solid start against the Rangers. The offense couldn't cover for Vazquez's mishaps, managing just three singles off Texas starter Vicente Padilla during his eight innings of work.
A four-run third inning, which saw the Rangers bat around against Javier Vazquez, was more than enough for Vicente Padilla, who was stellar in shutting down the White Sox. Hank Blalock paced the offensive attack with a homer, double and two RBIs.
