One night after cranking out three long home runs in a decisive victory, the Rangers offense went completely cold at U.S. Cellular Field. Kevin Millwood took the loss, allowing five runs on five hits and four walks over five innings, but anything short of perfection would not have altered the result. Jerry Hairston was ejected after a close play at first in the third, and Sammy Sosa was picked off after walking in the fifth.
Mark Buehrle faced the minimum 27 batters en route to his first no-hitter, the 16th in White Sox history. The southpaw struck out eight and walked one, who was promptly picked off. Jermaine Dye clubbed a grand slam and Jim Thome two solo homers, the 476th and 477th of his career.
