=== Chicago White Sox Team Report - July 11 ===

(Sports Network) - The White Sox can complete a three-game sweep of the lowly Seattle Mariners in Chicago today. Former Mariner Freddy Garcia will take the hill for the White Sox in this game. The righty is just 5-8 this season, but his 3.42 ERA is a more accurate reflection of how he has pitched. Garcia was last in action on July 6th and picked up a loss to Anaheim after yielding four earned runs on seven hits in eight innings. Although he is just 2-5 on the road, Garcia owns an impressive 2.84 ERA on the opposition's field. This game will mark the first time that Garcia has ever faced Seattle as a major league pitcher. Yesterday, Mark Buehrle pitched eight solid innings and Paul Konerko had a homer and two RBI as the White Sox edged the Mariners, 3-2, at U.S. Cellular Field. Buehrle (9-2) allowed two runs on nine hits with two strikeouts to record the victory. Shingo Takatsu worked a perfect ninth to nail down his fourth save of the 2004 season. Joe Crede added an RBI for the White Sox, who have won three straight after losing five in a row. Chicago won despite collecting just three hits off loser Matt Thornton (0-2). Prior to yesterday's game, Chicago placed first baseman/designated hitter Frank Thomas on the 15-day disabled list with left ankle tendinitis. The move is retroactive to July 7. Thomas will be fitted with a special brace and he must rest the ankle for two- to-three weeks. If the pain does not subside, season-ending surgery becomes the most likely option for Thomas. Konerko has hit 16 of his 22 homers at home this season. Chicago holds a 3-2 edge in the season series between the two teams, somewhat overshadowing the fact that Seattle has won nine of the last 14 meetings overall.
