On the field: Despite all the Orioles'...


On the field: Despite all the Orioles' runs and hits, first baseman Rafael Palmeiro ran his string of hitless at-bats to 24, striking out and hitting into a double play among four at-bats. Palmeiro's last hit came July 3; that night, he hit two homers against the Minnesota Twins.

In the dugout: Part of the reason Terry Bevington replaced quiet Gene Lamont as White Sox manager is because Bevington is more emotional; his feelings are apparent in his body language as well as his words. When he went to the mound to pull Alex Fernandez with the White Sox down 7-0 in the fourth, Bevington gave a disgusted, waist-high wave to the bullpen for reliever Scott Radinsky.

In the clubhouse: "I don't think anybody should be happy. One of the worst statements is, 'We'll get them tomorrow.' We want to get them now." -- Bevington, after the Orioles completed a four-game sweep of the White Sox
