Punchless Sox shut-out for the first time this year

These things happen. The White Sox just can't seem to help but string together poor offensive showings these (early) days. David Price was on tonight, keeping the Sox considerably off-balance after an all-fastball first inning, and keeping the seven Sox baserunners seemingly miles from home. Edwin Jackson wasn't terrible, but struggled to locate his pitches early on, and it cost him. There's a lot of blame to go around for this one, though the defense was adequate (if mostly untested; Castro caught Fuld stealing second, which was refreshing). Shutouts are never fun, and a good bat showing in the near future would do a lot to snag potential jumpers from the ledge. Oh, and if this were a two word mini recap, I would simply say "Sam Fuld." 

Editoring: And Jake Peavy leaves with "discomfort" just fifteen pitches into his rehab start for Birmingham.
