Millwood unravels, White Sox lead

Through the first five innings, Texas Rangers starter Kevin Millwood was able to minimize damage. But he couldn't do it in the sixth.

The White Sox scored two runs on three hits off Millwood, taking a 4-2 lead. White Sox outfielder Carlos Quentin had a two-run single and Jermaine Dye followed with a single. That ended Millwood's night as he left with one out and runners on the corners in the sixth after allowing all four runs on 10 hits with four strikeouts and four walks.

Rangers right-hander Frank Francisco came in and gave up an RBI-double to Jim Thome before retiring Nick Swisher and Joe Crede to end the inning as the White Sox have a 5-2 lead.

When does an "ace" become a "duece"? Maybe when the era reaches 5.11. Yep, that's what Kevin Millwood's era is now. And even worse, it doesn't seem to bother him. With this guy's expression he should be playing poker on ESPN. Instead his "highlights" there are bombs from opposing hitters. Does he care? Probably not with his contract. But even the Ranger lineup cannot catch up from the deficits he's putting them in. And I don't hear the phone ringing from other GM's inquiring about his availability.
