Here's a very scientific graph from user Y Not:
I believe that explains the game pretty well.
Adam Loewen gave up a hit to Swisher, walked Orlando Cabrera, and then Thome hit a three-run jack to start the game, and that was all the White Sox needed, since we predictably made Jose Contreras look like Roy Halladay.
Loewen did OK after the first three batters -- well, OK for Loewen. He walked five and struck out three, and threw 109 pitches in six innings, but hey. Six innings! A Christmas miracle! He still stunk, fundamentally.
Jim Johnson would be preferable to Greg Aquino, if you ask me.
