White Sox 5, Rays 0
Scott Kazmir allowed five runs for his sixth loss of the year. (Jim Prisching/AP)
The Rays didn't put up many runs this series, but against Mark Buehrle, the bats were truly lifeless. Buerhle tossed a perfect game and Tampa Bay went quietly. Scott Kazmir struggled with his command, allowing five runs on five hits and three walks through six innings as the Rays dropped three of four.
