Early hole too deep

White Sox 9, Red Sox 5
Junichi Tazawa allowed 10 hits for the second time in four Major League starts. (AP)
After escaping his last start despite allowing eight hits, Junichi Tazawa watched Chicago make the most of its 10 knocks in the righty's four-inning start. Boston rallied, thanks in part to two J.D. Drew homers and an Alex Gonzalez shot, but with such a large early deficit, Nick Green was pressed into relief duty.
