Guillen: Tuesday Game 'Worst ... We Played All Year'

After a tough loss against the Colorado Rockies Tuesday night, White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen had little positive to say - this time, about his own team.

The Sox lost to the Rockies in Denver in a 13-inning game, falling 3-2 after Rockie's infielder Troy Tulowitzki got in thanks to a deep center field hit by infielder Ty Wigginton.

Sox center fielder Brent Lillibridge scrambled for the ball and threw to catcher AJ Pierzynski, but not in time to tag Tulowitzki at home.

After the game, Guillen launched into a rant, which many baseball fans - from both the north and south sides - are used to. But this time, he blamed his own team for the loss.

"The way we played today from the first inning, I don't think we should win this game," Guillen said. "We pitched well. Everything else was very bad. That was the worst game we played all year long, to me. We don't take (advantage of) opportunities over and over and over and over. When you do that over and over, baseball gods get you. We got to play good to deserve to win and we not play good today to win."

The Sox are currently 38-42, just behind the Cleveland Indians at third in the AL Central. The Sox will face the Rockies again Wednesday night at 8:40 p.m.
