    For the White Sox, it's just as difficult. It was more than frustrating for the White Sox . After Sunday, the Rays go home for three against Baltimore and the White Sox head to Cleveland. But veteran Kevin Youkilis still feels the White Sox can't worry about the Tigers, even with five games left after Friday. White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper told MLB.com earlier this week that Chris Sale, the first-year starter who worked Saturday, would not be coming back Wednesday on three days' rest, even if the team needed a win. Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd would be available to work on regular rest for Tuesday and Wednesday's games, although the White Sox could turn to Francisco Liriano and try to play on the Indians' weakness against left-handed starters. By winning, the Rays started a new win streak, which they will have to ride through the end of the season if they want to have any kind of chance of earning a spot in the playoffs, particularly since the Athletics came from behind to beat the Mariners, 7-4, and the Orioles defeated the Red Sox, 4-3, to remain three games ahead of the Rays for the American League's Wild Card spots.
