White Sox Vs. Cardinals Final Score: Chicago Falls 1-0 In St. Louis

The Chicago White Sox put runners on the corners with the team's best hitter, first baseman Paul Konerko, at the plate in the top of the ninth, but St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte forced a game-ending double-play and the South Siders fell 1-0 at Busch Stadium on Tuesday.

Chicago had no hope against St. Louis starter Lance Lynn. The 25-year old righty improved to 10-2 on the season by allowing no runs and just four hits over 7.1 innings.

White Sox starter Jake Peavy pitched valiantly, but fell to 6-2 on the season. Peavy threw seven innings and allowed four hits and one earned run while striking out six.

The game's only run came via Carlos Beltran's 19 homer of the year in the third inning off Peavy.
