White Sox Split in Cleveland
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Eric Wedge's final home game was like so many others this season: empty seats, a young lineup and a loss.

Mark Buehrle pitched six shutout innings and Paul Konerko drove in the only run as the Chicago White Sox beat Cleveland 1-0 to split a season-ending doubleheader Wednesday night, ending Wedge's seven-year managerial run at home with the Indians.

Wedge's firing, and the dismissal of his coaching staff, was announced a few hours before the opener, won by the Indians 5-1. Despite being let go with six games left, the dedicated Wedge wanted to finish what has been one of the most disappointing seasons in recent team history.
