Beckham says slump belongs to entire team

Beckham says slump belongs to entire team

CHICAGO -- The White Sox are lacking one player to lean on during their three-game losing streak, according to second baseman Gordon Beckham.

Beckham said players like Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn could single-handedly push the White Sox to victories in weeks past.

"We're all not clicking," Beckham said. "We don't have one guy that's just tearing it up right now. Sometimes one person can carry the team. We've showed that for the last few weeks before this rough patch."

The White Sox have dropped six of seven games and five straight series to drop out of first place entering Wednesday. Six of the White Sox last seven losses have been by one or two runs.

"We just have hit a little lull in which we aren't getting the big hit or we aren't getting the runs we need in," Beckham said. "We've just got to pick it up. It'll change. It'll definitely change, we've just got to make it sooner than later."
