KANSAS CITY -- Wednesday night's loss did more than just wipe clean the White Sox five-game winning streak. It also wiped the hair off the upper lips of several players.
Multiple White Sox players sported mustaches in recent weeks, but as their winning streak came to a halt, some decided that it was time for a change in the facial hair department. No longer among the mustachioed are Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn and Gordon Beckham.
"I think I'll survive," Konerko said. "Tired of getting ridiculed out there. My wife's happy that it's gone. And I look younger. Maybe there won't be as many old jokes because it's gone and I do look a little bit younger.
"Me and Dunn made a pact last Friday. We've been trying to get rid of them since Friday, but we kept winning games. So after last night's game, we finally said, 'Enough's enough.' We had to turn the page."
