Do this as a list comprehension?

Is it possible to write a list comprehension for this so as to produce a
list of two-item tuples?
base_scores = range(8, 19)
score_costs = [0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3]
print zip(base_scores, score_costs)
I can't think of how the structure of the list comprehension would work
in this case, because it seems to require iteration over two separate
sequences to produce each item in the tuple.
zip seems to work fine anyway, but my immediate instinct was to try a
list comprehension (until I couldn't figure out how!). And I wasn't sure
if list comps were capable of doing everything a zip could do.
