Chris Sale has good 1st outing for Sox

By

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Chris Sale struck out three over 2 1-3 scoreless innings in his spring training debut Friday as the White Sox lost to the Cleveland Indians 9-7.

Sale, a 17-game winner last year, allowed two hits -- both singles -- struck out one and walked none.

Chicago took a 4-0 lead against Justin Masterson, Cleveland's opening-day starter, who gave up six hits in 2 2-3 innings. Dayan Viciedo homered leading off the second and, two batters later, Brent Morel hit a two-run drive. Hector Gimenez added an RBI single in the third.

Cleveland rallied on a pair of three-run homers. Matt Carson connected off Erik Johnson in the fourth for his third home run of the exhibition season, and Mike McDade went deep against loser Leyson Septimo in the sixth.

David Huff won despite giving up Marcus Semien's three-run homer in the sixth.
