    Scouting report: White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals

  • Sale pitches Sox past Royals Jul 21, 2014 10:13 PM
    Chris Sale pitched seven effective innings in his first outing since the All-Star break and Adam Dunn had two RBIs and scored a run to lead the White Sox to a 3-1 victory over the slumping Kansas City Royals on Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field. Sale (9-1) wasn’t at his best, allowing seven hits and a walk in seven innings, but he worked out of jams in the fourth and sixth innings. He struck out eight and now has allowed three runs or less in 14 of his 15 starts this season. Jake Petricka pitched the ninth for his fourth save. Dunn went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks as the White Sox for the fourth time in six games. Danny Valencia went 1-for-2 with a RBI for Kansas City, which has dropped four straight and seven of eight. The Royals had a team meeting before the game, but couldn’t turn around their fortunes as they dropped two games below .500 (48-50). Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie (5-9) gave up three runs on five hits in six innings to get the loss. He had been 4-0 against the White Sox with the Royals before Monday. The White Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first inning as the first four batters reached base. Adam Eaton singled, Alexei Ramirez was hit by a pitch and Jose Abreu reached on an error by Valencia at third base to load the bases. Dunn then singled up the middle against the shift — essentially hitting the ball to the normal shortstop position — to score both Eaton and Ramirez. The Royals trimmed the lead in half in the fourth. Alex Gordon singled with one out, stole second and then scored on a two-out single by Valencia. The next batter, Alcides Escobar, doubled down the left-field line and it appeared the score would be tied, but Valencia was nailed at the plate as left-fielder Alejandro De Aza and Ramirez got the ball to catcher Tyler Flowers for the putout to end the inning. The White Sox regained the two-run edge in the sixth as Dunn scored on a sacrifice fly by Gordon Beckham to make it 3-1. NOTES: Royals 1B Eric Hosmer was scratched about an hour before game time with a right hand contusion. He was hit on the hand with a pitch by Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester in Sunday’s game at Fenway Park. ... White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper is suffering from vertigo and missed a second straight game on Monday. Bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen took his place. ... K.C.’s Salvador Perez was back in the lineup after sitting out Sunday with a groin strain. He originally was going to catch but switched to DH when Hosmer was scratched. “He feels much better,” manager Ned Yost said. “He’s not a speed demon to begin with. It’s still probably going to affect him a little bit running, but he can catch and swing and do everything else.” ... Abreu doubled in the seventh to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. ... LHP Bruce Chen (1-2) takes on Scott Carroll (4-5) in the second game of the series.

  • Iowa pitchers ready to contribute to Cubs Jul 21, 2014 9:26 PM
    The I-Cubs are in healthy shape, atop the Pacific Coast League’s American Northern Division with a 54-47 record through Sunday. Starting pitchers Kyle Hendricks and Tsuyoshi Wada made the all-star team, while Dallas Beeler, and lefties Chris Rusin and Eric Jokisch also have pitched effectively. With the Cubs’ trade of ace Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland on July 4, the big-league team has a couple of starting-rotation slots open for the second half of the season. Unlike the last couple of seasons, however, the Cubs appear to have depth at Class AAA to utilize.

  • Ventura can’t say enough about White Sox’ ace Jul 21, 2014 11:47 PM

  • Astros beat White Sox 11-7 Jul 20, 2014 5:29 PM
    Matt Dominguez hit a two-run homer and a tiebreaking RBI double, and the Houston Astros tied their season high with 17 hits in an 11-7 win over the White Sox on Sunday that prevented a three-game sweep at U.S. Cellular Field. Chicago fell behind 4-0 early and tied the score 7-all in the sixth on Alexei Ramirez’s RBI double, Jose Abreu’s run-scoring single and a run-scoring two-out grounder by Dayan Viciedo that went through the legs of All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve for Houston’s second error of the inning. Daniel Webb (5-3) allowed RBI doubles in the seventh to Dominguez and L.J. Hoes, and Marwin Gonzalez followed with a two-run single. Dominguez had three hits and four RBIs. Tony Sipp (2-1) pitched 1-1 scoreless innings as Houston stopped a three-game skid. Josh Fields and Chad Qualls got three straight outs each. Houston’s Jarred Cosart allowed four runs, seven hits and four walks in five innings. John Danks (8-7) last a season-low 4 1-3 innings, giving up a season-high 12 hits and seven runs. NOTES: Hoes filled in for Astros OF George Springer, who was held out because of soreness in his right knee and quadriceps. ... Chicago manager Robin Ventura was non-committal about the closer role, which Jake Petricka and Zach Putnam shared in recent weeks. Matt Lindstrom (left ankle surgery) could return next month, while Thompson also was a potential candidate. Prior to the game, Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte, where he converted all six of his save chances. RHP Felipe Paulino was transferred to the 60-day DL. ... Ventura had a rooting interest in the upcoming Hall of Fame induction of Frank Thomas, his former teammate. “He was a dominant player in his era, and that will stand the test of time as far as his place with the White Sox,” Ventura said. ... White Sox LHP Chris Sale is to make his first post-All-Star game start versus the Kansas City Royals on Monday night.

  • No quantity of quality for Cubs starters Jul 21, 2014 7:55 PM
    The Cubs are 2-11 since the July 4 blockbuster trade that sent pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland.
