  • 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.
