"Every inning we'd get a little momentum, and they just kept taking it back," said Chicago manager Robin Ventura, whose team lost its third straight game. "Eventually, they kept on scoring. It was good to take those leads, but you've got to be able to hold them at some point."

  • White Sox beat Boston 4-0 Jul 7, 2014 10:36 PM
    Scott Carroll pitched 6 2-3 innings of one-hit ball, and Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer on Monday night to lead the White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Making the eighth — and best — start of his career, Carroll (3-5) walked two and struck out five while shutting down the defending World Series champions. Adam Dunn hit a solo homer in the second inning and doubled and scored on Viciedo’s home run in the fourth. A.J. Pierzynski’s third-inning single was the lone hit for Boston off Carroll. Jackie Bradley Jr. singled off Javy Guerra to lead off the eighth for the only other Red Sox hit. Clay Buchholz (3-5) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk, and struck out seven in seven innings. The Red Sox have lost six of seven games and 12 of 17 to fall into last place in the AL East. The start of the game was delayed by 39 minutes because of severe weather moving through the area. There were two brief but torrential downpours during the game that sent fans scurrying but didn’t stop play. NOTES: Carroll allowed seven runs on 10 hits and three walks in six innings in his previous start. ... The Red Sox won a manager’s challenge at first base even though replays showed that Jim Joyce’s original call, that Mike Napoli’s foot came off the base, was correct. ... The Red Sox activated 1B/OF Mike Carp from the 15-day disabled list and optioned INF Jonathan Herrera to Triple-A Pawtucket. ... The Red Sox fell to 2-5 against Chicago teams, having been swept by the Cubs at home last week in a three-game interleague series.

  • Noesi helps White Sox edge Mariners Jul 6, 2014 8:09 PM
    Hector Noesi pitched five-hit ball into the seventh inning for his first win in a month, leading the White Sox to a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Noesi (3-6) struck out five and walked two in 6 2-3 innings, a crisp performance against one of his former teams. The right-hander pitched for Seattle for parts of three seasons before he was cut in April. Chicago finished with just two hits after it had four in Saturday’s 3-2 loss in 14 innings. But Conor Gillaspie scored on a wild pitch in the first and Noesi combined with two relievers on a five-hitter. Eric Surkamp got Robinson Cano to fly out with the bases loaded for the final out of the seventh, and Jake Petricka pitched two innings for his third save in four chances. The solid relief work came one day after the White Sox blew a 2-0 lead in the ninth inning. Seattle right-hander Taijuan Walker (1-1) lasted just four innings in his second start of the season. The 21-year-old Walker, one of baseball’s top pitching prospects, struggled with his control in his first loss in five major league appearances. The White Sox used Walker’s wildness to grab the lead in the first. Gillaspie walked with two outs, advanced to third on Jose Abreu’s single and scored when Walker threw his first of two wild pitches on ball four to Adam Dunn. Walker then got Alexei Ramirez to bounce into a fielder’s choice, ending the threat. The White Sox left a runner in scoring position in each of the first five innings. Walker allowed two hits and struck out three while throwing 83 pitches on a warm, humid day. He tossed six innings in a 10-4 victory at Houston last Monday in his season debut. Dustin Ackley and Brad Miller had two hits apiece for the Mariners, who had won five of six. Gillaspie also walked in the third before he left with a bruised right knee after he was hit by a pitch from Dominic Leone in the fifth inning. Gillaspie took a few shaky steps toward first before he was replaced by pinch-runner Leury Garcia. Second base umpire Dana DeMuth also departed in the fifth after colliding with White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham. The game continued with three umpires. NOTES: Seattle ace Felix Hernandez will make his next start Friday against AL West-leading Oakland. Hernandez’s next turn was slated for Thursday, but manager Lloyd McClendon said he wanted his best pitcher going up against the A’s. McClendon also said he isn’t sure yet who will start Thursday against Minnesota. ... Mariners CF James Jones got the day off. Endy Chavez started in center. ... Petricka has a string of eight consecutive scoreless appearances. “His progression and his rise through the bullpen’s been pretty impressive,” manager Robin Ventura said. ... Seattle returns home to face Minnesota in the opener of a four-game series Monday night. Mariners RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (6-4, 3.33 ERA) and RHP Kevin Correia (4-10, 4.95) are slated to pitch the first game. ... The White Sox begin a four-game set at Boston on Monday night. RHP Scott Carroll (2-5, 5.05 ERA) takes on Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz (3-4, 6.22) in the series opener.

  • Abreu, Ramirez both deserving of star status Jul 6, 2014 7:27 PM
    Unless you’ve been marooned on an island for the last three months, you’ve heard about White Sox rookie Jose Abreu. And unless you’ve just returned from a walkabout in the Australian Outback, you know that Abreu has played the first half like an all star.
