Sox/Contreras Win, Split DH
Jose Contreras allowed one hit over 8.0 IP as the Sox won the nightcap from Detroit, 6-1, splitting Monday’s doubleheader.
Postgame comments from White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen:
“I think it was exciting for everyone, especially the guys, his teammates. We were happy for him because he threw the ball the way we know he can throw the ball.
“He turned a really bad day into a nice day. He did a tremendous job for us, saved our bullpen and won the game.
“He had the best split he’s thrown in a long time. He threw it for strikes when he wanted to.”
