The White Sox scored seven times in the game’s first three innings — fueled by home runs off the bats of Gordon Beckham and Alex Rios — and held on for a 10-7 win over the Angels today in Tempe to improve to 4-3-2 on the spring season. Jake Peavy earned the win for the Sox, while closer Bobby Jenks struggled in his outing. Jared Mitchell, last year’s first round pick by the Sox, injured himself while making a great, over-the-fence catch. He was carted off the field, and I will update you as to his status when we have news.
The other half of the White Sox, with manager Ozzie Guillen, take on the Chicago Cubs in Las Vegas. Tune into WSCR 670 AM or CSN (a Cubs telecast) to hear/see the game (9:05 p,m. CT).
A great mix of musicians, baseball players, friends, family and fans took part in Woodjock 2010 last night at The Venue in Scottsdale. Not only can Jake Peavy pitch. The guy can sing and play the guitar, too. Teammates Scott Linebrink and Gordon Beckham joined the lineup of talent.
“At least I didn’t forget any of the words,” Beckham said.
