Today’s News

This Afternoon’s Game

White Sox vs. Tigers at Comerica Park, Detroit (12:08 p.m. CT, WGN) in the opener of a four-game series. Probable Starters: LHP Carlos Rodon (3-1, 3.75) for the Sox, RHP Alfredo Simon (7-4, 3.29) for Detroit.

Rodon makes his 12th major-league appearance and ninth start–six of which have been quality. He earned his third win in his last outing on June 20 vs. the Rangers, allowing just two runs on four hits over six innings.

Carlos has allowed one or no earned runs over six-plus innings in four straight starts, becoming the first White Sox rookie to accomplish that feat since Bruce Howard went five in a row in 1964-65.

Yesterday’s Highlights

Adam LaRoche blasted his ninth homer, a solo shot (click on link below) and collected a pair of doubles while Chris Sale struck out 10 in 6.2 innings as the Sox dropped the rubber match of the series to the Twins, 6-1. Sale is now just the fourth pitcher in the modern era (since 1900) to strike out 10 or more in seven straight starts.

2005 Flashback

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Sox’ championship season…

In Game 72 on June 24 at home against the Cubs, the White Sox bats and a fine pitching performance by Freddy Garcia gave the first-place Sox their eighth straight victory and 50th win of the season in a 12-2 triumph. Joe Crede belted a three-run homer (No. 10), A.J. Pierzynski had a two-run clout (11) and three RBI, Frank Thomas connected with a solo shot (7) and two runs batted in, Aaron Rowand went 3-5 with an RBI and Scott Podsednik stole his 37th and 38th bases of the season. Garcia (7-3) tossed seven strong innings, allowing a run on three hits with eight strikeouts.
