This Afternoon’s Game

White Sox vs. Rangers at Camelback Ranch-Glendale (3:05 p.m. CT, WLS, whitesox.com). Chris Sale is set to make the start while David Robertson, Zach Duke and Nate Jones are scheduled to pitch as well.

Yesterday’s Highlights

The big boppers were at it again for the White Sox (14-12-1) as The Good Guys won an 11-7 slugfest over the Rockies in Scottsdale…The Sox pounded out four more home runs, 16 hits and were led by a Matt Davidson solo homer, a two-run blast and solo shot by Carlos Sanchez and a solo clout by Jose Abreu…Our Cactus League HR total is now at 46, which leads all of baseball, and it’s more than double the 22 we hit last spring…Davidson, Sanchez (4 RBI) and Abreu all had 3 for 4 days and Tyler Saladino collected three hits, including two doubles, and drove in a pair…Davidson now leads the team with five HRs…John Danks tossed six innings for the win and Jones threw a perfect seventh inning.

Enjoy the four homers: Sanchez (2), Davidson and Abreu:

Quote of the Day

GM Rick Hahn on Avi Garcia:

“I’d view him more as a guy who still has, at his age, a world of potential and the ability to convert on that potential. What we’ve seen from him down here in Arizona has all been positive, and solid indications that he’s headed in the right direction.”
