Today’s News

Tonight’s Game

White Sox vs. A’s at Oakland Coliseum, Oakland (9:05 p.m. CT, CSN/ESPN). Starting Pitchers: Carlos Rodon for the Sox, Sonny Gray for the A’s.

Last Night’s Highlights

Call them Robin and the Newcomers, call them the New Age White Sox and after last night’s dramatic 5-4 win on the strength of huge contributions from recently acquired Jimmy Rollins, Todd Frazier, Austin Jackson, Brett Lawrie and Alex Avila, call them 2-0…It was Rollins who put the Sox over the top for good with a two-out solo homer in the ninth inning after Oakland tied the score in the bottom of the eighth (click on top link below)…It was Frazier’s two-out, three-run homer in the fifth that gave the Sox a 3-1 lead (click on middle link) and Jackson’s infield single, which scored Lawrie from third base, that put the fourth run on the board in the sixth (click on bottom link). Avila also singled in the inning, moving Lawrie to third…Adam Eaton pounded out three singles and scored a run…Though he didn’t get the win, Jose Quintana tossed 5.2 solid innings, allowing just two runs, seven hits while striking out seven. In the first two games, starters Chris Sale and Q have combined for 15 Ks…Matt Albers threw 1.1 IP of scoreless relief and David Robertson pitched a perfect ninth for his second save in as many nights.

Quote of the Day

Frazier on last night’s win (via @CST_soxvan):

“The whole game, everybody is into it, from the guys on the bench to the guys in the game. We’ve got something special, man. It’s a good team. We’re coming together.

“You see Jimmy ground into a double play, next thing you know, he doesn’t think about nothing, goes up and hits a home run. That’s just the way baseball is. He’s been doing it for a long time, and it’s real fun to see a guy of his caliber still dominating the game.”
