Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt Football Jerseys finalizing deal with White Sox

The White Sox are finalizing a deal with Cuban free-agent outfielder Luis Robert, according to an industry source. The club has not confirmed the information.

The deal is expected to be worth more than $25 million, and likely in the $26-27 million range, according to the source, and it will be the Jaelen Strong Jersey highest bonus for an international amateur under the current signing guidelines. Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada set the record when he signed for $31.5 million with the Red Sox in 2015.

Robert, 19, is considered the second-best international prospect behind Japanese dual phenom Shohei Ohtani. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound outfielder is a five-tool player who scouts believe can reach the big leagues quickly. Robert was ranked the No. 1 prospect on MLB Pipeline’s Top 30 International Prospects list, which ranks the top players available during each signing period.

Robert, who was declared a free agent by Major League Baseball last month, hit .393 with 12 home runs and 11 stolen bases in Cuba’s Serie Nacional, the island’s top league, last season. The right-handed hitter Jadeveon Clowney Jersey, who profiles as a center fielder with plus power and speed, was described by one American League international scouting director as “the best player on the planet.”

The young and talented Robert appears to be the perfect type of player for a rebuilding team that doesn’t expect to contend until 2019. Chicago signed first baseman Jose Abreu out of Cuba in 2013 and traded for Moncada in Lamar Miller Jersey December, Derek Newton Jersey a reputation as one of the most aggressive teams on the international market.

What’s more, Chicago has not been linked to any high-profile prospects for the next international signing period that starts July 2, which bodes well because the club will enter the maximum penalty and cannot sign players for more than $300,000 after blowing past their current pool J.J. Watt Jersey amount by signing Robert.

Houston Texans Braxton Miller Jersey Avisail Garcia hits two home runs

SEATTLE — Avisail Garcia continued his red-hot start to the season with two home runs and a career-best four hits Lamar Miller Jersey and six RBIs on Saturday as the White Sox rolled to a 16-1 victory over the Mariners at Safeco Field.

Garcia also doubled twice in his 4-for-5 night as the 25-year-old right fielder moved into the American League batting lead with a .357 average. The White Sox racked up their most runs and hits (19) of the season in the one-sided affair and improved to 19-22 with their second straight win.

Full Game Coverage

“He’s been having really good at-bats, he’s driving the ball,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said of Garcia. “That was a pretty good poke to center, right-center field. Just in general it opened up the game for us in the first inning a little bit with that homer. That’s kind of been Avi all year long, pretty consistent.”

Veteran right-hander Yovani Gallardo surrendered 10 runs (nine earned) on nine hits in 3 2/3 innings for Seattle and gave up both of Garcia’s long balls as he fell to 2-4 with a 5.84 ERA. Dillon Overton threw a pair of scoreless innings in relief before allowing five more runs on six hits in the seventh, including home runs by Matt Davidson and Willy Garcia.

“Not our night,” said Mariners manager Scott Servais. “Not a good start at all. Fortunately, it only counts for one loss. But from the get-go, as sharp as Gallardo was his last outing, he really couldn’t get any rhythm.”

The Mariners dropped into last place in the American League West at 20-24 and will see their string of five straight victorious home series snapped as they’ve lost two of three to the White Sox heading into Brian Cushing Jersey Sunday’s finale.

Mike Pelfrey picked up his first win of the season — and the first win by a White Sox starter since May 4 — with six innings of one-run ball. Pelfrey (1-4, 4.85 ERA) allowed just four hits with no walks and three strikeouts. More >>

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
High flyin’: Avisail Garcia’s three-run homer in the first capped a four-run frame off Gallardo that wasn’t helped any when Alfred Blue Jersey second baseman Mike Freeman booted a grounder by Melky Cabrera to cost Seattle a possible double play. Instead, the White Sox had runners on first and second and Jose Abreu drove in the first run with a double to left. Avisail Garcia then cleared the bases with his high arching fly to left field, which carried just over the fence at a projected distance of 355 feet, per Statcast™. Avisail Garcia added his second homer with a solo shot in the third.

“The most frustrating thing is I never gave the guys a chance to come back and battle,” Gallardo said. “It was just one of those days it seemed like everything put in play was getting through and when I did make a mistake, it went over the J.J.Watt Jersey.”

Melk-man delivers: Cabrera capped the White Sox’s five-run fourth with a two-run, bases-loaded single to left as the visitors knocked Gallardo out of the game. The 32-year-old left fielder also chipped in defensively with a nice diving catch in the bottom of the fourth to rob Ben Gamel of a hit.

QUOTABLE
“He’s having a great year. One of the more impressive guys we’ve seen all year. He’s on everything. Very aggressive player, he plays hard. Even though they haven’t scored a lot of runs coming in, they have a decent offensive team and when they get momentum going – on any team — it’s tough to stop,” — Servais on Avisail Garcia

“I felt very good today; I felt more aggressive at home plate. More confident, too. Every at-bat or every game, I gain more confidence of myself. I think Derek Newton Jersey that’s why I’m better every day,” — Avisail Garcia, on his improvement as a hitter

SOUND SMART WITH YOUR FRIENDS
Gallardo had a 1.06 ERA in three prior career starts against the White Sox with just two earned runs in 17 innings, but that number climbed to 4.79 after Saturday’s outing.

Avisaíl García became the third White Sox player to have four extra-base hits and six RBIs in a game, joining Robin Ventura (1991) and Pat Seerey (1948).

The 16 runs was the most by the White Sox since they put up 16 at Texas on April 20, 2014.

UTILITY MAN INDEED
Freeman became the sixth Mariners position player to pitch in a game (catcher Jesus Sucre did it twice) when he threw the ninth inning, allowing one run on three hits while unveiling a 75-mph fastball and several curves in the Jaelen Strong Jersey 60-65 mph range . The last Mariners position player used on the mound was infielder Luis Sardinas, who threw a 1-2-3 inning last July 29 against the Cubs in a 12-1 loss. More >>

WHAT’S NEXT
White Sox: Lefty Derek Holland is having a resurgent start of the season after signing with Chicago on an incentive-laden one-year deal. Holland is 3-3 with a 2.70 ERA, after he posted two straight seasons in Texas with an ERA over 4.00. He’ll face the Mariners today at 3:10 p.m. CT.

Mariners: Right-hander Chris Heston will be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to start Sunday’s 1:10 p.m. PT series finale with the White Sox. Heston, who threw a no-hitter and won 12 games for the Giants in 2015, is 2-1 with a 3.41 ERA in six starts for Tacoma

 

Phillies’ Jadeveon Clowney Jersey Cheap stays hot for Reading J.J. Watt Shirts

Scott Kingery has found his power stroke.

The Phillies’ No. 11 prospect hit a pair of Jadeveon Clowney Jersey solo homers, in the seventh and ninth innings, as part of a 4-for-5 day, but it was not enough for Double-A Reading as the Fightin Phils fell 8-7 to New Hampshire.

The homers are part of a recent power surge in what has already been a bit of a breakthrough season for the 2015 second-round pick, who now leads the Eastern League with 13 homers.

“Everyone keeps asking me if I’m a home run hitter and I keep telling them no,” Kingery told MiLB.com. “I’m honestly just trying to put a good, line-drive swing on the ball, and for some reason I’m hitting them in the air and they’re getting some carry on them. For me, it’s not about hitting home runs, but they just happen to be going out right now.”

Kingery has gone deep four times over his past three games — including a two-homer game on Friday — and Jaelen Strong Jersey six times over his past seven games.

While those numbers would be impressive for anyone, they are even more remarkable when put in context with the rest of his career: Kingery began the season with just eight homers in 197 games.

Other top prospect performances from Sunday’s action:

No. 39 overall prospect Reynaldo Lopez (White Sox No. 4) was stuck with a no-decision despite another strong start for Triple-A Charlotte. Lopez gave up one run on three hits in six innings, throwing 53 of his 85 pitches for strikes. The 23-year-old righty has a 2.94 ERA through 49 innings and has surrendered one earned run or fewer in four of his past five starts.

No. 100 overall prospect Luis Urias (Padres’ No. 4) extended his hitting streak to eight games with JJ Watt Jersey a 3-for-5 effort for Double-A San Antonio. Urias, just 19 years old, has hits in 13 of his past 14 games and is slashing .344/.429/.485 through 41 games.

• Bryan Reynolds (Giants’ No. 3) set a career high with five hits, going 5-for-6 with four RBIs for Class A Advanced San Jose. Reynolds’ three-run triple highlighted a five-run fourth in a game in which practically Alfred Blue Jersey everything went right for the former second-round pick.

• Pirates No. 4 prospect Ke’Bryan Hayes put together his third consecutive multi-hit game in Class A Advanced Bradenton’s win over Fort Myers. Hayes, who has hits in six of the past seven games, finished 3-for-5 with four RBIs.

• Cubs prospects Mark Zagunis (No. 6) and DeAndre Hopkins Jersey Victor Caratini (No. 12) combined for five hits, two homers and four RBIs, but it wasn’t enough as Triple-A Iowa fell to Tacoma, 8-7. Zagunis collected a season-high three hits, going 3-for-5 with a homer, two doubles and an RBI. Caratini, who finished 2-4 with a homer and three RBIs, continues to hit well. The 23-year-old has back-to-back multi-hit games and is batting .458 (11-for-24) over his past six games.

• Kyle Funkhouser (Tigers’ No. 6) may have faced stiffer competition, but he found a way to dominate anyway. The 23-year-old set a career high with 10 strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in his Class A Advanced Lakeland debut. Funkhouser, who had a 3.16 ERA through Brian Cushing Jersey seven starts at the Class A level this season, gave up two runs on three hits without walking a batter.

• Steven Brault (Pirates’ No. 8) tossed seven scoreless innings, a season high, for Triple-A Indianapolis in a 3-2 win over Toledo. The lefty threw 65 of his 98 pitches for strikes, struck out four and gave up just a trio of hits.

“I was just attacking hitters — staying athletic, not overthinking things,” Brault told MiLB.com. “Toledo is more of a strength team; they’re a little more aggressive. The Braxton Miller Jersey was a lot of decent or weak contact and then I kept my defenders engaged, not taking too much time in between pitches. I think that always helps.”

Angels No. 11 prospect David Fletcher set season highs in both hits and RBIs, going 4-for-4 with a trio of of runs driven in for Double-A Mobile. The shortstop plated two with a single in the first and another with a base hit in the fourth.

• Matt Olson (Athletics’ No. 15) bumped his hitting streak to six games with a perfect 4-for-4, three-RBI day at the plate for Triple-A Nashville. Olson also hit his 10th homer of the season, a solo blast in the eighth, as the Sounds beat Sacramento, 4-0.

• Yankees No. 19 prospect Nick Solak hit his second homer of the season and reached base five times for Class A Advanced Tampa. Solak, 22, notched his third three-hit game of the season, going 3-for-4 with two walks, a homer and two RBIs.

Brewers No. 20 prospect Corbin Burnes lowered his ERA to 1.00 through 54 innings for Class A Carolina after shutting out Winston-Salem over seven innings. Burnes, who struck out a career-high 10, has held opponents scoreless in five of his nine starts C.J.Fiedorowicz Jersey this season, including three of his past four.

• Monte Harrison (Brewers’ No. 22) matched his season high in both hits and RBIs as he went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBIs for Class A Wisconsin. Harrison, 21, has seven homers and 20 RBIs through 38 games this season.

Phillies No. 24 prospect Ben Lively threw a gem for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The 25-year-old posted his first scoreless start of the season as he threw six strong innings against Syracuse. Lively lowered his ERA to 2.79 and struck out nine, the most he’s fanned in a game this season.

Leury Garcia back in White Sox lineup Braxton Miller Texans Football Jersey

SEATTLE — Center fielder Leury Garcia was back in the White Sox lineup and batting leadoff Sunday, two days after Braxton Miller Jersey getting hit on the elbow by a pitch from the Mariners’ Sam Gaviglio.

He had been day to day in the meantime, expressing confidence that he could probably return if needed, but the White Sox brought him back with caution, using him as a late-game substitution. A batting-practice session Friday was probably the final indication that he was ready.

Full Game Coverage

“During BP yesterday, he was sharing with us that he thought he DeAndre Hopkins Jersey was back to 100 percent,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said before Sunday’s series finale. “A little sore. Just giving him the day yesterday was good enough to alleviate a little more, and obviously, we have him back in there today.”

Garcia C.J.Fiedorowicz Jersey was hitting .298 when the sore elbow kept him out of the starting lineup. Bringing him back meant rookie Willy Garcia returned to the bench after two days of subbing in for his surname-sharing teammate.

It was an eventful two days for Willy Garcia, who went 2-for-6 in his two starts, including a three-run blast Saturday in a 16-1 victory over the Mariners — his first Major League homer.

“I think he’s been looking and feeling pretty confident since he got Alfred Blue Jersey here,” Renteria said. “Obviously, that was his first homer as a big leaguer, so that’s pretty exciting for everybody. But I think he is feeling and looking very comfortable at the plate and in the field.”

Garcia even got a taste of a newish MLB ritual — the silent treatment after returning to the dugout after his milestone homer.

“I think that’s something that’s kind of evolved over the years,” Renteria said. “But he gets it. He appreciates the guys.”

Garcia entered Sunday hitting .242 (8-for-33) in 12 games since joining the big league club April 14.

Blue Jays Ryan Goins Jerseys score 5 runs in 1st inning

SEATTLE — Chicago White Sox manager Rick Renteria was quick to pour water on the idea that there might be a pattern of his team putting up bunches of runs in the first inning. Coincidence? Maybe. But as long as it leads to wins, he’ll take it.

The White Sox scored five first-inning runs to defeat the Seattle Mariners, 8-1, on Sunday to win their third straight game Ryan Goins Jersey. That rally in the first inning marked the team’s biggest output in the opening frame this season.

Full Game Coverage

That came after Saturday’s 16-1 victory Marcus Stroman Jersey, which began with the White Sox scoring four runs in the first inning — which at the time had been their biggest first inning of the season.

Prior to this series, the White Sox hadn’t scored more than three runs in the first inning this season. Now they’ve bettered that twice in two days.

On Sunday, Mariners starter Chris Heston walked three of the first five Chicago hitters before the White Sox started chipping away for real. Yolmer Sanchez followed with a two-run single and Tim Anderson, Matt Davidson and Kevan Smith added RBI singles, all with two outs.

The singles by Anderson and Smith never even left the infield.

“I think that we just had some really good at-bats early,” Renteria said. “We took advantage of maybe some wildness. Russell Martin Jersey We were able to continue to have that running through. You need to have a knock here and there to kind of keep the runs coming across. Fortunately for us today and yesterday, it’s been going well.”

Already, that was a big difference from Saturday’s first-inning show, when Jose Abreu started with an RBI double and Avisail Garcia followed with a three-run homer.

Sunday was more like a death of 1,000 cuts. But as with Saturday, it began with a walk — several, in Sunday’s case — and Renteria will take that every time.

“I think they got in a situation early in the game [with a pitcher] who wasn’t commanding the zone,” he said. “And then, when they were swinging, they were getting balls they could put in play.”

On Saturday, White Sox starter Mike Pelfrey said the big lead at the start helped him attack the Mariners’ lineup. But a day later, a big lead was the last thing Derek Holland wanted to think about.

“To be honest, you’ve got to keep yourself focused,” Holland said. “Even though we put up five, I’ve got to treat it like it’s 0-0. My job is to make sure to shut the momentum down. We had that momentum; I don’t want to do anything to let them back into it. I was taking care of business with that and keeping the momentum on our side.Kevin Pillar Jersey

Just don’t count on these sorts of things, as Renteria pointed out.

“We’ll continue to have to scrap and push,” he said. “This isn’t an everyday occurrence, obviously. It happened back to back, but it’s not an everyday occurrence and we still have to play the game.”

Blue Jays Russell Martin Jersey rolls into clash with White Sox

When the Chicago White Sox come to Arizona’s Chase Field on Monday, they’ll face D-backs ace Zack Greinke when he’s at the top of his game. He’ll be facing White Sox right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who is going in the opposite direction, having lost his last four starts. He’s 0-3 with a 6.23 ERA this month.

Greinke (5-2) has won four of his last Kevin Pillar Jersey five starts with a 2.94 ERA over 33 2/3 innings in that span. He’s also struck out 46 against five walks — and also given up seven homers — in that streak.

Full Game Coverage

Gonzalez (3-4) has also had Russell Martin Jersey an issue with control of late, issuing nine walks over his last two starts. He got his only career start against the D-backs on Aug. 13, 2013, a no-decision as a member of the Baltimore Orioles. The D-backs won, 4-3, in extra innings, after Gonzalez allowed two runs over seven innings.

“You don’t want to lay the ball in — the Arizona Diamondbacks are swinging the bat really well,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “We have to make pitches, we have to execute. Marcus Stroman Jersey We have to play really clean baseball, that’s the bottom line.”

Ryan Goins Jersey Things to know about this game

• White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia was raking going into Saturday’s game against the Mariners — hitting .361 (13-for-36) over his previous nine games. But he absolutely crushed the ball Saturday, going 4-for-5 with two homers, and became the third White Sox player to have four extra-base hits and six RBIs in a game.

• D-backs third baseman Jake Lamb also has been torrid of late. He snapped an eight-game hitting streak on Sunday. He hit .469 (15-for-32) in that span, but he faces a different trend Monday, as he has hit .200 against American League teams this season. Something’s got to give.

• White Sox center fielder Leury Garcia came back into the starting lineup Sunday after sitting two games with a sore elbow, and his return came at the right time. He’s one of the Custom Blue Jays Jersey team’s top hitters in Monday games, hitting .500 (6-for-12) in contests at the start of the week.

Derek Holland helps Josh Donaldson jersey White Sox beat Mariners

SEATTLE — Tim Anderson provided the offensive punch and Derek Holland threw eight innings of one-run ball Sunday as the White Sox rolled to an 8-1 victory over the Mariners in their second straight runaway win at Safe Josh Donaldson Women’s Jersey Field.

The White Sox won the last three games of the four-game series, including a combined 24-2 margin over the final two days, as they improved to 20-22 on the year. Anderson went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs, while Holland allowed six hits, including Nelson Cruz’s 11th home run of the season in the seventh.

Full Game Coverage

“It’s good to get back on the winning side,” said Anderson, whose White Sox had lost 10 of 14 prior to their current three-game winning streak. “We learned something with our losses and we kept playing through it and we just kept playing through it and having fun with it.”

Chris Heston, called up for his first Major League start since 2015 to help out an injury-ravaged Mariners rotation, lasted just three-plus innings as he yielded seven runs on seven hits and four walks. Seattle (20-25) has lost eight of its last 11 games while being outscored 65-30.

“It was a rough series obviously,” said Mariners manager Scott Servais. “The starting pitching struggled to get us in the flow of the game here the last couple nights.”

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Another fast first: The White Sox jumped to a 4-0 lead in the first inning of Saturday’s 16-1 blowout and did themselves one better Sunday with a five-run opening frame, thanks to some help from the Mariners. Heston walked the bases loaded with two outs before Yolmer Sanchez drove in a pair with a single to Josh Donaldson Youth Jersey right. Anderson then hit a checked-swing roller to the right of the mound that rookie first baseman Daniel Vogelbach didn’t field as he instead went to the bag, allowing Anderson to reach on a run-scoring infield single. Matt Davidson and Kevan Smith followed with RBI singles, including another infield dribbler by Smith, to make it 5-0 before the Mariners came to bat. More >

Pitcher’s best friend: Holland benefited handsomely from four double plays turned behind him in the first six innings, the biggest coming when he induced a 6-4-3 twin killing from Mariners catcher Tuffy Gosewisch after Seattle had runners on the corners with one out in the fifth. He also got Guillermo Heredia to hit into two double plays, including a hard-hit line drive to third baseman Todd Frazier in the sixth when Jarrod Dyson was running from first on the pitch.

“You keep your defense on your toes and they’re going to make those plays,”Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey Holland said. “It takes — I like to say seven guys because the catcher and I don’t count. So it’s seven guys to win a game. Those guys are making the plays and doing everything we need to keep us on the field and be successful. Actually, it might be six guys. I forgot about the DH.”

QUOTABLE
“We’ll be OK. I know it’s hard for the guys in the Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey house right now to see that. We will eventually get healthy. We just have to continue fighting, clawing. It’s adverse times. We knew it was coming, now we have to deal with it.” — Servais, as his team works through a stretch with five starters on the disabled list

WHAT’S NEXT
White Sox: The White Sox continue their current road trip, opening a three-game series against the D-backs at Arizona’s Chase Field on Monday at 3:05 p.m. CT. Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez has had a season of swings, losing his last four starts after winning his first three decisions of 2017. He will be making his first start against Arizona since 2013.

Mariners: After an off-day Monday, the Mariners open a three-game series against the Nationals in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday at 4:05 p.m. PT with right-hander Christian Bergman making his third start. The 29-year-old threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings with just two hits in a 4-0 win over the A’s in his last outing.

White Sox Tommy Kahnle in his Josh Donaldson Jersey own words

If you talk to a lot of players, they’ll say sometimes it only takes one thing to get you going in this game. You make the adjustment and then, boom, there it is. That happened to me this year.

Everyone always has told me I have a lot of stuff. I had the velo, but I just didn’t have the consistency. This past year, I worked on my leg kick and timing to get the ball down, and I had some good results. But I didn’t have it this spring. My command was spotty from outing to outing.

I kind of readjusted toward the Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey of camp, but it still wasn’t fully there. Then we had a simulated game in Charlotte, N.C., right before we came to Chicago to start the season. For some reason, I decided to keep my head more in line during my delivery. I also focused more on the catcher’s glove than the catcher himself.

Normally, I would try to feel where to throw the ball, and my head would start tilting. Coaches said it was one of the reasons why my fastball was so inconsistent. To be honest, I really didn’t understand what that all meant.

That day in Charlotte, it really clicked. When I started to hit my spots, I thought, “Where did that come from? Now, I understand what they were saying.”

Now if I fall off a little bit, I know that it doesn’t feel right. I’ve been able to adjust a lot more quickly. It feels good to be able to consistently throw strikes and get ahead of the hitters. This game, though, is not easy. I don’t want to get too overconfident, but I hope it keeps going this way.

I grew up near Albany, N.Y. After my junior year, my Dad and I went to Florida to attend some summer showcase camps for college coaches. I was starting to throw harder, and I was getting some looks from colleges. Back then, the long-term goal was to get drafted, but I was realistic — I just wanted to play somewhere.

Josh Donaldson Jersey Florida Atlantic was interested, but there was a miscommunication with one of the deadlines, and I wasn’t able to enroll. Eventually, I didn’t have many options. I remembered Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., liked me and sent an email. One of the coaches got back to me within Josh Donaldson Youth Jersey an hour and said, “Yeah, we’d love to have you.” It worked out well, as the Yankees drafted me in the fifth round in 2010.

How many players from Lynn have made it to the big leagues? You’re looking at him.

Away from baseball, I’m a huge Philadelphia Eagles and Notre Dame fan. When I was a kid, I liked the Eagles’ color green and the bird logo on the helmet. Sometimes, that’s all it takes. I’m looking forward to having former Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery on the team this year. I’ll have his jersey soon.

It’s been fun being in Chicago, because Notre Dame and the Big Ten are so big here. Derek Holland and Zach Putnam are Michigan guys. I’m sure there will be some trash talk between us when the football season starts.

I’m also into pro wrestling. I went to a lot of shows when I was a kid–and comic books. When people ask what character I would be if I was in a comic book, I say Captain America. I like what he represents.

But in real life, I would settle for Josh Donaldson Women’s Jersey being a successful Major League pitcher. I know I still have a lot of work to do.

As told to Ed Sherman.

Custom Indians Jersey Mike Trout homers as Angels sweep White Sox

ANAHEIM — Mike Trout did it again.

“That was unbelievable,” Angels starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker said. “That’s why he’s so fun to watch.”

Shoemaker (3-2) allowed four runs in the first two frames, including a two-run homer by Jose Abreu in the first, but nothing after that as he went 6 1/3 innings and struck out a season-high nine.

“Really, no big adjustments,” Shoemaker said. “Just staying aggressive, attacking the zone. You’ve just got to go out there and keep pitching, keep trying to get outs and put up zeros, and then your team picks you up, which is great.”

Said Angels manager Mike Scioscia: “He had to earn every out. He made some pitches when he had to, got some big strikeouts when he had to. That lineup over there, they’ve got some guys that are swinging the bat as well as anyone in the league. He got into the seventh inning, which is a good sign.”

Maldonado picked up his third RBI of the game with a single in the seventh in yet another four-run outburst for the Angels, who held off a late charge by the White Sox to climb above .500 for the first time since May 3.

“The character of this club is unbelievable,” Shoemaker said. “Great clubhouse,

I’ll take a Martin. Actually, make it three: Maldonado came through at the plate for the Angels, notching a season-high three RBIs. His second RBI — a dribbler down the third-base line — plated Ben Revere with the go-ahead run.

SWARZAK’S RUN ENDS
Swarzak’s run of excellence, bordering on mind-boggling, came to a temporary end in the sixth inning when the right-hander allowed three runs on three hits. Entering the night, Swarzak had allowed two hits and one walk in his last 50 batters faced and had a scoreless streak of 19 2/3 innings come to an end. He was the only pitcher remaining the Majors to work 19-plus innings without allowing a run in 2017.

QUOTABLE
“He got a little tight on the ball he hit to the wall in right-center [in the fifth inning]. Running, he felt OK. In the [sixth], he was a little tight so we took him out as a precaution. Right now, it’s day to day.” — Scioscia, on pinch-running for Pujols after he walked in the sixth inning

“We’ve lost 14 of the last 15 here? I wasn’t aware of that. OK. I don’t know. I’ll have to think about that a little.” — White Sox manager Rick Renteria, on Chicago’s struggles in Anaheim

Full Game Coverage

“It’s always hard to swallow. It was a tough one out there,” Swarzak said. “I faced three guys and gave up three hits. That’s never good, I don’t care what kind of
Personalized Colorado Rockies Jersey year you’re having, what streak is going on. If you’re giving up three consecutive hits to three consecutive batters, that’s
Men’s Authentic Customized Colorado Rockies Alternate Navy Blue Baseball Jersey an issue.”

Swarzak relieved Miguel Gonzalez in the sixth inning with two outs, Danny Espinosa on second and the game tied at 4. Martin Maldonado singled to left to
Men’s Los Angeles Dodgers Authentic Personalized Royal Blue MLB BP Jersey Cheap break the tie, followed by Cameron Maybin’s check swing single up the third-base line to put two on base.

Maybin’s roller stayed on the grass to stay fair and wasn’t exactly well struck.
Personalized Los Angeles Dodgers Jersey Mike Trout, who was up next, didn’t miss on his opportunity.

Trout launched an 0-1 slider for the reigning American League Most Valuable Player’s fifth home run in his last six games, giving the Angels an 8-4 advantage. That no-doubt-about-it blast to left-center ended Swarzak’s scoreless streak at 19 2/3 innings and was Trout’s first hit in seven career at-bats against the righty.

“Baseball is a funny game sometimes,” Swarzak said. “The guy’s never touched first base with me pitching. He ends up being the guy I give up the homer.”

Prior to Wednesday’s outing, Swarzak had allowed two hits and one walk over his last 50 batters faced, with 22 strikeouts and two walks. A slight rise in his fastball velocity and a couple of different variations of his slider were keys to
Youth Authentic Los Angeles Dodgers Customized Home White Baseball Jersey Cheap Swarzak’s almost unreal dominance. He was the only Major League pitcher to work 19-plus innings without allowing a run this season, and his streak left him just short of Dustin Hermanson’s franchise record of 21 scoreless innings to start a season.

White Sox starting pitchers have a 0-8 mark with a 6.36 ERA and .294 opponents average against over the last 11 games, so bigger issues exist for the team during this 2-9 funk that has them four games under .500. But Swarzak couldn’t get the job done Wednesday in a venue where the White Sox have lost 14 of their last 15 games.

“Through that stretch, I got away with some bad pitches. Nobody’s perfect,”
Website Swarzak said. “You try to minimize your misses. I’ve missed this year. I just got away with it.

“Tonight I didn’t get away with it. It was kind of the perfect storm. The first guy hits an OK slider to left field and Gonzo’s run comes across and scores. Maybin with kind of a check swing, kind of dribbler down the third-base line. That kind of hit I’ve been avoiding this year, for whatever reason. It’s just been going my way.

“There’s nothing you can do to stop that type of stuff. Today I just didn’t get the next guy. That’s what you’ve got to do. You give up those little 45-foot singles in the infield, you’ve got to get the next guy.”
