White Sox retire Josh Donaldson Womens Jersey Mark Buehrle’s No. 56 jersey

CHICAGO — One word Kevin Pillar Jersey pretty much encapsulated Mark Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey Buehrle’s feelings during the retirement ceremony of his jersey No. 56 at Guaranteed Rate Field Saturday afternoon, making him the 11th White Sox player to receive such an honor.Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 20 Josh Donaldson Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Cheap.

“Wow,” was the first word said by Buehrle after three standing ovations, speeches from emcee Ken “Hawk” Harrelson, pitching coach Don Cooper, Hall of Famer and former teammate Frank Thomas and White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. “This is amazing.

“People texted me before we got here saying how crowded it was. Me trying to get here two hours before. It’s usually not that busy. Amazing feeling,” added Buehrle during his media session in the third inning of Saturday’s contest with the A’s. “Can’t really put it into words how you feel. I wasn’t actually as nervous as I thought I would be once I was up there. But obviously glad it’s over with, and it’s a special day.”

Buehrle joined Nellie Fox (2), Harold Baines (3), Luke Appling (4), Minnie Minoso (9), Luis Aparicio (11), Paul Konerko (14), Ted Lyons (16), Billy Pierce (19), Thomas (35) and Carlton Fisk (72) in a ceremony lasting just over 30 minutes. Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 was retired throughout baseball in 1997.Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey.

Modeling a fashion similar to his quick mound work, Buehrle took the podium at about 12:55 p.m. CT, and his speech lasted a little under a tidy five minutes. Buehrle played 12 seasons with the White Sox, compiling a record of 161-119, a 3.83 ERA and was a 16-game winner for the 2005 team that won the franchise’s first World Series since 1917. He started Game 2 of that World Series and saved Game 3.

The White Sox commissioned a piece of 56 artwork, created by one-time slugger Ron Kittle. They also presented Buehrle a four-wheeler for fishing and hunting, a truck with 27 Up, 27 Down on the back in honor of his perfect game thrown on July 23, 2009, against the Rays and a return of the baseball used by Buehrle on his miraculous between-the-legs flip on a play at first base against the Indians on Opening Day 2010.

“As I look around this stadium it’s amazing how much Josh Donaldson Jersey these people love you and how many people came out to see you on this great day,” said Reinsdorf, who had high praise for Buehrle, aside from joking his quick mound work killed the concessions. “In case you weren’t aware of it, we don’t draw 40,000 every day.”

In Buehrle’s speech, he thanked his wife, Jamie, his children, Braden and Brooklyn, and his parents, John and Pat. He thanked all his friends and family members in attendance, former teammates who were there and the organization from Reinsdorf to coaches to everyone else in the ballpark who helped him and his family. He also praised the fans, who responded with rousing cheers as they have pretty much every step of Buehrle’s career.

Nine-year-old Braden completed the ceremony with an inspiring rendition of the national anthem. Eight-year-old Brooklyn threw out the first pitch to her dad, with the scoreboard flashing the message: “Brooklyn Buehrle 85 mph, Mark Buehrle 77 mph in his prime.” Buehrle pointed out his sweetheart of a daughter didn’t want to throw out the first pitch until a few days ago because she was afraid of throwing harder than her dad.

There were emotional moments Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey for the usually even-keel Buehrle. Nothing topped seeing the actual unveiling between Thomas and Fisk.

“Emotions and trying to breathe deep and don’t start crying, tearing up,” Buehrle said. “I was trying to hold my emotions together. But just looking up there and seeing that. I can’t put it into words.

“Again, it doesn’t make sense. Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale It’s going to take time. I don’t know if it’s ever going to sink in and realize there it is.”

Three rookies lead Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale Oakland past White Sox

CHICAGO — Matt Olson, Jaycob Brugman and Franklin Barreto each slugged their first career big league homers Saturday as the Oakland Athletics took a 10-2 win over the Chicago White Sox in front of a sellout crowd on the day of Mark Buehrle’s jersey retirement at Guaranteed Rate Field.Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 20 Josh Donaldson Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Cheap.

Olson, Brugman and Barreto Kevin Pillar Jersey each went deep off White Sox starter James Shields, who was making his second start since coming off the disabled list with a strained right lat. Olson, the second batter of the game, took the first pitch he saw in the first inning a Statcast-projected 423 feet to right field for the first of his two homers Josh Donaldson Womens Jersey on the day. Brugman knocked a shot just over the wall in right in the second inning and Barreto launched a two-run blast to center in the third. Barreto’s homer was also his first career hit, with Saturday being his Major League debut.

“A peek to the future is now, right? I guess that’s a record, those three home runs,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “It’s amazing. These guys have fed off each other all through the system, they know each other really well and have won together. The more the merrier at this point.”

Fans played rock, paper, scissors for foul ball

It marked the second time ever three teammates had launched their first Major League home runs in the same game, according to Elias Sports. It was last accomplished in professional baseball history by the Kansas City Packers of the Federal League in 1914 when Art Kruger, John Potts and Duke Kenworthy accomplished the feat. The Federal League played as a third major league during the 1914 and ’15 season.Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey.

Saturday was also the first time all season Shields had given up multiple homers in a start after allowing a Major League-worst 40 home runs last season. Shields went three-plus innings, allowing six runs on seven hits while walking three on 85 pitches. It marked the first time in five starts he didn’t go at least five innings, putting a damper on the game in which he recorded his 2,000th career strikeout.

Oakland right-hander Daniel Gossett benefitted from the early offense to cruise to his first career win, tossing six innings and allowing just a pair of unearned runs on 93 pitches. His defense didn’t help him, as the Athletics extended their Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey Major League lead with three errors — two of which directly led to runs. Despite the lack of defensive support, the Oakland offense did more than enough to boost the rookie.

“The whole ordeal is a special experience for everyone,” Gossett said. “To get out of there with my first win was just the icing on the cake. It was an awesome experience to be a part of.”

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Just a bit outside: Shields was in trouble from the get-go, in part because of how he lost the first batter he faced. The right-hander had leadoff man Matt Joyce on a 2-2 count, but proceeded to spike a breaking ball in the dirt and miss just outside to walk Joyce. His very next pitch, an 85.5-mph cutter, was driven out of the ballpark by Olson to open up the scoring in what would be a 29-pitch first inning for Shields.

You gone: Athletics shortstop Adam Rosales led off the top of the seventh inning with a chopper to third base, which was fielded by Todd Frazier before he threw it to Jose Abreu at first base. The umpires initially ruled Rosales safe at first and gave Frazier an error, saying Abreu was off the bag. The White Sox challenged the ruling, but it was upheld. After the challenge, Frazier got into a heated discussion with third-base umpire Jim Wolf and was promptly ejected. Manager Rick Renteria was then ejected for the second consecutive game and third consecutive home game for arguing with Wolf, and at one point threw his hat on the ground in protest. It was Frazier’s first career ejection, and Renteria’s 10th. Renteria now has four ejections this season, tying him with Marlins skipper Don Mattingly among managers Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale for the Major League lead.

Rosales safe at first OAK@CWS: Rosales called safe at firstAdam Rosales is originally called safe on the call at first and the White Sox challenge, but the call stands after the review

“It’s frustrating,” Frazier said. “You can’t get the call right in New York, too, as well. They’ve got every different angle. They can zoom in. They can zoom in as close as possible and to think that they cannot make that call it’s just frustrating with the technology we have today. It’s just crazy. It boggles your mind. It really does. You know. I’m the one. I’m vocal. I’m emotional.”

Renteria said he grew frustrated and said Frazier — like Tim Anderson, who got tossed Friday — was too mild-mannered of a guy to have such a short leash with umpires and said he was “pissed” to lose a key member of his lineup.

“Frazier’s never been tossed,” Renteria said. “Timmy Anderson is the most mild-mannered person you’ve ever met in your life. Yet he’s a competitor. So when you see these guys express themselves in a certain way, consider who they are, what they’re about.”Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Majestic White Flex Base 40th Anniversary Patch Jersey.

AFTER FURTHER REVIEW
Shortly after Frazier’s error was upheld, another White Sox error was added to the board through a replay review. Athletics third baseman Ryon Healy hit a grounder to short, which Anderson bobbled before throwing to Abreu at first. The Athletics challenged the initial ruling that Healy was out and the call was overturned following a minute-long review. Anderson was charged with an error.

WHAT’S NEXT
A’s: Right-hander Sonny Gray, who is winless with a 6.43 ERA over his last five starts, will look to turn things around against the White Sox in Sunday’s 11:10 a.m. PT series finale at Guaranteed Rate Field.

White Sox: Derek Holland will take the mound looking to turn things around in what has been a rough June. He picked up the quality start in his last home start, but still has a 12.64 ERA this month. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. CT.

Adam Engel of White Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey Sox hits 1st career homer

CHICAGO — The White Sox jersey No. 41 worn by Adam Engel for his Major League debut on May 27 against the Tigers was presented to his dad recently Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale as a Father’s Day gift.

And the baseball Engel connected on for his first career home run during a 5-3 loss to the A’s on Sunday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field also will have a
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 20 Josh Donaldson Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Cheap family feel as part of its final destination.

Full Game Coverage

“Give it to my parents more than likely,” said the 25-year-old Engel, after Oakland completed the three-game sweep of his team and dropped Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey the White Sox to 32-42 overall. “I try to give them all my memorable jerseys or bats or balls or whatever the case may be. They do whatever they want with it.”

Based on Engel’s early Major League results, the No. 17 White Sox prospect per MLBPipeline.com might have more significant memorabilia to come. Engel has expertly handled center field, which was the trait the organization expected from him when he was promoted.

Sunday’s 1-for-3 showing left the right-handed hitter’s average at .308 and his OBP at .341 over 14 games. Engel, who also has four stolen bases to leave him one off Tim Anderson’s team lead, has fine-tuned his offensive approach since arriving with the White Sox.

That change includes dropping his hands a little lower at the plate.

Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey.

“You get to watch a lot of video and kind of see what guys are trying to do to certain players,” Engel said. “You always have to kind of keep in the back of your mind that you are somebody different than what you might be watching on video.

“So, you just try to put that all together and make sure you are prepared before each game. As far as Kevin Pillar Jersey mechanics go, I messed with my hands a little bit here and there height wise. Just try to get them to a closer place to where I swing from. But at the same time it’s pretty similar I would say.”

Sonny Gray yielded Engel’s home run with two outs in the third, the same Sonny Gray who has been the topic of numerous trade rumors with the non-waiver Trade Deadline fast approaching. Engel connected on a 2-1, two-seam fastball, with an exit velocity of 100.2 mph, a launch angle of 33 degrees and a hit probability of 48 percent Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey for the 382-foot drive to left per Statcast™.

As he reached the dugout, White Sox manager Rick Renteria high-fived Engel, but the rest of his teammates gave him an initial silent treatment. The celebration began shortly thereafter, with Engel getting the ball back from the bullpen, who retrieved it from a young fan who ended up with the home run.

To enhance the day, Engel had friends and family in town and at the game.

“It was a pretty cool feeling,” Engel said. “The guys ahead of me worked some deep counts and did some work early for me. I got a fastball up in the zone — I was ahead in the count. I was able to see it, kind of looking for it and put a good swing on it.”

A’s rally behind Sonny Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale Gray to beat White Sox

CHICAGO — A two-run eighth-inning rally, highlighted by Yonder Alonso’s go-ahead RBI single, sparked the A’s to a 5-3 comeback victory, secured a series sweep and handed the White Sox their sixth loss in their last seven games on Sunday at Guaranteed Rate Field.Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey.

Trailing 2-1 in the eighth with White Sox setup man Tommy Kahnle in the game, the A’s finally managed to get a rally going as Franklin Barreto singled and Ryon Healy reached on Matt Davidson’s error. Khris Davis pushed across the tying run on a sharp single to right, followed by Alonso’s lofted fly ball off closer David Robertson that fell in to give Oakland the lead. The ball, which was just out of the reach of White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera, had a hit probability of just two percent according to Statcast™.

Full Game Coverage

“Last Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey couple games, we get on the board early, and whenever you do that you have some momentum, some confidence,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “When you get behind, and we were basically stagnant for a good portion of the game today, not even getting good at-bats, let alone opportunities, then all of a sudden they came and we kept fighting back. From the sixth inning on, the at-bats were completely different.”

It marked the first time this season the White Sox had lost in the 29 games they’ve led after seven innings. White Sox manager Rick Renteria said he didn’t expect Cabrera — who was shifted to pull against the left-handed Alonso — to have much of a chance at the ball off the crack of the bat.

“He was actually playing a little more to the pull side than he was to the line,” Renteria said. “I don’t think he was going to be able to get to it,
Youth Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey  regardless of the effort he might have given us.”

White Sox host Pitch, Hit & Run event

A’s right-hander Sonny Gray matched Derek Holland for much of the afternoon, allowing a pair of runs (one earned) in seven innings of work to keep things close while striking out seven on 101 pitches. Gray’s lone mistake came in the third, as White Sox rookie center fielder Adam Engel uncorked on a 91.6 mph center-cut fastball and shot it into the left field bleachers for his first career homer to make it 1-0. Sean Doolittle and Santiago Casilla combined to hold the lead in the eighth and ninth, giving Gray his third Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey win of the season.

For the A’s, it marked their first road series sweep of the season, as they Kevin Pillar Jersey improved to 12-25 away from the Coliseum.

“It’s no secret we struggle on the road,” Gray said. “We’re aware of it. We really put together three solid games here. We got big hits when we needed to, our starting pitching was really good, and our bullpen was really good. Hopefully that’s something we can continue to do.”

Holland, despite entering Sunday with a 12.64 June ERA, earned his team-leading second quality start this month and kept the A’s bats in check for the first time all series. Holland went six-plus innings, allowing one run on just four hits while striking out six on a season-high 112 pitches. Holland’s start saved a pitching staff that has struggled to provide length and quality from its rotation, with the group having a 5.88 ERA and just six quality starts during its last 31 games entering Sunday. While the White Sox still sit last in the American League with 26 quality starts, Holland was at least able resettle himself after a rough month.

“I think I’ve done a pretty good job of getting those quality starts as much as I can, but I’ve got to go longer,” Holland said. “I should be able to get into the seventh and not have 110 pitches or whatnot. I need to go out there and go longer. It’s all about getting those quality starts.”

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Got a better jump: The White Sox looked to be threatening in the first inning, as second baseman Alen Hanson led off the game with a double to right. Then with Hansen at third with one out and Jose Abreu at bat, Hanson attempted to swipe a run on a wild pitch from Gray. A’s catcher Josh Phegley got the ball to Gray in time for the out. In the fourth inning, the White Sox executed, taking advantage of Phegley’s passed ball as Abreu scored from third to make it 2-0.

“It was huge. That was really big,” Gray said. “One out, a runner on third, you really don’t draw it up like that. But it was huge for me going forward in that game. Any way possible, to not let that run score in the first, and when I saw the pitch kind of get away, I immediately thought, just get to
Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Majestic White Flex Base 40th Anniversary Patch Jersey home and hopefully something will happen, and we kind of just turned a bad play into a good play.”

Insurance: A’s shortstop Adam Rosales appeared to be in position to tie the game in the seventh on Jed Lowrie’s pinch-hit double, but was held up rounding third base. After Oakland took the lead in the eighth, Rosales made sure there was no doubt he was scoring in the ninth with a Statcast-projected 387-foot shot off Robertson in the ninth. Matt Joyce followed with a Statcast-projected 422-foot shot off Chris Beck, giving Oakland back-to-back homers for the fourth time this season and a 5-2 cushion. With an exit velocity of 106.6 mph, Joyce’s homer was tied for his hardest-hit this season and his fourth-hardest hit ball since Statcast™ was introduced in 2015.

QUOTABLE
“It was a pretty cool feeling. I was able to get ahead in the count there and the guys ahead of me worked some deep counts and you know did some work early for me. I got a fastball up in the zone — I was ahead in the count. I was able to see it, kind of looking for it and put a good swing on it. I actually had some friends and family in town so hitting it is just one of those things where you just kind of smile, and you are happy that your friends and family are here to watch it.” — Engel, on his first career homer

Rosales was quick to celebrate his home run, scooting around the bases in 15.88 seconds — beating his own previous mark of 15.90 seconds for the fastest home run trot in the Majors since Statcast™ was Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale introduced.

“What? I didn’t think I was going as fast,” Rosales said. “I’m not thinking about it, I’m just running.” More >

ON THE MEND
Trailing 5-2 with one out in the ninth inning, Beck took a line drive to the back of the his left leg from Davis — a ball with an exit velocity of 101.9 mph, according to Statcast™ — which would go as an infield single. Beck got medical attention from White Sox trainers before departing and being replaced by Gregory Infante due to injury. The White Sox announced Beck is day-to-day with a bruised left hamstring.

WHAT’S NEXT
A’s: Following an off-day Monday, the A’s will be back in action in Houston, with lefty Sean Manaea scheduled to start Tuesday’s 5:10 p.m. PT opener at Minute Maid Park. Manaea took his first loss since May 15 on Wednesday, allowing three runs in six innings against the Astros in a home start.

White Sox: David Holmberg (1-1, 2.84) will take the mound Monday night as the White Sox open a four-game set against the Yankees in the middle of a 10-game homestand.

Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Jersey has difficult rehab start

ST. PETERSBURG — Chicago’s Carlos Rodon had a rough time in his first rehab start Tuesday, but he felt Josh Donaldson Jersey fully healthy. The left-hander allowed five earned runs on four hits in 3 1/3 innings for the White Sox Class A Advanced affiliate, Winston-Salem.

“Arm felt good. I felt strong,” Rodon told reporters in Carolina. “It was good to get back out there and pitch again. It’s been a little while, but it was fun to compete.”

Full Game Coverage

The left-hander, who has not pitched for Chicago in the regular season because of upper-biceps bursitis, struck out the side in the first but quickly unraveled in his first appearance since Spring Training, including giving Kevin Pillar Jersey up a home run. The former first-round pick in the 2014 Draft out of North Carolina State threw 71 pitches — 43 for strikes — and took the 6-3 loss to the Carolina Mudcats.

‘”The goal was to get up to the fifth inning but they hit me around a little bit,” Rodon said. “The goal today was to Troy Tulowitzki Jersey feel healthy, get up and down and work on command.”

Rodon struck out six and walked two while maintaining a fastball velocity in the mid-90s. The White Sox have not given a timetable on when Rodon will return to the Major League club but have said that the pitcher would likely need at least four starts.

In his previous two seasons with Chicago, Rodon went a combined 18-16 with a 3.90 ERA in 54 appearances — 51 starts Joe Carter Jersey — while averaging just over a strikeout per inning.

Troy Tulowitzki Jersey makes first Major League start at home

The Troy Tulowitzki Jersey Tampa Bay Rays called up right-hander Jacob Faria from Triple-A Durham to make his Major League debut against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday.

Righty Mike Pelfrey takes the mound for the White Sox, entering the game having allowed two earned runs over 16 innings in his past three starts.

Jose Bautista Jersey
Full Game Coverage

Pelfrey’s string of strong outings has provided help for a White Sox rotation missing Carlos Rodon and James Shields, who are both close to returning from injuries.

Three things to know about this game

• Faria relies primarily on his fastball and changeup combination, but Kevin Pillar Jersey has added an effective cutter into the mix this year pitching in Triple-A, Josh Donaldson Jersey Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

• The Rays offense strikes out more often that any team in the Majors: They’ve fanned 607 times, or 26.4 percent of plate appearances. That might not be as problematic against Pelfrey, who whiffs only 5.22 per nine innings. That’s the 11th-lowest rate of starters with at least 30 innings pitched, tied with teammate Miguel Gonzalez.

• Pelfrey has held opponents to just a .220 batting average this season, but their expected average based on Statcast hit probabilities is .263. That 43-point gap is the fourth largest for any pitcher with at least 100 opponent Russell Martin Jersey at-bats this season.

Justin Smoak Jersey for sale mindset for game is evolving

CHICAGO — In describing Avisail Garcia’s renaissance in 2017, begin with words such as recognition and Justin Smoak Jersey accountability.

Recognition, as in Garcia quickly realizes when he expands the strike zone and chases nearly unhittable pitches. Accountability, as in the White Sox right fielder becomes the first one to point out the issue.

“Same person, different thought process,” White Sox hitting coach Todd Steverson said. “Saying, ‘I know what I did and I don’t need a 45-minute session in the cage to fix myself.'”

Cast your Esurance All-Star ballot for Garcia and other #ASGWorthy players

“Been missing a couple pitches in the middle of the strike zone and fouled off a couple pitches,” Garcia said. “You’ve got to be ready.”

Garcia’s average sat at .357 after a four-hit, six-RBI performance against the Mariners on May 20, From May 21-29, Garcia dipped into a 4-for-27 funk, with one extra-base hit and nine Ryan Goins Jersey strikeouts.

But a significant change for Garcia, 25, has been not letting slumps get too deep. That stretch was followed by an 8-for-22 run, punctuated Troy Tulowitzki Jersey by three singles in a 7-4 loss to the Tigers on Sunday.

Having a better understanding of what went wrong allows Garcia a better opportunity to build on the positive.

“Hitters always have — I wouldn’t use the word ‘fear’ — a problem with getting out,” Steverson said. “You get out a lot, but it’s like everybody wants to do well.

“So when it doesn’t happen consistently, it’s how you deal with it. He’s dealing with his outs better, understanding how that kind of correlates. ‘I’m out, but did I hit it well? I’m out, but am I out because I swung at a bad pitch?’ You are able to put those in a better place in your brain than to just say, ‘I was out.’

“It’s a question of, why were you out?” Steverson said. “Did you get out because you hit it right at somebody? In that case, what can you do? Or did you let them have an at-bat? What function did you not execute during those one or two minutes you were there?”

The 2013 three-team trade with Detroit and Boston brought Garcia to the White Sox as the center of their most recent rebuild prior to 2017. He was labeled a five-tool talent — tools which hadn’t been on display consistently until this season.

Even through his struggles, the organization stood behind Garcia. And as general manager Rick Hahn Russell Martin Jersey out recently, executive vice president Ken Williams emerged as a strong Josh Donaldson Jersey supporter. Garcia is a player who needs to be involved in all aspects of the game, so Williams believed he would excel with a return to right field from designated Jose Bautista Jersey hitter.

That support has been rewarded as Garcia develops greater knowledge of his game.

“One thing I tried to remind people around here is that his acceleration to the big leagues was really quick,” Williams told MLB.com. “But if you look at the physical talent on the guy, there’s not too many guys that have his total package.

“Sometimes you have to allow Kevin Pillar Jersey that to take a step back in your expectation and take a step forward in your patience. So yeah, I fought for him, and I’ll continue to fight for him, because I believe in him.”

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.

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.

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.
