Karns limited the White Sox to one hit through six innings, while striking out seven.

Only Avisail Garcia (.318), Narvaez (.276), Cabrera (.266), Matt Davidson (.258) and Abreu (.250) have averages at .250 or above, among the White Sox regulars.

They have faced a tough stretch of right-handed starters in Detroit’s Justin Verlander, Minnesota’s Ervin Santana twice, Cleveland’s Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco and the Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka.

“We have to get the confidence in ourselves, the confidence in our work and to keep working hard every day, day by day, game by game, pitch by pitch,” Abreu said. “If we continue doing our http://www.ebluejaysshop.com/Toronto-Blue-Jays-Custom-Jersey job, we’re going to be there by the end of the season.”
