White Sox Matt Davidson snaps slump in Cleveland Indians Custom Jersey Oakland

OAKLAND — While the White Sox lost, 7-4, on Wednesday to drop two out of three games in Oakland, rookie Matt Davidson seemed to break out of a slump.

Davidson scuffled during the White Sox’s 10-game homestand after starting it with a two-hit night against the A’s on June 24. Davidson went 1-for-27 over seven ensuing games, with Rick Renteria giving him two games off in a row last Friday and Saturday Personalized Chiefs Jersey to “kind of take a breath.”

“It definitely helps,” Davidson said of the two days off. “It’s nice when a Cleveland Indians Custom Jersey manager does that for you and is on the same page [with you]. It was good, but I’m excited to play every day.”

The benefits of the break were noticeable in Oakland, with Davidson picking up a hit in each game, going 4-for-12 across the three-game series. He hit an RBI double Monday night in Chicago’s 7-2 win over the A’s and added two singles on Tuesday afternoon.

Then, on Wednesday, Davidson hit a 2-1 fastball from A’s starter Sonny Gray over the center-field wall for a 2-run homer, his 18th of the year. According Custom Indians Jersey to Statcast™, the line-drive homer was hit 112.6 mph on a 20-degree launch angle and traveled a projected 424 feet.

“Sonny’s pretty tough — everything moves differently and there’s different speeds on all of [his pitches],” Davidson said. “I was just trying to keep him in the zone and get a good pitch. He left one out and over, and I hit it.”

With 18 homers, Davidson is now tied for the second-most homers by a White Sox rookie before the All-Star break, matching Zeke Bonura in 1934, Carlos May in ’69 and Ron Kittle in ’83. Only Jose Abreu hit more as a rookie, launching 29 in 2014.

With a .247 batting average and 42 RBIs to go alongside the 18 homers, Davidsons said he’s “happy to be where I’m at so far, but there’s still plenty of stuff to work on.” Renteria hopes that Davidson doesn’t give “too much credence” to slumps Custom Chiefs Jersey, which all big league hitters will face at some Personalize Panthers Jersey point.

“We all know he has the skill set that, once it’s honed and developed, he can go and be a consistent contributor at the plate and on the field also,” Renteria said Tuesday. “This young man gives you solid at-bats. He’s had some ups and downs, but for the most part, everyone can see there is something there that provides optimism in terms of what he can potentially be as he moves forward as a player.”Women’s Nike Personalized Carolina Panthers Elite Alternate Powder Blue NFL Jersey.

Jed Lowrie’s 3 Custom Indians Jersey hits power A’s over White Sox

OAKLAND Custom Indians Jersey — Veteran Custom Chiefs Jersey Jed Lowrie enjoyed a three-hit day, while rookie teammates Bruce Maxwell and Jaycob Brugman combined for three RBIs to help the A’s secure a 7-4 series-winning victory over the White Sox behind Sonny Gray on Wednesday afternoon at the Coliseum.Men’s Authentic Personalized Cleveland Indians Navy Blue Alternate 1 Jersey Sale.

Gray was excellent, his lone mistake hit for a two-run homer by Matt Davidson in the fifth. The right-hander yielded just two other hits in six innings, striking out five and walking two in the 98-pitch outing to finish the first half with a 4.00 ERA.

“I just feel like I’m able to do what I want with the baseball right now,” Gray said. “When I’m at my best, that’s what I’m going to be doing. I feel good.”

White Sox starter Mike Pelfrey was out of the game after just 3 1/3 innings with Cleveland Indians Custom Jersey four runs allowed on five hits, including a solo homer to Brugman in the fourth. Maxwell tagged him for a two-run double in the third.

Davidson’s bat perks up in Oakland series

“He got really deep into his pitch count — he was in the 90s by the fourth inning,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “They grounded him out. He was trying to hit his spots. He ended up missing a little, [and] they worked him till they could get him out as quickly as possible.”Women’s Nike Personalized Carolina Panthers Elite Alternate Powder Blue NFL Jersey.

Chicago’s Todd Frazier slammed a two-out, two-run homer against lefty Sean Doolittle in the ninth inning, his 16th of the season.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED

Leading off: Matt Joyce set the tone for the A’s with a leadoff double, continuing an encouraging offensive trend following Tuesday’s seven-run output on the heels of a five-game lull. Joyce advanced to third on Lowrie’s first hit of the day, easily scoring the game’s first run when Khris Davis grounded into a double play. Joyce reached base two times from the leadoff spot, scoring on both occasions.

Running wild: The A’s utilized the running game to generate a pair of insurance runs in the fourth inning. After Brugman’s homer, Rajai Davis kept things going with a one-out base hit and proceeded to steal second and third base on consecutive pitches from White Sox reliever Gregory Infante. Joyce drew a walk against the right-hander and swiped second, putting two runners in scoring position for Lowrie, who drove both home with a two-run single for a 6-0 lead. Davis stole two more bases in the sixth under the watch of catcher Kevan Smith, who has thrown out just one of 27 attempted base stealers this season.Youth Nike Personalize Kansas City Chiefs Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt.

“It gets them on their toes a little bit, and pitchers have to be a little quicker to the plate and cognizant of him on base,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “I think I looked today and we were 13th in stolen bases in the league, so we might have moved up a little bit. When Raj gets on, he’s one of the premier guys in the league and that’s what he can do.”

QUOTABLE
“It’s not good. I tried to tell myself to be more efficient, be quicker and get more outs, and I wasn’t able to do that. These guys made me work, and I made some mistakes, and they seemed to put those balls in play. But [28] foul balls in 3 1/3 [innings] is kind of crazy. And I think I had 10 three-ball counts, too, which is pretty bad on my side and a pretty frustrating day.” — Pelfrey, on his 99-pitch outing

SOUND SMART WITH YOUR FRIENDS
The A’s finished with six stolen bases. The last time they recorded as many steals in a game was Aug. 6, 2011, against the Rays, when they had seven.

WHAT’S NEXT
White Sox: The White Sox will have Thursday off before heading to Denver for a three-game Interleague series with the Rockies, beginning at 7:40 p.m. CT on Friday. Left-hander Derek Holland (5-8, 4.52 ERA) will start amidst a tough stretch, having gone Personalized Chiefs Jersey 1-4 since the beginning of June.

A’s: The A’s head to Seattle to close out the first half with a four-game series at Safeco Field. Rookie right-hander Paul Blackburn will be on the mound in Thursday’s 7:10 p.m. PT opener against his former organization.

White Sox Avisail Garcia out Personalize Panthers Jersey with knee injury

OAKLAND — White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia, the lone representative for the team in the 2017 All-Star Game presented by Mastercard, is close to Personalize Panthers Jersey returning to the lineup but missed his fifth straight game Monday with left knee soreness.

Garcia did not start Monday night in the first of a three-game series in Oakland, but he participated in a full complement of baseball activity before the White Sox faced the A’s.Men’s Authentic Personalized Cleveland Indians Navy Blue Alternate 1 Jersey Sale.

Full Game Coverage

“I feel better. I got a full batting practice today and I caught fly balls,” Garcia said. “I’ve been running already, but I’ve got to run the bases during batting practice and I’m taking a full batting practice. I’ll see how I feel and see if I can play tomorrow.”Women’s Nike Personalized Carolina Panthers Elite Alternate Powder Blue NFL Jersey.

Garcia and manager Rick Renteria stressed caution as Garcia gets treatment on the knee, with Renteria saying he’s hopeful that Garcia will be available at some point in Oakland.

“I want him to go through the whole routine today so I can have a sense of security of where he’s at,” Renteria said before Monday’s game. “I don’t want to rush him back without having a full understanding of what the regular routine is going to do to him.”

“You’ve got to be careful with the knee. You only have two,” Garcia added with a laugh. “It’s Cleveland Indians Custom Jersey probably the base of my leg, so you’ve got to be reyally Custom Panthers Jerse careful with it.

“I’d prefer to lose five days and then play a game. I don’t want to lose two weeks to four weeks. That’s why we’re really careful with that.”

And while he’s focused on returning for the White Sox, getting a chance to play in Miami next week is an added bonus for the American League All-Star, who is batting .318 with 11 homers and 51 RBIs on the year. Renteria has been proud of the effort he’s given all season.

“He’s done a great job for us in the first half of the season. He’s continued to improve, both in the field and at the plate,” Renteria said. “He always gives you high energy and he’s always hustling. He’s done a lot of good things, and he’s put together very good approaches at the plate this year.”

Worth noting

• Renteria said closer David Robertson (paternity leave) will probably not be back with the team in Oakland. Renteria added the White Sox will play matchups, but said it’d be “easy” to have right-hander Tommy Kahnle be the closer.

“There’s no apprehension on our part to be able to use [Kahnle] in that role Custom Chiefs Jersey. None whatsoever,” Renteria said. “It’s just a matter of where we’re at in the game and what’s going on.”

• Reliever Nate Jones (right elbow neuritis) is traveling with the White Sox as he continues his rehab. Renteria said it’s a sign of progress for him and that he’ll continue to play catch and work back slowly.

• Outfielder Leury Garcia (sprained finger) is in Arizona to continue his rehabilitation after being placed on the disabled list June 19. Renteria said he’s likely to get a Minor League rehab assignment before returning to the White Sox.

• Infielder Tyler Saladino (back spasms) started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Monday. He’s been out since May 27.

White Sox Michael Ynoa back Custom Panthers Jersey in Oakland

OAKLAND — It’s been nine years and one day since White Sox reliever Michael Custom Panthers Jersey Ynoa signed as an international free agent with the A’s.

On Monday, with a winding journey that included two surgeries and a trade, the right-hander will step foot in the Coliseum as a big leaguer for the first time.

Full Game Coverage

“It is an honor for me to be here,” Ynoa said. “I was here when I signed just one time to see the field. I feel happy to be back here and play against them.”

On July 2, 2008, Ynoa signed for a $4.25 million bonus with the A’s, then the highest bonus the team had ever given. The team flew him to Oakland to see the Custom Chiefs Jersey stadium shortly after, with Ynoa vividly remembering his first visit.

“I always remember, back in Personalized Chiefs Jersey the day when they brought me here for the first time, they took me on the mound. I was looking and dreaming, all that stuff,” Ynoa said.

Ynoa was highly regarded by the A’s, but only pitched as high as Class A Advanced Stockton with the club. Injuries hampered him throughout his time with the A’s, with Tommy John surgery requiring him to miss most of 2010 and all of 2011.

Oakland traded him to the White Sox on Dec. 9, 2014, along with right-hander Jeff Samardzija, for a package that included three current Major League players for the A’s — shortstop Marcus Semien, catcher Josh Phegley and right-hander Chris Bassitt.

“My wish was to play with Oakland, but something happened that you can’t control and I’m here [with Chicago],” Ynoa said. “I thank the Oakland A’s for giving me the opportunity to train me to get to the big leagues. Thanks to God first, but then to them and the White Sox, too.”

Ynoa made his Major League debut June 14 last year for the White Sox and pitched once against the A’s in 2016, giving up a run in one inning Aug. 19 in Chicago. He admitted he felt “butterflies in my stomach” when he faced Custom Indians Jersey the A’s for the first time.

But for Ynoa, getting a chance to finally pitch in the Coliseum will be Men’s Authentic Personalized Cleveland Indians Navy Blue Alternate 1 Jersey Sale omething he cherishes.

“I think it’s going to be my wish for today, to get an opportunity to pitch here against my old team,” Ynoa said. “It’s going to be different — I think it’s going to be a little bit nervous. All the fans from here were helping me a lot through the surgery and everything. I think it’s going to be a good three days here.”Women’s Nike Personalized Carolina Panthers Elite Alternate Powder Blue NFL Jersey.

Orioles’ Welington Castillo hits grand slam

CHICAGO Customized Cleveland Browns Jersey — Welington Castillo smacked his first career grand slam and recorded a career-best five RBIs as the Orioles snapped their six-game losing six, and an 0-11 mark on the road, with a 10-6 win over the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field on Wednesday night.

“You kind of think you’re having ‘Groundhog Day’ there for a little while, but guys just refused to give in,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It’s been a tough stretch for us. We didn’t pitch particularly well, but we were fortunate there were a lot of balls hit hard they we were able to make plays on.”

Full Game Coverage

White Sox right-hander Miguel Gonzalez sat through a 90-minute rain delay before surrendering a season-high eight runs — his most since June 25, 2016, at Toronto — with seven of those runs coming in the fourth and fifth innings. He loaded the bases in each of those frames, allowing three to score in the fourth on a fielder’s choice and a two-run single to Hyun Soo Kim before serving up the slam to Castillo in the fifth.

Grand slams mean 40% off pizza

“I felt like my four-seam was cutting,” Gonzalez said. “The ball wasn’t doing what I wanted to. I felt like my [arm] slot was a little lower than usual. It’s something I have to fix, and then we’ll be OK.”

Castillo’s slam, which Statcast™ projected traveled 439 feet, was the Orioles’ second grand slam this season. It was also responsible for four of the seven two-out runs the team had Wednesday.

“Honestly, I like that situation,” Castillo said. “I’m the kind of guy who likes to come into that situation, because I’m not afraid to fail. This game is about making adjustments. I was just patient in that situation and he left me a fastball up, out over [the plate] and I was able to put a good swing on it.”

O’s starter Dylan Bundy lacked his typical poise and command. He allowed more than three runs for the second time this season, allowing five runs (four earned) all in the first two innings. Chicago got to him early on a two-run single, and a Matt Davidson homer. But Bundy retired nine of the last 11 batters he faced.

“Throwing and pitching are two different things there,” Bundy said. “I didn’t execute in the first two innings, and then started pitching later in the game.”

Alen Hanson slugged his first Major League home run for the White Sox in the ninth inning. It was the first pinch-hit homer of the season for Chicago.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Second chances: The Orioles looked ready to limit the damage of an early White Sox lead in the second, catching Yolmer Sanchez too far off the bag when rounding third base for what should have been the second out. Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop’s throw was high, allowing Sanchez to score and another runner to eventually score on Jose Abreu’s sac fly. Schoop got the last laugh, drawing a two-out walk — his 15th in 249 plate appearances — to load the bases just before Castillo’s grand slam.

“I’m one pitch away, and it’s been like that the whole year, but I’m sure it’s going to change at some point,” Gonzalez said of the Schoop at-bat Customized Carolina Panthers Jersey. “I’m going to put my head down and keep working hard, and good things are going to happen.

Schoop was pleased with his restraint during the key plate appearance.

“If you [make] a mistake, you’ve got to come up and forget about it,” he said. “I was trying to have good at-bats, and trying to [make sure] the ball is a strike. If you know me, you know I’m aggressive, and if you throw it out of the zone, I might get myself out. I had a better game plan today.”

Davidson dingers again: Davidson led off the second inning with a bang, taking Bundy to the opposite field for a leadoff homer — his third blast in as many days. Davidson’s homer had an exit velocity of 106.3 mph and traveled a projected 415 feet, according to Statcast™. This is the first time he’s hit homers in three consecutive games. The blast moved Davidson to 5-for-11 for the series with seven RBIs. He leads the White Sox with 13 home runs this season.

“He’s hitting well but it comes and goes,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “I think for the most part his approach and his routine has been pretty consistent. The outcome hasn’t been what he’s wanted prior to this little spurt and all that he’s kind of picking up again. But I think again if he gets pitches he can handle he’s able to do some damage with them.”

QUOTABLE
“Was that his first career home run? Wow. Goodness. Thank you for telling me that. I didn’t know that. Custom Browns Jersey In the big leagues? Yeah. He went in there, he looked very calm at the plate. Took a couple pitches — or one pitch — and then got a pitch to hit and obviously hit it out of the ballpark. All the Men’s Nike Carolina Panthers Custom Elite Team Color Black Super Bowl 50 Bound Jersey guys were excited for him, yes.” — Renteria, on Hanson’s first career homer

“I’m going to get a couple swings off. That’s my expectation right now. I’m in the lineup … DH, first base, wherever. I’m in the lineup and that’s a big thing for me.” — Orioles rookie David Washington, who went 0-for-4 and struck out three times in his Major League debut

SOUND SMART WITH YOUR FRIENDS
White Sox right Custom Panthers Jersey fielder Avisail Garcia continues to impress in a breakout 2017, and did so again Wednesday night in collecting three hits against the Orioles. It marked the American League-leading 10th time this season Garcia has collected three hits in a game, moving his season batting average to .339 — second-best in the AL.

ROSTER MOVE
The White Sox announced they will option reliever Juan Minaya to Triple-A
Men’s Nike Carolina Panthers Custom Elite Team Color Black Super Bowl 50 Bound Jersey Charlotte following the loss. Minaya worked two innings Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits.

Orioles: Right-hander Chris Tillman (1-4, 8.01) will start for Baltimore in the series finale Thursday at Guaranteed Rate Field at 2:10 p.m. ET.

White Sox James Shields to Customized Cincinnati Bengals Jersey come off DL Sunday

CHICAGO — James Shields, on the disabled list since April 21, will return to the White Sox starting rotation on Sunday in Customized Cleveland Browns Jersey Toronto.

The veteran right-hander is expected to be activated from his first stint on the disabled list Sunday. It will be his first start since sustaining a strained right lat on April 16.

“I got up to 90 pitches down there in my last start, progressed pretty well,” Men’s Nike Carolina Panthers Custom Elite Team Color Black Super Bowl 50 Bound Jersey Shields said. “I feel pretty good. I’m ready to go. I felt good for the most part, and I’m ready to rock.”

Shields got off to a solid start this season, posting a 1.62 ERA in three starts after a 6-19 record in 2016. Shields said he had a good feel for his stuff during his three rehab outings, and his arm strength is good to go for a full-fledged return.

“My very first game, I feel I started off right where I left off Custom Bengals Jersey. Obviously Custom Browns Jersey, it’s a work in progress. I’m still getting my arm back in shape. I feel like it’s pretty good right now. I feel pretty solid to go,” he said.

Shields’ first career DL stint saw him return to a place he hadn’t been in 12 years — riding the buses of Minor League life.

“I was a road warrior for the Charlotte Knights there for a little bit,” he said. “I got one bus ride in. It brought back a few memories. I think it’s been 11 or 12 years since I’ve been Customized Cincinnati Bengals Jersey in the Minor Leagues, so it was pretty interesting.”

With Shields’ return, the White Sox are expected to move left-hander David

Worth noting

• White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia should be good to go despite being hit by a pitch on his left elbow during the sixth inning of Tuesday’s over the Orioles, and was listed in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Men’s Nike Cincinnati Bengals Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey
barring any setbacks.

• Renteria received a delayed celebration for his 100th career win as a manager Tuesday, shortly after his 101st career win when the White Sox topped the Orioles. The team gave Renteria a brief beer shower, which Renteria said caught him by surprise.

“Yeah, it did, I appreciated it,” Renteria said. “I wasn’t thinking about it. Honestly, I wasn’t aware of it. I was taken aback a little bit. I was pleasantly surprised by their interest in it. So they gave me their bath. It was interesting. It was fun.”

White Sox pitchers nearing return from DL Men’s Nike Carolina Panthers Custom Elite Team Color Black Super Bowl 50 Bound Jersey

ST. PETERSBURG — The White Sox have six pitchers on the disabled Custom Panthers Jersey list, but the South Siders’ list of walking wounded could begin to get a little shorter as soon as next week.

Starter James Shields will make his next rehab start with the Charlotte Knights on Thursday.

Full Game Coverage

In his first rehab start on Sunday, Shields (1-0, 1.62) allowed one earned run in four innings, striking out three.

Those players represent a change under general manager Rick Hahn, with a move away from the pure athletes to the more polished baseball players.

“I don’t know if it’s fair to say change in philosophy,” Hahn said. “We want to have guys who we project will have an impact in Chicago and fit a certain profile both offensively as well as ideally defensively and how we want the game played.

“We are looking for athletic players like everybody in the game. But certainly those who come with a level of acumen and have a track record of success and are able to bring certain elements to the game we’ve been lacking for the last several years around here.”

In total, the White Sox selected 22 pitchers (14 right-handers, eight left-handers), two catchers, nine infielders and seven outfielders. They picked 34 collegiate players and six from the high school level.

Through the first 30 rounds, eighth-rounder Sam Abbott stood as the only high school pick. He was an All-State water polo player and a projectable baseball

“There was a time in the third round where we were targeting a high school guy and got picked,” Hostetler said. “We got picked three different times on high school players.”

First-round pick Jake Burger, a third baseman from Missouri State, figures to be part of the first big wave of White Sox prospects coming in the next year or year and a half. He’s also an example of the power emphasis, along with the low-strikeout, high-walk philosophy targeted the last two years.

“You will see what’s more important to us is understanding of the strike zone and doing damage on pitches within the zone,” Hahn said. “Trying the best to lay off pitches out of the zone.

“Not every pick is going to be exactly on the screws for all regards. You try to find enough guys that have a balanced skillset and a level of performance and a level of enthusiasm from scouts in that room that they project that player continuing to be or becoming a player that we feel can have success in Chicago.”

“We’ve added high-impact, power middle-of-the-order bats that really control the strike zone,” said Hostetler, who pointed to 11th-round pick Will Kincanon and 14th-round pick Alex Destino as possible standouts from Wednesday. “That was our key. We started adding some guys who can run today and we had some big power arms.”
