Chicago White Sox
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the American League’s mid-season team MVPs.
The Chicago White Sox snapped a four-game losing streak with a 16-2 victory Sunday over the Texas Rangers, who had won five in a row.
Colby Lewis pitched into the sixth inning for his first win in nearly two years, Prince Fielder homered and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 6-3 on Saturday night.
Perez pitched a three-hitter for his first career shutout, Leonys Martin drove in four runs and the Rangers routed the Chicago White Sox 12-0 Friday night.
Yu Darvish pitched into the fifth inning and catcher J.P. Arencibia hit a grand slam, leading the Texas Rangers to a 14-8 spring win against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.
Hard-hitting Jose Abreu, a recent Cuban defector, becomes the new White Sox first baseman.
Saunders, signed last week to compete for a spot in the Texas starting rotation, gave up three runs and six hits in three innings, striking out four.
Neftali Feliz and Joakim Soria, the leading candidates to replace Joe Nathan as the Texas closer, had contrasting results as the Rangers lost 9-7 to the White Sox on Sunday.
Matt Garza felt he was just a little off. It was enough to make for another shaky outing. Garza gave up two home runs, and the Rangers lost 5-2 to the surging White Sox on Sunday.
Fears of serious injury to Rangers starters Yu Darvish and Leonys Martin were eased in the clubhouse following Saturday night’s 3-2 loss to the White Sox.
Adam Rosales, Jeff Baker and pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland each had two-run shots to go with solo a drive by Adrian Beltre and a bizarre inside-the-park effort by Ian Kinsler in Friday’s 11-5 win.
The Rangers announced Friday they have acquired outfielder Alex Rios from the Chicago White Sox.
