Pirates beat White Sox 3-2

Sox go 1-4 on brief road trip The Chicago White Sox surprisingly got out to an early lead in today’s 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Leury Garcia hit a solo shot in the second inning over the right-center field wall. It was the first time the Sox scored first in a game since May 9. The lead did not last for a full inning. The Pirates came storming back with two in the bottom-half of the inning. Sean Rodriguez doubled home two to take the one-run lead. White Sox starting pitcher Hector Santiago settled down nicely after that, not giving up a run the rest of his five innings of...

Pirates beat White Sox 7-0; Lopez pitches just two innings

Not a fun one to watch tonight... Okay, so I started today’s gamethread saying this will be a watchable game. I am so, so sorry. I can’t think of a more problematic opening to a game the way tonight’s started. The White Sox couldn’t put a point on the board in the top of the first inning, and then, well, things didn’t get any better after that. Reynaldo Lopez got ahead 0-1 against leadoff hitter Adam Frazier, but tried sneaking another fastball by him to no avail. Frazier put it over the right field wall and came close to depositing it into the Allegheny River. Gregory...

Pirates and Trevor Williams stifle White Sox, 7-0

Last week, in their previous game against Reynaldo Lopez and the Chicago White Sox, the Pirates couldn’t figure out the 24-year-old right hander. They didn’t get a runner on base until the fourth inning, and outside of two solo homers, didn’t score any runs over his 7 1/3 innings.

Moncada’s back, baby! Time: 6:05 p.m. CST TV: NBC Sports Chicago Radio: WGN 720 White Sox fans finally get what should be a watchable game tonight. Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson and Reynaldo Lopez — the future — all in the starting lineup. Lopez looked good in his last outing against these Pirates. He went 7 1⁄3 innings, giving up just two earned runs while striking out six. I’d love to see Lopez utilize his straight changeup a bit more. It can be an effective pitch when he throws it at the same arm angle to his fastball. Trevor Williams gets the start for the Pirates. The...
