Putnam ready to relieve relievers

CHICAGO -- New Chicago White Sox reliever Zach Putnam rolled into the clubhouse only three hours before first pitch Thursday, and he was one of the early ones. After Wednesday's 14-inning, 5-hour 17-minute affair against the Boston Red Sox, manager Robin Ventura didn't require his players to arrive until 5 p.m. Fresh from the airport, Putnam practically had the place to himself for a little while. The marathon game Wednesday was the reason bullpen help was needed.

Napoli back in lineup for Sox vs. Sale

CHICAGO—After sitting out one game with a dislocated ring finger on his left hand, Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is back in the starting lineup, batting cleanup against White Sox ace Chris Sale. The Red Sox can use Napoli’s bat. They’re batting a collective .173 (36 for 208) while losing four of the first six games on this trip and have scored just 18 runs. Six of those runs came Wednesday night, when White Sox pitchers walked 15 batters but stranded 16 Sox runners on base before Jackie Bradley Jr.

Jose Abreu now in a 1-for-25 slide

CHICAGO -- Lost in the madness of the Chicago White Sox's 14-inning affair against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night is the fact that Jose Abreu is scuffling at the plate. It was not unexpected that he would have struggles as he transitions to a new league, it’s just that his hot start and disciplined approach at the plate seemed to get everybody used to the idea that he would be able to handle himself just fine in the majors. Wednesday’s 0-for-6 performance, though, means that Abreu is now 1-for-25 since hitting a home run in the fifth inning of Thursday’s game against the...

Just like old times: Konerko has thoughts

Through the first weeks of the season, Paul Konerko has kept a very low profile. That’s understandable, considering the White Sox only faced two left-handed starting pitchers through their first 15 games. Konerko started only one of those games, but he’s in the lineup tonight vs. Boston lefty Jon...

Red Sox defeat White Sox in marathon 14-inning game

Jackie Bradley’s RBI double in the 14th mercifully ended a long haul between Boston and Chicago. (Charles Rex Arbogast/AP) It won’t go down as the longest game of the 2014 season, but Wednesday’s 14-inning affair between the Red Sox and White Sox felt three times as long, with both teams seemingly trying everything they could […]

White Sox walk 15 in 6-4, 14-inning loss to Red Sox

Walks will kill you, they say. Fifteen of them were the cause of a slow, methodical death for the White Sox in a 6-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday at U.S. Cellular Field that ended about 30 minutes after midnight. The Red Sox scored two in the 14th on Jackie Bradley Jr.’s two-out double against utility infielder Leury Garcia, who was forced into action as a pitcher after manager Robin Ventura used four relievers in the eighth inning and all of his...

Bullpen struggles again, changes possible

CHICAGO -- The way the Chicago White Sox tried to give this game away, it was amazing it lasted as long as it did. Over 14 often eye-covering innings Wednesday night, the White Sox were finally their own worst enemy in a 6-4 defeat to the Boston Red Sox. White Sox pitchers walked 15 batters and struck out just five, becoming the first team to walk that many and strike out that few since the Toronto Blue Jays did it in a 2002 game against the Seattle Mariners.

Matt Lindstrom makes case for keeping closer job

Matt Lindstrom’s first impression as the White Sox’ closer hasn’t been a good one, and he knows it. He hopes that manager Robin Ventura extends his leash and gives him more time to prove he’s up to handling the role. It appears as though Ventura will. Not to make excuses, but Lindstrom, a setup man for most of his career with save seasons of 15 and 23 with the Florida Marlins and Houston Astros, has battled to get his 34-year-old body right since spring...
