Enrique Hernandez hits Dylan Cez’s first pitch on the wall on the left.
It was a ceasefire and the start of a tough Tuesday for the Chicago White Sox.
The season had his toughest performance of the season in a 16–3 loss to the Boston Red Sox in front of 21,835 at a guaranteed rate field.
The right-handed batsman scored a season-high seven runs on eight hits in a season-low three innings. He had four strikeouts and two walks.
“We’ll have to take some time, look into this,” said Band. “He put some nice swings on it.”
The White Sox allowed season highs in runs and hits (19). The Red Sox also recorded season highs in both categories, while extending their winning streak to six.
Sox manager Tony La Russa said, “You start at 30-something and you’ll have a couple of places where your spot isn’t good,” and he just wasn’t fast and they were ready to hit and paid him. .
“The pitches he played had a lot of strike zones. So he was not that fast and we got him out before he could bowl too much. He is coming back against the Cubs in five days.”
With 67 strikes the majors ceased to lead. Eight of them came early May 7 at Fenway Park in which he allowed one run for four hits in five innings in a game the White Sox won 3–1 in 10 innings.
He got away with the first run with just one run. But Trevor Storey, who was named American League Player of the Week on Monday, made it 4-0 for a three-run homer.
The Red Sox scored at least once in each of the first five innings. He scored two runs in one in the second and third against Siege, getting out after 71 pitches.
“They definitely had some comfortable swings in there,” Struggle said.
The Red Sox also had success against relievers Jose Ruiz (three runs in two-thirds of an innings), Bennett Sousa (five runs in two-thirds of an innings) and Matt Foster (one run in two-thirds of an innings). .
The White Sox conceded four home runs. All nine Red Sox starters had at least one hit, and seven had more than one hit. At least one of the eight starters was RBI.
“(Hernandez’s homer) was good because (Siege) is really, really good,” said Red Sox manager Alex Cora. “He had his way against us in Boston. It was really good from top to bottom.”
Vince Velasquez provided the first inning of the night – and 1-2-3 – for the White Sox in the sixth. This was the first time this season he was working outside the bullpen after making seven starts. He walked one and scored five runs in three hitless innings.
“Vince was fantastic and we got a (scoreless ninth) innings for (Aaron) Bummer, so it wasn’t a total loss tonight,” La Russa said. “Vince threw the ball really well. He wants to start, but obviously if we had to, he could pitch in that role. ,
Red Sox starter Nick Pivetta conceded three runs on five hits with five strikes and two walks in six innings. He retired the first nine before a leadoff double by Tim Anderson in the fourth. Anderson had two hits and an RBI, and Jose Abreu hit a two-run homer.
Homer and Anderson’s fifth inning was the Sox’s only hit with runners in the single scoring position (2-for-10).
“(Pivetta) got us out,” La Russa said. “Give him credit.”
The struggle was already focused on the steps needed to improve for its next start.
“I’ll be upset tonight,” he said, “and then I’ll be back tomorrow and ready to work on it.”
