BOSTAN (AP) – Dallas Keichel ended his three-game losing streak with six solid innings, Jose Abreu scored a double, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Sunday, winning their sixth straight win.
Llory Garcia added an RBI single for the White Sox (14-13), who surpassed 0.500 for the first time since April 20 and ended the trip 5-0, including three wins at Fenway Park.
Christian Vazquez had an RBI single for Boston (10-19), which lost five seasons in a row and 14 of 18.
Keichel (2-3) allowed two runs on eight strokes, swinging five and passing one after posting a 9.90 ERA in his previous three starts.
Left-back rookie Bennet Souza finished off striker Kevin Plaveki, who flew to the center in the final exit, recording his first save in the major leagues with a potential draw in the second. Liam Hendrix’s regular rapprochement has been unavailable due to recent congestion.
Abreu, who took a double in Saturday’s 3-1 victory, sent his double on the left field line in third against filling starter Tanner Hawk (2-3) after Garcia’s kick brought Chicago ahead.
J.D. Martinez got a productive result, and Vazquez performed with the RBI single for Boston in sixth place.
Hawk gave up three runs in 2 2/3 innings after replacing scheduled starter Michael Wach. Eye was included in the list of victims 15 days after after his last session the bullpen felt pain in his left side.
White Sox: 3B John Mancado, who has been in Illinois since last week’s spring training session with a tense right oblique tilt, is expected on Monday. RHP Joe Kelly with a right biceps injury is also ready to return. … La Russa said after the game that RHP Aaron Bummer had an MRI on Saturday after feeling something in the back of his right knee and would go to IL with a sprain or sprain.
Red Sox: Manager Alex Cora said Eye had an MRI done on Saturday and “everything was clean,” but about an hour later they announced he was going to IL. RHP Tyler Danish was promoted from Triple-A.
Ron Kulp’s plate was due to leave in the fourth after removing a foul from a mask that knocked him to the ground.
Coaches from both teams ran out, catcher Red Sox Vazquez called for help, and the rest of the referee approached the plate. Kupala stood before going on his own. Marty Foster from first base moved to the plate after a 20-minute delay.
IT WAS AMAZING
Red Sox RF Christian Arroyo attacked single and made a throw towards the third, trying to get Garcia, but the ball hit the bag of the second base and flew into the air before Xander Bagherts caught it.
Red Sox LF Alex Verduga wore a microphone to broadcast national television. The interview began shortly before Kulpa was injured, and lasted most of the delay when Verduga stood in the center of the center field all alone, as most of the players left the field, except for two other field players who stood at the bullpen wall during the delay.
White Sox: Open a series of three home games against Cleveland on Monday. RHP Michael Kopech (0-0, 1.17 ERA) starts in Chicago.
Red Sox: Weekend Monday before the start of the five-game trip Tuesday in Atlanta. RHP Gareth Whitlock (1-1, 1.25) has to start against defending World Series champions in the first of two games.
