BOSTAN (AP) Luis Robert killed Homer twice over Green Monster, and Vince Velázquez stopped a difficult road by giving five solid innings and brought out the Chicago White Sox bypassing the Boston Red Sox 4-2 on Friday night and finishing fourth. . direct victory.
Tim Anderson had three singles games, and Reese McGuire and Jose Abreu made a sacrificial flight in favor of the AL Central champions (12-13), who came one step closer to 0.500 after a series of eight defeats last month.
“We played. “I didn’t blame the effort – the performance wasn’t great at times,” said Chicago manager Tony La Rousse of his team’s turnaround. “We’re minus one now. We need a lot of wins.”
Jackie Bradley Jr. had an RBI double for Boston (10-17), who lost 12 of 16.
“We need to get together and start having a lot of collectively good bats,” Bradley said. “These were certain places, certain times. … Our confidence is unshakable. It’s not too early to panic or something like that. “
After entering 0-7 with a 13.50 ERA in his last seven starts, the 29-year-old Velázquez (2-2) spent a dormant Boston offense to three strokes and a run.
“If you stay modest in the game, everything will turn out for you,” said Velázquez, speaking softly at his locker. “You are in a big crowd, the fans will be chaotic. I think it slows down a bit and breathes through it. ”
Liam Hendrix scored three in the ninth for his eighth save.
Robert’s shot from Nathan Evaldi (1-1) freed the chairs and completely left Fenway Park in the third inning, giving the White Sox the lead 3-0 after a sacrificial flight from Aubrey.
“Give the boy his due,” La Rousse said of Velázquez. “He knows what he is struggling with. Evaldi throws the ball as well as anyone in baseball. ”
Boston’s second baseman Trevor Story went 1-1 on the final after scoring in all four appearances when the Red Sox were beaten by six Angels 8-0 strikes on Thursday.
Evaldi gave up three runs and six strokes in five innings, striking out four with three moves. In his previous two starts he has allowed only two runs, making 14 strikeouts.
White Sox: Andrew Vaughn is on the list of victims on Thursday with a bruise on his right wrist. INF Danny Mendick has been recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.
Red Sox: Before the game, add CF Kike Hernandez and left-hander Rich Hill to the list of victims of COVID-19. Raised CF Jarren Durand and selected RHP John Schreiber of Triple-A Worcester to fill the list.
WHAT A HAND!
Bradley tossed AJ Pollock to the plate in the ninth when he tried to score the ball at midfield right.
FROM OUTPUT TO CLEANING
The 25-year-old Duran recaptured the lead after hitting a .397 with Worcester. He went 1 on 4 with a three and scored a run. In his second inning in defense a quick outfielder ran across the grass to pick up two large chunks of rubbish and then ran to the Red Sox bullpen to throw them away.
The Red Sox ranked 24th in the major races.
The White Sox: RHP Dylan Stop (3-1, 2.48 ERA) is scheduled to begin Saturday after Monday’s stellar release when he struck out 11, allowing just one hit in seven innings against the Angels.
Red Sox: heavyweight right-hander Nick Pivet (0-4, 7.84) has not missed a fifth inning in any of his last four starts, giving up a joint 14 runs.
