Tuesday's recap: White Sox 9, Red Sox 4 – Chicago Tribune
The White Sox extended their winning streak to six games and moved to two games below .500 for the first time since June 10 with a 9-4 victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday night at Fenway Park. The White Sox have outscored their opponents 45-17 during their 6-0 trip to Cleveland and Boston.
Melky Cabrera, Geovany Soto and Emilio Bonifacio doubled in runs against left-hander Wade Miley in the five-run first.
On the mound
With eight-plus innings pitched, Jeff Samardzija has thrown at least seven innings in 10 consecutive games, a career high and the longest streak in baseball this year.
After a White Sox challenge, Jose Abreu was credited with a two-run homer in the sixth when center fielder Mookie Betts caught the ball but dropped it after jumping and falling over the bullpen wall in right-center.
6 — Consecutive multi-hit games for Cabrera, the most by a White Sox player since Jermaine Dye had six in 2009.
“I know there’s a lot of speculation and there is probably a Shark Watch somewhere. He’s done a great job of just staying focused on what he’s doing. I enjoy having him go out there every five days, that’s for sure.” — Manager Robin Ventura on Samardzija blocking out trade rumors
The quote II
“The way these guys have been playing behind us pitchers has been pretty impressive, not only the runs, but the way they’ve been playing defense has been outstanding. … Even our video staff was getting in on the action, having a great day.” — Samardzija
At Red Sox, 6:10 p.m. Wednesday, CSN.
