Chicago White Sox Team Report - April 22nd
(Sports Network) - The White Sox have lost two straight on the heels of a
four-game winning streak. Chicago dropped the final two of its series against
Cleveland, including a 9-2 decision on Monday.
Carlos Lee homered in his fifth straight game for Chicago, becoming the first
White Sox player to accomplish the feat since Frank Thomas in 1994. Lee, who
joined Thomas, Greg Luzinski and Ron Kittle as the only White Sox players in
team history to homer in five straight games, will try and set the team record
tonight by hitting a home run in six straight games. During this stretch, Lee
is 8-for-19 (.421) with 12 RBI and seven runs scored.
Magglio Ordonez doubled in the sixth inning to extend his hitting streak to a
career-high tying 17 games - the longest current run in the majors this
season. D'Angelo Jimenez has reached base safely in 16 straight games.
Jon Garland (0-2) took the loss after surrendering five runs on five hits in 2
2/3 innings. He walked two and fanned one.
Surprising veteran Esteban Loaiza will attempt to stay unbeaten, when he toes
the rubber for the White Sox in their series opener versus Baltimore on
Tuesday. Loaiza has been brilliant this season while posting a 3-0 mark with a
1.31 ERA in his three starts.
The 31-year-old righthander is coming off one of the best outings of his
career in his last start on Thursday when he limited the Kansas City Royals to
one run on four hits, while matching a career-high with 11 strikeouts.
In 20 2/3 innings this season, Loaiza has surrendered just three runs on nine
hits and has fanned 19 batters and walked just five. In 12 career starts
against the Orioles, Loaiza is 5-4 with a 4.19 ERA.
