Chicago White Sox Team Report - April 28

(Sports Network) - Esteban Loaiza allowed just one run through seven solid innings of work to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 3-1 win over the Minnesota Twins at U.S. Cellular Field on Sunday.

Jose Valentin homered and Carlos Lee drove in a run for the White Sox, who despite managing just three hits, won their second in a row after a three-game losing skid.

The three runs were all Loaiza (5-0) needed to pick up the win. The righthander struck out eight and did not permit a walk as he joined the Yankees' Mike Mussina as the only pitchers in the American League at 5-0.

Damaso Marte pitched the final two scoreless frames for his first save. Chicago has the day off on Monday and will resume play again on Tuesday against the Oakland A's.

White Sox manager Jerry Manuel was ejected in the first inning for arguing a tag call at first base.

Chicago ace, Bartolo Colon, gets the call for the White Sox on Tuesday, as he tries to record his third victory of the season. He suffered his first loss of the season in his most recent outing after throwing six innings and allowing five runs on seven hits to go along with three strikeouts and two walks.

Colon (2-1) will make just his seventh career start against the A's on Tuesday and will try to improve on his 2-1 record and 5.75 ERA lifetime against them. He has traditionally had control problems when facing Oakland, as he has walked 26 batters in 36 innings against the A's.
