CHICAGO (AP) – Rookie Gavin Litz completed a three-game winning streak at the end of the seventh and defeated the Chicago White Sox 5-3 over the Minnesota Twins in the second game of the doubles on Monday.
Minnesota won the opening game 3-2 in eight rounds, but the White Sox prevented it when the Sheets of Twins Ace Jose Berrios put a 3-1 lead and pulled it deep to the right for their fifth round. Berrios (7-4) entered the seventh, allowing only two shots – one shot by Jose Abreu and Ioan Moncada – before Brian Goodwin took the lead with one shot and Berrios allowed Andrew Vaughn to hit the line.
A wild pitch moved the runners up, then the Puck joined in to win the Chicago game.
Aaron Bammer (2-4) finished seventh for the White Sox.
Mitch Garver dreamed of returning from a serious blood injury to his first two fathers in a nightmare.
Garver, who has been active from the 10-day list of injuries between games, hit a lone shot in the second half by Reynaldo Lopez. He followed with a longer solo homer to center right than Matt Foster in the fourth for his 10th homer. The 30-year-old kitten has not played since June 1, when he was hit with the unfortunate tip of Trey Mancini in Baltimore and needed surgery.
Berrios hit eight and took one step. Lopez allowed two runs in the first half of the season in three innings.
The White Sox won 10 out of eight.
In the first game, Nelson Cruz hit the victim fly in the eighth after closing the game with a separate homer in the sixth. Jorge Polanco added an RBI single in the eighth as Minnesota ended a three-game losing streak.
Tyler Duffy (2-2) finished seventh, working over two laps and going for the win.
Tim Anderson was hoping for a third straight game and extended his series of shots to the top 16 before sitting down for the second game. Anderson was a Chicago runner-up in the eighth round and scored against Jose Abreu, but Hansel Robles kept a 10th chance in 12 chances.
Lance Lynn allowed one in five innings in five innings, lowering the AL era decision to 1.94. The 34-year-old right-handed man hit four and was one of the first to make it, as he signed a two-year, two-year, $ 38 million contract with Chicago that covers 2022 and 2023.
Griffin Jacks of Minnesota allowed just one shot – Anderson’s individual shot – in four laps when he hit six and went on to start the second start of his career. The twins added the 26-year-old right-back to their roster from Triple-A Saint-Paul as the 27-man double.
If Jax hadn’t caught fire in his hanging hand, maybe Jax would have gone longer,
“I was just worried that if I continued to go there with a blister, I wouldn’t be able to leave the field with so much intention or anger that I was at the beginning of the game,” Jacks said.
Anderson joined the Jacks football team 2-0 with two appearances in the third, putting Chicago ahead 1-0.
Cruz’s 19th homer, to the left field bull with two appearances in the sixth, tied it to 1.
White Sox CF Louis Robert will begin his recovery assignment with Class A Winston-Salem on Wednesday. She was out on May 2 after breaking her right ankle.
“I’ve never suffered an injury like that,” Robert said through an interpreter during a video conference with reporters. “I didn’t expect the process to go down so quickly. I’m just excited. “
Robert quickly hit a .316 with a homer and eight RBIs when he was injured.
Jax is a U.S. Air Force reserve captain and the first graduate of the Air Force Academy to play on the field.
In his first start, in Kansas City on July 3, Jax allowed six runs in five innings with a loss. She is 4-1 with 3.09 ERA in St. Paul.
The twins recalled LHP Danny Coulomb from the paternity list and selected RHP Beau Burrows to St. Paul. … White Sox RHP recalled Matt Foster of Triple-A Charlotte to serve as his 27th player.
