Giolito ends winless streak, White Sox beat Tigers 7-4
DETROIT (AP) — All-Star Lucas Giolito ended a five-start winless streak, Tim Anderson had three hits and scored twice, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 7-4 on Monday night.
All nine starters for the White Sox had at least one hit and seven either scored or drove in a run. Chicago has won three of four after a 2-8 homestand.
JaCoby Jones homered and tripled for Detroit, which has lost 10 of 12 and gone 10-34 since June 1. The Tigers are last in the majors with 3.59 runs per game while the White Sox (4.12) are 28th.
Giolito (12-5) gave up three runs on eight hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out eight.
Tigers starter Spencer Turnbull, returning from the injured list after a back injury, allowed two runs on two hits, two walks and a hit batter in three innings. He struck out seven.
The White Sox loaded the bases in the first on two walks and a hit batter. Turnbull struck out Eloy Jimenez, but Matt Skole blooped a two-run double.
The Tigers made it 2-1 with three two-out singles in the second, with Jake Rogers driving home Travis Demeritte. Rogers and Demeritte each made their major league debuts during Detroit’s 2-8 road trip and were playing at Comerica Park for the first time.
Jones led off the third with his 11th homer, tying the game. Yolmer Sanchez made it 3-2 with an RBI groundout off Gregory Soto (0-5) in the fourth and Ryan Goins hit a bloop single later in the inning to drive in the fourth run.
The Tigers had runners on the corners in the fifth, but Miguel Cabrera grounded into his 14th double play.
Brandon Dixon tripled and scored on Harold Castro’s RBI groundout in the sixth, but the White Sox scored three times in the eighth to go up 7-3.
The Tigers added a run in the ninth off Alex Colome.
Tigers: Detroit placed Jordan Zimmermann on the 10-day injured list with cervical spasms and called up reliever Eduardo Jimenez. Zimmermann, who has struggled with injuries throughout his four seasons in Detroit, is expected to miss at least two starts.
The teams continue a four-game series with a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday. Detroit’s Daniel Norris (3-8, 4.67) faces Dylan Cease (1-4, 6.43) in the first game, with the White Sox expected to bring up Hector Santiago (1-0. 6.75) to face Drew VerHagen (1-2, 11.66) in the nightcap.
BALTIMORE–New York hit five more home runs at Camden Yards, including two by Mike Tauchman, to set a major league record and win its 13th straight game in Baltimore.
New York’s power surge and sixth straight win overshadowed a memorable night for Baltimore’s Jonathan Villar, who became the fifth Orioles player to hit for the cycle and first since Felix Pie on Aug. 14, 2009. Villar tripled in the third inning, doubled in the fifth, homered in the sixth and dumped a single into right field off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth.
Tauchman delivered a bases-empty drive in the sixth inning and a tiebreaking solo shot off Paul Fry (1-4) in the eighth, his first career multihomer game. Austin Romine, Brett Gardner and Mike Ford also connected for the Yankees.
New York has hit 32 home runs at Camden Yards, a single-season record for most by a visiting team in one ballpark. The mark was previously held by the Milwaukee Braves, who hit 29 at Cincinnati’s Crosley Field in 1957.
The Yankees did it in only eight games, and they can add to the record on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Adam Ottavino (5-3) pitched the seventh inning for New York and Chapman worked the ninth for his 30th save.
BLUE JAYS 2, RAYS 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.– Rookie Bo Bichette homered and scored both runs, Jacob Waguespack pitched six impressive innings and Toronto ended Tampa Bay’s six-game winning streak.
Bichette opened the game with a double off Charlie Morton, the sixth straight game in which he has doubled. He hit his third home run leading off the third.
Waguespack (3-1) gave up four hits and a walk, striking out six in his fifth major league start. Derek Law got four outs for his second save in four days.
Morton (12-4) pitched seven innings, giving up two runs on seven hits while striking out nine.
The Rays put nine runners on base in the first seven innings, including three via Toronto errors. They were 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position and were shut out for the first time since June 28.
