The Chicago White Sox played a doubleheader against the Cleveland Guardians on Saturday. The first game was a recovery from a rainout on May 11. The South Siders were looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss in the first game of the four-game series. They fell 8-2 to the Guardians on Friday.

game 1

Johnny Cueto hit the bump for his first start in the second half in the afternoon contest. Cueto once again proved to be as reliable as he has been all year. The right-hander delivered his 10th quality start of his 12 starts in 2022. He allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits with one walk and, interestingly, did not strike out. He only needed 93 pitches to complete his seven innings. The only blemish on the day came in the fifth inning when he was tagged out for all four runs.

Cueto put up the first two runners when he walked Nolan Jones and hit Austin Hedges. Steven Kwan doubled to left field to score Jones. Amed Rosario had two runs in the next at bat when he singled to right field. He reached third place after Gavin Sheets’ throwing error. José Ramírez hit a sacrifice fly and Cleveland was out with a 4-1 lead.

The White Sox came back to tie for seventh with three runs. Leury Garcia reached on fielder’s choice with two outs and drove home on a double by Josh Harrison. Yoan Moncada followed with a deep left turn to score Harrison. Andrew Vaughn’s base hit in the next at-bat scored Moncada.

The Pale Hose had a chance to open the game with the bases loaded, but Gavin Sheets struck out on a swing.

He didn’t stay tied for long. Things quickly got complicated for closer Liam Hendricks in the top of the ninth inning. Nolan Jones led off the inning with a double to right field. Josh Naylor pinch hit for Hedges and wasted no time driving in the go-ahead run. Alex Call ran for Naylor and advanced to second on the sacrifice of Myles Straw. Steven Kwan singled to left center to score Call and moved to third on Rosario’s hit. Jose Ramirez once again drove in the run from third with a sacrifice fly to put the Guardians ahead by three. The Sox quickly went 1-2-3 to end the game.

game 2

The Sox looked to split the doubleheader and avoid their third straight loss. Lance Lynn pitched like the 2021 version of himself and was supported by a pair of RBIs from Yoan Moncada and a solo homer from Eloy Jimenez.

Lynn pitched six strong innings, allowing only three hits and one walk. He struck out six and needed just 87 pitches to keep the Guardians scoreless. Lynn’s night ended and the Red Sox bullpen took control with a 3-0 lead on a bases-loaded third-inning walk by Yoan Moncada, who also doubled off Tim Anderson in the fifth inning for the second race. Eloy Jimenez hit his second home run since returning from the disabled list to give the White Sox a safe run in the sixth.

The bullpen had another tough game. José Ruiz quickly put a runner on second after Andrés Giménez hit an infield single and advanced on Ruiz’s wild pitch. Ernie Clement singled to score Gimenez. Myles Straw tripled to drive in Clement and scored on Steven Kwan’s single. Amed Rosario hit the second triple of the inning to score Kwan and put the Guardians ahead 4-3.

White Sox steal one

The Pale Hose loaded the bases in the eighth after Vaughn doubled and Abreu and Grandal walked off Bryan Shaw.

AJ Pollock singled to left field to score past Abreu and Vaughn and regain the lead at 5-4. It turned out to be the final score, as Matt Foster was able to walk off a lead off the ninth inning and record the save.

grades

Yasmani Grandal collected three hits in his second game since returning from the disabled list.

The White Sox signed Noah Schultz, their first-round pick (26th overall), to a minor league contract with a $2.8 million signing bonus.
