White Sox's Willy Garcia gets hit in first major league at-bat

Matt Davidson hits a three run home run during the first inning against the Indians at Progressive Field Thursday

He struck out four after lasting just 1 2/3 innings in a start at Chicago last week.

Matt Davidson's home run off Ryan Pressly in the seventh proved to be the game-winning hit.

Left-hander Dan Jennings (1-0) came in to get the victory in relief as Chicago won its third straight game.

The White Sox on April 14, 2017 will be an answer to baseball trivia question.

The Twins scored in the second on a double by Max Kepler, a passed ball and a run-scoring groundout by Jason Castro.

The Sox called up Willy Garcia from AAA Charlotte on Friday to replace left fielder Melky Cabrera, who is on the Paternity List.

Garcia will be making his big league debut when he takes the field this weekend.

Garcia also was a part of history, with the White Sox becoming the first team to start three players with the same last name in the outfield.

On Sept. 15, [1963], Felipe played all three outfield positions, and Matty and Jesus joined him in the outfield as late-inning substitutes. He'll try to build off this one in a start against the Indians at home next week.

OUR PICK: Santana threw six scoreless innings with four striekouts and two walks while allowing just two hits to improve to 2-0 in Sunday's win over the White Sox. Brian Dozier had two hits. And Todd Frazier, who missed two games in Cleveland with illness, is back in the lineup at designated hitter.

"The experience in and of itself, I hate to say it, unless you've lived it it's hard to describe", White Sox manager Rick Renteria said.

The start of the game was held up 36 minutes by rain. Steady showers fell again in the second and third innings, but the teams were able to keep playing.

The Chicago White Sox will do something Friday no team has ever done in Major League Baseball history.

Byron Buxton: Twins' uber prospect had an.088 average and 19 strikeouts in first nine games, on an early pace for 342 strikeouts for the season. He is hitting.081 with a league-leading 20 strikeouts. Buxton struck out swinging after that and went 0 for 3.

The Twins send RHP Ervin Santana (2-0, 0.69 ERA) to the mound to face White Sox LHP Jose Quintana (0-2, 6.17 ERA) in the second of a three-game series.
