Former Gamecock Pitcher Earns First Win in Major League Baseball

Jose Quintana

But none of those elements was present until it was too late on Monday night. Mariners starters have gone at least seven innings and allowed one run or fewer in three of their past four games. The trouble for the White Sox, though, is that four of those hits were doubles and two more were home runs. "We just wanted Tim to take a step back, take a breath, just regroup", said White Sox manager Rick Renteria, who added Anderson is expected back in the lineup on Monday. "I'm sure he'll think about that, but that's ok", Girardi said. I think he could be striking more batters out, especially with the action he can have on his circle change, but overall I'll take it.

"When you have to live in one area, that makes it easier for them to hit the ball".

"I am better, " Warren said.

"It was a good game except for that one inning". But that shouldn't take away from the rest of the outing.

Now he's made two solid starts, throwing six shutout innings on Monday night before giving up a three-run home run in the seventh.

BOSTON - Steven Wright threw six innings of three-run ball, and Boston scored three runs in the second to beat Tampa Bay. But he didn't have the same luck in the third. While the official scorer ruled it a hit, the play easily could have resulted in Abreu's third error. "Like you said, I am struggling right now, but I'm trying to find a way to get out of it". "I mean, that's the fair way, for me, to judge our players".

Aaron Hicks then grounded into a fielder's choice for what would have been the final out.

"No, because it's a small sample, " said Girardi, whose hitters are batting.213 (26-for-122) with runners in scoring position in the first 13 games, when asked if the paltry numbers were bothersome.

NY has some overachieving hitters this year as well.

Holliday put the Yankees ahead with a titanic three-run shot in a five-run third inning, and Aaron Judge added a two-run homer that chased Derek Holland (1-2) with the score 7-0 in the fifth. "Holland's really tough on left-handers", Girardi explained. It's just continued with guys that have given us distance.

The Yankees are not in a hurry to make a trade, but they should be in the mix for Quintana at the trade deadline, especially if the White Sox lowers their asking price.

"I believe it's going to change where they are going to start hitting with runners in scoring position".

The White Sox hit into double plays in the second and fourth innings against NY pitcher Jordan Montgomery and Cabrera and Abreu stranded a pair in the sixth. The Sox scored three in a hurry in the seventh, as Sanchez followed singles by Avisail Garcia and Matt Davidson with a no-doubt homer to left off Jordan Montgomery.
