American League Game Summary - Tampa Bay at Chicago



(Friday, April 26th)

Final Score: Chicago 5, Tampa Bay 4

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Tyler Greene hit a two-run homer and Hector Gimenez and Conor Gillaspie both added solo shots as the Chicago White Sox edged the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-4, in the second installment of a four-game set at U.S. Cellular Field.

Adam Dunn added a pair of hits and drove in a run for the White Sox, who have won three straight.

Chicago starter Jake Peavy (3-1) allowed three runs on six hits -- including two homers -- while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings. Addison Reed gave up one run in the ninth, but stranded a pair of baserunners to seal the win and record his eighth save of the season.

"Jake had a good game. He had a rough inning, but other than that he was real good," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Our guys kept plugging away though."

Matt Joyce and Evan Longoria homered for the Rays, losers in three of their last four. Kelly Johnson added an RBI.

"I think we have to capitalize on these close games. I think a lot of the good teams do. Usually, the teams that make the playoffs have a lot of moments when they win close games," Joyce said. "We still have a long way to go, but we will figure out how to win those games."

Roberto Hernandez (1-4) allowed all five Chicago runs on eight hits over six innings to absorb the loss.

Chicago scored three runs in the fifth inning to take a 4-3 lead. Hernandez hit a leadoff homer, the first of his career, to right field. After Jordan Danks grounded out, Alejandro De Aza ripped a single up the middle. Greene followed with a two-run shot to center field to put the hosts ahead.

Gillaspie added a solo shot in the sixth.

Jose Molina ripped a one-out double off the top of the wall in center field in the ninth inning. Reed was able to get Sam Fuld to pop out to Gimenez behind the plate, but Joyce followed with a line drive base hit to right to push Molina across. Ryan Roberts worked a two-out walk, but Reed struck out Ben Zobrist with a slider to end the game.

Joyce homered to right in the third to put the Rays ahead 1-0.

Longoria laced a homer to right-center field and Johnson added an RBI single in the fourth to give Tampa Bay a 3-0 lead.

Dunn ripped a base hit to right field in the home half to score Alex Rios to make it 3-1.

Game Notes

It took Gimenez 295 at-bats to get his first homer ... Rios had his fourth stolen base of the season ... White Sox starters have allowed just 14 earned runs over the last 57 1/3 innings pitched ... Longoria had six homers this season ... Zobrist is just 2-for-20 over his last five games.
