Gonzalez pitches 6 scoreless, White Sox hold off Rangers 3-2
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) --- Miguel Gonzalez escaped early trouble and pitched six
scoreless innings, leading the Chicago White Sox over the Texas Rangers 3-2
Texas dropped 2 games behind the Twins and the Angels for the AL's second
wild-card spot. The Rangers finished a 10-game homestand 7-3, but split the
four-game series against Chicago.
Gonzalez (7-10) pitched out of one-out, bases-loaded jams in both the second
and third innings. After allowing singles to the first two batters in the
fourth, Gonzalez retired the last nine batters he faced.
Juan Minaya recorded his second save, both in the last three games, despite
giving up Rougned Odor's two-run homer with two outs in the ninth.
Chicago capitalized on the Rangers' stranding runners by scoring all three runs
in the fourth inning against A.J. Griffin (6-4).
