White Sox take a hard beating in Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – The White Sox were given a day to travel and rest up for the Brewers game in Milwaukee and brought out Lucas Giolito to throw out the first pitch. In the bottom of the 1st inning the Brewers were caught off guard when a ball got grounded to White Sox second baseman Leury Garcia who tossed it to White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson to pick up the double play. In the bottom of the 2nd the White Sox pick up another double play with White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada and Garcia. In the bottom of the 4th inning with no runs on the scoreboard, Brewer’s batter Rowdy Tellez hit an RBI single that gave the Brewers a lead on the White Sox. At the end of the 4th the Brewers had a slight lead on the White Sox 1-0. Two more innings went by with both teams playing good defense and throwing allusive balls from the mound.
White Sox Struggle to Find Right Pitcher
In the bottom of the 7th inning White Sox pitcher Aaron Bummer relieved Giolito after 91 pitches. Bummer then walked both Brewers batters, Willy Adams and Christian Yelich. After Yelich’s walk, Brewer’s batter Avisail Garcia grounded an out and an RBI that slightly extended the lead over the White Sox. Soon after Bummer was taken off the mound and replaced with White Sox pitcher Ryan Burr. Burr then walked both Brewers batters, Luis Urias and Tellez which resulted in walking in Willy Adames for another run. White Sox manager Toney La Russa was ejected by the Homeplate umpire right after for disagreeing with the umpire’s call. After La Russa was ejected and with bases loaded, Brewer’s batter Tyrone Taylor hit a grand slam to left field that brought the score to 7-0. In the top of the 8th White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson was ejected from the game by the Homeplate umpire. White Sox batter Andrew Vaughn then crushed a solo homer to center field.
