Jackson Takes No Hitter Into The Fifth

Edwin Jackson had a no-hit bid going into the fifth inning, though by then he had already given up two runs. Then, the dam broke and the Yankees scored six times to take an 8-0 lead and pretty much eliminate any hopes the lackluster White Sox offense had of making a comeback.

Over their eleven game road trip, the White Sox went just 3-8, with so many poor performances Thursday evening’s game seemed like a rerun. Jackson’s total line on the night was 4.0 innings pitched, with six runs on four hits and five walks. He struck out two.

The Yankees CC Sabathia had a much better night on the mound. He pitched seven innings giving up three runs, none of them earned. He yielded seven hits and a walk, with six strikeouts.

Ozzie Guillen also made news when it came out that Major League Baseball might discipline him for violating the league’s social media policy, which states that any social media activity must end at least thirty minutes prior to the start of a game. After being ejected during Wednesday’s game, Ozzie issued a few tweets about the ejection from the visiting clubhouse, a violation of the league policy as the game had not officially ended.

The White Sox return home on Friday night to host the Baltimore Orioles. First pitch in that game is at 7:10 P.M., CDT.

White Sox Go For Series Win Over Yankees

Edwin Jackson will look to bounce back against the New York Yankees on Thursday night as the White Sox go for a series win at Yankee Stadium.

Jackson had his worst start of the season at Detroit when he went only 5.2 innings while giving up eight runs (seven earned) on twelve hits. He also walked four and struck out three. Much of Jackson's problems at Comerica could be traced to his inability to throw his slider for strikes, which is typically his out pitch. Against the Yankees over his career, Jackson hasn't fared so well. He's 2-5 with a 4.83 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez have both hit Jackson pretty well in their careers. Jeter has a .355 average against Jackson with with a double, triple, and a home run, while Rodriguez has a .409 average and three doubles and three home runs.

Going for the Yankees will be CC Sabathia. The Yankees ace is off to a solid start on the season, at 1-1 with a 2.73 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. In his career against the White Sox, Sabathia is 16-4 with a 3.82 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. Though he has been slumping overall, Gordon Beckham has hit Sabathia well during his career. Beckham has a.364 average against Sabathia with two doubles.

The weather in New York is forecast to be partly cloudy with a low in the low 50s. First pitch is at 6:05 P.M., and the game will be televised on CSN.
