White Sox Finally Beat Pavano

When the White Sox traded Edwin Jackson to the Toronto Blue Jays a few weeks ago they received in return veteran reliever Jason Frasor and prospect Zach Stewart. The thing about prospects is you never really know what you are going to get. If Saturday was any indication, the White Sox (54-58) got a steal.

Zach Stewart was very solid in his debut for the Sox Saturday. Stewart physically resembles Cub’s pitcher Jeff Samardzija, but on the mound resembled Mark Buehrle. The righty pitched to contact and worked quickly in leading his team to victory. Stewart went six and a third and allowed just one run on eight hits to improve his record to 1-1 on the season.

The game remained close through eight innings. Anytime the Twins (51-62) threatened Stewart made the right pitch to get out of the inning. In the ninth the Sox put a four spot on the board which put the game out of reach.

Carl Pavano pitched ok for the Twins but was the tough luck loser. Pavano went eight innings and allowed two runs, just one earned, on nine hits. The Twins veteran dropped to 6-9 on the season.

The Sox will go for the sweep Sunday afternoon in Minnesota.
