The Chicago White Sox lost to the Boston Red Sox 10-3 on Friday night at U.S. Cellular Field. The loss is their fourth in a row and leaves Chicago at 10-10 on the season, temporarily out of first place in the A.L. Central division.
John Danks lost his command in the sixth inning when he walked Adrian Gonzalez and then unleashed a wild pitch allowing Gonzalez to advance to second base. Danks went on to allow three singles, two walks and a double on the inning before being pulled for reliever Nate Jones. His final line was seven earned runs on 5.2 innings pitched.
A.J. Pierzynski had a strong game with a RBI double in the first and then he later scored in the third after an Alex Rios single. A Paul Konerko homerun to the bullpen in leftfield capped the scoring for the White Sox.
