White Sox Vs. Astros Final Score: Chicago Wraps Up Spring Training With A Win

Chis Sale will be making the transition from a reliever to a starter this season as the Chicago White Sox attempt to replace longtime lefty mainstay Mark Buehrle in the starting rotation. Sale got the nod in the Sox's final Spring Training game before Opening Day against the Rangers on Friday, and he performed well in a 5-1 Chicago victory.

Sale improved to 2-1 in the spring by striking out six four in four innings. The lanky lefty was charged with one earned run, three hits and two walks.

The middle of the order powered the Sox offensively, which certainly has to be considered a good sign heading into the season. Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko hit consecutive home runs to lead off the fifth inning. Outfielder Alejandro De Aza also added a bases-loaded single in the second inning.
