After storming out to the season, the White Sox bats seem to have gone quiet. Over their three game set against the Angels, the Sox scored just seven runs.
Sunday’s series finale against the Angels was notable for the Sox offensive failures. The Sox managed to leave sixteen men on base total, and scored just two runs off of seven hits given up by Dan Haren over his 6.1 innings pitched. The top three of the Sox lineup — Juan Pierre, Adam Dunn, and Gordon Beckham — all went hitless on the night. This continues the struggles of Adam Dunn since returning from his appendectomy. Dunn is hitting just .182 over the last week, with two home runs.
With the sweep, the Sox have now lost four straight games, and end their home series with a disappointing 4-6 record. They’ll now take to the road again, looking to turn things around against still struggling Tampa Bay, as well as Detroit and New York.
The White Sox will be in Tampa on Monday evening. First pitch in that game is at 5:40 P.M., CDT.
