The Chicago White Sox are trailing 9-4 to the Houston Astros after seven innings of play on Sunday afternoon. Phil Humber once again struggled on the mound for the White Sox, his latest poor outing since throwing the 20th perfect game in MLB history.
Lasting just 5.1 innings, Humber allowed six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks. He did manage to strike out nine hitters, but he made numerous mistakes in allowing three crucial home runs, a persisting problem for the right-hander.
The White Sox were leading 3-2 early in the game, but the Astros exploded for a combined seven runs over the fifth and sixth innings. Adam Dunn's resurgence continues, though, as he hit his 20th homer of the season in the sixth inning.
