Leuri Garcia decides RBI singles in ninth for White Sox

SAN FRANCISCO ( Associated Press) – Leuri Garcia and the rest of his Chicago teammates were looking to make good on it after Lance Lynn gave his best start to the season.

Garcia broke a scoreless game on an RBI single with two outs in the top of the ninth, and the White Sox beat the San Francisco Giants 1-0 on Friday night.

“Bring people in,” Garcia said of his plan.

And back up Lynn’s strong outing: the right-hander scored five runs and six runs in two overs.

“He’s doing great,” Garcia said. “Tonight was one of the best games for him, everyone saw him. He’s one of those guys who always competes.”

Gavin Sheets started the rally when he was hit by a one-off fielding error by pitcher Camilo Doval (2-4). AJ Pollock hit a single with two outs before going to the right from Garcia’s deciding line drive.

Andrew Vaughan hit a two-out double for the White Sox against Dominic Lyon in the eighth, which prompted an innings-end groundout from Louis Robert.

Tanner Banks (1-0) finished eighth for the win as Chicago faced San Francisco for the first time since 2017. Kendall Graveman finished for his fourth defense as the White Sox won just the third time in nine games.

Alex Cobb and Lynn each allowed three hits as they waited for the offense to arrive on a night when the temperature of the first pitch was 56 degrees colder and the seagulls flew over McCove Cove in the late inning because of the haze. Walked right over the outfield.

Cobb played five shutout innings with three strikeouts and one walk.

The Giants, who fell 7-4 in interleague play, missed a base-loaded opportunity in the opening innings.

“I thought we had a really good plan and approach at first and something that I think we’re working on consistently, it’s just another big bat that would change the course of an innings and a game. And the big innings has been important to us for so long and we just don’t have that,” said manager Gabe Kapler. “There’s really nothing to do any differently.”

Defending NL West champion San Francisco, who won a franchise-record 107 games last season, went on to win 13-13 in June.

Giants center fielder Mike Yastrzemsky continued his stretch of stellar defense when he made a jump over the wall in left-center to rob Yoan Moncada of a potential extra-base hit that would propel him from fifth.

what a number

Hall of Fame White Sox captain Tony La Russa first scored against Kapler – the major league record for La Russa, the 155th different opposing manager, according to Elias.

cuto’s back

Right-hander Johnny Cuto returned to San Francisco with the White Sox after spending six seasons with the Giants.

Cueto smiled, patted his hat and waved when shown on the big screen,

“He’s very smart. As a pitcher, he knows how to go through a lineup, he’s a worker,” La Russa said. “Personality, people like to be around him and he likes to contribute to what he knows. He could have been better for us.”

instructor room

White Sox: Aloy Jimenez, working back from surgery for a torn hamstring tendon at the back of his right knee, continues to do more in his rehab after he had to back down due to some pain. “He’s improving,” La Russa said. “You have to be really careful. He had surgery, he had something removed. He definitely doesn’t want to get hurt again so he’s got to be careful with it, we’re encouraging him to be careful.” So he is growing slowly and no one is rushing him.”

GIANTS: RHP Anthony Descalfani went on a 15-day injured list with a swelling of his right ankle, retroactive to Tuesday. Surgery may still be necessary and Kapler said discussions are ongoing about “next steps.” “There’s concern,” Kapler said. … Kapler expects SS Brandon Crawford to come out of IL when he is eligible on Monday after being sidelined with a swelling in his left knee.

roster move

Giants recalled INF Jason Vosler from Triple-A Sacramento.


White Sox RHP Dylan Siege (6-3, 2.56 ERA) makes his sixth road start of the season in the middle game of the series and ends up playing seven scoreless innings with a career-best 13 strikes in a win against Baltimore.

The Giants sent RHP Logan Webb (7-2, 3.04) to the mound on Saturday and sought a decision to win a third straight.
