ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Looks like the White Sox’ version of Kevin Arnold is finally maturing.
Starting pitcher John Danks threw seven scoreless innings on Sunday, dominating the Tampa Bay lineup in the process. The southpaw allowed just three hits, while fanning eight – one shy off of tying a career-high.
Danks, who just turned 23, has now thrown 14 2/3 scoreless innings, after he threw 7 2/3 scoreless innings against Oakland last week.
As far as the Jekyll and Hyde act that Danks pulled far too often from start to start last season, he has now thrown at least seven-plus innings in back-to-back outings for the first time in his career.
