| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Edwin Jackson struck out 13 batters in eight innings on Thursday, the most ever by a White Sox in a home opener, in a 5-1 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Jackson, getting almost all of his strikeouts with his slider, had at least one in each inning.

Jackson was relieved by Sergio Santos after throwing 120 pitches. Jackson (2-0) walked one and gave up four hits.

Alex Rios had a two-run double in the first inning against David Price and Paul Konerko singled in a run in the third. It gave Konerko an RBI in each of the Sox' first six games, a franchise record.
