| No Comments | No TrackBacks

WHITE SOX 4, TEAM USA 4

Fit to be tied: Facing a lineup that included Jimmy Rollins, Brandon Phillips, Ryan Braun, Joe Mauer, David Wright, Giancarlo Stanton, Adam Jones and Ben Zobrist, the Sox got 2 2/3 scoreless innings from Gavin Floyd in his first appearance of the spring, 1 1/3 scoreless from Hector Santiago and runless frames from Matt Thornton, Nate Jones and Dylan Axelrod. It was the third tie of the spring for the Sox (5-3-3).
"They have a great lineup,'' Floyd said. "I think it's going to be exciting for the WBC. Pitching against them in your first start you go ... not too many weak spots in that lineup. No matter who's in there you try to keep it normal and make pitches.''

37 candles, 3 hits: Paul Konerko was 3-for-3 with an RBI single and run scored on his 37th birthday. Gordon Beckham turned the same trick, going 3-for-3 with an RBI and run scored.

Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo and Dewayne Wise doubled.

On deck: Except for Chris Sale, who is scheduled to pitch a bullpen session, most of the Sox will enjoy an off day. The Sox go to Mesa on Thursday to play the Cubs. Left-hander Jose Quintana will make his second start and against Carlos
Villaneuva.
