|Wysłany: 12 Sie 2019 03:11 Temat postu: White Sox manager Rick Renteria has been talking with Yoan
|The talented second baseman sure looked locked in on Sunday.
Moncada broke out of a slump with a three-run homer and six RBIs Kyler Murray Jersey , and the White Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 10-3 for a split of their four-game series.
”Anytime you’re going through a rough moment, you have doubts, you have questions,” Moncada said through an interpreter. ”But when you keep working hard, you can answer those questions.
”I keep grinding and just working hard.”
Daniel Palka and Yolmer Sanchez also connected for the White Sox, who had lost nine of 10. Carlos Rodon (1-2) pitched a season-high eight innings in his fourth start after missing the beginning of the year while recovering from shoulder surgery last September.
Moncada, who hit .183 over the previous 35 games, gave the White Sox a 3-2 lead with a three-run double in the fifth. Moncada then scored on Avisail Garcia’s single, and Jose Abreu added another RBI single.
Palka, Sanchez and Moncada all went deep in the sixth. Moncada belted a three-run drive for his 10th homer, making it 10-2 Chicago.
”I think he’s probably giving a little bit of a wakeup call to himself in terms of where he sees himself http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-byron-murphy-jersey ,” Renteria said. ”I think he’s also learned that truly you have to take every single pitch of a game into consideration because they all matter.
”I think he’s starting to realize that maybe I have to have a little bit more focus and intensity.”
Oakland set a modern major league record when Mark Canha hit a drive to left on Rodon’s first pitch of the fifth, extending the A’s streak to 25 straight road games with a homer. Canha also opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the second.
A’s right-hander Paul Blackburn (1-2) allowed six runs and eight hits in five-plus innings. He permitted only one baserunner through the first four, but got into trouble with two out in the fifth.
The rally started with back-to-back singles by Omar Narvaez and Leury Garcia, and then Blackburn hit ninth hitter Adam Engel with a pitch.
”Garcia didn’t look very good on a couple changeups I threw. I threw another one that was a little up and he kind of flipped it over there (right field),” Blackburn said. ”Then I hit (Engel), and it was kind of downhill from there.”
Rodon allowed two runs and seven hits. The eight innings matched his career high.
”It was good to go eight and just be ahead of guys,” Rodon said. ”There’s up and down days when you go through shoulder surgery or any kind of surgery for a player. You just have to work through it, try to make your way back.”
Well-traveled right-hander Edwin Jackson will be activated on Monday and start for Oakland at Detroit.
The A’s will become his 13th major league team, which ties retired right-hander Octavio Dotel for the major league record. The 34-year-old went 0-1 with a 4.02 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Nashville. He owns a 98-120 major league record and 4.67 ERA in 15 seasons.
”I’m probably the only guy in the clubhouse that has never met him, but I did earlier today,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said.
Outfielder Nick Martini will be sent to Triple-A Nashville to open a spot for Jackson on the roster.
Melvin said the team celebrated Canha’s record-setting home run in the dugout.
”It’s nice to hang your hat on Andy Isabella Jersey , but it certainly would have been a little better if we had won the game,” Melvin said.
The previous record was set by the Orioles in 1996.
Athletics: RHP Daniel Mengden (sprained right foot) returned to the Bay Area to consult with team physicians. The injury is not believed to be related to his previous right foot injuries. ”We’ll probably know a little bit more in the next couple of days,” Melvin said. … INF Matt Chapman (right hand contusion) could have a cortisone shot in the wrist area on Monday and will sit out the Tigers series. He had an injection in his thumb last Monday. The hope is the trouble spot has been localized and he’ll be available on the next homestand.
White Sox: RHP prospect Dane Dunning left his start Saturday for Double-A Birmingham with right elbow soreness, Renteria said. He will undergo an MRI.
Athletics: Jackson will make his A’s debut in the opener of a four-game series in Detroit. RHP Jordan Zimmermann (2-0, 4.95 ERA) goes for the Tigers.
White Sox: Following an off day, the White Sox begin a three-game set against visiting Minnesota on Tuesday. RHP Reynaldo Lopez (2-5, 3.59 ERA) opposes Twins RHP Lance Lynn (5-5, 4.64 ERA) in the opener.
DETROIT (AP)Matthew Stafford and Jim Caldwell could offer no easy solutions to the problem that won’t go away for the Detroit Lions. Another slow start forced the Lions to try to come from behind Thursday, and they fell short in a 30-23 loss to Minnesota that likely ended Detroit’s chances of winning the NFC North. The Lions trailed 13-0 early, and although they’ve spent much of the past two seasons pulling off fourth-quarter comebacks, they weren’t up to the task this time. Afterward Brian Burns Jersey , Stafford and Caldwell were asked about Detroit’s poor starts and what can be done about them. ”Nothing other than what I know,” said Caldwell, in his fourth season as the team’s coach. ”It’s just hard work. Just keep working at it.” The Lions have been outscored 73-30 in the first quarter this season and 68-57 in the third. They’ve outscored opponents 106-79 in the second and 101-44 in the fourth. That pattern continued in their Thanksgiving matchup with the Vikings. Detroit wasted solid field position after the opening kickoff, going three-and-out and then punting. Minnesota promptly drove 80 yards in 14 plays, scoring the opening touchdown on a 1-yard pass when the Lions had only 10 men on the field. Then Detroit turned the ball over on a fumbled exchange between Stafford and Ameer Abdullah. The Vikings quickly added another TD to make it 13-0. ”I think we’ve just got to execute better,” Stafford said. ”Obviously, we had the turnover that wasn’t good there early. We got to find a way to avoid that and just as a team, we got to start a little faster.” The Lions can still make the playoffs, but in Thursday’s loss, two of their biggest problems – slow starts and a poor running game – were crucial. Detroit didn’t come any closer to solving either. The Lions weren’t sharp at the beginning of the game, and they were just as bad coming out of the locker room to start the second half. Minnesota drove 75 yards on four running plays http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/greg-little-jersey-authentic , scoring a touchdown that made it 27-10 early in the third quarter. ”They just took it right down the field,” Caldwell said. ”Up until then, I thought our guys had been doing a pretty decent job of getting (them) stopped in that first half, but that one was tough. It didn’t knock us out of it, but nevertheless it made things more difficult.” Stafford seems well on his way to throwing for over 4,000 yards again, but he’s done some of his best work when his team has been behind, and sometimes that’s not enough. When the Lions have tried to establish the run early, it hasn’t worked. On Thursday, Detroit elected to receive after winning the coin toss, and Stafford threw on two of the first three offensive plays – but those completions netted only 2 and 4 yards Will Grier Jersey , and the Lions were unable to make a first down. Then the defense allowed three third-down conversions on Minnesota’s long drive. Stafford seemed tired of all the talk about slow starts. He said if the Lions had played well at the beginning of the game and then poorly for the rest of it, there would have been questions about that. True enough, but if the Lions are going to take another step toward becoming an elite team, they’ll need to play more consistently for 60 minutes a game – and right now their biggest deficiency is at the start. ”We didn’t win the game. We didn’t play well enough to win,” Stafford said. ”Didn’t make enough plays. Would love to start fast early and we didn’t, but we fought tooth and nail to get back in.” —
