White Sox beat Astros 3-2 in 11 innings
(CHICAGO) – The Houston Astros came into Chicago hoping to break one of their few slumps this season in a three-game series with the American League's worst team. Instead, they leave the Windy City reeling after being swept by the White Sox. Meanwhile, White Sox fans got a glimpse of a potential South Side superstar who had his first big moments for the team. Rookie Yoan Moncada homered to tie the game in the ninth inning and then drove in the game-winner with a single in the 11th to lead the White Sox to 3-2 win Thursday night, completing an improbable series sweep of the AL's best team. The top White Sox prospect said his 11th inning single was the first walk-off hit he's had at any level. David Holmberg (2-3) got the last out of the 11th to earn the win. Carlos Rodon threw his third straight quality start without earning a win. Rodon, a left-hander, tied a career-high with eight innings pitched, striking out four and allowing two runs on nine hits. Jake Petricka, Tyler Clippard, Brad Goldberg and Holmberg combined to hold the Astros scoreless over the last three innings. Houston has now lost seven of their last nine games.
