As heard on WHOW, Carlos Rodon pitched six strong innings and the Chicago White Sox took advantage of sloppy play by the Minnesota Twins to win 4-1 on a rainy Tuesday night.

 

Catcher Zack Collins, making the start after Yasmani Grandal went on the injured list earlier in the day with a torn tendon in his left knee, had a two-run single in the second inning after two walks and two errors by the Twins.

 

Headed to his first All-Star game next week, Rodon (7-3) allowed one run on seven hits. He struck out eight and didn't walk a batter as Chicago snapped a three-game losing streak.

 

Michael Kopech pitched a scoreless seventh and Liam Hendriks pitched the fin

al two innings for his 22nd save.

Collins' single in the second was the only hit Chicago would put up in seven innings against Minnesota starter Jose Berrios (7-3). Just one of the runs was earned against Berrios, who struck out 10 batters.

 

Lance Lynn (8-3, 2.02 ERA) starts the afternoon series finale for Chicago on Wednesday. Minnesota will activate RHP Michael Pineda (3-4, 3.70) from the injured list to start. Pineda has been out since June 13 with right elbow inflammation. Lynn is 1-0 with two earned runs allowed in 11 innings against the Twins this season.
