White Sox Split Doubleheader with Phillies

In games heard on WHOW, Josh Harrison homered among his three hits and drove in four runs, and four relievers combined for four perfect innings as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Chicago White Sox 7-4 on Tuesday in the first game of a doubleheader.


Harrison is now 5 for 10 after being mired in a 2-for-12 slump as the Phillies won their second consecutive game. The White Sox lost for the fifth time in their last six.


Nick Castellanos and Harrison had three hits apiece to lead the Phillies' 14-hit attack. Philadelphia has totaled 37 hits in its last two games.


Phillies shortstop Bryson Stott singled to start the game and extend his hitting streak to 17 games, surpassing the franchise record of 16 to start the season set by Puddin’ Head Jones in 1950.


The White Sox got six consecutive hits off Zack Wheeler (1-1) to start the bottom of the third and pull within one. Luis Robert Jr. hit a two-run double, and Andrew Vaughn followed with a two-run single. But Wheeler stranded Vaughn at third and left runners in scoring position in each of the next two innings to qualify for the win.


Chicago starter Lance Lynn (0-2) allowed a season-high 10 hits and was pulled after striking out Trea Turner on his 107th pitch in the sixth. Jimmy Lambert got Lynn out of a jam by striking out Brandon Marsh with runners on first and second to end the inning, but Harrison tagged him with his first homer in the seventh.


Lucas Giolito and three relievers combined on a one-hitter, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 on Tuesday night to split a doubleheader.


Brandon Marsh had Philadelphia's only hit, an opposite-field double to left on reliever Aaron Bummer's first pitch of the eighth inning.


Giolito was pulled after throwing 102 pitches in six innings. He struck out seven, walked one and hit a batter. Kendall Graveman retired the side on eight pitches in the seventh, Bummer got two outs in the eighth and Reynaldo Lopez set down the last four batters, striking out three, to earn his third save.


Jake Burger hit his fourth homer in five games, a three-run shot to left field in the first inning off left-hander Bailey Falter (1-2) that was 118.2 mph off the bat. That was more than enough for Giolito.


Stott had his streak 17-game hitting streak snapped in the nightcap.


Yoan Moncada (low back soreness) might not be ready to be activated from the 10-day injured list when he's eligible Friday, manager Pedro Grifol indicated. 


RHP Joe Kelly (groin) threw a bullpen session Monday. He is eligible to return Monday. 


SS Tim Anderson (left knee strain) performed light jogging but is at least two weeks away from returning.


Philadelphia's Taijuan Walker (1-1, 4.20 ERA) will oppose Mike Clevinger (2-0, 2.20) in Wednesday’s series finale.
