Jake Odorizzi only went 5 and 13 innings today, but was dominant while he was out there. He allowed just 1 walk, 1 hit and struck out 9 batters with his assortment of 2-seam fastballs and breaking pitches.

Most of Jake’s run support came in the 3rd inning. Byron Buxton singled, and made his way to 3rd base with 1 out. Max Kepler doubled, scoring Buxton. A walk and a strikeout later, Eddie Rosario clobbered his 16th homer, driving in 3 runs to make the score 4-0.

Not much happened in innings 4-6, so let’s fast forward to the 7th. With 2 on and 2 out, Max Kepler hit a blast to deep center against LHP Tyler Osich, driving in 3 more runs to make the score 7-0.

The White Sox did threaten in the 7th inning, but Trevor May and Taylor Rogers slammed the door shut (after Trevor May opened the door, initially).

Tyler Duffey pitched a scoreless 8th inning, striking out Jose Abreu with 2 runners on. Duffey proceeded to toss a scoreless 9th, picking up 6 strikeouts in his two innings. That completes the sweep of the White Sox, and the Twins will welcome the Brewers to town next.
