Chicago White SoxSan Francisco Giants 3 – Chicago White Sox 7

Highlights:  Dylan Cease went five innings in his first win, and the Chicago White Sox beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3 on Wednesday afternoon. Luis Robert Jr. had three hits, scored twice and drove in a run. Gavin Sheets added three RBIs. Cease (1-0) kept the Giants in check despite some control issues after they smacked seven homers in Monday’s 12-3 romp. The AL Cy Young Award runner-up walked five, but struck out eight. The only hit and run he allowed was a solo homer to J.D. Davis in the second. Tim Anderson got tossed in the third. With a 1-2 count in the third inning, he was in the batter’s box but not settled into his stance when Webb began his delivery with 11 seconds left on the pitch clock. Anderson stepped out and was already walking toward the home dugout when Webb threw strike three down the middle. It was unclear if Anderson tried to call timeout. Read more at:  (AP)
