, Carlos Rodon continued his torrid stretch with six strong innings and the White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 7-3 on Wednesday.Rodon’s performance came one day after prized prospect Michael Kopech pitched two scoreless innings in his big league debut. Together, they project to be the cornerstones of a young rotation on the come.“Yeah, it’s definitely fun to see some new faces,” said Rodon, who allowed three hits and three walks and struck out five. “Last night was pretty exciting, pretty loud out there — the loudest it has been in awhile.”“It’s extremely exciting,” said bench coach Joe McEwing, who filled in for Manager Rick Renteria for the third straight game. “When you have pitchers that have plus-plus stuff, and even if they’re having a tough outing, they’re able to fight through it because of their stuff … As they continue to grow, they’ll continue to get to that level.”Nicky Delmonico and Tim Anderson also homered off Twins starter Kyle Gibson (7-10), helping send him to only his second loss in seven career decisions at Guaranteed Rate Field.Chicago won for the sixth time in eight games.“We’ve picked it up offensively and our pitching has been really good,” said Delmonico, who homered in four of the last six games. “We’ve been playing good defense, so it’s all clicking right now.”The White Sox sent 11 batters to the plate against Gibson and Gabriel Moya in the fifth to snap a 2-2 tie.Omar Narvaez drew a walk before Engel hit an 0-2 fastball over the left-field fence. Yolmer Sanchez followed with a walk and advanced to second on Avisail Garcia’s one-out single. Sanchez scored when second baseman Logan Forsythe couldn’t handle Daniel Palka’s hard grounder that was ruled an error. Delmonico was walked intentionally, and Matt Davidson hit a two-run single that knocked Gibson out of the game. The right-hander gave up seven runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings.“In that situation, I had (Engel) 0-2, but I was really thinking I had a chance to get a double play there and get out of trouble pretty quickly,” Gibson said. “I just threw one too many sinkers in.”Rodon (5-3) allowed four of the first five batters to reach base before he settled down. He is 5-1 with a 2.31 ERA over his last 10 starts.Xavier Cedeno, Juan Minaya and Hector Santiago combined for three innings of one-run relief.Forsythe led off the game with a walk and, one out later, Jorge Polanco homered into the left-field bleachers, the first off Rodon in 26 innings. He didn’t allow another hit until Forsythe’s infield single with one out in the fifth.Chicago pulled even on solo homers by Delmonico in the second and Anderson in the fourth. Anderson’s 17th matched his career high of a year ago.Forsythe’s single off Minaya in the seventh, his third of the game, scored the final run.SOX TRADE AVILANThe White Sox acquired RHP Felix Paulino from Philadelphia for LHP Luis Avilan, whose 58 relief appearances led the staff. Avilan had a 2-1 record and 3.86 ERA. Paulino went 4-4 with a 3.91 ERA in 31 games between Single-A Clearwater and Double-A Reading. RHP Ryan Burr and INF Jose Rondon were brought up from Triple-A Charlotte.STILL THE ONEINF Joe Mauer was given the day off and remained one hit behind Rod Carew (2,085) and second place on the all-time franchise list.

His name has been mentioned prominently in regard to the Aug. 31 waivers trade deadline. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Enrique Hernandez is ready to build on his breakout season last year for the Los Angeles Dodgers.After five years in the big leagues, the late-blooming utility player is coming off his best campaign, setting career highs in hits (103), RBI (52), home runs (21), and walks (50). During offseason workouts at Dodger Stadium with returning hitting strategist Brant Brown and new hitting coach Robert Van Scoyoc, Hernandez made adjustments to more efficiently and prominently use his lower half, building momentum into spring training.On Wednesday night, he hit a three-run homer against the White Sox to improve his spring training home run total to a team-leading three. Through Wednesday, his 11 RBIs were tied for third in all of MLB spring training; his .750 slugging percentage was fourth, and his .375 batting average tied for fifth.While spring training statistics do not count, they can increase momentum and build confidence.“I’m seeing the ball pretty good, getting some results here and there, so the year is going pretty well so far,” Hernandez said.Listed generously at 5-foot-11, the 192-pounders’ commitment to strength and conditioning have helped him make significant strides 10 years into a pro career that began in 2009, when the Houston Astros selected him in the sixth round of the amateur draft out of American Military Academy in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico.The son of a Pittsburgh Pirates scout who also served as his coach, Hernandez دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, then 17, dominated his native Puerto Rico and challenged himself by playing travel ball internationally in Venezuela and the Dominican Republic.At age 21, he broke into double digits in home runs with 13. The following year, 2014, at the Triple-A level, he began to play multiple positions.“I grew up playing shortstop, and I believe that if you can play shortstop, you can play anywhere,” Hernandez said. “I also played a little bit of second base for a year or two, but mostly shortstop, and then it wasn’t until Triple-A that I started playing everywhere, by necessity.”That fielding versatility in 2014, led to his major league debut on July 1. At the end of the month, he was traded to the Marlins. A few months later, on Dec. 11, he was dealt to the Dodgers, along with catcher Austin Barnes, among others.In a growing era of versatility, Hernandez is among the most versatile. He played six positions in 2015 and 2016, seven in 2017 and eight last season.“There’s the skill set part of it, where as a baseball player he has a lot of confidence that no matter where we put him, he feels like he’s the best option,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Anywhere he would play, I think he has that potential to be an elite defender. But just for us how it has been, we’ve moved him around the diamond to give runways for other people. But also, there’s just a confidence he has with the glove. “Last season, Hernandez played 63 games in center field دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, 41 at second base, 22 at shortstop, 19 in right field, 18 in left field, nine at third base, eight at first base and his MLB pitching debut, in which he entered a tied, extra-inning game, and surrendered a three-run home run.Embracing his versatility, Hernandez calls himself “super utility for the Los Angeles Dodgers” on his Instagram and Twitter accounts.He is popular among fans for his cancer research fund-raising efforts, broad communication skills — he speaks fluently in English and Spanish — and “every man size”.In the clubhouse, he radiates positivity, sharing a wry wit with teammates.When he steps into the batters’ box, he’s stone-cold serious with Popeye-style power.“He’s very strong,” Roberts said. “And the more he stays in the strike zone, the production and the power will be there.”Like many of his teammates, Hernandez’ offensive production fizzled in the 2018 postseason. He hit .167 against Atlanta in the NLDS, .071 versus Milwaukee in the NLCS, including eight strikeouts, and .133 in the World Series loss to the Red Sox with four strikeouts.That experience fuels his fast spring training start.Looking no further for motivation, he said, “I’m in the big leagues, that’s good enough motivation, and obviously, I’m motivated by winning.”
