Once the Chicago White Sox got started [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/...ke-mcglinchey-jersey]http:///...ke-mcglinchey-jersey[/url] , Yolmer Sanchez wouldn’t be stopped. Sanchez matched a career high with four RBIs, Avisail Garcia hit his first homer since returning from the disabled list last week and the White Sox came back to beat the Minnesota Twins 8-4 on Tuesday night. Yoan Moncada drove in a run with a triple and scored as the White Sox won for the third time in four games following an eight-game losing streak. Reynaldo Lopez (3-5) lasted 6 1/3 innings for the win in a contest that began after a delay of 1 hour, 48 minutes because of heavy rain. Sanchez is hitting .258 on the season, but is 17 for 55 with runners in scoring position. He drove in three runs on a pair bases-loaded singles and a fourth with a groundout. ”I feel good with runners in scoring position,” Sanchez said. ”I don’t try to do too much, I try to put the ball in play and put a good swing (on the ball).” Lopez yielded four runs and six hits before four Chicago relievers combined for 2 2/3 hitless innings. The 24-year-old right-hander rebounded from a lopsided loss at Cleveland last week when he allowed the first five of the Indians’ 12 runs. ”He ground out the innings that he gave us,” manager Rick Renteria said. ”He continued to show some calm out there.” Ehire Adrianza hit a solo shot and drove in two runs, and Brian Dozier also went deep for Minnesota. Minnesota’s Lance Lynn (5-6) seemed to be cruising with a 4-2 lead in a seventh straight solid start, but slipped on the wet grass while fielding Matt Davidson’s soft grounder leading off the bottom of sixth. Leury Garcia singled off Lynn’s glove and Kevan Smith followed with another hit to load the bases, prompting manager Paul Molitor to bring in reliever Ryan Pressly. ”It was a weird inning,” Lynn said. ”I don’t know how to explain it. I should have made both plays. ”They capitalized when they had a chance. It was all on me.” Pressly walked Tim Anderson to force in a run. Sanchez put the White Sox ahead for the first time when he lined a single off Taylor Rogers with two outs that drove in two. Lynn allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits through five-plus innings. The 31-year-old right-hander struck out eight and walked one. Dozier’s 11th homer, on a towering fly that barely cleared the left-field fence, put the Twins ahead 1-0 in the second. Adrianza’s drive to straightaway center on the first pitch of the third made it 2-0. The White Sox tied it at 2 in the bottom of the inning. Adam Engel reached on Adrianza’s throwing error [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/...-dante-pettis-jersey]http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dante-pettis-jersey[/url] , then scored on Moncada’s triple to the right-center wall. Moncada came home on Sanchez’s groundout. Minnesota moved back ahead 4-2 in the fifth. Mitch Garver, Jake Cave and Adrianza opened the inning with sharp singles. Joe Mauer settled for a sac fly as Garcia made a nifty running grab of his liner to the warning track in right center. After Chicago took a 5-4 lead in the sixth, Garcia hit his second homer of the season – and first since April 3 – in the seventh. Sanchez singled in another run as the White Sox scored twice in the eighth. SPECIAL K Lynn recorded the 1,000th strikeout of his career when he fanned Jose Abreu in the fifth. THEIR KIND OF TOWN The Twins began a run of six straight games in Chicago. Their three-game series against the White Sox will be followed by a three-game set at Wrigley Field against the crosstown Cubs. TWINS’ ROSTER MOVE The Twins recalled Cave for the third time this season from Triple-A Rochester before Tuesday’s game and started him in right. He took the roster spot of Ryan LaMarre, who was sent down on Sunday. TRAINER’S ROOM Twins: Two-time All-Star RHP Ervin Santana (right middle finger surgery) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Class A Fort Myers on Saturday after throwing 60 pitches of live batting practice on Monday. Santana’s recovery from Feb. 6 surgery has been slower than expected. The right-hander, 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA last season, made two rehab starts in May before being shut down. White Sox: RHP Dylan Covey (right hip soreness), who was pulled with no outs in the fifth inning in his last start on Saturday against Oakland, said he felt fine after throwing a bullpen session on Tuesday. Manager Rick Renteria expects Covey to make his next scheduled start, on Friday at Texas. . Garcia collided with Moncada near the right-field line as Garcia caught Eddie Rosario’s pop in the first. Both players seemed stunned, but were checked and remained in the game. UP NEXT Twins RHP Kyle Gibson (2-5, 3.25) faces White Sox RHP James Shields (2-9) on Wednesday night. HOUSTON — One obvious benefit of a club-record-tying 12-game winning streak and 13 victories in 14 games is the positive impact it has on the standings, something the Houston Astros could attest to before dropping the opener of a three-game set with the Kansas City Royals on Friday. On June 5 [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/...ntic-vita-vea-jersey]http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-vita-vea-jersey[/url] , the Astros (50-27) were the scuffling team, falling two games behind the Seattle Mariners in the American League West with a 7-1 loss, their seventh setback over 10 games. The entered this weekend 3 1/2 games ahead of the Mariners and maintained that lead Friday when Seattle lost at Boston 14-10. Midseason standings are fluid, and it’s far too early to get enthralled by scoreboard watching. “I think I pay attention to our team,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “I appreciate the stress that comes with whether you’re a game up or a game back or five games up or five games back. I really think we’re chasing ourselves. I think we need to play our best baseball and we’ll sort out the standings as it gets towards the later end of the season. “I’m aware of it because I’m a baseball enthusiast; I watch the scores all the time. It’s what I do. I’m not emotionally drained when other teams go on win streaks and I’m not emotionally charged by a couple losses. I just want our team to play well.” Right-hander Lance McCullers (8-3, 3.77 ERA) gets the start in the middle game of the series for Houston. He is 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA over four career starts against the Royals, and he recorded a no-decision in his previous outing against them after allowing four runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over six innings in a 7-4 Astros victory on Sunday at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals will hand the ball to right-hander Ian Kennedy (1-7, 5.31 ERA) on Saturday. Kennedy is winless over his last 13 starts, one behind Athletics right-hander Chris Bassitt for the longest active streak in the majors. He is 0-7 with a 6.12 ERA since his only win on April 7. Kennedy is 4-1 with a 1.99 ERA over five career starts against the Astros, including 3-0 with a 0.92 ERA over three starts at Minute Maid Park. The Royals (23-52) on Friday began transitioning veteran Alcides Escobar off shortstop, ending his string of 407 consecutive starts there by moving him to center field for the opener of their series with the Astros. Escobar finished 2-for-2 with two walks, marking the first time since Sept. 6, 2017 [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/...nald-jones-ii-jersey]http:///...nald-jones-ii-jersey[/url] , against the Detroit Tigers that he reached base in all four plate appearances. Escobar, a free agent following the season, has been a mainstay at short for the Royals since 2011. Before making his first career start in center on Friday, Escobar last played that position on Aug. 2, 2010, while with the Milwaukee Brewers, shifting in the eighth inning after starting at shortstop. “We know that he’s athletic enough to play it and we want Mondi (22-year-old infielder Adalberto Mondesi) playing short,” Royals manager Ned Yost said of Escobar. “We just think that the time is right. We talked to the coaches about it and they feel like he’ll be fine. “He’s really excited about the opportunity at playing multiple positions, not only center but some third and some second. He knows that his next career move is probably going to be a utility-type player on the field and he’s anxious to start showing people that he can handle it.”
