Chicago left-hander Chris Sale held the Milwaukee Brewers to 3-hits while striking out 11 in eight innings as the White Sox pulled out a 4-2 win at Miller Park.
Sale walked just one and improved to 3-1 on the season. He out-dueled Brewers starter Mike Fiers, who allowed just 2 runs on five hits with a walk and seven strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings of work.
The game was tied 2-2 in the 8th when Brewers reliever Michael Blazek (3-1) entered the game. He retired the first batter he faced, before running into trouble. Alexei Ramirez ended up driving in the winning run with a bases loaded sacrifice fly. The Sox added an insurance run in the 9th for the games final run.
Sale held the Brewers scoreless until the 5th when Elian Herrera homered for the third straight game.
The Brewers fell to 12-22, 12-games behind the Central Division leading St. Louis Cardinals.
The Brewers send Jimmy Nelson (1-3, 4.25) to the mound tonight in the final game of the series. Jose Quintana (1-3, 5.03) gets the nod for the White Sox. First pitch is set for 7:10 pm.
