White Sox shut down by farm team 3-0

Austin Yount and Jose Martinez had RBI singles and three

different pitchers combined to strikeout 10 Chicago White Sox as

the Class-A Winston-Salem Dash beat Chicago 3-0 on Wednesday.

The White Sox had three hits and the starters played 4 1/2

innings.

”We’re only two days away from the season,” manager Ozzie

Guillen said before the game. ”We want to keep everyone healthy,

but we also want to put on a great game for the crowd. Hopefully we

can make everybody happy.”

The White Sox open the regular season Friday at Cleveland.

The Dash took advantage of the lineup changes, with Yount

belting a two-out single in the bottom of the fifth off White Sox

reliever Addison Reed for the game’s first run.

Martinez would then add another two-out RBI single off reliever

Jim Ballinger during a two-run eighth inning.

Reed, a non-roster invitee, took the loss in relief for the

White Sox. He struck out five.
