Gavin Sheets singled with one out in the ninth inning Monday against the Kansas City Royals. AJ Pollock pinch ran, representing the tying run for the Chicago White Sox.
He was quickly erased when Tim Anderson grounded into a game-ending double play.
The Sox had 10 hits but little to show for it in a 2-1 loss in front of 17,500 at Guaranteed Rate Field.
“One run,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Credit the pitching. (Royals starter Daniel) Lynch, he shut us out earlier in the year. Good pitcher. Bullpen shut us down. Couple of balls hit hard.
“(Lynch) moves the ball around. He’s got a good, live fastball. Nice slider and a good changeup. I don’t know how many outs he got on his changeup, probably a half-dozen. Two strikes, 3-2 counts. That’s good pitching.”
