White Sox defeat Reds in Cactus League opener

White Sox defeat Reds in Cactus League opener

White Sox right fielder Nomar Mazara bats against the Reds in the Sox’ Cactus League opener in Goodyear, Ariz.

Two scoreless innings by Dylan Cease, homer by Seby Zavala highlight White Sox’ 7-2 victory.

White Sox 7, Reds 2

Dylan Cease looked sharp with three strikeouts over two scoreless innings, catcher Seby Zavala homered to right-center field against Alex Powers and had two RBI, and Leury Garcia, Tim Anderson, Nick Madrigal and Danny Mendick each drove in a run in the White Sox’ Cactus League opener Sunday. Three unearned runs in a four-run ninth put this one away. Aside from catcher Yasmani Grandal and designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion, manager Rick Renteria played what could be his Opening Day lineup for the first half of the game. Anderson, Yoan Moncada, Jose Abreu, Nomar Mazara, Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert were a combined 1-for-15 at the plate.

In the field

Top second base prospect Madrigal made an error on a ground ball ranging to his left and one-hopped a relay on a potential double play ball. Left fielder Eloy Jimenez, demonstrating more authority in left field — he’s not a rookie any more — emphatically called off Tim Anderson on a pop-up behind shortstop. Catcher James McCann threw out Shogo Akiyama to end the Reds’ fourth inning (second baseman Leury Garcia on the quick tag), then doubled leading off the fifth and scored the first run of the game on Garcia’s single.

On the mound

Prospects Matt Foster (two scoreless innings) and Tyler Johnson (perfect ninth with two strikeouts) looked crisp in their first Cactus League appearances, and 2019 bullpen contributor Jose Ruiz turned in two scoreless innings despite allowing two walks, helping his cause with a good stop on a sharp comebacker turned into a rundown out between third and home.

On deck

Sox at Dodgers, Glendale, 2:05 p.m., NBCSCH, Monday, Alex McRae vs Ross Stripling. Also scheduled to pitch: Evan Marshall, Jacob Lindgren, Codi Heuer, Adalberto Mejia, Ian Hamilton.
