White Sox to play two after opener rained out
Straight doubleheader against Angels set for Tuesday at 4:10 p.m. CT
CHICAGO -- The series opener between the Angels and White Sox scheduled for Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field was postponed due to inclement weather.
A delay was announced about 90 minutes before first pitch, with the hope that a window to play would present itself after a two-hour deluge. That window never opened, and the game was called at 7:30 p.m. CT.
This contest will be made up Tuesday as part of a straight doubleheader, beginning at 4:10 p.m. The originally scheduled game will begin at 7:10 p.m., or 30 minutes after the conclusion of Game 1.
Hector Noesi gets the start in the opener for the White Sox, with Garrett Richards taking the mound for the Angels. Scott Carroll starts Game 2, with Jered Weaver taking the ball for Los Angeles.
Fans can exchange their game tickets and parking coupons from Monday's postponement for any future regular-season White Sox home game. For more information, visit whitesox.com or orgullosox.com.
After losing seven of their first eight on the recently completed 11-game road trip, the White Sox bring a three-game winning streak into Tuesday's twin bill. The White Sox are 3-9 this season vs. the American League West, with Jose Abreu carrying a 14-game hitting streak into the doubleheader.
"If you think about it, all those games, even in Baltimore, we were close," Abreu said of the streak through interpreter and White Sox manager of cultural development Lino Diaz. "But we were happy to get those games. We played well in Toronto."
"We played well in those three games, we played a complete game," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "You play better defense. There were a couple of hits there that you get that if we would have gotten a couple of those at another point in the road trip, things would be different. They come in and continue to grind it out and you have a different feeling than you did in the start."
