Wild Pitches Dominate White Sox’s 2-1 Victory Over Tigers in Extra Innings

CHICAGO (AP) — Yoán Monacada ran to the plate with a wild pitch in the tenth inning that seemed to drop umpire Cory Blaser in the Chicago White Sox’s 2-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.

The three runs of the game were thanks to wild pitches.

Romy González led off the 10th for the White Sox with a sacrifice off Jose Cisnero (2-1) to advance automatic runner Moncada to third.

After Yasmani Grandal advanced to second and Gavin Sheets was intentionally walked, Jake Burger was hit with a pitch. They initially ruled it a foul, but overturned the decision after it was challenged. Tim Anderson was at the plate when Cisnero threw a fastball and hit Blaser.

Andrew Benintendi had two hits for the White Sox, who have won three of four. Reynaldo Lopez (1-4) pitched the scoreless tenth.

Zach McKinstry tripled and scored for the Tigers.

For the Tigers, Puerto Rican Javier Báez 4-0.

For the White Sox, the Dominican Eloy Jimenez 4-0. Cubans Yoán Moncada 4-0 with a run scored, Yasmani Grandal 4-0. The Venezuelan Elvis Andrus of 2-0.
