Santana's 1-hitter leads Twins over White Sox 6-0

Santana's 1-hitter leads Twins over White Sox 6-0

When the White Sox take the field for the first time Friday night, their entire outfield will be united not just by the name on the front of the jersey, but the back as well.

The last White Sox pitcher to win in his Major League Baseball debut (start or relief appearance) was Scott Carroll, who beat the Rays 9-2, April 27, 2014. Should be the White Sox's designated hitter. He was a first-round draft pick of the Milwaukee Brewers in 2010, but did not sign and then was picked by the Athletics in the fourth round in 2013. He generally looked out of sync and uncomfortable against Mejia, a guy who the Sox hammered in his debut and who struggled with his control Friday night.

That's because the White Sox starting outfield will all share the last name for Friday.

Blue Jays: Hit major-league low.191 while going 1-8 in first nine games.

For the team's series opener against the Twins in Minnesota, manager Rick Renteria will roll out an outfield consisting of Willy Garcia in left field, Leury Garcia in center field and Avisail Garcia in right field.

Garcia began the 2017 season hitting.423 at Triple-A for the White Sox.

The three Garcias are not related.

The hard-throwing Pressly had not given up a run in three appearances this season, with many in the Twins organization seeing him as a future closer. Santana ranks fifth in the American League in ERA, with just one run allowed in his first two starts. Mejia gave up four hits in all while walking three and striking out four.

Chicago is 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 5-13 in Quintana's last 18 division starts while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Todd Frazier returned to Chicago's lineup at DH after missing two games with flu-like symptoms.

The outfielders themselves think it's pretty cool. The game was delayed for 35 minutes at the start because of rain. Steady showers fell again in the second and third innings, but the teams were able to keep playing. Meanwhile, Minnesota starter Ervin Santana has won his initial two outings of the season, including limited Chicago to two hits in six scoreless innings last week.
