The Chicago White Sox got off to a good start on Opening Day behind the solid performance of ace Chris Sale. Sale surrendered three runs in seven innings of work to get the victory. Sale walked only one hitter, and fanned eight. After a shaky third inning, he was able to subdue the A's lineup through seven innings. The bullpen lead by David Robertson was able to close out the game, and get the win.
The White Sox improved their offense, and defense over the off season, and it paid off early knocking starter Rich Hill out of the box in the third inning, but the difference in play was an error by A's first baseman Mark Canha, which allowed two runs to cross the plate. In the very competitive American League, it is important to get off to a good star. The White Sox seek to may it two straight in Oakland tonight behind the southpaw Jose Quintana.
