Sox fall in 11 to Astros for 3rd loss in a row
CHICAGO (AP) — Evan Gattis celebrated his return to the majors with a two-run homer in the 11th inning that lifted the Houston Astros over the Chicago White Sox 6-5 on Tuesday night.
Astros rookie Tyler White hit a pair of solo shots for his first multihomer game and capped a three-hit night with a double. Jason Castro and Jose Altuve each drove in a run for Houston.
Gattis, who returned from Double-A Corpus Christi earlier in the day, lined an 0-2 pitch from reliever Matt Albers (1-3) into the left-field bullpen for his second homer this season.
Pat Neshek (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win. Tony Sipp allowed Adam Eaton’s RBI double in the 11th before earning his first save.
