White Sox snap 7-game losing streak, rally to beat Mets
NEW YORK (AP) — Tyler Saladino hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning and the Chicago White Sox rallied from an early four-run deficit, stopping a seven-game losing streak Tuesday night with a 6-4 victory over the New York Mets.
Todd Frazier’s two-run drive was his 16th homer this season, giving him the major league lead, and the White Sox got four innings of scoreless relief from their beleaguered bullpen to win for only the fifth time in 20 games.
Neil Walker hit a two-run homer for the Mets, who led 4-0 after three innings. But rookie Steven Matz, trying to win his eighth consecutive start, suddenly faded in the sixth and gave up three quick runs.
Melky Cabrera drew a leadoff walk in the eighth from Hansel Robles (0-3). One out later, Saladino sent a 2-2 fastball to left field for his third home run, putting Chicago in front 5-4.
