|White Sox manager Rick Renteria has been talking with Yoan Moncada about his focus lately.
The talented second baseman sure looked locked in on Sunday.
Moncada broke out of a slump with a three-run homer and six RBIs Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys Womens , and the White Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 10-3 for a split of their four-game series.
”Anytime you’re going through a rough moment, you have doubts, you have questions,” Moncada said through an interpreter. ”But when you keep working hard, you can answer those questions.
”I keep grinding and just working hard.”
Daniel Palka and Yolmer Sanchez also connected for the White Sox, who had lost nine of 10. Carlos Rodon (1-2) pitched a season-high eight innings in his fourth start after missing the beginning of the year while recovering from shoulder surgery last September.
Moncada, who hit .183 over the previous 35 games, gave the White Sox a 3-2 lead with a three-run double in the fifth. Moncada then scored on Avisail Garcia’s single, and Jose Abreu added another RBI single.
Palka, Sanchez and Moncada all went deep in the sixth. Moncada belted a three-run drive for his 10th homer, making it 10-2 Chicago.
”I think he’s probably giving a little bit of a wakeup call to himself in terms of where he sees himself,” Renteria said. ”I think he’s also learned that truly you have to take every single pitch of a game into consideration because they all matter.
”I think he’s starting to realize that maybe I have to have a little bit more focus and intensity.”
Oakland set a modern major league record when Mark Canha hit a drive to left on Rodon’s first pitch of the fifth Ian Thomas Color Rush Jersey , extending the A’s streak to 25 straight road games with a homer. Canha also opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the second.
A’s right-hander Paul Blackburn (1-2) allowed six runs and eight hits in five-plus innings. He permitted only one baserunner through the first four, but got into trouble with two out in the fifth.
The rally started with back-to-back singles by Omar Narvaez and Leury Garcia, and then Blackburn hit ninth hitter Adam Engel with a pitch.
”Garcia didn’t look very good on a couple changeups I threw. I threw another one that was a little up and he kind of flipped it over there (right field),” Blackburn said. ”Then I hit (Engel), and it was kind of downhill from there.”
Rodon allowed two runs and seven hits. The eight innings matched his career high.
”It was good to go eight and just be ahead of guys,” Rodon said. ”There’s up and down days when you go through shoulder surgery or any kind of surgery for a player. You just have to work through it, try to make your way back.”
Well-traveled right-hander Edwin Jackson will be activated on Monday and start for Oakland at Detroit.
The A’s will become his 13th major league team, which ties retired right-hander Octavio Dotel for the major league record. The 34-year-old went 0-1 with a 4.02 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Nashville. He owns a 98-120 major league record and 4.67 ERA in 15 seasons.
”I’m probably the only guy in the clubhouse that has never met him, but I did earlier today,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said.
Outfielder Nick Martini will be sent to Triple-A Nashville to open a spot for Jackson on the roster.
Melvin said the team celebrated Canha’s record-setting home run in the dugout.
”It’s nice to hang your hat on, but it certainly would have been a little better if we had won the game,” Melvin said.
The previous record was set by the Orioles in 1996.
Athletics: RHP Daniel Mengden (sprained right foot) returned to the Bay Area to consult with team physicians. The injury is not believed to be related to his previous right foot injuries. ”We’ll probably know a little bit more in the next couple of days Authentic Robert Griffin III Jersey ,” Melvin said. … INF Matt Chapman (right hand contusion) could have a cortisone shot in the wrist area on Monday and will sit out the Tigers series. He had an injection in his thumb last Monday. The hope is the trouble spot has been localized and he’ll be available on the next homestand.
White Sox: RHP prospect Dane Dunning left his start Saturday for Double-A Birmingham with right elbow soreness, Renteria said. He will undergo an MRI.
Athletics: Jackson will make his A’s debut in the opener of a four-game series in Detroit. RHP Jordan Zimmermann (2-0, 4.95 ERA) goes for the Tigers.
White Sox: Following an off day, the White Sox begin a three-game set against visiting Minnesota on Tuesday. RHP Reynaldo Lopez (2-5, 3.59 ERA) opposes Twins RHP Lance Lynn (5-5, 4.64 ERA) in the opener.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — After losing two games to start the postseason, the Washington Capitals stand on the brink of completing a comeback and advancing to the next round in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
A 4-3 overtime victory on Saturday in Washington gave the Capitals a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series and put them one win from closing out the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Game 6 will be played Monday night at Nationwide Arena, where the Capitals already have won twice in the playoffs.
“It’s a big win moving forward,” Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin said after the fourth overtime game in the series. “We still have one more game. (We have to) just play our game. It’s simple but it’s hard. They’re not going to give us an easy one. It’s going to be interesting.”
The Capitals keep finding ways to win. Their latest victory came on a goal by Nicklas Backstrom, his second of the game, on a redirection of a shot by Dmitry Orlov at 11:53 of overtime after Washington was outshot 16-1 in the third period.
“We know (in a) best out of seven series we need to be a little better if we’re going to win it http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-brad-marchand-jersey ,” Backstrom said. “I honestly thought we got a little lucky. But we’ll take it.
“We need be a little more aggressive. We need to be better with the puck.”
The bounces had gone the Blue Jackets’ way in their two overtime wins to start the series, but little has gone right for them since then.
The Blue Jackets were beaten in double overtime in Game 3 at home, struggled in Game 4, also at their own rink, and then played possibly their best game of the series on Saturday but weren’t rewarded.
With the Blue Jackets in a must-win predicament, they expect to put forth their best effort on Monday. Coach John Tortorella was confident enough to say after the latest loss in Washington, “I won’t have to say a damn word to them. We’ll be back here for Game 7.”
Ovechkin made a similar prediction after Washington dropped the first two games in the series, saying the team would win the next two in Columbus. The Capitals did just that.
Washington coach Barry Trotz understands that Tortorella is trying to motivate his team with a bold prediction.
“Well, what else are you going to say?” Trotz said. “That’s good. He wants to get it out there (that) he believes in his team, just as I believe in my team. So it’s our job for that not to happen, and we’re going to try to do that.”
Can the Blue Jackets deliver for Tortorella and the Columbus fans, who have yet to see the franchise win a playoff series since its inaugural season in 2000-01?
“Our backs are against the wall Authentic Lorenzo Carter Jersey , right?” Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno said. “If you can’t play your best game come Monday, then that’s disappointing. I don’t have any worries at all about our group going into Monday. If we have the same effort, the same mentality that we did (Saturday), we should be just fine.”
Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert, who scored two goals (one short-handed), quickly put Game 5 behind him and looked ahead to Monday night.
“I can’t wait to get back in front of fans,” he said. “I think we really owe them one. It’s a great barn. It’s going to be tough for them to come in. We’re excited about it.
“We’ve got an epic game at home to tie this up. … We want to have a dominant effort at home and get back to Washington.”
Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones said, “It’s do or die. Desperation level is at an all-time high. We feel confident going on our home ice.”
Capitals goalie Braden Holtby withstood the Blue Jackets’ third-period attack, finishing with 39 saves and giving Washington a chance to come away with a win in overtime. He expects another nail-biter in the highly competitive matchup between the Metropolitan Division teams.
Washington is 7-8 all time in games when it has a 3-2 series lead.
“It’s going to best game yet of the series,”Holtby said. “Both teams are not giving an inch, fighting for every little inch out there. We know they’re going to come out hard for Game 6.”
