White Sox 5, Brewers 2: Lynn’s strong start anchors victory

by Michael Suareo

The White Sox defeated the Brewers in their Spring Training matchup behind the strong efforts of the pitching staff.

Lance Lynn put together a solid start, allowing only two hits and one walk while striking out five through four innings. Reynaldo Lopez followed up in the fifth inning by giving up a solo home run in an otherwise strong showing. Davis Martin took over for the next 2.2 innings and continued to hold down the fort before running into trouble in the eighth inning. Luckily, Nate Fisher took over with two men on base and was able to get out of the inning with no damage done. He then came back to close out the game and gave up a solo home run and a single before putting the game to bed.

At the plate, Elvis Andrus and Oscar Colas hit at the top of the order and continued their strong spring training performances, each going 2-for-3 with Andrus adding a double and an RBI to his stat sheet. Andrew Vaughn had two singles on the day, one being an RBI hit in the first inning, and Yasmani Grandal finished the game with 2 RBIs despite not recording a hit.

With the win, the Sox have improved their Spring Training record to 6-4.
