Sox bullpen falters in loss
White Sox rookie manager Robin Ventura summoned closer Addison Reed in the ninth to protect a one-run lead – even though Jose Quintana had thrown only 77 pitches in eight shutout innings.
The move backfired miserably. Reed gave up the tying run on Juan Rivera’s sacrifice fly, and Matt Thornton allowed a two-out RBI single in the 10th to Dee Gordon in a 2-1 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday in Los Angeles.
Red Sox 7, Cubs 4: David Ortiz homered and Ryan Kalish had a tiebreaking RBI single to lead the Red Sox to a victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
