White Sox Close Out The Spring With A Victory

The Southsiders took on a familiar face in the form of Jon Garland on Saturday at Chase Field in Arizona. They would finished the Cactus League on a positive note beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-0. White Sox starters Jose Contreras and Bartolo Colon pitched a combined shutout. Contreras pitched the first four innings only giving up one hit. While Colon pitched the final five innings and earned a save for his efforts.

Carlos Quentin came back to the desert and bit the hand that once fed him. He hit a one out double in the third and would eventually score on an Alexi Ramirez single. The White Sox finished with a spring record of 16-20. While spring records are irrelevant the regular season begins Monday.

Weather permitting the White Sox will open the regular season against the Kansas City Royals at U.S. Cellular Field on Monday. Mark Buehrle will get the ball for the Sox and will be opposed by the Royals Gil Meche. Game time is 1:05 p.m. CT.
