#1 ERA and more than a strikeout per inning von riluowanying123 02.05.2019 14:08

CHICAGO -- Minnesota manager Paul Molitor acknowledged he cant wait until the season is over. And that was before having to watch Carlos Rodon tie an AL record by striking out the first seven Twins and Tim Anderson flirt with the cycle for the White Sox.I think a lot of people are looking for a chance to kind of put this one to rest, he said.Hours later, after the Chicago White Sox cruised to a 7-3 victory Friday night, the Twins had their most losses since the franchise moved to Minnesota: 103.You kind of get what you deserve, a subdued Molitor said.The Twins couldnt hit Rodon to start and couldnt get Anderson out while fuming at his home run celebration. Its the most losses for the franchise since the Washington Senators went 50-104 in 1949. The Twins, who moved to Minnesota in 1960, are 57-103 with two games left.Thats tough to swallow, right-hander Tyler Duffey said. But its part of the game, part of learning and part of getting better.Duffey (9-12) gave up five runs in two-plus innings to ensure Minnesota wont have a 10-game winner in their miserable season.Rodon quickly set the tone for Minnesotas dubious night that topped the 102-loss Twins of 1982.The 23-year-old lefty fanned Brian Dozier, Jorge Polanco and Robbie Grossman on sliders in the first. He got Miguel Sano on a fastball, Kennys Vargas on a changeup and saw Eduardo Escobar chase a slider in the dirt in the second.When John Ryan Murphy was caught looking at a 97 mph fastball to lead off the third, Rodon tied the AL record for strikeouts to start a game set by Joe Cowley of the White Sox on May 28, 1986, at Texas.Youve just got to throw strikes, go right at them, Rodon said.Logan Schafers ensuing double left Rodon one strikeout shy of the major league record to start a game shared by the Astros Jim Deshaies and the Mets Jacob deGrom.Rodons strikeout streak was 10 when figuring in the final three hitters he faced while fanning 11 in a victory Sunday at Cleveland. The last pitcher to strike out 10 in a row was Eric Gagne of the Dodgers over four games in May 2003.Duffey gave up six hits while getting six outs. Omar Narvaez hit his first career homer in the fourth off Pat Dean as the White Sox built a 7-0 lead.Anderson, a rookie, finished a double shy of the cycle and irritated Duffey after hitting a two-run homer in the third inning.I mean he backpedaled out of the box. Stood there and enjoyed it, Duffey said. Its just one of those things. Its one thing to hit a homer. I gave up a 500-foot homer to Nelson Cruz and he jogs around the bases.Ryan ORourke threw behind Anderson in the eighth and both benches were warned. Anderson then grounded to third to end his chances at the cycle. He tripled and scored in the first and singled in the sixth.I wanted to hit a double. I did it in Double-A, Anderson said. When everything is clicking for you, I feel real great.Rodon (9-10) was dominant until a 31-pitch sixth inning when he gave up three runs -- two earned -- to end his night. He allowed three hits and three walks while striking out 10 in Chicagos sixth win in seven games.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: 1B Joe Mauer (quadriceps) remained out. ... Molitor said veteran C Kurt Suzuki has taken a beating and wont catch again this season. Suzuki is in the last year of his contract. Its probably been as awkward a month for him as anybody in that clubhouse when youre potentially playing out into your free agency as a catcher in your early 30s, Molitor said.White Sox: Tests showed 2B Tyler Saladino has a herniated disk. He had an epidural Monday and doesnt believe hell need surgery. It was kind of crippling for a little bit, he said.DOZIER BACKReturning from his first off day since May 24, Dozier extended his slump to 1 for 32 before singling and scoring in the sixth. He remained at 42 homers and 99 RBI.UP NEXTWhite Sox RHP James Shields (6-18, 5.82 ERA) closes a tough season Saturday night against Twins LHP Hector Santiago (12-10, 4.87). Wholesale Air Jordan .

Air Jordan Ireland Sale . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. Dylan Bundy was picked fourth overall in the 2011 draft, and he has never had a problem with production in the minor leagues. All told, he had a 2.59 ERA and more than a strikeout per inning. Combine that with his high-90s stuff and draft pedigree, and it ensures plenty of chances at big league success. Before this year, though, Bundy had earned a grand total of five outs in the major leagues.The issue, of course, was injury. Tommy John surgery was only part of it. Bundy has dealt with lat strains, shoulder calcification issues and between-start bouts of elbow soreness that have put him on disabled lists so often since he was drafted that he only has 241 1/3 innings in the majors and minors combined in the last five years..ddddddddddddMake mention of the long road he has traveled because of those injuries, and Bundy can barely manage to put it in words. Pfffft, he uttered with a smile when I did.But right now, Bundy is dealing. Hes averaging 94 mph on the fastball, throwing a top-five changeup by whiffs, and, most important, feeling good. He may have that injury history to thank for some of his current success, too. Nietzsche once said, That which does not kill us makes us stronger, and when it comes to Bundys mechanics, his pitching mix and his approach, maybe that maxim rings true for the Orioles right-hander.
