White Sox offense shows more signs of life in loss to Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Adam Eaton’s offensive outburst is another sign the White Sox offense continues to thaw.

Eaton paced a 14-hit attack with four of his own as the White Sox rallied from a huge early deficit only to lose to the Milwaukee Brewers 10-7 on Monday night at Miller Park. Eaton reached base all five times and drove in his first two runs of the season, including the game-tying RBI in the top of the eighth inning.

Over their last nine games, the White Sox are hitting .292/.365/.413 and averaging 4.67 runs per game.

“We have a very good offense,” outfielder Melky Cabrera said through an interpreter. “I think we did a good job today, especially in the second half of the game. They won today, but there are still two games left in the series and we are in a good position to come back tomorrow and win that game and then Wednesday’s game, too.”

The White Sox averaged 3.2 runs per game through their first 20 contests. They are only 1-14 when they score three runs or fewer. But Eaton’s big night comes two days after Alexei Ramirez broke out with a pair of homers during Saturday’s doubleheader. Catcher Geovany Soto blasted his second homer on Monday night and went 2-for-3.

Those performances helped the White Sox overcome deficits of 6-0 and 7-2.

“We battled today,” starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija said. “Things didn’t go our way in the end. You see a lot of fight in this team. Keep doing that and you’ll see good results.”

The White Sox are 11-3 this season when they score at least four runs.
