Daily White Sox prospects update: Luis Robert with two hits in his second game of season

Here's your daily update on what the White Sox highly touted prospects are doing in the minor leagues.

Class A Kannapolis

​Luis Robert picked up his first two hits of the season, one going for extra bases, and he drove in two runs in a 6-4 win. He also stole a base. Lincoln Henzman lowered his ERA to 2.56 on the season with six innings of one-run ball.

Class A Winston-Salem

Luis Alexander Basabe hit his eighth home run of the season, which leads this team packed with offensive talent. Blake Rutherford had three hits, including a double, in the 9-4 loss. Alex Call had two hits, including a triple.

Double-A Birmingham

Jordan Guerrero had a relatively brief outing, allowing six runs in his four innings of work in this 8-4 loss. He's got a 6.55 ERA in his 12 starts this season. Eloy Jimenez had two hits, a walk and an RBI, and Zack Collins and Seby Zavala each walked.

Triple-A Charlotte

Jordan Stephens had a rough outing, surrendering seven runs in just four innings in a 7-0 loss. It was his first start giving up more than two earned runs since joining Charlotte last month.

MLB The Show sim: White Sox return home, lose to 1-9 Seattle Mariners

NBC Sports Chicago is simulating the 2020 White Sox season via MLB The Show during the postponement of play. The White Sox, stocked with young talent and veteran offseason acquisitions, were expected to take a big step forward in their rebuild this season. Follow along as we play out the first few months of the season.

Coming off of a sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway Park, the White Sox returned to Guaranteed Rate Field to take on the cellar dwelling Seattle Mariners, who started their season with a 1-9 record.

The first inning seemed to look all too familiar for Dylan Cease as he started the game with two hits given up, putting runners at second and third. Cease dug his feet in and battled to strike out the next three batters to get out of the jam. The young righty reached 99 mph on the gun in his daytime start, but was pulled by Rick Renteria with only 85 pitches through 4 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts and one earned run.

With the game tied at 1, Renteria went to the pen with Kelvin Herrera, but he struggled once again in relief giving up two runs in the fifth.

The White Sox lone run came in the bottom of the second when Eloy Jimenez hit a solo homer to left field, his fourth of the season. That extended his hitting streak to nine games. Later in the frame, Nomar Mazara hit a towering shot to center field only to be robbed by Seattle’s Dom T-Williams at the wall to end the inning and ultimately the Sox scoring.

The White Sox did threaten in the ninth with two outs. Edwin Encarnacion forced a walk followed by a Yasmani Grandal single, which extended his hit streak to seven games. With two aboard, it was Jimenez with the chance to create some magic, but he popped out to right field to end the contest and the White Sox win streak.

Result: Mariners def. White Sox 3-1

Record: 6-4, second in AL Central (0.5 GB of Indians)

W: Marco Gonzales (1-1)

L: Dylan Cease (0-1)

SV: Yoshihisa Hurano (1)

White Sox lineup

  1. Tim Anderson: 2-4 (.372 BA)
  2. Yoan Moncada: 0-4 (.326 BA)
  3. Jose Abreu: 1-4 (.267 BA)
  4. Edwin Encarnacion: 1-3, BB (.235 BA)
  5. Yasmani Grandal: 1-4 (.333 BA)
  6. Eloy Jimenez: 1-4, HR, RBI (.270 BA)
  7. Luis Robert: 0-3 (.182 BA)
  8. Nomar Mazara: 0-3 (.194 BA)
  9. Leury Garcia: 0-3 (.214 BA)

Scoring summary

Top second:

  • Dee Gordon doubled to right field. Kyle Seager scored. 1-0 SEA.

Bottom second:

  • Eloy Jimenez homered to left. 1-1.

Top fifth:

  • Kyle Seager singled to center. Mitch Haniger scored. 2-1 SEA.  
  • Dom T-Williams fielder’s choice. Carlos Gonzalez scored. 3-1 SEA.

Notable performance: Alex Colome has excelled in his new role of middle reliever after Aaron Bummer grabbed the closer job. Colome hasn’t given up a run in 5 1/3 innings pitched and opposing left-handed batters are hitless against Colome this season.

Next game: Tuesday, April 7, Gm. 11: Mariners at White Sox (Taijuan Walker, 0-1, 8.38 ERA vs. Lucas Giolito, 1-0, 2.31 ERA)
