Red Sox 4, White Sox 0: Rookie Scott
Carroll pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-hit ball while Adam Dunn and Dayan
Viciedo homered as visiting Chicago claimed the opener of the four-game
Carroll (3-5) walked two and struck out five, earning his first
win since May 27 and improving to 1-3 in five road starts. Dunn
scored twice and joined Viciedo with two hits for the White Sox, who
have won four of five.
Clay Buchholz (3-5) went seven innings, allowing four runs and five
hits while striking out seven in the loss. A.J. Pierzynski and
Jackie Bradley Jr. had the only hits for the Red Sox, who have lost
six of the first seven contests on their 10-game homestand.
Dunn opened the scoring with his 13th homer, a solo blast to right
in the second. Viciedo broke it open with his 11th blast - a
three-run shot to center - on a 3-2 pitch in the fourth.
The Red Sox didn't advance a runner past first base until Bradley
worked a walk leading off the sixth and stole second, but he was
stranded there. Boston had only three at-bats with runners in
scoring position and stranded five men.
