CHICAGO (AP) — The rebuilding Chicago White Sox caught a glimpse of their future the last two days.Adam Engel broke a tie with a two-run homer in a five-run fifth Aaron Donald Jersey Elite , Carlos Rodon continued his torrid stretch with six strong innings and the White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 7-3 on Wednesday.Rodon’s performance came one day after prized prospect Michael Kopech pitched two scoreless innings in his big league debut. Together, they project to be the cornerstones of a young rotation on the come.“Yeah, it’s definitely fun to see some new faces,” said Rodon, who allowed three hits and three walks and struck out five. “Last night was pretty exciting, pretty loud out there — the loudest it has been in awhile.”“It’s extremely exciting,” said bench coach Joe McEwing, who filled in for Manager Rick Renteria for the third straight game. “When you have pitchers that have plus-plus stuff, and even if they’re having a tough outing, they’re able to fight through it because of their stuff … As they continue to grow, they’ll continue to get to that level.”Nicky Delmonico and Tim Anderson also homered off Twins starter Kyle Gibson (7-10), helping send him to only his second loss in seven career decisions at Guaranteed Rate Field.Chicago won for the sixth time in eight games.“We’ve picked it up offensively and our pitching has been really good http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.co...mes-jersey ,” said Delmonico, who homered in four of the last six games. “We’ve been playing good defense, so it’s all clicking right now.”The White Sox sent 11 batters to the plate against Gibson and Gabriel Moya in the fifth to snap a 2-2 tie.Omar Narvaez drew a walk before Engel hit an 0-2 fastball over the left-field fence. Yolmer Sanchez followed with a walk and advanced to second on Avisail Garcia’s one-out single. Sanchez scored when second baseman Logan Forsythe couldn’t handle Daniel Palka’s hard grounder that was ruled an error. Delmonico was walked intentionally, and Matt Davidson hit a two-run single that knocked Gibson out of the game. The right-hander gave up seven runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings.“In that situation, I had (Engel) 0-2, but I was really thinking I had a chance to get a double play there and get out of trouble pretty quickly,” Gibson said. “I just threw one too many sinkers in.”Rodon (5-3) allowed four of the first five batters to reach base before he settled down. He is 5-1 with a 2.31 ERA over his last 10 starts.Xavier Cedeno, Juan Minaya and Hector Santiago combined for three innings of one-run relief.Forsythe led off the game with a walk and, one out later, Jorge Polanco homered into the left-field bleachers, the first off Rodon in 26 innings. He didn’t allow another hit until Forsythe’s infield single with one out in the fifth.Chicago pulled even on solo homers by Delmonico in the second and Anderson in the fourth. Anderson’s 17th matched his career high of a year ago.Forsythe’s single off Minaya in the seventh, his third of the game http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/...ald-jersey , scored the final run.SOX TRADE AVILANThe White Sox acquired RHP Felix Paulino from Philadelphia for LHP Luis Avilan, whose 58 relief appearances led the staff.

He has allowed six runs in 27 innings since being acquired from the Baltimore Orioles on July 31.“This is a fun team to play for, especially right now,” Gausman said. “We’re playing well and it’s a fun place to come to work every day. A little different than where I’ve been this season. It was frustrating being over there, being a part of the season (the Orioles are) having over there was tough.”Swanson’s first homer gave the Braves a 2-0 lead in the fifth before he sent another two-run shot into nearly the same spot in the left field bleachers, extending the lead to 5-0 in the seventh. Kurt Suzuki doubled down the left-field line, scoring Ozzie Albies from first for the third run. Tyler Flowers scored on a wild pitch in the ninth to make it 6-0.“You’re not really looking at the results,” Swanson said. “You’re really looking at the progress and the process. … It’s definitely a good thing moving forward, but tomorrow’s a new day.”Ivan Nova (7-8) allowed Swanson’s first home run after retiring his initial 10 batters, including the first nine on 29 pitches. Ender Inciarte singled to center for Atlanta’s first hit with one out in the fourth.Nova got through six innings on 78 pitches (51 strikes), but was removed when Josh Harrison pinch-hit with one out and the Pirates trailing 2-0 in the sixth.

It’s been tough the last week. A lot of good pitching.”Harrison singled and the Pirates eventually loaded the bases with two outs, but Gausman got out of the jam when Josh Bell grounded out to short.“(Gausman) is pitching exactly how we had hoped when we got him,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “He was really, really good tonight. That was huge.”Gregory Polanco led off the ninth with a home run off Chad Sobotka for Pittsburgh’s lone run.“Can we adjust the lineup, look at some different things? We’ve talked about it,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “It’s been hard. These guys are battling. Guys are doing some different things to try to change up some things. … We’re not getting the results we want.”ROSTER MOVESBraves: OF Michael Reed was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett.
