Fulmer walked two in the third before giving up an RBI single to left field to Joey Wendle, but the ball rolled under Nick Delmonico's glove to score another run. Jose Abreu went 2 for 5 with a home run, a double and three RBIs, while Yolmer Sanchez and Adam Engel each chipped in an RBI to round out the scoring for the White Sox in the loss. Tim Anderson grounded to third, and Colome retired Leury Garcia for his second save in four chances.
