White Sox Minor League Update: April 7, 2018

Birmingham’s bats silenced by Chattanooga

When you’re getting one-hit, frazzled nerves lead to typos.

The four White Sox minor-league affiliates we’re keeping an eye on combined for one hit on Saturday.

But fear not, Mother Nature was the main reason for that.

Charlotte Knights vs Durham Bulls, postponed, rain

No makeup date has been announced, as the two teams will conclude their series on Sunday.

Chattanooga Lookouts 2, Birmingham Barons 0

Seby Zavala: 1-3, BB, K

L: Jordan Stephens (0-1), 6 IP, 2 H, ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 72 GS, 81 pitches/52 strikes ***MVP***

Ian Hamilton: 1 13 innings, 2 BB, 2K

Zavala’s hit broke up the no-hitter in the seventh, and was the only one for the Barons, who struck out nine times. C Zack Collins, the No. 10 overall pick of the 2016 MLB Draft, is still looking for his first hit of the season after going 0-for-4 with two Ks. Leadoff man Tito Polo had the exact same night as Collins.

Lookouts pitchers threw up these linescores on Saturday:

Here’s what’s crazier, by virtue of a longer outing with more Ks, Stephens actually had a better game score than Lookouts starter Gonsalves, 72-69.

But on the offensive side, there were opportunities. The Barons drew five walks, so six baserunners total, and none could be cashed in. They batted .037 for the game.

Winston-Salem Dash at Carolina Mudcats, postponed, rain

Game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sunday.

Kannapolis Intimidators vs Lakewood BlueClaws, postponed, rain

Game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sunday.
