Williams helps Pirates shut out struggling Sox

First Pitch White Sox at Pirates

Edits throughoutTrevor Williams scattered six hits in seven innings, Adam Frazier homered to start a four-run first, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the White Sox 7-0 night to send Chicago to its worst start since 1948.

Pittsburgh's Gregory Polanco has an extra-base hit (two home runs and two doubles) in each of his last four games. I was trying to figure out which way to go, trying to make that adjustment, and I just never figured that out.

Pittsburgh built its 4-0 lead on Frazier's homer, Bell's two-run double and Moran's double. "I feel like, for the most part, we were anticipating slower, earlier and it kind of just worked out for us". In 39.2 innings and a 2-3 record this year, Taillon has a 4.08 ERA with 35 Ks.

"I think he didn't really feel comfortable in the beginning", White Sox manager Rick Renteria said.

The Pirates' 7-0 pounding of the White Sox didn't come without a price.

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Starling Marte was removed from Tuesday's game in the third inning with right side discomfort. Marte doubled and scored in the bottom of the first. He was replaced by Rodriguez. Catcher Francisco Cervelli left the game at the end of the third inning with right forearm discomfort.

For Wednesday's game, the Sox will be bringing out LHP Hector Santiago.

In a couple of starts earlier this month, Santiago put up 10 earned over 8.0 innings on 11 hits. He'll be replacing right-hander Carson Fulmer, whose scheduled start was pushed back to Saturday.

Pirates: Right-handed pitcher Jameson Taillon (2-3, 4.08 ERA) is expected to start on Wednesday. As for Taillon, he left his last start due to a finger laceration but seems to be okay.
