As many young pitchers, Reynaldo López struggles with confidence from time to time. Sunday was not one of these days for the right-hander who is 25.

He struck out a career-high 14 and let two hits in six innings to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 4-1 triumph over the Detroit Tigers.

The catcher Welington Castillo said about Lopez that he knew he was commanding his fastball and he was assailant with all his pitches.

López let one unjust run and decreased his ERA to 6.03.

Both Jace Fry and Kelvin Herrera worked a hitless inning and Alex Colomé took the final three outs for his fifth save.

The White Sox struck out 20 Detroit batters- Fry, Herrera and Colomé had two each- in order to conclude the major league record for a nine-inning game.

López’s strikeout total was the most by a Chicago starter since Chris Sale.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria expressed that he is a young man still maturing, still learning by himself.

Grayson Greiner had a run-scoring single. It has dropped four straight.

The White Sox got a 12-11 win on Friday night. Saturday night’s game was delayed because of the weather.

How They Scored

Detroit’s run came in the second. Ronny Rodríguez reached on a fault by shortstop Tim Anderson. Rodríguez got second and scored on Greiner’s single.

The White Sox snatched a 2-0 lead in the first on a two-out.

Tigers: 2B Josh Harrison got injured with a left shoulder contusion.

White Sox: Rookie Eloy Jiménez was put on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a high right ankle sprain.

The 22-year-old got injured when he crashed into the left-field wall on Friday night while he was trying to catch a home run by Greiner. Jiménez possibly will be sidelined for a month may be longer. “He will be reevaluated a couple of weeks later and then we will check where he is at,” Renteria said.

Tigers: RHP Tyson Ross begins the opener of a two-game series at Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

White Sox: LHP Manny Bañuelos pitches the opener of a three game home series against Baltimore on Monday night.
