Rally puts Sox over .500 mark

CHICAGO (AP) — The way Adam Eaton sees it, there’s a benefit to Jose Abreu’s fast start beyond the Cuban slugger’s home runs and RBIs.

His success makes every hitter in the Chicago White Sox lineup want to join in the fun.

“It’s come, jump on the bandwagon,” Eaton said. “It’s very contagious. You hear it all the time: ‘Hitting is contagious.’ It’s very true.”

It was the case as the unsung members of the lineup took the lead role in a 7-3 comeback victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday.

Alejandro De Aza hit a two-run homer, Eaton had a two-run double and Marcus Semien had a two-out double to plate the winning run.

Abreu, named American League co-player of the week earlier in the day, went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI, his 32nd. But it was the unheralded trio that did most of the damage, driving in five of the seven runs.

“This is a team effort here,” Semien said. “Guys just know their roles and the middle of the order has really been driving guys in.”

The White Sox (14-13) moved above .500 by taking three of four from Tampa. It was Chicago’s third series win this season.

Andre Rienzo (2-0) allowed five hits and three runs — two earned — in six innings to get the win.

Jake Odorizzi (1-3) allowed eight hits and four runs in 4 1/3 innings to get the loss.

“They outplayed us over the course of four games,” Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. “They’re a little bit hot right now and we’re not.

“It started out great, the way the game started out for us. Then De Aza’s homer put air back in their balloon.”

Tampa Bay quickly jumped on top with a pair of runs in the first inning. Leadoff man Ben Zobrist doubled and scored as Rienzo threw away a sacrifice bunt attempt by Desmond Jennings. Rienzo was credited with two errors on the play. The first error was for not picking the ball up cleanly and the second was for throwing it down the right-field line.
