Rios' 3-run homer ends Sox's struggles with RISP
CHICAGO – Standing steps off first base, Paul Konerko threw up his fist, partly in relief and partly in excitement, as he watched the ball sail over the fence.
The White Sox’s failures to capitalize with runners in scoring position seemed a distant memory after Alex Rios’ three-run homer sparked the South Siders to a 6-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Monday. Their comeback win pushed their division lead to three games and snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Tigers.
Rios’ go-ahead home run in the sixth ended a 0 for 10 stretch with runners in scoring position. But that didn’t erase the Sox’s prolonged struggles to drive in base runners.
