Just one day after the club walked off against the Texas Rangers, the Chicago White Sox found themselves on the opposite end of things Wednesday, falling to the San Francisco Giants in a similar fashion. A blown save was enough to undo several strong innings from the White Sox relievers, and push the club back under .500 in Cactus League play.

In other news around Major League Baseball, Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Matt Garza was shelled in his most recent outing, allowing ten runs – six earned – on nine hits in less than two innings of work. He was arguably the biggest offseason acquisition for Milwaukee, which signed him to a four-year, $50 million deal.

The Dodgers’ Zack Greinke returned for his first appearance since he suffered an injury earlier this spring, the Rockies’ Troy Tulowitzki was hit on the leg by a pitch and is considered day-to-day and Robinson Cano is now hitting over .600 on the spring after adding a couple hits in a win over the Cubs.
