Nicholas Castellanos busted out of his slump in a big way.
Castellanos homered twice and Jose Iglesias hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Detroit’s two-run eighth Diontae Johnson Jersey , helping the Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 7-5 on Saturday for their fourth straight win.
Castellanos hit a three-run drive in the third and a two-run shot in the fifth. It was his first multihomer game since Aug. 22 against the Yankees and fourth of his career.
The slugger went 1 for 21 with eight strikeouts in his previous five games.
”The ball jumped out of the ballpark,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. ”He hit one opposite. He can do that. When he starts getting away from that, starts pulling too much, he can struggle. Him going the other way is a good sign that he’s gonna be able to drive the ball both ways.”
The Tigers blew a 5-0 lead but recovered in time to improve to 7-1 against the White Sox this season. Buck Farmer (3-3) pitched a scoreless inning for the win.
Charlie Tilson drove in two runs for Chicago, which has dropped three in a row. Kevan Smith had two hits and scored a run.
Tilson hit a two-run single off Jordan Zimmermann in the fifth and Jose Abreu tied it at 5 with a sacrifice fly in the sixth Justin Layne Jersey , but the Tigers went ahead to stay in the eighth.
Victor Martinez sparked the winning rally with a leadoff single against Jace Fry (0-1). Bruce Rondon then came in and walked John Hicks. JaCoby Jones popped up a bunt and Rondon dove for the ball, but it trickled out of his glove to load the bases.
With the infield playing in, Iglesias hit a dribbler up the middle that bounced off second baseman Yoan Moncada’s glove for a run-scoring infield hit. Rondon then threw four straight balls to Niko Goodrum, forcing in another run.
”Bruce ran into a little trouble,” Chicago manager Rick Renteria said. ”Great diving attempt on the catch and it came out of his glove onto the ground Benny Snell Jr. Jersey , causing a fumble.”
Shane Greene worked the ninth for his 19th save and fourth in four days.
Lucas Giolito pitched 5 1/3 innings for Chicago, allowing five runs and six hits. The right-hander is just 1-3 in his last five starts.
”Two bad pitches to a really good hitter kind of did me in for the game right there,” Giolito said. ”I’ve just gotta kinda lock in a little bit more.”
Zimmermann was charged with four runs and four hits in five innings in his first start after missing six weeks with a right shoulder impingement. He retired his first 12 batters before the White Sox broke through in the fifth.
”I got a little out of whack in the stretch,” Zimmermann said. ”It was the first time all game I was there. They started swinging early, too Zach Gentry Jersey , and we just didn’t make the adjustments quite quick enough.”
To make room for Zimmermann on the active roster, right-hander Artie Lewicki was optioned to Triple-A Toledo.
Iglesias arrived late for the opener on Friday because he was sworn in as a naturalized U.S. citizen earlier in the day in Detroit. The 28-year-old infielder was born in Cuba and signed as an amateur free agent with the Boston Red Sox in 2009.
”Yesterday I got in about 5 or 5:30, all the way from Detroit,” Iglesias said. ”But it was worth it.”
Tigers: LHP Francisco Liriano (right hamstring strain) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.
White Sox: OF Leury Garcia (left knee sprain) was scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday night. … OF Avisail Garcia (right hamstring strain) will continue his rehab assignment with Charlotte on Sunday following a day off on Saturday. … RHP Miguel Gonzalez (rotator cuff inflammation) threw 25 pitches off the mound in his most rigorous workout since going on the DL in April.
LHP Blaine Hardy (2-1, 3.55 ERA) takes the mound as the Tigers go for the sweep on Sunday. Hardy has allowed two runs or less in five of his six starts. James Shields (2-7 Melvin Gordon III Jersey , 4.63 ERA) goes for the White Sox.
Every NFL team looks to the quarterback position to lead them to a championship and carry their franchise for many years. The problem is that for every Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in the league, there has been a Tim Couch and Ryan Leaf. Franchise quarterbacks are hard to come by and sometimes takes a lot of luck to land the right one. Teams like the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers seem to have no problem transitioning from one Hall of Fame quarterback to the next, while the Cleveland Browns have yet to find one since returning to town. Whether you draft a quarterback in the first round or 6th round of the NFL draft, it is no guarantee that either one will pan out to become a superstar.Many factors go into consideration when labeling a quarterback as a draft bust. For instance, San Diego Chargers 2nd overall pick in 1998 Ryan Leaf was a product of both horrendous play on the field Joey Bosa Jersey , as well as off the field issues that included criminal charges and time in prison. However, most quarterback busts are normally only graced with one major factor leading to becoming a bust.Any quarterback can look great in a college offense, but the game completely changes once he steps foot in the NFL. Players often say the biggest difference between college and the NFL is the speed of the game. Some players can keep up the pace while others fall behind and out of the league quickly.Some busts have been more devastating than others to a franchise, but it is always a hard pill to swallow when a young promising talent sets a team backwards instead of forward.Here are the 15 biggest quarterback busts since 2000:
