The Chicago White Sox squandered an early lead and fell 5-4 to the Boston Red Sox on Monday in the opener of a three-game series.

White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija could not contain the Red Sox’s Rusney Castillo, who had five RBIs in the first six innings. Jose Abreuhit a home run for the second consecutive game, a first-inning shot that was his 24th of the season. Red Sox starter Joe Kelly gave up two runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings to win his fifth consecutive start. The White Sox rallied with two runs in the bottom of the ninth, but the comeback fell just short.

The White Sox hoped to make up ground with some sub-.500 teams on the schedule, but they are just 2-2 over the first four games of the 10-game stretch. The White Sox fell to 58-64 on the season and need to go 23-17 the rest of the way in order to finish at least a .500 on the season, which would be a eight-game improvement from last season.

The July 31 non-waiver trade deadline continues to be the turning point in Samardzija’s season. He had delivered 10-consecutive starts of at least seven innings at that point, but since then he has lost all five of his August starts. In a rough month, the right-hander has pitched 28 innings and given up 28 earned runs, with seven home runs allowed.

It doesn’t take long for a game to get away from you as Samardzija showed in the second inning. After hitting Hanley Ramirez with a pitch in the left kidney area, Samardzija than gave up a single to Brock Holt. Castillo followed with what appeared to be a wind-aided three-run home run to center field and the White Sox never led again. Just how many pitches did the sequence take? The Red Sox went from trailing 1-0, with nobody on base, into the lead for good in a mere six pitches.

The White Sox will send LH Jose Quintana (7-10, 3.60 ERA) to the mound Tuesday in the middle game of the three-game series. The Red Sox will counter with left-hander Wade Miley (10-9, 4.41) in the 7:10 p.m. CT start from U.S. Cellular Field.

Danny Salazar hadn’t put together more than two straight quality starts prior to the All-Star break before his current hot stretch helped bring his ERA to its lowest point since April.

Salazar (10-6, 3.26 ERA) ranks among the major league leaders in strikeouts per nine innings at 10.24, but he’d had some trouble with consistency until recently.

His ERA is his best since it was 2.08 following his second start after improving to 2-0 with a 0.84 ERA over his last three with eight strikeouts over 7 1-3 innings of Wednesday’s 2-1 win against the New York Yankees.

Salazar has a 1.48 ERA while holding opponents to a .144 batting average during a stretch of six straight quality starts.

In his most recent outing, Barnes pitched 0.0 inning, giving up one run and walking one in a 5-1 loss to the Yankees. David Ortiz (.263, 53 Rs, 25 HRs, 73 RBIs) went 1 for 4 yesterday with one RBI. The Indians were victorious the last time Salazar pitched. He had a good outing, pitching 7.1 innings, allowing one run, striking out eight and walking five in a 2-1 victory over the Yankees.

Boston is a +110 underdog in this game and the Over/Under (O/U) is nine runs. When playing as the underdog, the Red Sox have a 21-27 record and overall money line at -1,871. Over their past 10 games, Boston’s offense has been playing lights out, averaging 7.3 runs per game, well over their season average of 4.5.

Injuries:
Indians
 – RHP Cody Anderson (left oblique), 2B Jason Kipnis (right shoulder), LHP TJ House (left shoulder), LHP Nick Hagadone (left elbow) and RHP Gavin Floyd (right elbow) are on the disabled list. OF Michael Brantley (left shoulder), INF Chris Johnson (insect bite) are day to day.

Xander Bogaerts hit a two-run double in the third inning to open the scoring and Brock Holt added an RBI single in the fifth for a 3-0 score. Josh Donaldson got the Blue Jays on the board with a run-scoring double in the sixth inning.

Mookie Betts finished 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and Alejandro De Aza recorded three hits for the Red Sox, who won for the seventh time in the last 11 games and received a fine outing from starting pitcher Clay Buchholz. Buchholz limited the Jays to a run in eight innings, struck out five and did not walk a batter.

The Blue Jays had won 18 of their previous 24 games and are still one game off the lead in the AL East. Baltimore and Tampa Bay are in a virtual tie for first and New York is just a half-game behind

The Blue Jays have won each of Marco Estrada’s last five starts and look to keep the streak going Tuesday
Estrada is 5-3 with a 3.45 earned run average in 16 games (10 starts) and won both of his starts against Boston this season. In four career games (2 starts) against the Red Sox, Estrada is 2-1 with a 4.58 ERA.
