SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Gavin Sheets doubled twice and drove in two runs, and the Chicago White Sox held on for a 5-3 victory against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Dylan Cease allowed one run in five innings for his third consecutive win. The major league leader in strikeouts per nine innings, Cease (7-3) had only four against San Francisco – his fewest since May 24 – and overcame LaMonte Wade Jr.

’s home run leading off the first to improve to 4-1 in seven road starts.

Tanner Banks followed Cease with two scoreless innings. Joe Kelly retired three hitters and Kendall Graveman pitched the ninth for his fifth save.

Tim Anderson added two hits for Chicago. Yoán Moncada and Leury García each drove in runs as the White Sox beat the Giants for the 10th time in 12 games.

San Francisco scored a run in the ninth and had the tying runners on base with two outs before Graveman got Mike Yastrzemski to ground out.

After Anderson’s infield single leading off the fourth, Andrew Vaughn reached on a fielding error by Giants first baseman Brandon Belt. Sheets followed with a double over the head of left fielder Joc Pederson after Pederson initially broke in on the ball. Moncada followed with an RBI single past a drawn-in infield.

García, who delivered the game-winning hit in Friday’s 1-0 win, drove in a run with a fielder’s choice grounder in the sixth. A second run scored on the play when shortstop Donovan Walton’s throw sailed over the head of pitcher Logan Webb, who was covering first base.

Webb (7-3) allowed six hits and five runs (three earned) in six innings. He struck out five and walked one.

Wade homered on Cease’s second pitch of the game – on LaMonte Wade Jr. Bobblehead Day at Oracle Park. It’s the third career leadoff home run for Wade.

The Giants have lost 9 of 12.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox: RHP Liam Hendriks (forearm strain), who threw a simulated game on Friday, is expected to be activated from the Injured List on Monday. … OF Adam Engel (right hamstring strain) continues to do some running and has not suffered any setbacks.

Red Sox take gamble on controversial former Mets, Phillies reliever

The Boston Red Sox have had bullpen issues all season, and they’re seemingly looking to fix that by signing a controversial reliever.

The Boston Red Sox have had persistent trouble with their bullpen all season, and they seem to be addressing that by signing former New York Mets reliever Jeurys Familia.

Familia will begin his journey with the Red Sox in their farm system at Triple-A.

The Red Sox have signed veteran reliever Jeurys Familia and he will join the WooSox today in Scranton/WB.  The 32-year-old has spent 11 seasons in the majors mostly with the New York Mets where he had 94 saves combined during the 2015 & 2016 seasons.

— Joe McDonald (@JoeyMacHockey) August 9, 2022

Familia has played nearly all his career seasons with the Mets, but played briefly with the Oakland Athletics in 2018 and played with the Philadelphia Phillies this season.

The 32-year-old reliever has been inconsistent throughout his entire career, and he’s currently having a bad season.

However, the bullpen needs whatever help it can potentially get.

Red Sox: Jeurys Familia’s struggles and off-field behavior make for questionable deal

Familia isn’t likely to help the bullpen this season. He’s having his worst season yet and has produced an ERA of 6.09, a batting average against of .338, and a WHIP of 1.85. He’s never been consistently good and is unpredictable each season. However, he has had some really good seasons.

His best seasons were in 2015 and 2016 when he had 94 saves combined. In 2015, he had an extremely good season with an ERA of 1.85, a BAA of .207, and a WHIP of 1.00. He hasn’t been able to repeat that success, unfortunately.

What makes the signing look worse given his struggles on the mound is Familia’s off-field behavior. In 2016, he was arrested on domestic violence charges in New Jersey. Charges were dismissed but he still served a 15-game suspension after MLB investigated the incident.

For a season in Boston that has been full of bad moves, adding a reliever with a history connected to domestic violence and who hasn’t been good when on the field lately isn’t going to make being a Red Sox fan any easier to stomach.
