When they entered their 12th game of the season, the White Sox made their third relay exchange with Charlotte.
This time, it's a LOOGY exchange. Up appears Josh Osich and then Caleb Frare when the White Sox look for a more reliable shot putter from the left side. Officer Osich retired five of the six lefties he faced this season, walking one and striking out one.
Frare, on the other hand, had major problems in launching strikes. He allowed two hits, three walks and two uncontrolled pitches in just 2⅔ innings. He threw only 26 of his 49 shots for strikes, hampered by two starts in which he had no idea where the ball was going. Your mission in Charlotte will be quite clear.
