BREWERS 4, WHITE SOX 3
For the record: The Sox finally lost a game after winning three and tying two. Prospect Scott Snodgress gave up a two-run homer to Khris Davis and Addison Reed allowed a two-run homer to Josh Prince. Josh Bell homered in the ninth for the Sox.
Special K: Keenyn Walker, the Sox’ first pick (47th overall) in the 2011 draft, doubled, stole a base and threw out catcher Jonathan Lucroy from right field trying to score on a single.
Not bad for starters: Scott Snodgress made his second outing, this one a three-inning start. The Sox’ top lefty pitching prospect gave up two hits, one a two-run homer to Khris Davis.
“I felt great about it,’’ Snodgress said of his outing. “I hung that curveball and made a mistake there, but I’m going to learn from and hopefully not make that same mistake again. But other than that, I felt things were very good and an improvement from my last outing.”
On deck: At Indians, 2:05. Chris Sale pitches against Justin Masterson in a starting matchup of possible Opening Day starters. Masterson has already been announced as such.
