Dodgers’ Gavin Stone shuts out White Sox to cap sweep

Dodgers, White Sox

Rookie Gavin Stone pitched a four-hit shutout and Shohei Ohtani smacked his National League-best 25th home run as the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox 4-0 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep.

Stone stymied the White Sox on a career night. He never had pitched more than seven innings in 18 previous starts but proved to get stronger as the game progressed.

Stone (9-2) didn’t walk a batter and struck out seven to match his career high. He set down 10 and nine straight White Sox, during separate stretches as the Dodgers ran their winning streak to four games.

Chicago went 0-for-17 with runners in scoring position during the series, getting outscored 11-3. The White Sox have lost five home games in a row and seven of eight overall.

Ohtani set a franchise record by driving in at least one run for a 10th successive game. He snapped a tie with four other Dodgers who collected RBIs in nine straight games.

Ohtani began the game with his ninth career leadoff home run — his second in as many days. He started Los Angeles’ 4-3 victory on Tuesday with a shot against Chicago’s Chris Flexen.

White Sox starter Erick Fedde (5-3) scattered four runs and five hits in six innings with one walk and five strikeouts. Fedde retired the final eight Dodgers he faced, but the trouble he encountered in the middle of his outing proved too much to surmount.

Los Angeles loaded the bases to start the third inning. Teoscar Hernandez’s sacrifice fly gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead before Freddie Freeman followed with a two-run double to the right field corner.

Chicago struggled to mount an attack against Stone, who yielded one extra-base hit — Gavin Sheets’ double leading off the second — while throwing 73 of his 103 pitches for strikes.

Sheets later left the game due to a bruised left heel. X-rays were negative, and he is day-to-day.

Miguel Rojas had two hits for the Dodgers.

Michael Soroka struck out seven in three innings of scoreless relief for the White Sox.

A crowd of 36,225 attended the game, Chicago’s first sellout of the season. White Sox manager Pedro Grifol was ejected before the top of the sixth.
