Jackson Chourio, Brewers add to White Sox’s losing streak

Jackson Chourio

Rookie Jackson Chourio belted a three-run homer and the Milwaukee Brewers completed a three-game sweep with a 6-3 victory over the visiting White Sox on Sunday, extending Chicago’s season-high losing streak to 11 games.

The White Sox have lost 11 straight for the first time since 1956. Chicago has lost 15 of its last 16 games and 17 of 20.

The Brewers, winners of five straight, erased a 2-0 deficit with four runs after two outs in the second, capped by Chourio’s three-run homer. Joey Ortiz singled with two outs and Jake Bauers followed with an RBI double to right. Gary Sanchez was hit by a pitch. Chourio, who entered the game hitting .207, then jumped on the first pitch for his sixth homer, and first since May 15.

Paul DeJong opened the fourth inning with his ninth homer to pull Chicago within 4-3.

The White Sox ran themselves out of a rally in the eighth. Dominic Fletcher and Tommy Pham opened with consecutive walks. Pinch runner Zach Remillard was out at third trying to steal. Nicky Lopez followed with a ground-rule double to right-center, holding Pham at third. Corey Julks flied out, and left fielder Christian Yelich threw out Pham at home to end the inning.

Milwaukee made it 6-3 in the eighth on Sanchez’s bases-loaded, two-run single.

Brewers starter Freddy Peralta (4-3) overcame a 43-pitch first inning to make it through five innings. Peralta allowed three runs on four hits, striking out seven and walking one for his first victory in six starts since April 30. Kevin Herget followed with two scoreless innings, and Enoli Paredes finished for his first save.

Rookie Nick Nastrini (0-5) allowed four runs on three hits in four innings, walking three and striking out one.

The White Sox jumped on Peralta for two runs in the lengthy first. Lopez and Julks reached on consecutive one-out singles and both advanced on a wild pitch. Gavin Sheets followed with an RBI single and DeJong delivered a sacrifice fly to right.

Fletcher prevented a three-run homer in the seventh with a leaping grab above the wall on a drive by William Contreras.
