Chris Sale's performance Sunday was peculiar: he gave up five hits in five-plus innings...but all five hits went for extra bases. It's more of an oddity than it is a concern (in his first start, he allowed three hits, all singles), so just for fun, let's look at Sale's outing along with the previous five times a Sox starter had a game like it (5 hits; no singles)
- DeLeon was the only winning pitcher; the other five were on the losing end.
- In Eyre's next start (May 12, 1998), he allowed four hits in 5 23 IP - all singles.
- Schueler was the White Sox' pitching coach when Dotson pitched his game, and later took over as Sox GM.
- Kaat was the last with 6 Hits6 XBH.
