White Sox go for fourth straight win

May 12, 2007 - 1:18 PM Kansas City (11-25) at Chi White Sox (17-15) 7:05 pm EDT

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The Chicago White Sox haven't figured out how to hit, but they sure can pitch.

The White Sox will be looking for another strong start when they host the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.

Chicago ranks last in the major leagues with a .223 team batting average, but has gotten strong starts from Jose Contreras and Jon Garland over the past two games. Garland pitched 8 1/3 innings and allowed one run in a win last Friday against the Royals.

Mark Buehrle (2-1, 3.22 ERA) looks to continue the trend. The veteran lefthander has yet to allow more than three runs in any start this season, but has not earned a win since April 23 at Kansas City.

In that start, Buehrle held the Royals to three runs and five hits in seven innings in a 7-4 win.

Kansas City will counter with righthander Scott Elarton. The 31-year-old is making his first start of the 2007 campaign after beinning the year on the disabled list while recovering from right shoulder surgery.

The former first-round draft pick made 20 starts in 2006, compiling a 4-9 record with a 5.34 ERA. He owns a 2-4 career mark in 13 games - 10 starts - against the White Sox with a 3.73 ERA.
