The Chicago White Sox made first year manager Robin Ventura a winner in his first home opener in the Windy City since 1998. The White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers on Friday 5-2.
Chicago improved to 4-2 overall, while the division favorites from Detroit fell to 5-2.
Jake Peavy pitched effectively into the seventh inning and Dayan Viciedo homered and made a key catch for the Sox. Peavy (1-0) took a one-hitter and a 3-0 lead into the seventh.
Former Cal Poly star Brent Morel started at third base and hit second for the White Sox. He went 1 for 3 in the game and drove in a run with a basehit in the eighth inning to add an insurance run.
Many in the sellout crowd of 38,676 at U.S. Cellular Field gave Ventura a standing ovation when he was introduced during the pregame ceremony.
