Sox Lose Friday to Former ‘Mate…

I’m back with more news and notes from White Sox camp in Arizona. We begin with a former Knights and Sox pitcher…

Daniel Hudson (2009-10 Knights) was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the fifth-round of the 2008 draft. On Friday, Hudson faced his former ‘mates and earned a win for his team.

Chicago lost for the tenth time in 13 tries this spring, as they fell to the Arizona Diamondbacks and Hudson by a score of 4-2 on Friday. Hudson allowed two runs on two hits over four innings for his first win of the spring. The Virginia native fanned six batters.

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of the day:

Brian Bruney (2011 w/Knights)
Bruney continued to be lights-out this spring — tossing two scoreless innings against the D-backs on Friday. He allowed just one hit and struck-out one batter.

In four games this spring, Bruney, 30, has allowed just two hits over five scoreless innings. The Oregon native has fanned seven batters over that span and has been one of the sharpest pitchers in the Chicago bullpen thus far.

Last season, Bruney went 1-0 with a 1.31 ERA in 19 games for the Knights. A veteran of eight Major League seasons, Bruney also notched seven saves while with Charlotte a season ago.

Eric Stults
Stults is another Sox reliever who has been extremely effective this spring. The lefty tossed a scoreless inning on Friday, and he too has not allowed a run this spring in five innings pitched.

The Sox had just four hits and two runs on the day, and both of the runs were driven in by starter John Danks. Danks was 1-1 at the plate and allowed four runs, three earned, over four innings of work. He was saddled with the loss and is now 0-3 this spring.
