DENVER (AP) –Michael Kopech pitched the shutout in the sixth inning and the Chicago White Sox outscored the Colorado Rockies 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Yasmani Grandal had three hits in the Sox’s third straight win. Yoán Moncada overtook Adam Engel at home in the seventh.
All-Star closest Liam Hendriks worked a rocky ninth for his 19th save, giving up Ryan McMahon’s first homer. Pinched hitter Elias Díaz walked with two outs, but Hendriks rebounded shortstop Charlie Blackmon.
Hendriks has allowed at least one point in each of his last three outings.
Colorado spoiled a stellar performance by Germán Márquez (6-8), who allowed one run and seven hits over six innings. The right-hander has allowed five earned runs in his last 19 2/3 innings.
Kopech (4-6) worked on jams in the second and fifth and left after giving up six hits in 5 1/3 innings. Jimmy Lambert got two outs and Joe Kelly worked the seventh. Kendall Graveman pitched the eighth before Hendriks came on.
