Monday: White Sox (Jose Contreras) at Mariners (Jarrod Washburn), 1:05 p.m.

Sunday: Kansas City 6, Chicago 5

Batting recap: The competition for the fourth outfielder job for the White Sox continues to be a battle between ex-Arizona Diamondback Carlos Quentin and ex-Arizona Wildcat and Canyon del Oro High School grad Brian Anderson.

Quentin had a homer and a two-run double Sunday, but Anderson entered the game in the seventh and responded with his fourth home run an inning later.

Chicago’s Jim Thome went 2 for 4. Kansas City’s Ryan Shealy connected on his fourth home run of the spring.

Pitching recap: White Sox starter John Danks was roughed up and had a hard time finding the strike zone, giving up five runs on six hits and walking four in 4 1/3 innings. Royals starter Zach Greinke allowed two runs and four hits in six innings.

Notable: Chicago will add a bronze statue of longtime White Sox player Harold Baines at U.S. Cellular Field. Baines played for 22 years – mostly with Chicago, where he had 221 of his 384 homers and 981 of his 1,628 RBIs.

Quotable: “I feel like I put myself in a good position and hopefully made the decision a little bit tougher,” Chicago third baseman Josh Fields said about the competition for the starting third base job. “They have a tough decision to make. I think we are all waiting.”



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
