Pirates shut out Sox

Trevor Williams scattered six hits in seven innings, Adam Frazier homered to start a four-run first, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the White Sox 7-0 Tuesday night to send Chicago to its worst start since 1948. Chicago has lost eight of nine and 12 of 14, dropping to a major league-worst 10-28. The White Sox have matched the poorest 38-game start in team history. Williams (5-2) struck out six and walked none in his longest outing of the season. Kyle Crick and Richard Rodriguez completed the seven-hitter for Pittsburgh’s major league league-best seventh shutout. Josh Bell doubled twice and drove in three runs, Sean Rodriguez had an RBI triple, and Colin Moran and Gregory Polanco each added run-scoring doubles. Reynaldo Lopez (0-3) gave up six runs and seven hits with two walks in two-plus innings.
