CHICAGO (AP) - Trea Turner homered in the second straight game, Aníbal Sánchez pitched into the seventh and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago White Sox 12-1 Monday night.
The game had a scary moment when a woman was struck by a foul ball off the bat of White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez. He hit a hard liner into the stands in the fourth inning just beyond Chicago's dugout on the third base side. The woman was sitting several rows from the field. She was bleeding around the head area, and was covered with a towel.
She walked up toward the concourse with assistance of stadium personnel. She was taken to a hospital for evaluation. She was alert and communicative. Protective netting extends to the end of the dugouts.
Turner tripled and scored in the third, went deep against Odrisamer Despaigne leading off the fifth and added an RBI double in the seventh. Sánchez (2-6) gave up one run and four hits.
Adam Eaton had three hits, including an RBI single. Kurt Suzuki added a grand slam during a six-run ninth and had five RBIs to help the Nationals win for the 12th time in 16 games.
Leury García hit a solo homer for Chicago in the sixth inning.
