 Carlos Rodon makes bumpy return from sprained wrist in loss to Twins

Carlos Rodon made his first start since July 5 on Sunday at Target Field, and White Sox manager Robin Ventura said the young left-hander had problems "knocking a little rust off" in a 6-4 loss to the Twins.

In his return from the disabled list and a sprained left wrist, Rodon gave up hits to four of the first five batters he faced in a three-run first inning. Robbie Grossman had an RBI double and Kennys Vargas hit a two-run homer.

"(The layoff) is not an excuse," Rodon said. "I've just got to be better. The team scores four runs, and I have to keep these guys to less than four. That's my job. I didn't do it today."

Jorge Polanco added an RBI double in the third, and Brian Dozier hit a solo home run off the bottom of the third deck in left field in the fifth. Dozier also homered in the seventh off reliever Carson Fulmer.

Rodon allowed five earned runs on eight hits in 61/3 innings to drop to 2-8 with a 4.67 ERA in 17 starts this year, and he said afterward he has higher expectations for himself.

"He's young, and not everybody gets it the first time through," Ventura said. "He's got some great stuff. You're going to have to find your way. That's part of what he's going through right now, trying to find your way and locate."

Melky Cabrera continued his hot streak, going 3-for-4 with a walk, a run and an RBI. He doubled with two outs in the ninth and advanced to third on a wild pitch, but Justin Morneau struck out.

The Twins committed four errors, and the Sox benefited from two of them in the two-run fourth. Tyler Saladino reached on Miguel Sano's throwing error, and after Omar Narvaez's RBI single drove in the first run, Saladino scored when Eddie Rosario's throw to third sailed into the stands. The Sox scored another run in the eighth on a fielding error by Polanco.

Todd Frazier was back after missing two games with the flu, and he filled in at first base for Jose Abreu, who has gone a career-high 30 straight games without a home run.

The Sox learned before the game that veteran reliever Zach Duke was traded to the Cardinals, a tough start to the morning, Frazier said.

"It's the business part, man," Frazier said. "Everybody loved him. He'll be missed. Maybe it took a little bit out. … (But) when the anthem is over you go play and think about it afterward."
