Recap - Pomeranz a lone bright spot in loss to Chicago

Apparently Nathan Eovaldi's side session with Pedro Martinez wasn't quite enough.

And a two-hour rain delay probably didn't help either.

The Red Sox were held to just five hits by four White Sox pitchers as they fell to Chicago 6-1 Friday night.

Eovaldi (pictured) hit the first batter he faced, and then gave up an RBI double to left to put the White Sox up 1-0. One out later, Yoan Moncada made it 3-0 with his 17th home run of the year.

Former Red Sox prospect Michael Kopech started for Chicago and held Boston to just one hit over three innings before rain delayed the game. Kopech and Moncada were part of the package that Boston sent to the White Sox in the Chris Sale trade.

The only Red Sox run came on an Andrew Benintendi solo home run in the top of the eighth inning.

Drew Pomeranz was one of the few positives Friday night throwing four scoreless innings of relief. He allowed seven hits but didn't walk anyone. Meanwhile, Tyler Thornburg provided a less-than-stellar inning of relief, allowing three runs on three hits and a pair of walks.
