E-Rod K's 10 of first 12 batters in return from DL

CHICAGO — Red Sox Manager Alex Cora wasn’t exactly certain what he would get out of Eduardo Rodriguez on Saturday night. It didn’t take long for Rodriguez to give Cora his answer.

In his first Major League start since July 14, Rodriguez struck out a season-high 12 hitters and began his outing with four perfect innings against the White Sox before departing with a 2-1 lead with two outs in the sixth inning.

Rodriguez came within one strikeout of his career high of 13, which came against the Rays on Sept. 25, 2016, and finished Saturday’s impressive start by allowing one run on three hits while yielding only one walk. He threw 60 of his 90 pitches for strikes.

Rodriguez, who was on the disabled list with a right ankle sprain until his activation on Saturday, struck out the first three hitters he faced and 10 of his first 12. He allowed his first hit in the fifth inning, when Matt Davidson dropped a bloop single over the glove of second baseman Ian Kinsler. He departed after allowing a RBI double to Nicky Delmonico.
