CHICAGO – Jose Abreu drove in four runs and set a major league rookie record for RBIs through the end of April and the White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 9-2, on Sunday.
Abreu, who had a two-run home run in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh, has 31 RBIs. Albert Pujols had the previous RBI mark of 27 in 2001.
The homer was his major league-leading 10th and extended his own record for home runs by a rookie through April.
In his major league debut, Scott Carroll (1-0) gave up two runs, one earned, in 7 1-3 innings after he was called up from Triple-A Charlotte to fill in for injured ace Chris Sale.
Rays starter David Price (3-2) allowed eight runs, six earned, in six innings.
