ON THE MOUND: A pristine outing for Kenta Maeda was sullied, ever so slightly, in the fifth inning. He had held the White Sox to only two hits in the first four frames. But he gave up a double and a single before departing with one out in the next inning. One run scored, which brought Maeda's Cactus League earned-run average to 3.75. "I'm pretty happy with where I am," Maeda said. He will make one more longer outing, aiming for six innings, before a tuneup start to prepare him for pitching in the same game of the regular season.
