The one ineffective Jake (updated)

I wouldn't look for a quality start from Jake Arrieta tonight.

He's allowed three runs, which still makes it possible, but he's also thrown a ton of pitches.

Arrieta threw 350 in the first inning - or maybe it was 35. He was up to 70 after the third, and the White Sox held a 3-0 lead.

Arrieta allowed five hits and walked three batters. He also was charged with one bad mustache.

Instant update: Arrieta gave up another run with two outs in the fourth inning. He gets ahead in the count, but can't put these guys away.

Down on the farm, Triple-A Norfolk's Chris Tillman was charged with six runs (four earned) and eight hits in 2 2/3 innings before Jim Hoey replaced him.

Double-A Bowie's Joel Guzman hit his 30th home run and has driven in four runs.

Third-round pick Daniel Klein struck out two in a perfect seventh inning with short-season Single-A Aberdeen. He's come back out for the eighth.
