Civale (11-5) was charged with the loss during the front end of Thursday's twin bill against the White Sox. He surrendered seven runs on seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out three across 1.2 innings.
After firing six scoreless innings against the Yankees last week, Civale took an immediate hit against the White Sox, starting with a leadoff home run by Tim Anderson. The second inning proved to be disastrous as the right-hander gave up back-to-back homers to Luis Robert and Eloy Jimenez before Tim Anderson came through with his second long ball of the day. It was an unusual clunker for Civale, whose earned seven runs allowed were a season-worst. The 26-year-old has compiled a strong 3.90 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the year and will look to get back on track during his next projected start Wednesday at Kansas City.
