Eloy Jimenez dropped out of the White Sox game with groin tightness

ATLANTA — White Sox right winger Eloy Jimenez left the team's game against the Braves Sunday with a left groin strain. He is being evaluated further, the Sox said.

Jimenez pitched a third to second to first double play in the first inning against southpaw Kolby Allard and played his position in the bottom of the inning. Gavin Sheets pinch hit Jimenez in the second inning.

The No.4 hitter in manager Pedro Grifol's line-up, Jimenez is hitting .270/.314/.465 in 62 of the Sox's 85 games this season.

The Sox led 6-1 after scoring four touchdowns in the second inning against Allard, surrendering Jake Burger's 21st homer and second in two games and single RBIs to Tim Anderson and Luis Robert Jr. Allard left the game with a sore shoulder after Robert's goal made it 4-0.

The Braves made it 4-1 in the third set on Matt Olson's RBI singles against Dylan Halt. RBI singles by Andrew Benintendi and Sheets increased the Sox' lead to 6-1 in the fourth quarter.

The Sox (39-55) are seeking their first series win since they won two of three games against the Red Sox June 24-25 in Chicago. The Braves haven't lost in a draw since losing two of three at the Oakland Athletics May 29-31.
