Eaton became the first White Sox leadoff hitter to start consecutive games with a homer since Alejandro De Aza on May 8 and 10, 2013. He's the first White Sox player to lead off with homers on consecutive days since Kenny Lofton in 2002. 

Eaton went 1 for 5 and reached five home runs and 14 RBI. 


White Sox OF Adam Eaton hits leadoff homer in win over Tigers


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

"It's a day that we needed," Eaton said, via MLB.com. "It's good to have a showing like that and to kind of battle back. We've been behind the eight ball in a sense when it comes to extra innings, offensively."

He now has a slash line of .253/.321/.375 this season.

White Sox's Adam Eaton looking for consistency at plate


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton said before Wednesday's game that he was looking for more consistency at the plate, MLB.com reports.

"I'm still searching for some more consistent at-bats," Eaton said Wednesday. "But at-bats like yesterday, where I can see six, seven, eight, nine pitches in an at-bat, I think when I'm going well, that's more consistent. It hasn't been that consistent."

Eaton smacked a home run on Tuesday after delivering a solid offensive performance during the month of May.

"His balance is a little bit better," manager Robin Ventura said of Eaton. "Power-wise, I don't think that's necessarily part of the game that comes with it. Balance-wise and being able to put it in play and utilize his speed more is what you expect out of him. Early on, he was not in balance, striking out a little bit more and not making contact and putting it in play. This is a little bit better."

Eaton has hit .233/.289/.354 with three home runs, eight RBI and one stolen base in 189 at-bats.

The home run was Eaton's only hit of the game, after a 1 for 3 performance in the first game. Despite his low .238 batting average, Eaton has now hit safely in 16 of his last 18 games.

White Sox's Adam Eaton picking things up in May


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton finished April with a .497 OPS, but he's shot out to a .294/.357/.431 line in 51 May at-bats.

Eaton is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak that includes three multihit performances and was started with a 4-for-5 outburst on May 11. He's also managed a pair of doubles and one triple in his last four games.

"When he's going good, we're a better team,'' manager Robin Ventura said, per MLB.com. "Any team that has a leadoff guy that's getting on, creating havoc when he gets on and becomes a tough out, you're a much better lineup because it's right before your best hitters come up. He can create a lot of uncomfortable situations for people by getting on and running around the bases.''

Eaton went 1 for 4 on Monday against the Indians and is set for six more games at home over the remainder of the week.


White Sox CF Adam Eaton collects four hits in loss on Monday

White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton believes offense will turn around


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton is confident the team is going to get out of their current funk at the plate, according to MLB.com.

Eaton, who came into Tuesday's game hitting just .192 on the year, is part of an offense ranking last in runs scored, runs per game, home runs and stolen bases.

"I do truly believe that," said Eaton. "I don't believe that it's going to stay there for very long. Baseball is a funny, funny game. Sometimes things are unexplainable. We are hoping it comes around sooner than later.

"At the end of the day, it's about getting them to be who they are as the hitting guy," hitting coach Todd Steverson said. "You have to fix up a few things and doctor up a few things here and there. But at the end of the day, it's making sure they are still confident in themselves to execute what everybody wants to see."

White Sox CF Adam Eaton off to sluggish start in 2015


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/1/2015) Fresh off a $23 million contract extension, White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton has struggled mightedly through the first month of the season. Eaton, who is now signed through at least 2019, is slashing a paltry .192/.241/.256 with only one stolen base on the year. As the South Siders' leadoff man, he's struck out 14 times and just five walks.

“I take it very personal when the offense isn’t really up and going like it should be,” Eaton said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s because I put a lot on myself because I’m the guy that’s at the beginning of the order that should get things going right now and I haven’t done that so far. I haven’t done much of anything so far. It kind of heats me up a little bit. With that being said, every day is an opportunity and I have to look at it that way and it’s the only way you can look at it.’’

He has also committed two errors in centerfield, including one on Thursday, after making a total of four in 2014.

Five ejected from White Sox-Royals Thursday after brawl


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) A comebacker by White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton to Royals starter Yordano Ventura for the final out in the seventh inning ignited a benches-clearing brawl in Thursday's game between the two teams, resulting in five players getting ejected.

Ventura could be seen mouthing an expletive to Eaton, taking apparent umbridge with the comebacker or something that Eaton may have said on his way to first base. After the ruckus was finally settled, the umpires ejected Ventura along with outfielder Lorenzo Cain and pitcher Edinson Volquez. White Sox starter Chris Sale and teammate Jeff Samardzija were also hit with ejections, ending the night of both starting pitchers in one fell swoop.

Ventura, who was ejected for the second time this season and is likely facing a lengthy suspension, finished the night with two earned runs on five hits and one walk in seven innings along with eight strikeouts.

Sale threw 70 of his 99 pitches for strikes but managed to rack up just two strikeouts before being ejected. He also allowed two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in seven innings of work.

Play resumed in the top of the eighth inning with the two teams tied 2-2.


White Sox OF Eaton takes bite out of Indians in Wednesday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) It has taken some time and it's not certain, but just perhaps White Sox leadoff hitter Adam Eaton is out of the doldrums at the plate.

He provided more evidence Wednesday with two hits and two runs against Cleveland. He singled and scored in both the third and seventh innings to raise his batting average to .196, its peak after the opener.

Eaton is on a season-high three-game hitting streak and is 5-for-12 during that time.


White Sox OF Eaton admits he's pressing to justify contract


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) White Sox leadoff hitter Adam Eaton has admitted that the $24 million contract he signed during the offseason has played a role in his poor performance at the plate so far.

"I tried to do too much," he told MLB.com.

Eaton, who singled to help his team rally to victory in the ninth inning Monday night against Cleveland, has been hitless is seven of 12 games to start the year. He owns a slash line of .149/.216/.191.

"He's an aggressive player, so that's a part of his personality and you have to be able to slow the game down enough just to play it instead of worrying about a contract or anything like that," manager Robin Ventura said. "The trust is there that he is a good player and he will play well and do those things. When it happens his first time, sometimes it can be difficult to go through, to have expectations like he has. You have to be able to learn how to just put that aside and play the game like you've been playing it all along."


Adam Eaton blows bunt, blows off steam after White Sox loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) White Sox leadoff hitter Adam Eaton is swinging the bat poorly to start the season, but he at least figured he could lay down a critical sacrifice bunt in the ninth inning Wednesday in Cleveland.

No dice. He struck out by fouling one off with runners on first and second and nobody out. The Sox stranded both in a 4-2 defeat.

"Its one of my frickin' strenghts," an angry Eaton told ESPN. "When [manager Robin Ventura] has confidence in me and I don't frickin' deliver, it's shame on me. I'm comfortable in that situation and I appreciate the confidence that he's instilled in me, and for me to not repay the confidence is crap, and I need to be better."

Eaton needs to be better all the way around at the plate. He has just four hits in 34 at-bats this season after going hitless against the Indians.
