Rizzo also walked and scored when Castro connected in the fourth. Castro went 1 for 15 with two walks during the Cubs‘ losing streak.

Carroll departed after Olt and Lake started the fifth with consecutive singles. The 29-year-old rookie was charged with 11 hits and six runs after he pitched well in each of his first two major league starts.

“It was just a situation where I didn’t have my best stuff tonight,” Carroll said. “I left a few pitches up when I obviously didn’t have the ability to do so. Kind of just fighting it the whole time.”

The White Sox got two runs back in the fourth on RBI singles by Gillaspie and Tyler Flowers. But five Cubs relievers combined for five innings of one-run ball after Jake Arrieta’s shaky outing. Brian Schlitter (2-0) got five outs for the win.

Arrieta allowed four runs, three earned, and nine hits in four innings. He pitched 5 1-3 scoreless innings in a no-decision against St. Louis on Saturday in his first start of the season.

NOTES: White Sox ace Chris Sale (left arm) felt fine after throwing a bullpen session Wednesday, and Ventura said the left-hander probably will throw again on Saturday. “He’s progressing. He doesn’t feel anything,” Ventura said. “In talking to him, he says everything feels good.” Ventura said he thinks the team will have a better idea this weekend about a rehab schedule for Sale. … Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Jeff Samardzija’s 126 pitches on Monday night “is just a story that should probably die.” He said the front office, Renteria and Samardzija are all on the same page. … The Cubs send RHP Jason Hammel (4-1, 2.43 ERA) to the mound when they open a weekend series at Atlanta on Friday night. RHP Julio Teheran (2-2, 1.80 ERA) is slated to pitch for the Braves.
