Flowers continues to work on consistency at plate


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The White Sox first home run of Cactus League action came from Tyler Flowers leading off the fourth against the Dodgers' Stephen Fife. It was a laser down the left-field line, which followed his popout to first base in the second.

Flowers was satisfied with the result, but certainly wasn't basing anything on an early Spring Training result.

"It was an OK at-bat. I had a couple of not-good takes and didn't really see it well except for a couple of pitches," Flowers said. "The result is good, but there is definitely more work to be done. I have to be more consistent with where I was on that last swing vs. pretty much the entire at-bat."

A primary goal for Flowers early on in camp is simply to stay consistent with his approach.

"My hands have been an issue getting in the way sometimes," Flowers said. "We've been working on it day in and day out, but it's good to get into a game and see what happens with live pitching when you can't really think about it. It just reiterates the point that there is a lot to do to get that to being consistent."
