  1. Flawless: Matt Cain throws a perfect game versus Astros

    Jun 14, 2012, 1:08 AM EDT

    Matt Cain

    Matt Cain turned in one of the most dominant performances in recent memory Wednesday night, going 27 up and 27 down against the Astros for the 22nd perfect game in MLB history. Cain was overpowering with 14 strikeouts, which ties Sandy Koufax for the most ever in a perfect game. And the Giants right-hander also…

  2. Adam Dunn scratched Wednesday due to slight ankle sprain

    From Mark D. Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune comes word that slugger Adam Dunn has been scratched from Wednesday night’s game against the Cardinals due to a “slightly” sprained left ankle. It’s obviously not a serious injury, but Dunn seems likely to remain sidelined for Thursday’s series finale in St. Louis given that the DH…

  3. Men’s Journal survey: A.J. Pierzynski is baseball’s most hated player. Philly has the most obnoxious fans

    Jun 13, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Barrett Pierzynski Getty

    Men’s Journal didn’t exactly get a scientific sample, but they did survey 100 ballplayers to find out who the most hated man in baseball is. Because he always tops such lists you will not be surprised to learn that A.J. Pierzynski tops this one too: In a Men’s Journal survey of 100 Major League Baseball players, White…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  5. AL All-Star voting updates

    All Star Game Logo

    The league just announced the latest in the All-Star Game voting for the American League. Here’s where it stands. The only particularly close race right now is for the third outfield slot, which is a three-way deal between Nelson Cruz, Jose Bautista and Adam Jones. Catcher Mike Napoli: 1,640,160 Joe Mauer: 912,997 First Base Prince…

  6. Philip Humber, April’s Mr. Perfect, could soon be bullpen bound

    Jun 10, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Philip Humber

    Philip Humber‘s rotation spot will likely be up for grabs with one more bad outing. After the right-hander gave up six runs — five earned — and three homers in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Astros on Sunday, manager Robin Ventura said that Humber would make one more start, but declined to…

  7. Chris Sale throws eight shutout innings, lowers ERA to 2.05

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:15 PM EDT

    chris sale getty

    We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: White Sox starter Chris Sale needs his own video game. The lanky left-hander threw eight innings of shutout ball on Saturday afternoon against the Astros, striking out seven and walking none as the Pale Hose rolled to a 10-1 victory. He now has a 0.92 WHIP,…

  8. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 8, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Norichika Aoki

    Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Norichika Aoki hit two homers including the walkoff. Overall, he’s kicking some major butt. Mets 3, Nationals 1: As I said yesterday: Dickey beats Wang. I’m still giggling, by the way. Pirates 5, Reds 4: Aroldis Chapman finally allowed a run. You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man, he’s a man!  Someone alert…

  9. White Sox place Kosuke Fukudome on DL, call up John Danks’ brother Jordan Danks

    Jun 7, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    jordan danks white sox

    Kosuke Fukudome needs a disabled list stint for his injured rib cage and the White Sox have called up Jordan Danks to replace him. In addition to being a 25-year-old outfield prospect Jordan Danks is also the little brother of White Sox left-hander John Danks. Jordan has mostly been a disappointment since the White Sox…

  10. Paul Konerko’s wrist procedure wasn’t any fun

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Paul Konerko

    Paul Konerko is sitting out his third straight game tonight, but hopes to be back Thursday or Friday. That’s pretty impressive, considering what he went through on Tuesday. Doctors didn’t actually remove it, though… they just flushed it into a different area in which it wouldn’t cause as many problems. An actual surgery to remove…

  11. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:51 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 7, Mets 6: The legend of Bryce Harper grows. A game-winning hit in the 12th inning. What say you, Harper? “I’m happy to get the W, of course. I’m happy to get that walk-off hit, but I don’t like going 2 for 7,” Harper said. “I don’t like striking out twice in one game,…

  12. Jarrod Parker’s no-hit bid broken up in the eighth inning

    Jun 5, 2012, 12:28 AM EDT

    Jarrod Parker AP

    UPDATE: Parker is done after eight shutout innings. He gave up just the one hit while throwing 69 out of 111 pitches for strikes and now owns a 2.40 ERA over his first eight starts with Oakland. If everything pans out the way the A’s hope, he’ll have many more chances at a no-no in…

  13. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 4, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Yankees 5, Tigers 1: If I were to tell you that one of this game’s starting pitchers — Justin Verlander or Phil Hughes — was going to toss a complete game, I’m guessing none of you would have guessed it would be Hughes.  But that he did, allowing one run on four hits. Verlander loses…

  14. You’re not gonna believe this, but Mike Trout and Bryce Harper were MLB Rookies of the Month

    Jun 3, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Mike Trout Getty

    Get used to this. From a bevy of MLB press releases that just filled my inbox: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout has been voted American League Rookie of the Month for May … Bryce Harper has been voted National League Rookie of the Month for May. Trout hit .324 (35-for-108) with six doubles, two triples,…

  15. Ichiro hit two homers yesterday

    Jun 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Ichiro is not a power hitter. He has just 98 homers in his career. Two of them came last night, however, as he hit two solo shots off Gavin Floyd to help the M’s — who suddenly have a ton of offense — beat the White Sox 10-8. Ichiro, who was recently moved to the…

  16. Joe Maddon: people throw at us intentionally; we never do it

    May 31, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Joe Maddon Getty

    A commenter said yesterday that Joe Maddon often accuses other teams of throwing at his players but that he has never even once hinted that the Rays do the same. Here he was on a radio show yesterday talking about the Red Sox doing just that — and the Red Sox doing nothing — over…

  17. Hawk Harrelson goes crazy

    May 30, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    hawk harrelson

    In today’s Rays-White Sox game, A.J. Pierzynski got plunked. Later, be it by coincidence or not, Jose Quintana threw one at Ben Zobrist and was immediately ejected by umpire Mark Wegner. Then White Sox announcer Hawk Harrelson went crazy: UPDATE: MLB pulled the You Tube video, but they have it over at MLB.com, with complete Hawk…

  18. White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper thinks you should shut up about pitch counts

    May 30, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Don Cooper

    Chris Sale throwing 115 pitches in his dominant, 15-strikeout start Monday has led to some talk about whether the White Sox were smart to let him stay in the game that long considering it was his ninth career start and came just weeks after temporarily shifting him to the bullpen amid elbow problems. White Sox…

  19. R.A. Dickey, Paul Konerko named players of the week

    May 29, 2012, 5:03 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    The Player of the Week Awards came out, and the winners are R.A. Dickey in the NL and Paul Konerko in the AL. Dickey was 2-0 in two starts, striking out 21 batters and allowing a single earned run in 14 and a third innings pitched for a 0.63 ERA for the week. No surprise at all…

  20. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 29, 2012, 5:47 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    White Sox 2, Rays 1: Chris Sale: 15Ks and three hits in seven and a third. Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer. Red Sox 7, Tigers 4: Jim Leyland said that we saw what we saw and should write what we saw, so let’s do that: The Red Sox’ second inning rally never should have happened…

  21. Chris Sale strikes out 15 in win over Rays

    May 28, 2012, 5:58 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Making his first ever start in Florida, Lakeland native Chris Sale struck out 15 batters while limiting the Rays to one run and three hits in 7 1/3 innings in the White Sox’s 2-1 victory Monday. An Adam Dunn homer, his 16th of the year, was responsible for both White Sox runs. Sale, a first-round…

  22. Paul Konerko hitting .466 with 6 homers in his last 20 games

    May 28, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    Paul Konerko is on a ridiculous tear right now, hitting .466 with six homers and a 1.303 OPS in his last 20 games dating back to May 4. Even more amazing is that sitting out three days in the middle of that stretch after taking a Jeff Samardzija pitch to the face didn’t slow him…

  23. A.J. Ellis: All-Star?

    May 27, 2012, 10:48 AM EDT

    aj ellis ap

    The Dodgers picked up their MLB-best 31st victory on Saturday when catcher A.J. Ellis hit a walkoff three-run shot against the Astros’ Wesley Wright. The heroics are nothing new this year for Ellis. A 31-year-old former 18th-round pick, he’s batting .317/.442/.517 with five home runs, seven doubles and 23 RBI through 149 plate appearances. And…

  24. Indians to place Carlos Santana on 7-day concussion disabled list

    Carlos Santana Getty

    The first-place Indians will have to get by without another important piece of their lineup. Nick Camino of WTAM in Cleveland reports that the Indians will place Carlos Santana on MLB’s seven-day disabled list for concussions. The 26-year-old backstop left last night’s game in the eighth inning after a foul ball off Alex Rios‘ bat…

  25. Josh Hamilton homers for first time since May 12

    May 25, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton AP

    Josh Hamilton‘s home run drought is finally over. And yes, I write that with tongue firmly planted in cheek. After Aaron mentioned this morning that Hamilton hadn’t homered in nearly two weeks, the Rangers’ slugger went deep in the bottom of the second inning tonight against the Blue Jays. His solo shot off right-hander Carlos…
