    Trailing 6-0 in the bottom of the ninth, the Tigers rallied for six runs against the White Sox bullpen to send the game into extra innings. They pushed across a bases-loaded run for the walk-off win in the 12th inning, reducing their magic number over the Indians in the AL Central to two. Tigers starter…

  6. White Sox promote infielder Marcus Semien to Triple-A

    Aug 1, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Marcus Semien

    The White Sox still don’t know exactly what they have in Marcus Semien, but they’re moving a little closer to finding out with the decision to promote him from Double-A to Triple-A on Thursday. Semien, a 2011 sixth-round pick, busted out in the second half of last season after an uninspiring first year as a…

    Gordon Beckham has hit .327 in 39 games since returning from a broken hamate bone in early June, but the White Sox second baseman injured his surgically repaired wrist Friday.

  8. Trevor Bauer turns in the worst start of the season

    Jun 28, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Not his worst start. The worst start. Trevor Bauer surrendered five runs and six hits while getting just two outs Friday in the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox. He was up to 49 pitches in the first when manager Terry Francona finally had to come get him, putting the Indians in…

  9. The White Sox will trade anyone but Sale… and Konerko?

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko

    That’s the word from CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. The White Sox are open to parting with younger regulars like Alex Rios, Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo and Gordon Beckham and they’d certainly be willing to move Adam Dunn and John Danks. But ace Chris Sale is unavailable, as is 10-and-5 guy Paul Konerko. Heyman doesn’t indicate whether…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  15. 75% of baseball teams’ political donations went to conservative causes in 2012

    Mar 29, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Republican and Democrat symbols

    Via Nathaniel Rakich, here’s a report from the Sunlight Foundation chronicling political donations by Major League Baseball teams, as well as the league itself, in 2012. Shockingly, rich business owners who aren’t big fans of regulation and change spend the bulk of their dough on conservative causes: indeed, 75% of all political donations from teams,…

    By noon we’d already done a dozen posts about players and teams avoiding arbitration ahead of today’s deadline, so something had to give. We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

    This is the third entry in a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Robinson Cano – Yankees Projection: .309/.362/.520, 30 HR,…

  19. Alejandro De Aza picked a really bad time for first GIDP

    Sep 25, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Alejandro De Aza

    White Sox leadoff man Alejandro De Aza was threatening to go the whole year without grounding into a double play, but his long streak ended in the eighth inning of Tuesday’s loss to the Indians. With Gordon Beckham on first and the White Sox down by two, De Aza hit a grounder to second and…

  20. White Sox clip Tigers to open up three-game lead

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Addison Reed

    It wasn’t exactly a classic duel, but the White Sox put themselves another game up in the AL Central by beating the Tigers 5-4 in Monday’s makeup game. The game’s decisive play took place in the fifth, when Dayan Viciedo hit a grounder to short with the bases loaded and one out. Jhonny Peralta decided…

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

    Sep 11, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

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

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  23. Kevin Youkilis starts off hitting second for White Sox

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    White Sox No. 2 hitters have batted a pathetic .215/.265/.323 this season. He won’t have to be the old Kevin Youkilis to improve on that. White Sox manager Robin Ventura will ask Youkilis to help set the table for Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko following his acquisition from the Red Sox on Sunday. Here’s the…

  24. 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,…

  25. 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…
