  • Cubs front office steps on the accelerator Aug 10, 2014 5:40 PM
    Bob Dylan’s anthem “The Times They Are a-Changin’” would be an appropriate theme song for the current state Chicago Cubs. Roster moves have been coming at a fast and furious pace. While the talent-compiling process had gone on at a rather slow and steady pace, Cubs Insider Len Kasper says it feels like the Cubs have suddenly shifted from second to fifth gear in a snap of their fingers.

  • Rizzo rescues Cubs in 12th for 3-2 win Aug 10, 2014 8:27 PM
    Making contact at the plate was a challenge for the Cubs this past weekend. They struck out 44 times and walked just twice in the three games against the Rays. But Anthony Rizzo managed to make contact, hitting a game-winning single Sunday to give the Cubs a 4-3 victory in 12 innings.

  • White Sox can’t muster a comeback in Seattle Aug 10, 2014 8:15 PM
    Even though they no longer play in the same division, White Sox starter John Danks is still being haunted by Austin Jackson. The former Detroit Tigers outfielder went 3 for 4 with a career-high 4 RBI against Danks as the Seattle Mariners beat the White Sox 4-2 on Sunday. Jackson, acquired by Seattle in a trade before the deadline, has been a constant thorn in Danks’ side. Jackson entered the game as a career .400 hitter against Danks and continued to hammer him. “I can’t escape him,” Danks said. “I’ve thrown everything I know how to. I thought about taking my glove off and firing one in there right-handed just to give him another look.” Logan Morrison began a two-out rally for the Mariners in the second inning off Danks (9-8) with a hard line drive single off the wall in right field. Infield singles by Chris Taylor and Jesus Sucre loaded the bases for Jackson. Jackson doubled down the left field line to give the Mariners a 3-0 lead. “I thought Johnny pitched well enough to win a game,” manager Robin Ventura said. “It’s just that we didn’t get anything going (offensively).” Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez was pulled mid-batter in the fifth inning as Dominic Leone entered to face Gordon Beckham with a 2-1 count. Leone got Beckham to ground into a double play to end the inning. Leone (5-2) picked up the victory and Fernando Rodney earned his 33rd save. Taylor drew a leadoff walk in the seventh inning and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Sucre. Jackson singled to left as Taylor beat the throw home from Alejandro De Aza to give Seattle a 4-0 lead. Jackson raised his career average to .429 (21 for 49) against Danks. “He’s hit some good pitches off of me and definitely made me answer to some mistakes I made,” Danks said. Tyler Flowers homered off Tom Wilhelmsen to lead off the seventh for Chicago. Rodney allowed the first two runners to reach in the ninth. After two strikeouts, Conor Gillaspie singled to center to drive in Alexei Ramirez. Rodney then hit Flowers to load the bases before striking out Jordan Danks to seal the victory. Beckham web gem: Beckham made a diving stop of a grounder from Dustin Ackley to end the second inning. The second baseman laid out to his left and likely saved a run as Jackson was set to score from second if the ball had made its way into right field. Lindstrom ready: White Sox closer Matt Lindstrom is set to return after nearly three months on the disabled list. Lindstrom will be recalled from Triple-A Charlotte for Tuesday’s game against San Francisco. Lindstrom has been on the 15-day DL since May 20 with a dislocated tendon in his right ankle. Chicago optioned reliever Eric Surkamp to Triple-A after the game to clear space for Lindstrom. Sale up next: Left-hander Chris Sale (10-2, 2.14 ERA) is set to open the White Sox two-game series with San Francisco on Tuesday. Sale took the loss for only the second time this season in his last outing against Texas on Aug. 6.

  • Rizzo’s single gives Cubs the win in extras Aug 10, 2014 5:57 PM
    Anthony Rizzo hit a game-ending RBI single in the 12th inning, and the Cubs beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep at Wrigley Field. The last-place Cubs struck out 17 times, running their total to 44 for the weekend series, but Rizzo and touted rookie Javier Baez had two hits apiece to key a 13-hit attack. Carlos Villanueva (5-6) pitched a scoreless inning to earn the victory. Baez struck out in the 12th, but reached on a wild pitch that moved Ryan Sweeney to third. Baez moved to second on another wild pitch by Cesar Ramos (2-4) before Rizzo lined a single to right-center field. The Rays lost for only the fifth time in their last 23 road games.

  • Cubs activate relievers Turner and Ramirez Aug 10, 2014 6:17 PM
    The Cubs made a flurry of roster moves Sunday affecting their bullpen.

The Cubs optioned lefty Chris Rusin to Class AAA Iowa to make room for Turner.

  • Boomers rally again to defeat Rockford Aug 10, 2014 10:09 PM

  • Matt Spiegel: For Baez, the song has just begun Aug 10, 2014 3:57 PM
    Matt Spiegel likes to think of Cubs second baseman Javier Baez as a really exciting new band. He swings as hard as any young punk guitarist thrashes. Time will tell if he can keep it up, and whether he will add the nuance needed to be a more complete hitter. Maybe that guitar player has a decade of mature songs in him he doesn’t even know about yet.

  • Quietly, Gillaspie making some noise for Sox Aug 10, 2014 7:18 PM
    In a season in which 27-year-old Cuban rookie Jose Abreu has dominated, Conor Gillaspie has put together a quiet but nice season. Chris Rongey shares his perspective in this White Sox Insider report.

  • Odorizzi dominates as Rays beat Cubs 4-0 Aug 9, 2014 8:14 PM
    The Chicago Cubs at least are sprinkling hints of better days to come even though they keep piling up losses. Never mind that they fell 4-0 to the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday and got shut down by Jake Odorizzi, there were a few good signs. Javier Baez fought off nine pitches before driving a double in an otherwise rough game for him, and Arismendy Alcantara made several sparkling plays in center field. “Things are definitely headed in a positive direction,” Cubs starter Edwin Jackson said.
