    Rookie Danny Santana had five hits and four RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins scored nine runs in the eighth inning of a rain-delayed 16-3 victory over the White Sox on Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field. Santana had two hits and two RBIs in the Twins’ big inning, when they sent 14 batters to the plate and had nine hits against three relievers. The five hits set a season high for the rookie center fielder, who was one off his best for RBIs set June 7 against Houston. Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer for the Sox, who were hurt by poor bullpen work. Relievers Javy Guerra (1-3), Taylor Thompson, Ronald Belisario, Eric Surkamp and Andre Rienzo allowed a total of 15 runs and 18 hits over the final four innings. Kyle Gibson (10-8) was the beneficiary of Minnesota’s big day at the plate. The 6-foot-6 right-hander allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings while improving to 3-1 with a 3.08 ERA in his last four starts. Chicago starter Jose Quintana struggled through three errors and two rain delays (for a total of 45 minutes) in the first two innings. He managed to get through five innings on 116 pitches, leaving with a 3-1 lead thanks to a three-run fourth for the White Sox. Alexei Ramirez hit an RBI double and scored on Viciedo’s 13th homer. Minnesota responded three runs in the sixth. Eduardo Nunez had a run-scoring single before Santana’s two-run double gave Minnesota a 4-3 lead.

  • Coghlan’s HR leads Cubs over Dodgers Aug 3, 2014 7:03 PM
    Edwin Jackson pitched six innings for his first victory in six weeks and Chris Coghlan hit a tiebreaking two-run homer, leading the Cubs to a 7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. Jackson (6-11) allowed two runs and seven hits, struck out six and walked none. The right-hander was 0-4 with a 7.39 ERA in his previous seven starts since beating Pittsburgh 6-3 on June 20 at Wrigley Field. The Dodgers dropped two of three to the team with the third-worst record in the majors. Los Angeles’ NL West lead was trimmed to 2 1/2 games over San Francisco, which won 9-0 at the New York Mets. Matt Kemp trimmed Chicago’s lead to 3-2 in the sixth with his fifth homer in six games and No. 13 on the year. But Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo helped preserve the lead in the seventh, making a leaping grab of Carl Crawford’s line drive and turning it into an inning-ending double play by trapping Drew Butera off second. The Dodgers got a run in the eighth off Pedro Strop, but Luis Valbuena responded in the ninth against Chris Perez with his 10th homer. Los Angeles right-hander Josh Beckett (6-6) gave up three runs and six hits in four-plus innings in his fifth straight start when he failed to get past the fifth. The three-time All-Star is 3-5 with a 3.30 ERA in 10 starts since his no-hitter on May 25 at Philadelphia. Beckett, facing the Cubs for the first time since Aug. 28, 2005, struck out Ryan Sweeney with the bases loaded in the third. But he surrendered a leadoff double by Jackson in the fifth, and Coghlan followed with his sixth homer. The Cubs made it 6-2 in the eighth with John Baker’s RBI groundout and a two-run single by pinch-hitter Starlin Castro, who was rested after starting each of the team’s first 109 games. TRAINER’S ROOM Cubs: Newly acquired left-hander Felix Doubront had a bullpen session at Dodger Stadium while continuing his rehab from a left calf strain. Dodgers: Catcher A.J. Ellis missed his second straight game because of a sore right knee, which was struck by a foul tip off Rizzo’s bat in the sixth inning of Friday’s series opener. ... Butera was struck in the groin by a foul tip off the bet of Nate Schierholtz on the fourth inning and was given as much time as he needed to collect himself before going back behind the plate. ON DECK Cubs: Left-hander Travis Wood (7-9, 5.10 ERA) matches up against Colorado lefty Brett Anderson (1-3 3.12 ERA) Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game series at Coors Field. Dodgers: Their next four games are against the Angels, with right-hander Zack Greinke (12-6, 2.65 ERA) opposing Garrett Richards (11-4, 2.74 ERA) on Monday night at Chavez Ravine. The Dodgers have won only one season series from the Angels in the previous 14 years, going 4-2 in 2006.
