  • Twins edge White Sox 4-3 Jul 27, 2014 4:33 PM
    Sam Fuld hit a tiebreaking, two-run single off Javy Guerra in a three-run seventh inning, and the Minnesota Twins defeated the White Sox 4-3 Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep. Danny Santana had two RBIs for the last-place Twins, who won for just the 11th time in their last 30 games. Chicago led 2-1 in the seventh when Minnesota loaded the bases against Ronald Belisario (3-7) on walks to Josh Willingham and Eric Fryer around a single by Chris Parmelee. Guerra relieved and retired Eduardo Escobar on a foulout, and Santana hit a tying sacrifice fly just deep enough to left-center field. Fuld followed with a line-drive single up the middle and was thrown out at second when he tried to advance. Adrian Nieto homered in the eighth off Casey Fien, Nieto’s first in 76 career big league at-bats. All-Star Glen Perkins retired Gordon Beckham on a bases-loaded flyout for his 25th save in 28 chances. Jared Burton (2-2) pitched a scoreless inning in relief of Yohan Pino, who didn’t allow a hit until two outs in the fifth and wound up giving up two runs and four hits in six innings. Chicago rookie Jose Abreu had two hits, extending his hitting streak to 17 games, and drove his 79th run, second in the major leagues behind Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera, White Sox starter Scott Carroll allowed one run and four hits in six innings, leaving after just 78 pitches. When Minnesota’s Oswaldo Arcia struck out ending the sixth, he snapped his bat over a knee, sending wood splinters flying around the batter’s box that were picked up by a batboy. Santana’s RBI triple in the third gave Minnesota its first lead of the series. Chicago went ahead in the sixth on Alexei Ramirez’s sacrifice fly and Abreu’s RBI double. NOTES: Twins 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) is to take batting practice at Target Field this week. Manager Ron Gardenhire wasn’t worried about setup for a Paul McCartney concert scheduled for Saturday getting in the way. “He’s going to hit it right through the drums,” Gardenhire joked. . Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) is expected to start Tuesday against Kansas City. While Phil Hughes took a line drive off a knee on Thursday he doesn’t expect to miss a start. ... Ricky Nolasco (elbow) threw a bullpen session on Sunday. . Jose Quintana (5-7, 3.15 ERA) is slated to starts for the White Sox on Tuesday against Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez (7-4, 3.45). .

  • Thomas, Maddux, 4 others inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame Jul 27, 2014 5:08 PM
    Three men who made their mark on the baseball diamond and three who made theirs from the dugout were inducted Sunday into baseball’s Hall of Fame. The six men, three of whom have ties to the Cubs and White Sox, addressed the thousands who gathered in Cooperstown, thanking those who helped them along the way. Frank Thomas Thomas, the most accomplished slugger in White Sox history, was nicknamed “The Big Hurt” for his bat prowess, He won AL MVP awards in 1993 and 1994 and finished his 19-year career with a .301 batting average, 521 homers and 1,704 RBIs. He’s also the only player in major league history with seven straight seasons with a .300 average, 20 homers, 100 RBIs and 100 walks, and the first Hall of Famer who spent the majority of his career as a designated hitter. Thomas played 16 years for the White Sox and established himself as the best hitter in franchise history. He holds the team record for homers (448), doubles (447), RBIs (1,465), runs (1,327), extra-base hits (906), walks (1,466), total bases (3,949), slugging percentage (.568) and on-base percentage (.427). Greg Maddux Maddux won 355 games over a 23-year major league career. Nicknamed “Mad Dog,” Maddux had stints with the Braves, Cubs, Padres and Dodgers and won four straight Cy Young Awards, leading the NL in innings each season. Known for his pinpoint control, Maddux walked just 999 in 5,008 1-3 innings and ranks 10th in strikeouts with 3,371. He also was a sharp fielder, capturing 18 Gold Gloves, and was an All-Star eight times. Maddux and fellow inductee Tom Glavine were mainstays of the Braves staff, helping Atlanta win 14 division titles in a row starting in the 1990s. Tom Glavine Glavine is the rare athlete drafted by two professional leagues in different sports. He won 305 games and two Cy Young Awards, and posted five seasons with 20 or more victories. Only three left-handers have more wins — Warren Spahn, Steve Carlton and Eddie Plank. Drafted by the Braves in 1984, Glavine also was taken by the Los Angeles Kings in the NHL draft that year but chose to focus on baseball. Glavine was on the mound when the Braves won Game 6 to clinch the 1995 World Series and give the city of Atlanta its lone major sports title. Tony La Russa La Russa, third all-time in victories as a manager, 2,728 times in his long career, behind only Connie Mack and John McGraw. He was picked as manager of the year four times and won 12 division titles, six pennants and World Series titles in 1989, 2006, and 2011. Signed by the Kansas City Athletics in 1962, La Russa’s six-year major league career as an infielder was forgettable. He batted .199 with no home runs in 132 games. But after earning a law degree at Florida State University and giving managing a try in the minor leagues, he found his niche, was elevated to manage the White Sox in 1979, and his managing career took off. He won two championships with St. Louis and one with Oakland. Joe Torre Torre, the managerial mastermind of the resurgence of the New York Yankees, excelled as a player — in 1971 he won National League MVP honors with a signature season that included 230 hits and a .363 average, 97 runs, and 137 RBIs for the St. Louis Cardinals — but he became something special in the Yankees dugout. Despite mediocre stints managing the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals (five winning seasons in 15 years), Torre was hired by the Yankees prior to the 1996 season. In 12 years with Torre at the helm, the Yankees won 10 division titles, six AL pennants, and four World Series. Torre is the only man to amass more than 2,000 hits (2,342) as a player and win more than 2,000 games (2,326) as a manager, according to STATS. Bobby Cox Cox guided the Atlanta Braves to an unprecedented 14 straight division titles and 15 playoff appearances. A light-hitting infielder who appeared in 220 games for the New York Yankees in 1968-69, Cox found his niche in the dugout. He retired after the 2010 season with 2,504 victories in 29 seasons, fourth behind Connie Mack, John McGraw and fellow inductee Tony La Russa. The feisty Cox, who also spent four years in Toronto, was a four-time Manager of the Year, three in the NL and one in the AL, and holds the major league record with 159 ejections.

     
  • Off-the-field headlines rarely pretty for Thomas Jul 26, 2014 1:49 PM

  • Giants acquire righty Jake Peavy from Red Sox Jul 26, 2014 3:43 PM
    The San Francisco Giants boosted their rotation for the stretch run by acquiring right-hander and former White Sox Jake Peavy from the Boston Red Sox on Saturday for a pair of minor league pitchers. The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner will start Sunday night’s series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants held a half-game division lead in the NL West against their rival going into Saturday night’s middle game at AT&T Park. The Giants have plenty of familiarity with Peavy, who pitched for manager Bruce Bochy with the San Diego Padres in the playoffs in 2005-06. “It’s great to be reunited with Jake,” Bochy said by text message. “Look forward to working with him again.” San Francisco missed the playoffs in 2013 after winning the World Series in 2010 and ‘12, and the club is committed to making another special October run. The 33-year-old Peavy pitched one of his best games last Aug. 25 at Dodger Stadium. He tossed a three-hitter with five strikeouts and one walk in an 8-1 Red Sox victory. San Francisco received cash from Boston and is sending right-hander Heath Hembree and lefty Edwin Escobar to the World Series champion Red Sox in the swap. Both players were optioned by the Red Sox to Triple-A Pawtucket. Peavy (1-9, 4.72 ERA) has been hurt by poor run support this season, receiving two runs or fewer of support in each of his past eight starts. He is in the final season of a $29 million, two-year contract. Peavy is earning $14.5 million this season, with the Red Sox paying more than $3 million of his remaining salary for the year — $5.15 million. Six weeks on the disabled list last year with a rib injury cost him a chance to have a conditional $15 million option for 2015 if he had reached 400 innings over 2013-14. He is at 268 2-3 heading into Sunday’s outing. Yusmeiro Petit had been scheduled to pitch Sunday for the Giants with right-hander Matt Cain on the disabled list. The Giants made the deal without having to give up their top pitching prospect, Kyle Crick. It’s been a busy week for Giants general manager Brian Sabean and assistant GM Bobby Evans. On Friday, they promoted second baseman Dan Uggla from Triple-A Fresno only four days after they signed him to a minor league contract Monday. Uggla was released by Atlanta on July 18. Escobar went 3-8 with a 5.11 ERA with 96 strikeouts in 20 games for Triple-A Fresno, while Hembree went 1-3 with a 3.89 ERA and 18 saves with 46 strikeouts in 41 appearances for Fresno this year.

  • Sale shuts down Twins in White Sox’s 7-0 win Jul 26, 2014 10:30 PM
    Chris Sale tied a season high with 12 strikeouts in eight dominant innings, Alexei Ramirez hit his 10th homer, and the Chicago White Sox beat Minnesota 7-0 on Saturday night for their third straight win over the Twins. Sale (10-1) scattered five hits — all singles — and became the first White Sox starter to win 10 of his first 11 decisions in a season since Mark Buehrle in 2005. It was also Sale’s 15th career game with 10 or more strikeouts, moving him into a tie for second on the team’s all-time list with Juan Pizarro.

  • Thomas a true fan favorite Jul 27, 2014 12:04 AM

  • Numbers posted by Thomas and Maddux truly amazing Jul 26, 2014 6:34 PM
    Frank was the best hitting slugger I’d ever seen. There wasn’t a pitch he could not destroy, not one spot in the strike zone he couldn’t reach. He made even good pitchers nervous. I watched them twitch and walk off the mound to regroup. Greg was the smartest dominant pitcher I’d ever seen. He toyed with batters, controlling sport’s most direct 1-on-1 matchup with wisdom and creativity. He froze good hitters with called strikes, based on sequence and ingenuity. I watched them shake their heads on the way back to the dugout.
