LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Alexei Ramirez opened the scoring with a two-run single and scored the go-ahead run for the Chicago White Sox, who blew a lead to the Los Angeles Dodgers for the second straight game before coming back to beat them 5-4 on Saturday night. Philip Humber (3-4) threw 99 pitches over five laborious innings, but got the victory after allowing four runs and nine hits. The right-hander, one of 22 pitchers to throw a perfect game in the majors and the only one to do it after undergoing Tommy John surgery, is 2-4 with a 7.47 ERA in 10 starts since his gem on April 21 at Seattle. Addison Reed, the sixth Chicago pitcher, posted his eighth save in as many chances with a perfect ninth to help end a three-game skid by the AL Central leaders. Chad Billingsley (4-5) was charged with five runs and eight hits in six innings before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter. The right-hander was coming off consecutive road victories against Philadelphia and Seattle in which he allowed a ru...

Dodgers Agree To Terms With Onelkis Garcia, 18 Others Signed

The Dodgers front office is working diligently to get all of their 40 draft picks signed before the July 13 deadline. The Dodgers officially have 19 out of their 40 picks signed, so with a little less than a month a way, the Dodgers have just a tidbit shy of half of all their picks signed. The Daily News is reporting that the Dodgers have signed Onelkis Garcia to a contract...

Where did Alejandro De Aza come from?

The White Sox' 2012 season has to be considered a surprise. Comebacks by Dunn and Rios (from the dead), a big season by Konerko and Pierzynski and the emergence of Viciendo have been big factors as has the pitching of Peavy and Sale. But perhaps the biggest surprise has been from the guy setting the table at the top of the lineup, Alejandro De Aza. If you are anything like this...

MLB Trade Rumors: Would Chicago White Sox Deal Addison Reed or Nate Jones or Rotation Help?

With the way Phil Humber and Gavin Floyd have pitched recently, it’s becoming obvious that if the Chicago White Sox are going to make a move at the trade deadline, starting pitcher is where they will look. While third base and left-handed relief pitching have been issues as well, the Sox look like they are beginning to realize that they cannot expect to win a division with two...

Surprise teams of the first half: Los Angeles Dodgers

With the All-Star game right around the corner, we’re almost to the unofficial halfway point of the baseball season. As with any given year, the first half of baseball has given us plenty of thrilling moments, introduced us to some exciting young players, and produced some incredible storylines. The Los Angeles Dodgers are one of those storylines, leading all of baseball in...

Sore shoulder prevents Danks from throwing bullpen session

On the field, the news continued to be less than positive for the White Sox, as they traveled to Los Angeles on Friday night and lost to the Dodgers, 7-6, Chicago's third consecutive defeat. Starting pitcher Chris Sale had his first big slip-up of the season, allowing a season-high five earned runs in a no-decision, even with Adam Dunn connecting on his 23rd homer of the year...

Kershaw suddenly struggling at home

Clayton Kershaw has had tremendous success so far in his career, especially at home. But Friday night continued a disturbing trend for Kershaw at Dodger Stadium. Kershaw allowed five runs in six innings against the White Sox, his second straight home start in which he has allowed five or more runs. It is the only time in Kershaw's career that he has allowed more than three...

Kershaw, Sale matchup fails to impress

LOS ANGELES It was supposed to be a battle between the two best young lefthanded starting pitchers in baseball. However, as is often the case when there's a highly-touted matchup, it didn't quite live up to the billing. Reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw was shaky from the beginning, as Adam Dunn launched a two-run homer in the top of the first...

Bobby Abreu and the Angels both got what they wanted

MWAH has a new writer, Mr. Loren Robb.  Allow him to introduce himself. Loren Robb, an Angels fan since 2000, was born with a baseball in his hand.

Dodgers have interest in Cubs' RHPs Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster

I wasn't intending to write a post about the Dodgers' interest in Ryan Dempster, but it goes hand-in-hand with the Dodgers' reported interest in Matt Garza. Nathan Eovaldi has filled in admirably in the absence of Ted Lilly. There's no timetable for his return. Everyone behind Clayton Kershaw is no better than a middle-of-the-rotation starting pitcher...

Dodgers Have Six Quality Starters, But Ryan Dempster Interest Understandable

Rumors have been swirling for a few days now that the Dodgers are interested in Ryan Dempster, but it’s a bit of a curious fit because the Dodgers already have Clayton Kershaw, Chris Capuano, Chad Billingsley, Aaron Harang, Ted Lilly, and Nate Eovaldi on staff. All six of those pitchers (assuming Lilly has no structural

Tater Trot Tracker: Trot Times for June 14 by Larry Granillo

No perfect games on Thursday. Man, baseball really is going downhill already. Let's get to some trots! Home Run of the Day: Adam Dunn, Chicago White Sox - 24.38 seconds [video] Adam Dunn was dead in the water in 2011. In roughly 500 plate appearances, he hit only 11 home runs. He hadn't had fewer than 38 since 2003 before that. It was hard to believe that such a powerful...
