Leury Garcia went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base as the White Sox defeated the Tigers on Wednesday.
Garcia hasn't been terribly productive with the bat as he notched his first multi-hit game since April 2. He swiped his third bag of the season, but was also thrown out on another attempt, making him 3-for-4 on the season.
Paul Konerko went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the White Sox defeated the Tigers on Wednesday.
Konerko, who has played sparingly, was hitting .105 in 20 plate appearances entering the night. The 38-year-old was making only his fourth start of the season. With Adam Dunn and Jose Abreu hitting so well, it's hard to fault the White Sox for using Konerko so sparingly.
Skip Schumaker (shoulder) will travel to Arizona on Thursday to begin participating in extended spring training games.
Schumaker dislocated his left shoulder during an exhibition game on March 21. He's been taking batting practice in recent days, and he's now ready for game action. He'll go from there to a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville. He's looking at an early- to mid-May return.
Michael Pineda was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday's game at Fenway Park for having a foreign substance on his neck.
Two starts ago -- against the same Red Sox club -- Pineda made news for what appeared to be a foreign substance on his hand. When questioned about the substance after that start, Pineda called it "dirt." Fool me once, shame one you, but Red Sox manager John Farrell wasn't going to be fooled again. Pineda could be in for a 10-game suspension as a result of the ejection.
Hector Sanchez hit a grand slam in the 11th inning -- his second home run of the game -- and the Giants outlasted the Rockies for a 12-10 win on Wednesday.
The teams combined for 22 runs and 29 hits, with Sanchez accounting for four of those runs on one swing. Getting the start for Buster Posey behind the plate, Sanchez also added a solo homer in the eighth inning. They were his first two home runs of the year, and his five RBI more than doubled his total heading into the game.
Troy Tulowitzki continued his hot hitting Wednesday, going 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a loss to the Giants.
Tulo now has three 3-hit games in his last six, and he's homered in two straight games. He's tied with his teammate Charlie Blackmon for the league lead in runs scored with 19, and he leads the National League in slugging percentage (.701) and OPS (1.196). He's a nightmare for opposing pitchers right now.
Michael Morse went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in a win over the Rockies on Wednesday.
Morse now has five home runs on the year. For some comparison, Giants left fielders hit just five home runs over the entire 2013 season. Morse has 15 RBI to go with those five homers, and Morse now has an .897 OPS. He should continue to bat near the middle of the Giants' order, meaning those RBI opportunities will continue to come.
Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with a home run and four runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.
Blackmon's incredible April continues. The homer was his fifth, and his three RBI on the day gives him 16 RBI in 22 games. He also stole his sixth base of the year in the game. He's scored 10 runs in his last five games to increase his league-leading total to 19. And the list goes on. Right now, Blackmon can do no wrong.
