David Robertson blew the save but vultured a win as the White Sox won 5-3 in 10 innings over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
Robertson was victimized by Josh Donaldson on Tuesday as he hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. Donaldson bit him again on Wednesday, hitting a game-tying solo home run in the ninth. The White Sox rallied for two runs in the top of the 10th and Robertson tossed a scoreless bottom-half to grab the win. He's 4-1 and 9-for-12 in save chances with a 2.61 ERA and a 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings.
Marco Estrada gave up three runs in seven innings, taking a no-decision as the Blue Jays lost in 10 innings on Wednesday.
Estrada fell behind in the third inning when Jose Abreu brought in two runs with a double. The third run came in the sixth on a J.B. Shuck single. He allowed eight hits in total while walking none and striking out two. Estrada has been mediocre since moving into the rotation in early May, sporting a 5.02 ERA and a 22/9 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings as a starter. He'll look for better results in his next start, which comes on the road against the Nationals.
Rusney Castillo (shoulder) said he could have played Wednesday in Boston's loss to the Twins.
But the Red Sox opted to play it safe with the 27-year-old outfielder. Castillo banged his right shoulder Tuesday while making a diving catch. He should be back in the starting lineup Thursday against the Rangers.
Jeff Samardzija got a no-decision despite limiting the Blue Jays to one unearned run in 7 innings as the White Sox pulled out a win in 10 innings on Wednesday.
Samardzija scattered eight hits and a walk while striking out five. The lone run scored in the seventh on a Josh Donaldson sacrifice fly. After a rough April, Samardzija has mostly pitched well in May, lowering his ERA to 3.84 with a 1.25 WHIP and a 54/13 K/BB ratio in 68 innings. He'll face the Rangers in a road start next.
Dodgers recalled OF Chris Heisey from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Heisey has been up and down all season and probably won't play enough to carry fantasy relevance in NL-only leagues. His longest stay in the majors this year lasted five days.
Josh Donaldson hit another clutch home run, tying the game at 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth, but the Blue Jays lost in 10 innings to the White Sox on Wednesday.
On Tuesday night, Donaldson hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth off of closer David Robertson. He victimized Robertson again on Wednesday, hitting a game-tying solo home run in the bottom of the ninth. Donaldson finished 1-for-4 on the afternoon. He now has 13 home runs, 35 RBI, and a .314/.374/.590 triple-slash line.
Dodgers designated RHP Sergio Santos for assignment.
Los Angeles needed to clear out a 40-man roster spot following the six-player Juan Uribe trade, and Santos was the odd man out. The 31-year-old right-hander had registered a 4.73 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 15/7 K/BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings this season for the Dodgers.
Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a triple and a two-run double as the White Sox beat the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Wednesday.
Abreu started the scoring, knocking in two with a double off of Marco Estrada in the third inning. He set up the White Sox to take the lead in the 10th inning with a leadoff triple. He then scored on an Adam LaRoche single. Abreu is batting .284/.346/.497 on the year with eight home runs and 29 RBI.
